On the first day of term last week reality hit when I realised I had not got the teen a school bag and the toddler was missing shoes that fitted or a coat (OK the coat he can live without a little while longer hopefully)
So when I was asked by the folks over with JD Sports if they could help with their new back to school range I headed over there in the hopes there would still be the essentials we needed!
On the brownie point front it was top marks for JD Sports for the school bag range as we hit one that my picky teen liked straight away and to top it off I like it too. It was swiftly followed with some trainers for nursery for the toddler since he is now starting his 15 hours at nursery and his feet are growing at a rapid pace of knots! to top it off it was then followed by the cutest coat for him too!
I had not really thought of buying from JD Sports before for school essentials, normally it has just been trainers or kit and clothing I can use for playing hockey so it was a nice nudge to start opening my eyes and looking instead of polishing my smug halo!
However, it wasn’t just the kids essentials I forgot either I forgot mine!
I have however I will be making up for it by getting myself organised and sorted for my fitness drive this September as I have my eye on several new bits of kit … that are obviously essentials, because everyone needs trainers in 3 colours .. dont they??
