Brave Captain

Homework is done, school bags are packed, uniform is laid out and shoes are at the door. I’ve done all I can to reduce the morning’s stress levels, but will it help? If the last couple of weeks are anything to go by, then no, it won’t! It’s all the dilly dallying that I find difficult – just one more Lego creation, having a dance to the radio in the middle of breakfast, or a chase around the table; I don’t want my porridge, until it’s time to go, that is; the slowest possible ascent up the stairs for last minute teeth-brushing; then the inevitable demands for that transformer, that book, that car, before we can set off. Fingers crossed the traffic isn’t too bad… Either that or we need a helicopter I think. What a mission. Luckily Classic FM’s school-run tales and music keep us entertained, just long enough for the steam to dissipate from my ears, drink my lemon tea at traffic lights and bring myself back down to earth to present my calm-mother face at school. I can’t be on my own on this one, I’m sure!

So a quick share of my nephew’s birthday card before we watch and ‘Our Girl’ and get to bed ready for another week!

This stamp was one of my very first purchases – Nellie Snellen Young Rebels range – Brave Captain and I adore it. There are a couple of others in the range that I’d love but I think they are quite hard to come by in the UK.
