I know, I know, I shouldn't complain about all the lovely sunshine we're getting, but I'm melting here! I'm afraid I am one of those people for whom 20C is just about perfect but any warmer and I just wilt. Luckily, the lavender in my garden is made of sterner stuff and is looking beautiful at the moment, so I picked myself a little posy.
Isn't that the most gorgeous purple colour? And it smells absolutely divine.
Now that the summer fair is done and out of the way, I really should be getting on with the other things on my to-do list, but the heat has meant very little crafty stuff going on. I managed to cut out the pieces for another Buttercup bag for a wedding we're going to on Friday, but that's about it. I really must get that done tomorrow though!
In other news, we had school reports on Friday and then parent/teacher consultations yesterday. William's was fine as usual so I didn't bother seeing his teacher, although we are still awaiting his SATS results. As for Joe, well, his marks for effort had gone down and his level for writing is still very low but his levels for reading and maths were really good. I believe that this is in no small part down to Kate spending the hour a day one to one with him. I had a meeting with the Senco afterwards - he can't get any more one-to-one time unless he has a statement and they don't want to apply for one until we have a diagnosis of ASD, as this would ensure that we get the right level of statement, relevant to Joe. But we're going to have another meeting next week to discuss his transition to year two, and hopefully meet his new teacher too. I'm rather dreading the hols, because I know that he's going to find it incredibly hard to settle back into the school setting and routine after such a long break, no matter how well we try to prepare him. So I'm very keen to find out who his next teacher will be and what they can suggest to help make it easier for him.
And now I think I need to get myself a nice cold drink and go and lie down in front of the fan!
