Big School

The transition from primary school to secondary school for my 11 year old has been trickier than I expected…not just getting the bus and doing homework every day but the Things To Be Remembered!

Bus Money…Buying the Bus Ticket…Lunch…Piano Music…Homework…Watch…Coat…Really Heavy Books…Emergency Bus Money…Calculator…etc. And once there – remembering to go to a piano lesson…not missing the bus…being in the right classroom at the right time…

So here I am driving to her school on Monday morning with the Forgotten Cooking Ingredients (most of which I had to stop off and buy because I’d forgotten too).

And it was all ok and life went on.

The #colour_collective colour on twitter today is corn yellow, which made me think of a recent trip with fellow illustrator Rebecca Ashdown in her yellow van to eat tea and cakes in the sunshine.small yellow van
