Mum of two, bar manager, lover of wine. And tequila.
My four-year-old, Frank, will be heading back to school on the 8th of March with millions of other children that have been learning at home. With one week to go, what do we need to do to prepare?
Well, first off, where is their uniform?! It seems like an age since I tucked the white polos and school jumpers away in a cupboard somewhere. The P.E kit? No idea. I'm not confident his (brand new) school shoes still fit, so I might need to replace those. There is a book bag knocking around somewhere, as well as a reading log that I have not only misplaced, but haven't filled in since December. We have been reading, I'm just not organised enough to log it (clearly). So this week I will be frantically finding essential school items, and no doubt I'll be spending Sunday the 7th with a glass of wine filling in eight weeks worth of reading. Oh, and if your kid has packed lunch, and the lunchbox has been under the stairs since January, you might have to ask Matt Hancock for some PPE (they've got loads knocking around apparently).
