It’s that time of year again, everyone is thinking of going back to school. We have a bit of a predicament this year as we still don’t have a school for the girls to go to. I am forever hopeful that things will come together once we have moved house and I’ve been to see the schools myself. I already know that there will be places for Star and the Little Man has lots of nurseries to choose from. I just need to find a place for Boo but that hopefully won’t take long (fingers tightly crossed)
I’ve normally got everything I need for the return to school by now but as things are so different this year I was so grateful to receive a whole parcel of back to school stuff from The West Orchards shopping center in Coventry.
West Orchards opened in Coventry City Center in 1991 and has over 40 retail outlets which offer a wide choice of both major high street names and independent outlets. They boast a food court with over 700 seats, and a big car park. They are open 7 days a week and are perfect for your one stop shopping experience.
For my back to school items I received a lovely pack of two kilt skirts from Debenhams. They are a great bargain at just £8 for the pack and fit Boo, aged 6 yrs, perfectly.
The blouses were a pack of two short sleeved from Marks and Spencers, at just £4 also a bargain.
Here is Boo, looking very nice. The clothes were a great fit and she was very happy with them. The skirts have adjustable waistbands too.
Star received a selection of bramble wood stationary from WH Smith. She recieved a Bramble Wood Pencil Case (£8.99) which is filled with coloured pencils, felt tip pens, pen, pencil, ruler, rubber and pencil sharpener. She also received a Bramble Wood A4 Project Book (£4.79) and a Bramble Wood 12 part organiser (£5.59) A lovely design that she will be happy to use for her school projects.
Finally, the Little Man received a lovely Angry Birds lunch box (£6.99) and a matching aluminium sports bottle (£3.99) also from WH Smith.
So whatever you need for your back to school shopping it’s always a bonus if you can get it all under one roof, with easy parking all the necessary facilities and even a wide range of places to grab some lunch.
