Today is an emotional day for us as Gareth has the first of his "lasts"
Today he has his last band lesson in St Josephs. He first started playing the trumpet under the guidance of Howard Ward in 2011. He has progressed from enthusiastic to tuneful over the last three years. Today is the last time I will line his trumpet case, music stand and bag by the front door, the last day he will carry them into school.
I think the next week is going to tough as each day brings yet another "last"
