Where did it go? Have we really had 6 weeks?! Surely not! I think there is a conspiracy to shorten the days during ALL holidays! It must be in order that children don’t get too used to being free, bored and get up to mischief! Must be!
So, all that time I had planned to read, sort out the house, decorate the bathroom, write my book, catch up with my friends and remember what my hobbies are! The summer holidays are now at an end!! All good intentions out of the window. But I haven’t started to relax yet!
Having a husband who is self employed does put the dampeners on things a little. I mean shopping and lunching out every day? Who can sustain such hardship? Let alone the guilt of breakfasting in bed. . . . not every day mind! (There are only so many repeats of ‘Heir Hunters’ that one can take on a daily basis!).
So what have I seriously been doing that has maliciously taken up all of my holiday time? I suppose I did manage a family break, over all too quickly. But there was still the constant driving here and there delivering one child or another to their various social events. And the cries of ‘mum you’re not at work now’ totally uncalled for . . . . . . . . . . after all, did they want to arrive on time? There is however a slight irony here in that I spend all my working life having to be at the next school like 10 minutes before I set off then embark on my summer holidays only to achieve a fine and 3 penalty points during my 1st week! Apparently it’s not just the children who get up to mischief!
Roll on term time a safer and more productive use of time! . . . . . . . . . . . No, I don’t really mean that!
