I have been a bit quiet lately and for a very good reason. Each year my children’s school has a fete and it is a very big deal in our house. As a working mum I often don’t get to do the ‘school mum’ stuff. I miss a lot of assemblies, excursions and classroom visits because my day job is being a teacher – which means when my kids are at school, so am I. But the fete is the one time when I get to feel as though I am giving something back to the school community and embrace my other love – baking! So for the last 2 weeks every spare moment has been spent baking and freezing in preparation for the big day.
The day dawned overcast and rainy but as always seems to be the case at St Kieran’s fete in Brighton; as the people started rolling in the clouds started to roll out. I got to watch my kids perform their dances and hubby and I did our hour on a stall each and the kids bounced from rides, to games to animals, even Nanna conquered the ‘Space Invaders’ ride with my gorgeous boy
