A Big Day and a Bid for Freedom

Tomorrow is a big day in Lipsham Manor. Our son Sam has his first day at Nursery.  Our daughter Anna is settling in slowly to P2 at primary school, and adjusting to a new teacher, who has a different approach and a new way of doing things in the classroom. she’s finding it difficult to adjust, but hopefully, she’ll get there.

I remember the day that she first went to nursery school. We all thought she’d not adjust well, nor cope well. She surprised us all! We’re hoping that Sam will do the same again too!

So, by next week, Anna will be at school for full days, like she has been since week 2 of P1, and Sam will be in for a full afternoon every day. I will have, given walking time to and from nursery, around 2 and a half hours without the kids in the house! It will be totally weird. Possibly liberating. And very quiet! An era is ending, and a new one is beginning. Our kids are growing up fast. I’m not sure I can keep up!!

Over the next few posts, I will attempt to document how we all adjust to our new chapter in our story.

Until next time…………


Wrap and Launch!

It has been very busy again here at Lipsham Manor. My wife Cate has been on holiday the last few days. It has been fab having her around and the kids are loving every minute of it! Our bank balance has not though!

I have mastered my client’s jazz record and it has been manufactured at the duplicators. The CDs sound really good! The highlight of the weekend has to be attending the launch party for the album. Pictured below are the CD covers of the album “Jazz and Whisky” and the single “Lisa”, and me with my very happy client:

My happy client, who is also the artist who created the CD covers, gave me this canvas of the album cover:
