Easter Break

The Easter break has come to an end for us and Laura has gone back to school for a few weeks then the GCSE's begin. Laura's first exam is on the 3rd May and she's getting worked up and stressed about them already. Over the holidays she did  a lot of revision preparation but r we made her take some breaks to have some family fun.
Some of the things we did was walking on the beach collecting sea glass and eating ice-creams. We had a picnic at Lytham by the windmill and hot chocolate in Ashton Gardens in St Anne's. Snuggled up on the settee in front of a nice warm fire watching films and eating pop corn, baking chocolate chip scones and marshmallow and chocolate cake with sprinkles. They were good.


Whilst Laura was doing her revision I was job hunting and applying for jobs because things have changed at School I'm not needed in the kitchen until September although I'm free to do the exams. I need a proper job now that Laura is slowly getting fitter and I need to think about my future now. I've had an interview with the Civil Service again. It went much better than the last one I had. Fingers crossed this time.


We've been attending some gala "At Home" parties which have been fun for the children and it was nice to meet up with all the parents again. in a couple of weeks it will be our "At Home" with all the queens and their retinues that we've been a guest at.


Time for a rest I think

  3. Can't believe I've only just found your blog, Carol. It's a lovely read. Seaside, hot chocolate and baking are great distractions for teenagers before exams. Good luck witlh everything. Is there a way of me creating an alert for when you publish a new post? x
