Holidays are over

It’s time for the kids to go back to school and despite having a couple of stressful days with my brood I’m really not looking forward to it. My older girl moves up into year three and is really stressing out about it, she doesn’t deal with change very well. My younger girl is moving into year one and constantly talks about her reception teacher as if she hasn’t actually taken it in that she’ll be in a different class. My little man is going to a preschool for a couple of days a week. It was a tough decision to make to send him but I finally decided that it would do him good to be with other children his age. Sadly, it’s going to break my heart and I’m deeply regretting it already.

My school run buddy, who calls for me every morning so we can walk our children to school together is actually a male who has taken over the role of caring for the children. I guess things will be different for him too as his youngest is about to start nursery. So it will be a big change for us both and we will actually have free time on our hands. I was thinking of doing a course but so far haven’t found anything I really want to do, or haven’t done already. My next option is volunteering, I will have to make up my mind soon, the holiday is over now!

The last few days I’ve spent sewing name tags into the school uniforms. I’ve checked twice, maybe more that I have everything. Going back to school can be such a stressful time it’s good to know everything is in order.
I’ve written before about the uniforms available at Next, but they also do some really cool accessories.
For p.e. my children have these colourful pump bags

Red cloud pump bag £5.50  Navy Star Pump bag£5.50
There are matching lunch bags with bottles
Red cloud lunch bag £8  Navy Star Lunch bag £8
For when the weather gets colder this gorgeous three piece hat, scarf and gloves set with keep them cosy 
multi coloured three piece set £12-14

If you are a real worry wort like me then Next have a fabulous checklist you can use to make sure you’ve not forgotten anything.

    It sounds like the whole "having time" for yourself will be quite foreign to you! My wife and I don't have kids yet, but we're definitely treasuring our personal time now because we know we won't have it forever!
