Back to School with Debenhams

The summer holidays are swiftly coming to a close and the children will soon be starting a new school year. It seems like yesterday the children broke off for summer when we had hopes and dreams for weeks to come. Of places, we would go and the fun we would have. Now it’s time for that to end and for learning and education to take a firm place in their lives once again. My eldest daughter will be starting Year 8 this year.

In all the years I’ve been doing the annual ‘Back to School’ shop, I’ve never once considered getting the children Dr Martens footwear. Initially, I thought they’re too expensive, but when you think about those 3 pairs your child went through the previous year, the cost remains the same. So when my children and I were invited along to our local Dr Martens store in Belfast to view their new Back to School range, we couldn’t wait to check them out. When we’ve been in the city we’ve seen the store in passing but never took the opportunity to go…
