    Delighted to see you on the Short List. Well done. Very affirming. A past pupil of the school is there too ‘Eat Well Travel Far’; sumptuous recipes and photographs … and ourselves in the Education section; ‘If Only The Best Birds Sang’. Hope you had a great summer. I think the children are ready to come back now 😉

        Really great. Thanks. But ready to go back. Routine is important really. The new rooms are lovely and spacious. You can see what they look like towards the end of this slideshow: Teachers love all the storage after ‘making’ do in the temporary accommodation. We’ll see you all Monday 🙂

        Many congratulations Aisling. What an achievement to be a finalist in Blog Awards Ireland. It’s a testament to your excellent content. What a standard there is in Best Newcomer category and so diverse. It is rewarding to have your blog acknowledged in this way. It can be like talking to oneself. Really enjoyed your recent post on Play Dates and agreed with your ‘take’ on them. Sleepovers! Now that is another learning curve on the parenting rollercoaster 😉 With every good wish. We’ll have to dig out the party dresses now!
