My boys are growing at the rate of knots so they regularly need new school uniform, luckily I get to recycle the clothes of my eldest for my youngest to save a few quid although I am not sure how much longer that will last as he is catching up on his brother!
Today is the first day back after the Easter holidays and I am thinking it might be time for a school uniform refresh again! I had a naughty habit of tumbling everything to an inch of its life in the colder weather so with everything able to air dry now I should be able to avoid shrinking them in the process and keeping their uniform looking its best for a little longer.
I have been debating dropping their school logo and just having plain jumpers and polo shirts as it saves a small fortune! But the boys grumbled they would not know which way to put on their clothes without the logo for help! I love finding a sale on school uniform and at the School Uniform Shop they have some huge reductions on their original prices.
After all I do not want to spend a fortune on buying school uniform, seeing as youngest in particular comes home often covered in paint and glue! But as long as he is happy if I am buying uniform cheap enough I do not mind in the slightest, least he is having an opportunity to unleash his creative side. He also uses his sleeves as a napkin for everything, so he comes home wearing half his school dinner!!!
They have a great range of colours on their website, which always helps, it seems most schools adopt a different theme and it can be tricky getting just the right shade to fit in with everyone else. I will probably have a nose at their jackets; the boys need something more lightweight for the warmer weather. I cannot believe the sunshine today, when the last couple of days of the holidays have been full of rain!
