I can’t believe that Bob has finished her first year at school. It only seems like yesterday that I was walking her there for the first time.

first day of school

I left it very late to get Bob’s school things last year. I had no idea that places would sell out of things. She ended up having to have age 3 P.E shorts as there were none left in her size or the size above. I bought the small ones to keep her going and I replaced them as soon as I could.

This year I am going to be much more organised. I am planning a shopping trip to get her some new school uniform and I have already got her school shoes and her bag.

I let Bob choose her new P.E. bag online. Debenhams have a great range of school bags. At first she thought she might like a Frozen bag. She then decided that she preferred a lovely butterfly bag. I was pleased as I loved the butterfly bag and I am fed up of seeing Elsa and Anna. 🙂

When the bag arrived it was folded up into it’s pocket. I didn’t realise it could do this and now I want to steal it. It would be perfect to take shopping!

Bob loves her new bag and is very excited about taking it to school.

The drawstring straps are much thicker than the bags that Bob has had before and the bag in general is much better quality.

The pocket that the bag folds into becomes a front pocket. The bag also has mesh pockets on the sides which could hold a water bottle.

I need to arrange our uniform trip soon as it is already August and I don’t want things to sell out like last year.

When do you buy your school uniform? I am still a novice school mum and I’d love some advice!
