Yes, it's that time again. Even at my great age I still can remember that horrible back to school feeling. Stiff uniform, new shoes, strange routines, that lump in my throat when I said goodbye to my mother. Then, a few years later when I was a mother I welcomed the change of season and the quiet of an empty house for a few hours. Now in the last 10 years every September I again experience my own 'back to school' feelings but this time I actually look forward (mostly) to the new routine and the joys to come in my favourite term.
But even though I don't wear a school uniform anymore, a girl needs a few new bits and pieces to help her ease into a new term doesn't she?
A new school diary (on top of the folders. The school did give me one but it was plain navy blue and well..mmm not very me!)
And of course a new Cath Kidston bag. And if you have a new Cath Kidston bag you really should have a co-ordinating purse (early birthday presents)
I particularly love that it even has the paisley pattern inside.
That makes me ridiculously happy, how sad is that!
I think there is a spotty theme emerging somehow.
Oh yes the wellington boots?? They're not part of my school ensemble I just bought them yesterday from Sainsburys and I'm enjoying looking at my spotty bits and pieces every time I walk past to go upstairs.
It definitely is the little things, isn't it?
