Win a Vamousse Bundle

The kids are back at school. It’s been a hard few weeks here, L hasn’t wanted to go back, the chopping and changing has really unsettled him and there have been tears most mornings, it’s been tough. On the whole I’m pleased he’s back, but unlike most of the parents on social media I wasn’t desperate for his return, I rather enjoyed having him home with me.

Back to School – Again

I’m feeling really weird about all the back to school messaging right now. I’m pleased he’s going back, he needs it, I’ve tried my best but ultimately I’m not a teacher and in a very poor substitute for playtime with his friends. I’m also sad he’s going back, I really will miss him. I’m worried too, worried it’s too much, too soon, concerned that it might lead to further lockdowns and the impact that would have.

Now I need to stress that these are just the rather muddled thoughts of a stressed out, worried, tired and confused mum. This is not a well balanced, researched and thought out view on the current state of affairs. I know very little about politics. I haven’t researched anything. I’m just trying to get by and writing helps.

Back to School with Phomemo D30 Label Maker

After the Christmas break L was excited to get back to school and I was excited to get back a bit of normality, but it wasn’t to be. Well they went back for a day didn’t they! Depending on where you are in the country you’ll have faced differing messages and rules about the return to school but for us, we got one day back in the classrooms and then a mad scramble to arrange childcare and homeschooling. At least I was going to be organised with the Phomemo D30 Label Maker.

Back to School Help from Learning Resources

Well that’s it, he’s back to school. Today is the end of his first week and we have had a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Tears, anxiety, worry, excitement, joy. I won’t say it’s been great to have him back in school, but it hasn’t been bad either. Just another change to get used to. Overall it’s been tough but manageable.

What You Really Need for Back to School

The summer holidays are nearly over, I can’t quite believe how fast they’ve gone. With two weeks left until he’s back to school, well two weeks and a day, it really is time to get organised.

Now I’m guessing everyone has got uniform, shoes, labels and stationery etc. sorted. So I feel no need to talk about them, instead I’m going to talk about the things you really need but may have overlooked.

Toasty Toes with the Sock Shop

We recently had a lovely delivery of socks from the Sock Shop and I have been impressed.

I have a bit of a weakness for socks, I’m always buying new ones. I love a fluffy sock, long socks, funny socks. So I’m always happy to get socks. Husb is starting a new job and goes through socks at a rate of knots so it was handy to get some for him. Mainly though I wanted to see if we could find anything for the child, socks are an ongoing and incredibly irritating battle. He is determined he cannot put them on by himself and is painfully fussy about what can be on them.
