GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. Winner notified.
I can’t believe the summer is nearly over and we are now busily thinking about back to school for the children!
The start of this year was quite insane as we entered lockdown at the end of March because of the coronavirus pandemic. I remember those first few weeks dragging on, even though we busied ourselves with home improvements, but I think we were waiting and checking news regularly expecting for the lockdown to end.
Well, it didn’t.
Almost five months later and things aren’t back to normal.
The kids, however, will be returning to school in two weeks, into new classrooms, new year groups, new teachers.
It’s been a strange year and it’s not felt like my youngest really completed his reception year at school which is quite sad. There are so many amazing events they have in reception at his school that he missed out on and can never experience now.
Onwards and upwards though. Back to school in September and I will have a year one child and a year four child! Crazy!
Are you busy prepping for back to school? I have a great giveaway today for you if so, with loads of useful back to school goodies. Read on to learn more!
