Woman Hijacks Kids' Back To School Photos With Bottle Of Champagne

This week marks an important day for parents across the UK - their kids are going back to school after the coronavirus lockdown.

One mum was so delighted to have the house to herself again that she celebrated by cracking the champagne in a series of hilarious pics.

Rachel Boast's relief is one that is likely felt by many mums and dads who, over the past few months, were forced to homeschool their kids when schools temporarily closed for lockdown.

The mum-of-four simply couldn't contain her excitement, and decided to mark the occasion by hijacking their annual uniform shots with a bottle of bubbly.

Rachel's husband Steven Boast took the snaps on Wednesday night (September 2), showing her daughters Maisie Brown, six, Poppy-Rae Brown, eight, and a rather embarrassed looking Amy Roberts, 11.

Rachel said: "I do a back-to-school photo every year and it's normally just the kids at the front door, but how many times do we have six months at home with children, so these are special photos for a special occasion."

Noting that she was saving the champers for the right time, she added: "When the kids went to bed I ran myself a nice hot bubble bath and had a few glasses. There's a couple left in the fridge and I'm having one this afternoon with my feet up.

"I should take out shares considering the amount of alcohol I've drank over the past six months. The house is really quiet now, but I'm excited to have more me-time."

Although she managed to adapt the school curriculum into fun activities, what many have dubbed as 'the longest summer holidays ever' led to some rough patches.

"There were times when I was questioning my parenting abilities, asking myself if I'm doing the right things, and I'd have good weeks and bad weeks," she added.

But she made it through and is now able to finally have some alone time - and it's even inspired the former NHS worker to sign up for a counselling course at night school with hopes to become a high school mental health counsellor.

Opening up about her kids' return to school, Rachel said: "Now they're happy to see their friends, and they're happy for routine because we lost the structure.

She concluded: "I'm relieved they're back and there's going to be thousands of mums who feel the same.

"If it makes people laugh then that's great because we've not had a normal six months, so why have normal back to school photos."
