Back To School..

[ Row 1 ~ Shadow shot on Blackpool beach…Telephone boxes in Blackpool { how cool are these!?!}.. New dress to review from Joe Brown ]

[Row 2 ~ My daughter on her first day back to school in year 5 { Aww }… She is loving her new Frozen bag… Lego man In John Lewis ]

[Row 3 ~ Meeting Kim Collins in Birmingham… Sons first day in secondary school, {Aww, when did he grow up!?!} 2 sons back at the same school!! ]

Sometimes you think you don’t really do to many different things in 2 weeks… and them you amaze yourself home much you can fit into a fortnight!!

The last 2 weeks have been busy, busy, busy.  Starting off with a few days in London, then a trip to see athletics in Birmingham, then a 4 nights holiday in Blackpool,  back home for our 18th Wedding Anniversary and a mad few day running around the shops buying last minute back to school things.

The children have now all made it back with all new things on. Oh my how old they look in their new uniform!!

What mum leaves it till 2 days before son starts secondary school to buy a blazer?

Eek this one did!!

Thanks to John Lewis in Nottingham I found him a blazer!! I was so pleased to find one I nearly brought him a girls one!! thankfully they did not have his size on the shelve! so I had to ask, then she realised I was buying a girls blazer for a boy and told me….

Phewwww!! son will not forget this day … Embarrassing mum!!

In John Lewis with the Lego man…

How quickly did the 6 weeks holiday go!?!

I now need a holiday to recover!

Aww a beautiful new dress fro Joe Browns to review,,,

How has the last 2 weeks been for you??

    Glad you found your son's blazer in time and hope his first couple of days in secondary school went well! It is always amazing how much more grown up kids look when they put their school uniforms on after the holidays.
