Lottie had her sports day yesterday but James wasn’t there. He chose to go to Lisbon with Amelia instead.
The end of the school year is such a busy time with endless activities, open evenings, performances and outings, all of which parents are asked to attend. When we were together, I would organise his diary so that he could come along to at least some of these things, but I think that his priorities have changed somewhat with Amelia on the scene. I did my best not to get too cross about it all but I can’t help but feel that ultimately it is Lottie who misses out whilst her Dad is swanning around Europe. It’s something we are going to have to re-think for next year so that this doesn’t happen again.
Having said all that, Lottie did brilliantly! And I was so proud to be able to watch her do her very best and to see her chatting away with all her friends. It’s good to see that she is popular at school and has support around her. It was just a shame James wasn’t there too to run in the Dad’s race.
