One of the most anticipated events in the school calendar will be upon us sooner than you think – book week!
I’ll hold my hands up and admit (as with most things) I am often guilty of leaving the book week costumes until the last minute because a) the notice to tell me about it is still in a crumpled-up ball in the bottom of my child’s school bag b) I forgot and c) um…I forgot. The resulting pre book-parade panic is nothing short of stressful, as I attempt to pull something (anything!) together at the last minute. (On the flip side, I may have also sent my youngest to her kinder dress up a week early once. Really – organisational abilities are certainly not my strong point!)
So this year, as well as marking book week clearly on my calendar Saturday 22 Aug – Friday 28th August with a big thick blue marker pen, (that even I can’t miss), I’m also getting the kids costumes in plenty of time. It’s all part of my stress-less plan, and besides that, if I sprout one more stress-induced grey hair people will start to think I’m wearing a Cruella de Vil wig…every day!
