Not long after Easter i start thinking about summer holidays , at this point its normally with a feeling of dread . Easter holidays always seem crazed and the thought of this but at least 3 times longer just seems to much. Then as the weeks pass we start to look forward to it, home work becomes to much hassle and bed times get later and later. Everyone is burnt out and we looked forward to the many weeks ahead .
This year our summer holidays were extra special , we spent two weeks in Florida
Then the remaining month going out with friends and making every day special .
Somewhere amongst the chaos we start to think about going back to school . Each year my back to school plans seem to follow a similar pattern.
Week 1 to 2 – Have a look at the selection available , browse some shops. Realise there is many weeks to school returns and stop.
Week 3 to 5 – Forget about it , now and then it would cross my mind but we are to busy enjoying summer to really think about it.
Week 6 – PANIC , realise school is only a week away and we have nothing. Arrange shopping trips with parents quickly and use local supermarkets and shop online.
Week 7 – Schools back and im making a list of what we forgot.
Normally im a very organised person but each year the end of summer seems to sneak up on us as such a horrible fast rate. Ru sums up the back to school feeling for us below
The first day rolls around though and we are all a mixed bag of emotions . The kids all look lovely and fresh in there new uniforms
And Ru is actually happy over starting big boy school
With all the children away i remember that its not all bad and enjoy the silence . I am able to enjoy tea and me time. Of course im quickly reminded of what we still need so one morning after dropping the children at school i took myself of to Morrisons to top up on the forgotten products. They are this year offering all the school products you could need from uniform to stationary . All of seemingly good quality at decent prices . My goal of the trip was stationary , the kids all had pencil cases for class but needed alot more to cover homework . The stationary selection was technically huge but spread out over at least four different spots on the shop – this was confusing and made the shopping difficult.
The kids though were thrilled with the gifts
