At last Emma is going to school. Well, kind of. On Thursday she went along for the morning, with about a third of her classmates. She goes again on Tuesday morning, then finally starts full-time from next Thursday. All schools have different ways of settling the new children in, and it seems that Emma is one of the last to start, but at least she will be going full-time soon. When Robbie started (in Scotland), he only did mornings for about 6 weeks before starting full days.
Anyway, needless to say she had a great time, and thankfully I managed not to get upset! I have been feeling sad recently about the loss of my little playmate. Since we moved here a year ago, Emma and I have spent a lot of time together, and we've explored new places and got to know this area as a twosome (with an emphasis on cafes).
