Now Nursery Is Over

Today, the kids and I walked along to the nursery my 5yo won't be going back to. We were collecting her puddlesuit, her change of clothes and her Peppa Pig  backpack, all of which she has outgrown. She wore her school uniform for the twelfth day in a row.  She's excited about starting school. She wants somewhere to go and something to do and other children her own age to talk to. She is ready . And, for that reason, part of me was pleased when the Scottish Government's Plan A switched from blended learning to full-time schooling.  Another part of me - the larger part - is panicking. It feels too fast, too soon. I'm scared our left wing parliament has been pressured into Being More Boris. I've learned I need protection and I don't know how I feel about having it withdrawn.  I'm worried people will go a bit daft if they feel the pressure's off.  From my living room window, I can see eight adults and seven children splashing around in one big paddling pool
