After our little break away in Suffolk, we have had a really quiet week. We were all pretty exhausted. I think after lockdown and barely doing anything for months, it’s been a bit of a shock having such a busy summer! But one thing lockdown has taught me, is that actually we don’t need to be out and about all the time, and the twiglets can be perfectly contented just chilling out at home. We’ve also had plenty of back to school prep to be getting on with!
My Stamptastic stamps have been getting a lot of action with all the school uniform labelling this past week! Thankfully quite a bit of the twigs’ uniform from last year still fits, which has saved us a bit of money (for now!) I’m grateful I bought such massive, oversized uniform for them last year now haha!
School shoe shopping
We also braved the school shoe shop the other day. Kind of a strange experience with all the Covid restrictions, but not horrendous! The Clarks shop we visited was really organised and everything was done very safely.
I was really amused at the fact that C has gone up two whole shoe sizes since last September, but H has only gone up half a size! I mean, it fits with their growth pattern, in that she has shot up and he, well, hasn’t! 🙂
Also, I didn’t like many of the boys’ shoes in his size. (Why are school shoes for boys so ugly?!) So I ended up buying exactly the same ones he had last year just half a size bigger! Crazy.
And this photo of H, after he had a little tidy-up haircut ready for school 🙂
So, just a few more days until school starts! How’s your back to school prep going?
Thanks for reading! Til next time,
