These holidays have felt short but wonderful. So many moments that I just wanted to revel in and repeat over and over again… but we picked up our book packs today, paid the school fees and got the big kid’s hair cut. I don’t want to face it, but the holidays are almost over.
Just a few more days to wallow in the glory that is summer holidays.
You know it is summer holidays when…
…when the kids wear PJs all day and so do you.
…when a paddle in the pool counts as a bath 4 days out of 7.
…when you need to factor in an extra half hour to put sunscreen on everyone before you go anywhere outside.
…when you get up in the morning and decide to ditch all plans and head to your favourite beach.
…when dinner is bread and salad five days in a row and no one cares.
…when bed time is put off indefinitely while you water the veggie garden.
…when you are refusing to count how many sleeps until school goes back.
How do you know it is summer holidays?
