One of the boys we pick up in the morning too, not so often now, as the Year 12's have different start and finish times depending on their timetable. He's been part of our school pick-up and drop-off since Year 8, so I'll miss him next year.
What I also love about school pick-up is that I usually get there about 30 minutes before the bell goes so that means I get to read...uninterrupted and with no guilt attached, you can't do the ironing or housework if you're not at home. This week I've been trying to finish "Second Honeymoon" by Joanna Trollope which I started ages ago. It's taken quite a while to get "into" but I'm getting through it a bit quicker now. I want to get it finished because tomorrow night is Bookclub and that means a new book to read. Gotta be happy with that.
