Mummy goes back to college with ChewBICca Star wars Stationary from BIC

A long time ago in a galaxy... not actually very far from here, oh, all right this very living room to be precise I completed a degree with the Open University. Now 9 years on...


Not only is it back to school for the Little Ones, it is back to college for me too! Yes, it is not just the girls who are going to have homework this term! After beginning a job as a Teaching Assistant back in February and really enjoying it, I have decided to take on another course.


I already have a degree and have some other studies in a similar field but I do not have the actual qualification a school needs to pay me as a qualified TA so I bit the bullet and decided to take on the course, alongside parenting three children, running a home, working part time and blogging- must be mad right?!

It has been a while since I last studied, a little over 7 from the last course, so I needed to get plenty of stationary supplies. I have bought myself plenty of paper, a file, pockets and dividers but some bits I still needed.


The kind people at BIC got in contact and offered to help me out. This year they have launched a new Star Wars themed collaboration to aid the galaxy with stationary's secret weapon- THE BALL-POINT PEN!

The new Star Wars range features famous characters from the sci-fi saga paired up with stationary favourites. How about a Star Wars themed 4 colour retractable pen (RRP £2.99), a darth vader glue stick (2pk RRP £1.00), a 4 pack of X-Wing ball pens or even a R2-D2 themed mini pocket tippex mouse (RRP £1,99). 


Not only do they have the usual great BIC quality and the pens are great to write with but they look awesome. No one else at college has my cool pens and half the children in my class at school want to use it too!

So if it is off to college or back to school for you too then, may the force be with you... I hope I can still remember how to reference correctly.

N.B I was gifted these items to include them in this post.

  1. I hope you have a great time - you'll rock it, I'm sure :) I never actually took my TA qualifications either - i have a couple of training and teaching qualifications which got me the job previously, but I couldn't go back now because I never took the TA course :D
