I keep seeing pictures on other blogs of sunshine and blue skies - we've had none of that today. It was raining when I woke up and I think it finally stopped about 3.30pm. Big son had sensibly arranged a lift to his placement today - apparently car pooling is an essential work skill ;)
I've been packing today - I'm off to the Latitude Festival tomorrow - if I was camping like normal I'd be in a panic about the rain and mud but fortunately I'm going with a friend in her caravan so we should have somewhere dry & warm to sleep at night. I've dusted down my wellies and they will probably spend most of this weekend on my feet.

Tonight we've been to little son's school to their awards evening. It was lovely to see little son and so many of his friends get their awards and to hear what the teachers have to say about them. There were plenty of proud parents in the audience tonight. It was also the last time his school brass band will play together in its current format as the older boys are leaving to go to High School and two of the teachers are moving schools as well. Quite sad really as they've really gelled as a group and are all great mates.
Little son was thrilled to get the Key Stage 3 award for Science and he's already planning which books to spend his prize voucher on. Here he is with his cup - needed to take a pic so one can be delivered to Great Grandma over the weekend - it can join the one she has from a few years ago of big son with a cup he won.
Right I'd best go and check my packing and perhaps spend time trying to find a weather forecast that isn't all doom and gloom for the weekend!
See you next week
