I don’t mean to cause a panic but in 18 days time the kids finish school….yes really in 18 days time! Already there is a flurry of activity as I panic buy school uniform early whilst they offers are on and sizes are in stock, and I spent far too long scouring the local shoe shops sale section yesterday looking for a bargain pair of autumn school shoes.
One really should get out more, or maybe less; who knows.
There’s also the dilemma of what to get the teachers for that all important, sentimental end of term gift. Teachers gifts is a new thing – we certainly didn’t have them in my day (gosh that makes me sound old!). A quick search on the internet for teachers gifts and I ended up at Gift Cookie, which is an online Aladdin’s cave of personalised gifts from notebooks to sweetie jars and tea cups, there is so much to choose from. The team at Gift Cookie had kindly offered me the chance to choose a piece to review from there and so for Addison’s teacher I wanted to choose something a little bit different.
