So, in Matthew's first week of pre-school he cried *after* I left on Tuesday, not at all on Wednesday (and greeted me with "I didn't cry this day" when I picked him up), and when I tried to leave on Thursday, but in each case he got over it more quickly and really enjoyed himself - going for a lie down on the sofa apparently helped. Today he cried again when I tried to leave, but I preempted it a little by suggesting he go straight for a lie down, and he let me go without more protest :)
Friday we had a nice mummy day with Kreepie Krawlies and lunch at the deli, and on Saturday we visited the village fair (Fun Weekend) at Little Shelford and Matthew spent some of his pennies on the stalls and wasn't interested at all in the falconry display but did want to know when the new playground equipment they're raising money for was going to arrive (is it here now?). It was a bit soggy but the rain had let off a bit by then so we had quite a nice time. Sunday was glorious though and we spent most of it up at Wandlebury and the Gog cafe, and picked lots of blackberries on the Roman Road.
