Had a wonderful day at Adrien's sports day. A picnic lunch to start on the school field, then time for races. My little guy getting to win the 'beanbag on head race'. I am quite upset though that the schools seem to be taking a non-competitive line on sports days now, so there are no winners apparently. How sad for children who do not excel academically and wait for their day to shine on the playing field, for that now to be taken away from them.

hot, busy days
I never intended to be away for so long, but sometimes life just gets in the way. With just a couple of weeks now until school's out, there are the many end of term activities to juggle between two schools. We have also been having somewhat of a heatwave here, and I don't do heat well, it melts my brain and all I feel like doing is lying down sipping ice water.
