A pencil and paper

When it came to back to school shopping with my Mam when I was younger it was the stationery side that I was only really interested in.

I’d have a list ready to make sure that I would get everything I needed (and maybe a few extra bits that I didn’t necessarily need). From notebooks, pencil cases to an array of pens and pencils for every occasion I loved shopping for every single piece of it.

Roo seems to have gained my love of stationery and is always on the look out for something new to add to her pencil-case or a new notebook to chronicle he life in. So shopping for that new pencil-case, the perfect pencils and pens to go inside is very important to her.

Tigger on the other hand is just getting started on his writing journey and as he is left-handed this has made me look closely for stationery that I can buy to make his life easier.
