Well that’s the first week of school over and done’s been quite a busy one for Sophie and she has got lots of homework bless her...I think we need to formulate a plan to help her get through it all this weekend...thank goodness for the internet for research and wallpaper from Wickes for covering books!

Cover your ears if you are sensitive cos’ I’m gonna sing to you now...# Oh oh oh it's magic, you know…never believe it's not so… it's magic! Haha…a bit of a blast from the 70’ you’ll be singing it all day now!
