and I confess I did secretly follow the coach a little way in my car to make sure the driver was driving ok lololol.

She was so excited bless her. I know she'll have a great time, however, I shall be watching the clock til 3pm when she's due back. God knows what I'm going to be like when they are in year 6 and off on their week away !!!!!!!!!! I dread to think !!!! lol xx

Lol.... What are you like?

I've been on dozens of school trips and we've all always enjoyed ourselves with no mishaps.
I last went last Friday, - to Legoland. As there were plenty of adults I only had to keep an eye on 2, so that makes it much easier.

I'm sure your young one will have a great time.

Mine is due his week away in September and Im having a breakdown just thinking about it lol


ButtercupFields Report 3 Jul 2008 15:16

Well I admitted it to Muffy before, but I stalked my son every inch of the way when he first went to school on his own. Dodged in shop doorways, hid behind trees, pulled hat down over face, it's a wonder I wasn't arrested! He told me years later that he knew I was following him but he decided to ignore me...Mother love, eh? lol BC XX

Never mind secondary school.



AnninGlos Report 3 Jul 2008 18:02

Muffy, One thing puzzles me, how would all the best bits of her lunch go missing? Don't they look after their own lunch? Have you any idea?



Muffyxx Report 3 Jul 2008 18:06

Haven't a clue Ann.

She came out of school with a face like thunder. Told me she only had a sandwich and an apple......I'd shown her what was going into the bag this morning there was Chicken nuggets.....a little tub of ketchup. Two biscuits and some carrot too but she says she didn't get that.

We were told to put the lunch in a carrier bag so as not to be carrying around heavy lunch boxes...... I put her lunch bag into the carrier bag which contained her raincoat and her hat and suncream (good old weather lol) I can only assume it fell out or something.........poor little thing xx
