Life isn't Uniform

When Marks and Spencer's reached out to me about their latest campaign, Life isn't Uniform, I couldn't help but smile. Life at the moment certainly hasn't been 'uninformed", but then again life never is!

Marks and Spencers New campaign encourages parents to open up about your own uniform mishaps, whether it's coming home with the wrong uniform (I've lost count how many times this has happened!) or the never-ending whoops moments, Marks and Spencer's want to hear it all.

Darcie has now been in school for two years and will be embarking on year 2 come September. I can scarcely believe it to be honest and know that it won't be long till I will be teaching her in secondary school. How scary is that?!

As a teacher and a parent, I have experienced a number of uniform incidents. One that happened only a few weeks ago saw Darcie deciding to do a spot of rock painting in our garden. She independently gathered her equipment, paint, brushes, water and of course a collection of rocks/pebbles. She then set to work. The colour of choice was red. Unfortunately, I didn't know this because of her beautifully painted artwork, but more because our patio was now red and her blue gingham summer school dress was also red too!

Thankfully, as an art teacher, I am used to a number of paint spillages so I'm well equipt to deal with them but I couldn't help but laugh!

If you have your own uniform stories to share, I would love to hear them. You can get involved in the comments below or on social media by using the hashtag #LifeIsntUniform.

Marks and Spencers have a huge selection of school wear which is suitable for those starting their school adventures to those in secondary school. They cater for all seasons, styles and you're sure to find exactly what you're looking for.

We've used Marks and Spencers over the last two years and we can never fault them. Shirts that are easy to iron, stain resistant dresses, skirts that keep their pleats - they really are hardwearing and also great value for money.

So, May half term holidays may soon be over but we're ready to smash the final term and she's already counting down the days until year two!

Don't forget to get involved on social media using the hashtag #LifeIsntUniform
