Almost five years ago, a somewhat nervous and hugely drowned-in-the-new-uniform Miss U-t-B set off for her first day at secondary school...
Today was her last day before her GCSE study leave begins, and yesterday was the last day, sort-of, in uniform (they were allowed to 'muck-up' hence the jumper had been turned into a cardigan, the blouse had been prepared for signing and the shoes had been decorated, though the blazer, after briefly acquiring hot-glued sequins and PVAed glitter, was then rescued from its jazzing up as she didn't like it!)
I didn't buy uniform for her to grow into - these were the smallest size available!
Anyway, grow she has, though mostly upwards!
Good luck to her, all her friends and all the other children about to embark on public exams!
