Though my kids can wind each other up, and seemingly go from love to hate in less than a minute, deep down the do love each other. If Athena cries Arlo will ask me why she’s crying.

Back to School: Start-Rites Toughest Ever School Shoes

It only seems like a few weeks ago I was buying everything from Athena’s uniform list for starting primary school, and suddenly here we are a just over a year later (because I am not half as organised this year as last!) checking what fits and re-purchasing things she’s outgrown.
