I am not going to lie, but after 4 years of making packed lunches for Mini, it is not my favourite job, especially as he has an aversion to sandwiches! So when Herley’s got in touch with me to work with them on their lunchtime talks campaign I jumped at the chance as there must be lots of people like me who get stuck in a lunch box rut.

Whichever person you are we have a post for you in our ultimate back to school resource. Whether it is your children first day of preschool or last year of senior school you will find some amazing tips and ideas to make the transition back to school simple for you and your children.
It is so hard to believe that this September Mini will be starting senior school and my years as a primary school parent are over. It is even harder to think that I have been navigating the first day of school since 2008 when Maxi started pre-school. So that is nine years of first days at school. Eight of them at Primary and one year of Seniors for Maxi.
I can not believe that as of September I will have two children in Senior school. For the boys that means a change in school shoes. Now they need to be more grown up and have laces. However, as much as the boys’ new school shoes need to look grown up they have to survive and be suitable for growing feet. So Ecco has sent us some of their back to school range to try out.
Do you have an older child that still struggles with handwriting? I do. Mini has been taught cursive writing since he was three years old at pre-school and school and he has always found it a challenge. So I am delighted to be working with STABILO in highlighting their pen licence and these handwriting tips.
Being at school can take some adapting to for children, especially after a holiday or for younger children who are just starting school. So I am working with Highland Spring to bring you some small ideas and tips for things that you can do to help your children during this time which will make everyone’s the school transition so much happier.
