School Holiday day 1
Here in Scotland children now have an autumn break. This can be a great time to discover new places, explore nature or simply spent time with your family. Do you have something planed for this time or take it day by day and see what will come
My kids are home from school today for Head Master’s holiday (new to me, not even sure that’s what it’s called). Have to admit we’ve had a quiet day of balanced screen time and reading. It’s a relief that the bickering is subsiding between him and his little sister. We are off to see ‘Small Foot’ soon to cap off our long weekend. It’s definitely feeling like Autumn here. Knits and quilts are in order 🍂 #tintinadventures#schoolsout#lepetitgermain

Words can't describe the past 5 years with these guys. What an amazing experience it has been being part of a brotherhood at The Roos.
Golden memories were made and will never be forgotten as long as the Legend of Paul Roos lives on
Dankie aan almal vir die laaste paar jaar en sterkte met die pad vorentoe ♥️♥️ #schoolsout#matrix18#university

Half term has begun and I was determined not to go stir crazy so I took the kids to the local botanical gardens. I'll be honest; I wasn't expecting much, but they were beautiful and still blooming. The sun was shining, the park was relatively quiet (meaning we were only ambushed for selfies a mere three times) and the minis actually enjoyed running around looking at the plants. We spent a while watching this greedy bee (not like the Exeter bees) mopping up the pollen without a care in the world and enjoying the gorgeous scents of the blossoms (a pleasant change after sewergate in our back garden). We hugged some big old trees and wondered what stories they could tell and received some funny looks as we did so.
As an aside, today was also a momentous day in the yoga in the garden household because Scarlett lost her first tooth! The tooth fairy better not enjoy her g and t too much and forget to do the required monetary exchange!
Overall a good start to the holiday.
GRANNIES | Don’t you just love them. My mum’s on Granny duty this week as Matilda’s nursery is closed and Mr D and I are working (trying to make the most of holidays for my mat leave) I called when I landed into Heathrow to see how they were and she’s put me to shame with her supergran like powers. I’ve done your washing, your ironing, made your bed, gave the place a wee Hoover.... she went on...... “mum I only left this morning” “yeah but you know I can’t sit still” She’s the magic cog in the wheel for us, allowing Mr D and I to work and for me to travel as part of my job! In today’s age grandparent play such a key role and I know i definitely don’t show my gratitude for all this supergran does! #granny#supergran#grandparents#schoolsout#childcare#workingmum
If only. Leo and I did academic test practice yesterday. It took oodles of tolerance and therapeutic techniques... mainly suggested by him... for us not to rebel against the sheer tedium of it and kill each other. We would have been fine telling stories.... mx
