Took daughter to look around a primary school. It was wonderful. Clean, friendly, bright, modern and bursting with energy, light and busy happy children. M sat down straight away and started playing with some play dough, completely at ease.
I made the children a pasta sauce with spinach for their tea. They adored it. It made me feel smug and happy that I had opted for that over fish fingers again.
As I'm tidying up after the days activities, the sun has appeared for the first time today. It looks like lights have been switched on outside. I feel lifted and ready to start all over again tomorrow.
