It doesn’t seem possible that Summer (what Summer, ask all UK users) is nearly over, but the time for back to school is nearly upon us.
Shorts and swimming clothes are being put away as parents scramble to get all the requisite bits of uniform acquired in the correct sizes and labelled with their child’s name for when they are inevitably lost.
This will be my first year as a mum of a schoolchild, and it’s set me thinking about my own first schooldays a long, long time ago.
I didn’t have to wear a uniform, and this being the 70s all the children wore browns, beiges and dark reds – none of the colourful brights young clothing comes in today.
My parents were quite relaxed about school, so there’s no proud first day photo such as the one I will undoubtedly take of my son and post on social media.
I’m sure, too, I’ll love looking back on it as time goes on and my little four year-old grows up.
