I think for the first year ever I’m welcoming my kids returning to school next month, two weeks and two days left (but who’s counting). Their 235 meals and 75 snacks a day has taken its tole. I was starting to panic and feel really underprepared but just last week I took an afternoon and did a marathon online shop for back to school (The courier’s will hate me this week) we literally needed new everything.. we dragged the last life out of their uniforms in June so nothing was salvageable. Just the stationary now, they enjoy picking that up with me, that’ll be the fun part, My little girl is growing up so fast and wants a A4 Illustration style Notebook and Illustration style lunchbox (she’s always been a little quirky) my eldest boy wants nothing from April Road (he’s too cool) and the baby of the house can’t decide between Dinosaur thermos lunch bag and the Sea animal school lunchbox. Sure doesn’t everyone love a new school notebook or lunchbox. Filling their schoolbags and putting their names on their bits and bobs is my favourite part, brings me right back to school, sharpening your new pencils and smelling your new rubbers, arranging your bag so neatly and promising you’ll keep it that tidy all year….. I’ll finish on that happy note..
