time flies

well i cant believe its been so long since i last posted... April..was months ago and that was the last time i thought to leave a little blog post..
i think i just get  caught  on the wheel of life and i find myself going round and round without particularly anytihng interesting or extraordinary to say or write about but i am also rather busy at the same time so i hsould technically have tons to talk about!!

anyways tomorrow is a big day for the pretty vintage household.. the baby of the family is donning his Clarks sensible school shoes and his owl emblem school jumper and crisp white polo shirt ( along with horrendous black tracksuit bottoms which have been introduced for the reception class..but lets not go there!!) and will be making his gorgeous cute little footsteps into the infant playground that hes been going to for the past two school years but this time will actually be going in through the classroom door

oh my days...i cant believe that my baby is going to school...it seems such a short time that i was writing this post about returning to work after my maternity leave


i actually cant believe Ive been blogging for so long you know it doesn't feel anytime at all but the move-arounds that this house has seen ...theres been tons!!
i cant believe how that time has flown...and I'm filled with all sorts of misgivings.. "have i wasted the time we had just me and my little man??" "have i done all i can to prepare him for school life?!" "if he stays hot school dinners for a change will he know how to carry his tray of food!?"....
am i normal in thinking this ?? when my oldest boy started school 2 years ago i didn't feel any of this..he was so confident ..in fact i think he'd been waiting to go to school since he was 18 months!!.. now i just feel that my little boyo is going into the big wide world of education and i have to watch from the sidelines when all i want to do is carry him through it and speak for him at every stage...( this is possibly coming across as control freak mummy and I'm sure i am so no excuses really!!)

so anyways i cant say much more than this as its all a little bit emotional and you know i hate this salt water coming from the edges of my eye!!.. so all i shall say is at least i shall have abit more time to take lots of lovely pictures of makeovers and room changes and even possibly a Friday frock or two!! ( ahh remember them days..oh well maybe i'll come back with a bang (....or a sparkler ... we dont want to get too excited!!)


  1. Woohoo! You're back! Sparklers all round, I'd say!

  2. Aw! My three year old is still in pre school and I feel the same! I sometimes wish I was there with her during the day, seeing if she's alright. All kids are different and it is natural to worrya bit. I bet he will have a lovely time and I'm sure you've been an ace Mum. I am missing my little one today.
    Anyway, I love your blog and I am looking forward to your makeovers and lovely bits and bobs that you find. Good to have you back,
    Tracy x

  3. aahh bless your heart i understand just how you feel i worried about Dylan my second one more so than Jake again because Jake always seemed so grown up. I think its harder with the second because if like me he is your last its letting go of the baby stage knowing that period in your life is over. Its very hard but i think you have to look in wonder and awe now at the exciting little journey he will take now and you will still be creating wonderful memories as he goes through the next stages of his little life. Its good to see you back. Take care, dee x

  4. It's lovely to see you back..have missed you!
    It's natural to worry about these things and work yourself up into a right old state,but I'm sure your little one will settle in very quickly.There are a lot of Mum's feeling just like you right now.
    Make sure you meet a friend for a coffee and a chat after you have dropped him off.
    Take care
    Love Bellaboo XX

  5. Nice to see you back, as always!! Looking forward to seeing more posts in the near future.............but I know what you mean - I'm exactly the same - lots to tell you all but just don't get the time or enthusiasm to put it into words!!
    Take care

  7. Glad you're back! I hope you (and your little one) survived the first day of school - I remember it well. I cried on the way home every day for a week. It does get easier. Make sure you're busy for the next few days. Hope you don't leave it as long until the next post! X

  8. you are totally normal. My little girl has been at school for over a year now, and I still worry about the little things, but most of all, I miss our days together. I'm so glad I was able to keep her home with me (despite people treating me like a freak for not putting her in nursery). I loved our time together, and even now, she'll mention things that we did 'back in the day'. Recently she wanted us to have a picnic 'like the one we had before I went to school'. I was so happy that she'd remembered it.

    She's happy at school, and is learning well, so I know all is well there. And I make the most of my time while she's there. My favourite part of the day is when I go to pick her up. Love seeing that little face!

    Hope school has gone well for him.
