The school Autumn term starts around here today and it's all change for the family
Youngest Granddaughter starts in Reception class at a village school and her brother - Middle Grandson - is off to Pre-school for 4 days a week while their Mum - my Daughter-in-Law -begins a new job as a classroom assistant in another village school.
Eldest Granddaughter moves into Year 1 in a big town school and her Mum -my Youngest Daughter - will start job hunting having being made redundant from her job at the Opticians, after 16 years, just before the school holidays.
Meanwhile down in Surrey, Eldest Grandson moves up into Year 2 at his big village school and his little brother starts at a childminders for a few days a week while their Mum, my Eldest Daughter, has a new job working as a P.A for the boss of Gardening and Landscaping business.
(Thank goodness my Archaeologist son is still being an Archaeologist and Son-in-Law is still at his job in Business Development.)
I hope the new term goes well for all of them.
