A COTTAGE KID


When Cait was about 3 we used to drive past the local high school and she'd say "That's where the cottage kids go to school!"

She's one of them, now. A college kid. Today is her first day at Sacred Heart College - my old school.

Check out the oversize blazer (the size down fitted perfectly but it won't next year!). And a red unifiorm is definitely not a glamour colour for a redhead - she tells me she should have gone to St Orans as they wear a green kilt. Ah well!

Anyway off she went this morning - walking to school with a friend. Not nervous. We don't need a ride, Mum, we know where to go!

My cottage kid.

A big grown up cottage kid. :) Cool uniform. Blazers sure look funkier than our old v neck jumpers.

gosh your cottage kid looks so grown up. Gosh it tok me back though with the sandels. I quite like the look of that uniform. Much better than the green and gold uniform I wore.
