Kids across the United Kingdom are heading back to school after two, long weeks of Easter holidays.

And judging by reaction on Twitter, the fortnight has flown by for teachers enjoying their well-earned rest and dragged on for parents dealing with their terrors for twenty-four hours a day.

Last night it began to dawn on some teachers that the Easter holidays were coming to a close.

Anyone else getting the #backtoschool anxiety thing?

Sleepless nights awaited teachers dreading the return to full-time work.

In fact, teachers, parents and pupils alike all had trouble rising for the school run after a fortnight of lie-ins.

Children attempting to pull as sickie were met with little sympathy...

One teacher was occupied by a slightly different concern: tights.

The school run was less stressful than usual for some parents.

Suprisingly, parents didn't seem too upset to see the back of their children...

Love them really but always feel like a bit of a happy dance when the kids go back to school! #backtoschool #EasterHolidays pic.twitter.com/ZRHbanKohh

Parents did have one piece of advice for teachers returning behind their desk this Monday: beware of 'the floss'.

Is there some sort of antidote to this? 🤔🤪They never stop! #Mumofboys #thefloss #Backtoschool Good luck to teachers everywhere this term 😬🤦🏻‍♀️ pic.twitter.com/okjhqIaQdA
