HS:MS Thoughtful and The Last Day



Well today was the last day before the girlies go back to school. All the uniforms are ready, school shoes nice and clean (I think, must check those actually) and one last trip to the shops today to get Emily a new school bag, then we were done. We are without my car at the moment and the van that we have been loaned is sat at the station where Pete parked it at 06:30 this morning (meetings all day in London), so we had to brave the bus. Now I know I have mentioned the bus in a previous post but I was saved on that occasion by my sister giving me a lift. Talking of my sister, she turned up out of the blue last night and saved the day then also. One of the girls had left one of the van doors open and the battery was completely dead. We only discovered this when Pete and Beccy were about to set off for Lilleshall as it was the first training day back at gym - she didn't get there. No-one in the street had any jump leads and you don't seem to be able to bump start a diesel, although we did try. Then my little sister arrived and yes in the back of her car she had a neat little bag complete with the required jump lead - hooray for Suki.

So today we had a trip into Walsall on the bus, we didn't stay too long, just enough time to get the bag for Emily and a steak bake for them each from Greggs. The weather was gorgeous and once back home the girls were out on the trampoline again.

Today's HS:MS prompt was thoughtful - Absorbed in or involving thought. Show us 'thoughtful' in your space today. I've attached two shots of Emily, one taken today but staged and another (candid shot) from a holiday a couple of years ago.

I'm guessing the close up is the staged photo - It is really lovely, the lighting and everything is perfect, she is a very pretty girl.

What a beautiful daughter you have. I like the close-up the best.
Sounds like you have been having quite an adventure without your car.

Oh they look so thoughtful . . .almost thinking of days past now that school is upon them again. I know that's not true for the first one.

Sarah has literally just come through the door as she got a lift home today, will pop back in a min. She doesn't have brilliant days at school bless her but holds her chin up and gets on with it.

See you in a min
