This week saw the end of the Summer holidays (sigh) and I don't know where I would have been without the grandparents help this Summer. I am truly thankful for the lovely memories they've enabled my girls to build during the last few weeks. There were also little moments this week that I will treasure, such as receiving a set of photos in the post from my mum and dad of the times spent with the girls during their stay with them in the Midlands. A cherished record of the fun they had together.
I was also touched to receive a 'delivery' from my mother in law which consisted of a bunch of Sweet Peas, a couple of courgettes, a cucumber and a bundle of runner beans, all lovingly grown in their garden.
So it was back to school on Thursday. As usual, it was all very last minute with the preparing of school lunches, PE kit bags and I didn't quite get round to booking the girls in for a 'back to school trim' at the hairdressers, but there they were, on the school playground, ready for action and eager to learn at ten to nine on the dot. New classrooms, new teachers, new 'line' to stand in on the playground. Its the eldest's final year at primary school, so its a pinnacle one. The youngest has gone into year 2. I know, where does the time go, I ask you?
This week we also celebrated my niece's first birthday. Her first year seems to have flown by, I can't believe she is one already. My brother in law's mum made her a cake that tasted as good as it looked.

The moment that made me smile to myself was discovering my nephew's 'sausage men' that he'd constructed from the buffet :)
Hope you've all had a good week, containing some special moments to treasure..
This week I'm linking up with Hannah over at Make, Do and Push!
