The End of an Era

Thank you and Goodbye


So a bit of a different post today, but nail art still included. In September 1997 I made my first ever walk to Hilldene Primary School with my 5 year old daughter Jade, during this time I was a full time carer for my Mum and had a 3 and 1/2 year old daughter Sophie. In March 1998 I had a little boy, and Sophie started school in the September. Lewis started at the newly built nursery within the school in 2001, and my youngest came along on 2004. Ami also started at the nursery in 2007. 
Today is my last ever day of walking to Hilldene Primary School. 4 children, 18 years later and walked every single day come rain or shine! Now the end of an era. 
So what better way to celebrate this than to do 2 separate mani's on each hand.





Freehand painted pages with all my children's names and the years they started school, and pencil nails. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea for a mani, but this is perfect to celebrate today.
Thanks for reading and till next time stay safe and much love...

  7. These are completely amazing! I can imagine you feel so wistful about the young ones growing up. I remember that feeling every time as a child I had my last day at a school.

  8. Your pencils turned out fantastically! It's crazy how quickly time passes when you have kids. Hope you didn't cry too much. My husband is the emotional one with stuff like this. He was a blubbering fool on our daughter's first day of school.
