Well, it's officially school holidays now. The kids are bursting full of energy and nagging for our attention.
Who else is in this boat?
My little gifts are still very tired from a long term of school and for some insane reason all our school sport events occur at the end of term, tiring them out until they are getting sick with every germ imaginable and crankier than a lion with a thorn in its pore with me as the poor scared mouse trying to help them. Help me!
All this being said I will announce a shocking truth: I LOVE THE SCHOOL HOL'S!
Yep, because we can sleep, relax and do what we please. parks, movies and I'm truly lucky to say, my children love reading days. We have the fire going and lay about reading, they tell me about each chapter and how what chapter they're up to. they are so proud of themselves with each chap. We're talking about 8 & 9 yr olds. the 15 & 16 yr olds aren't here yet. They arrive on Sunday for the week. I miss them.
anyone else in that particular boat?
needless to say, i probably wont get alot of writing done, but i think with last month being devoted to that, I'll give myself and the clan a break and devote myself to them.
I saw this quote and thought it suited me to a T.
'Being an author is like being in charge of your own insane asylum' by Graycie Harmon.
I wonder if she had kids too.
speaking of which, they are calling for their good night kiss, I'll do that then check out what you are all up to this hol's.
