Well it's been a jam-packed roller coaster of a week alright and now school's finished I feel like a deflated balloon! And now it's throwing it down with rain so that's even better! The Y6 party was a great success midweek with all the kids dressed up in their 'sunday best' - was great to see them all bopping and jumping about on the dance floor - and as the weather was so nice they were in and out of the party room playing boisterously outside on the grass - just as children should, whilst the parents had a drink in the beer garden - just as adults should! Seriously though our young ones have a tendency to seem so grown up before their time these days - it was so refreshing to seem them all behaving just as kids!
As for the leavers assembly yesterday - well ... just a bit of background information for you here. I cried when my kids started and left nursery. Same when they both started school. I also cried when my son left primary so I had a good idea of how yesterday would go! It was a lovely assembly with the kids reciting their memories of school from reception through to Y6, a reading, a song or two and a slide show of the kids photos we'd all provided from reception to current day! As you can imagine it was a proper and I mean PROPER 'Kleenex fest' ... need I say more! My blogging bud Sharron from Style At Every Age left this comment on last weeks post ... 'Been there done that, it's hell on earth. Poor you I sympathise' ... I can confirm that this is an accurate description ... I am so no good at holding it in and resembled Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by the time it was over!
My girl has also been a bit down with all the build up so this one's for her - she and her friends have done many a 'Wake-Up/Shake-Up' to this tune in the school playground over the last few months as well as bouncing around to it the other night at their party ...
Pharrell Williams - Happy ...
And on a 'happy' (sort of) note I can confirm that my Bourjois Volume One Seconde Waterproof Mascara held up it's end of the deal admirably - it didn't budge despite being saturated many times for most of the afternoon - full review will follow shortly!
How's your end of term been mums? Did you need your waterproof mascara?
