for a week in France..

Oh and also..

After 9 years of being a stay at home mum, come September, I'll be a working mum and a Bilingual Teaching Assistant - and life will become a lot more hectic!
It's a totally new start for me, it's scary but also very exciting, I'm so happy to be doing something that I love and feel very lucky that I'll still be able to drop off and pick up the boys most days (and spend the school holidays with them!), but I'm wondering if I will get on with my new colleagues and if I'll do a good job and how I will juggle everything, and I'm not sure what my new routine will look like and when will I ever manage to have a cuppa with my friends, go to the doctor, go shopping, etc.. and will I have enough energy and patience for my boys when I pick them up?? And will I ever have a moment to myself ever again?? That's what's going through my head at the moment..
Hence the weekly planner and notebook I'm taking with me on holiday.. I feel like I need to plan the next few weeks to make the most of the time I have left on my own (and get stuff done!) and with Y before he starts big school. Once I've written and planned stuff, I'm sure I'll feel better!!

Happy half-term to my British readers!
