AFTER 12 years of preparing children to return to school I was feeling pretty cocky when choosing the adhesive book coverings. Quite clearly I am not ready for the metallic adhesives. One hopes teachers don’t judge school books by their covers.

  1. I hear you on the book covering and I'm only into my second year. I'm trying to convince all the other parents we should boycott contact.

  2. Wow- you're game! Thank goodness those years are over for me.I can't think of anything worse than covering books in this heat! I had it down to a fine art when I worked in the school library, but that was plastic.By the way, I envy you with your earlier post about wearing belts. I seem to have lost my waist completely! The belt looks great!

  3. We have non-stick baking paper.You would think non-crease adhesive would have arrived by now. The creases look a little like waves and are very cooling to a heat adled mind:)

  6. I'm a terrible contacter. I found some in a cupboard and used it to cover styrofoam boxes to make them into pots for the garden, but had to get a friend who studies architecture to do it - apparently they get a lot of experience in contacting in their course. If only my degree had equipped me so well!

  7. My mum gave up on that book covering thing - as I'd decided against it; i wanted EVERY spare space on the school books to be available for my boredom and biro pens.

  8. I know!!! They don't make contact like they used to. I suggested that Isabel occupy herself in class with the sharp end of her compass and prick little holes in all the bubbles and squeeze the air out with her fingernails. I tried it - quite a soothing activity actually.

  9. Kate, How did Isabel take that advice? Rolling of eyes? Did she even have or know what a compass was. My lot rolled their eyes and I am pretty sure the youngest asked the oldest high school student whether they even had a compass. I have bought multiple sets every year for goodness knows how long. This year I bought one and have it stashed away until someone comes forth and tells me they need a compass, set square, protractor....
