It’s been a while since my last proper off-topic ramble, but I desperately need one today! My blog activity has been a bit all or nothing because of slow cinema releases but I’m hoping that’s about to change this Friday. I tend to only write full posts for new releases, and I just haven’t had as many available to watch, and even less that I find myself with lots to say about. This Friday in the UK though we’ve got 4 new releases, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Halloween Kills, Ron’s Gone Wrong and The Last Duel. Wow! My daughter turns 4 on Monday and this weekend is set to be a lot of chaotic fun, so hopefully I’ll find the time.
Speaking of my daughter turning 4, that’s mainly what brought me to start this post! I feel like I’ve done too much adulting today. My little one starts school next September and now is the time to apply for her place. A lot of schools still aren’t doing tours because of COVID which doesn’t help, but yesterday me and my girl went to view a prospective school. She was THRILLED. I mean, she just wanted to join in with everything going on. She even spotted a friend from her nursery and off they went to the playground together! I think we all know who’s going to be crying at the school gates next year, and it won’t be her.
But MAN, talk about imposter syndrome. Here I am, a parent, walking around a school holding an actual conversation with a Head Teacher? Nope. I can’t do that. I’m not grown up enough for that. But I did! And I think I did it convincingly! Dare I say it was even quite fun? When I was about to turn 18 I had a bit of a freak out about being ‘officially’ an adult and that’s the same kind of feeling I’m getting now. What if I don’t pick a good school? What if I pick the perfect school, but we don’t get offered a place there?
Phew. Thanks for letting me get all of that off my chest. If you need me this weekend I’m going to be hiding in a corner with a glass of wine, looking through my daughter’s baby photos and wondering how she grew up so fast.
