WOYWW - nothing on my desk but a photo for you
This the picture I managed to snap yesterday as we headed off very early to St Bede's School where is is a enrolled as a day pupil. It seemed to go very well yesterday, although it's a long, long day. They start at 8 a/.m. until 5 p.m. and then have 2 hours of prep. She's coming home for prep this week, but thinks she will probably stay until the end of prep at school and catch the late day bus back to the village down the road and then we will pick her up. She also has school on Saturday, but only from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. and then 2 hours of prep ..... I fully expect by Sunday this week she will be on her knees and sleep most of the day. Still she's officially LOVIN' IT!!! and has said that the girls in her House are super lovely and her Housemistress and all the Masters are great, but it's all so different from the state eduction system that she has been used to.
It was such a rush on Monday to get at least basic uniform and sports kit together for Tuesday morning that we are still many bits adrift, including her blazer .... she got bellowed at a couple of times by Masters yesterday who didn't realise she is very new (term started a good time ago), but fortunately her minders told them the situation and she was excused.
Internet is still very patchy this week as we are had awful problems with the original provider and have had to swtich, but it should be up and running properly next week.
Other news: we love the house, the village and I've made some lovely new friends. Beautiful countryside to walk the dog and very quiet (even in the village centre where we live, although there are only just a few houses). My studio is nearly set up, and I have a new Kiln - for ceramics - coming at I can start to play a bit - I miss crafting and have so much buzzing in my head to get down and dirty with. I miss WOYWW.
