Blooming Lovely!

Tonight has seen the Year 6 Leaver disco for our youngest, Chloe. She has had this dress for a while now and not had the opportunity to wear tonight was perfect!
She looked so pretty, bless her....and SO grown up. I cannot believe that she is about to leave junior school, where has the time gone and what has happened to my cheeky little girly who walked through the school gates in her teeny uniform just a few years ago :(

It was a bit of a rush to get ready tonight, she has had swimming this morning and then StreetDance club after school and we ended up with 45 mins to get home, get sorted and back to the disco.....quick heated session with the curling tongs and LOTS of hairspray to hold her chlorine water laden locks lol. I think sahe looks lovely, don't you? Next week on friday is her last day at Primary before spending a week at her new senior school before the hols start and on friday there will be a leavers assembly and performance....believe me when i say I am already well stocked on tissues....and my eyes are welling up at the thought of it.

Lauren has spent this week doing Work Experience. She has been based in a lovely local florists called Pat's Flowers in Amberstone, nr Hailsham. She has had a wonderful week working with Pat and Tereasa, who welcomed her and have really made her week a pleasure.

Lauren has been really hands on all week and finally came home today with this stunning floral display that she has been lucky enough to be able to make ( all on her own!!!) today. I am sooooo proud of her and what she has acheived....she chose what blooms she wanted to use and knew just how much I LOVED Pat's stunning vintage roses and was lucky enough to be able to pop some in amongst the others
Just look at these blooms, they are just beautiful.Lauren, well done Hun, you are a star!
