Here's Lou earlier in the week at the wonderful Crab Shack that overlooks the beach at Teignmouth. We went there after school for celebratory seafood to mark the best school report ever and great SATs results. For the first time ever my dyslexic child has writing skills that match the national average as well as higher scores in all other assessed areas. He loves to read, has an inquiring mind and is super hot at maths. It's more than I could have asked for. I'm as proud as Punch. All that bad parenting has paid dividends. And he's funny as well. That's counts a lot in my book.
It's my last day at work too before six days of annual leave. Usually holidays are spent away from home and this is no exception. We're off to Southend next week to catch up with grandparents and friends. But tomorrow we have a rare free day in Devon. Moorland or seaside bound with a picnic perhaps? With only part of my mind on in tray clearance I'll be thinking today of something that's good to do to mark the first day of the last long summer break before the start of senior school.
