Anyone out there who is losing their first child to school this year?

I’m finding it hard to deal with and would appreciate some comforting words, I really get the feeling I’m going to lose him forever! I know he’ll be ok and I’ll be ok but I can’t help being worried, will he make friends? Will he be lonely – any comments will do.

I thought you might like to read the poem we made for his nursery, his last day on Friday ~

A is for Alex who is lovely & bubbly
B is for Babys so bouncy & cuddly
C is for Clairey who’s so shiney shine
D is for Drawing & colourings I design
E is for Ethan who will miss you all
F is for Fun, it’s been a ball
G is for George my bestest friend there
H is for Happy, it’s obvious you all care
I is for Imagination you broadened for me
J is for Jumping about with such glee
K is for Katie, she’s very smart I say
L is for Laura with her happy smiles all day
M is for Music bugs, Kimbo’s just fab
N is for Never going to forget you, today I feel sad
O is for Outstanding consistency all the way through
P is for Playing, my favourite thing to do
Q is for Quaesitosaurus, dinosaurs I love so much
R is for Rabbits, Carrot in his hutch
S is for Scrummy lunches, especially the hotpot
T is for Teaching me such a lot
U is for my Uniform, I’ll come and show you soon
V is for Vicki who is pretty and teaches good tunes
W is for the Week days I know now by the song
X is for Xylophones which we bash and play along
Y is for Yoga, Tattys favourite crew
Z is for Zillions of reasons I’ll miss you

Hope you like it!

Impala Impressions – baby casting session @ Baby Bea, West Malling, Kent

Impala Impressions is excited to announce their first casting day in Baby Bea, a unique baby boutique in West Malling, Kent. See for directions and for details of castings and prices which start at £55.00.

Castings will start at 10.00am until last casting at 4.00pm and we hope to see you there.

On another note, I spent the morning on my home visits, starting in Romford, Essex where I met Kate, her husband and the gorgeous Aaron, 6 months. He was an absolute star and Kate and her husband really gave me something to smile about, such a bubbly, friendly couple that I can’t wait to see them again when I deliver Aarons cast back to them!

Don’t forget to book your home casting sessions (Kent only)(and some parts of Essex within reason) for a professional, friendly and very competitvely priced service. Just see our website or call Justine on 01732-521537 for details or to look at buying a baby casting kit to do this exciting and very rewarding art yourself.

Glastonbury……….. for the 1st time

I have to admit I was sooo excited but abit scared on the journey to Glastonbury having heard nightmare stories about parking 7 miles away from your camp and the toilet stories …… well I’m sure most of you have heard about them!

On arrival with my soon to be good mates Nicky and Nicky we found “Vickys Place” very easily and only a 10 min walk from the car. Clare and Vicky had arrived on the Wednesday with the campervan and put up our 3 second ‘throw in the air’ tents so we were greeted with nothing to do but have an ice cold g & t to celebrate the start of the festival.

Walking down into the festival on the Thursday night took my breath away – it is like a small city! wrist bands and tickets sorted we were in and straight into bands, people, dancing and later …………. the famous Glasto rain!

I was blown away by the festival, like living in a different world, full of peace and harmoney and the music was awesome. Lily Allen blew me away but not as much as Blur on the last night – the memory will last forever and I think about the performance every day since being lucky enough to have watched them.

See for some great photos and details of the festival. Hope to see you there next year!
