Week 13.40 – Pete and Dave visit Edinburgh

Week 40 (30 Sep to 6 Oct) saw lots of excitement, good and bad. Firstly, MissKatja started Nursery proper this week. Her first full 5 hour days. She’s not sure yet, and tends to swing between the excitement of all those toys and other kids to play with and the terror at being left behind. […]
