This time of year always makes me think back to my school days. The sadness at the end of a long summer, a nervous excitement about going back to school, and a realisation that the warm weather was on it’s way out.
The last couple of weeks of the holiday were my Mum’s chance to get us organised. Bedtimes slowly got earlier, new clothes and shoes were bought, and name tags were sewn in anything and everything.
My favourite part of the School holiday ritual was buying new stationery. Each year without fail I would drag Mum round WHSmith as I chose a selection of shiny new pens, pencils, erasers and pencil tin. My favourite (still to this day!) was coloured ink. I used to love buying brightly coloured ink cartridges for my fountain pen and using it to decorate my exercise books in class.
