We have been on Summer holidays here for almost 3 weeks now. As always I posted to social media saying just how excited I was to have the kids home now for 6 whole weeks (7 in Harry’s case) and of course at the time I genuinely mean every word of it….AT THE TIME!
Fast forward 2-3 weeks and we are a tad stir crazy and getting on each others nerves more than a little – I didn’t plan many activities for the beginning of the holidays as we all needed a little wind down time with no plans of being up, dressed and out of the house by a set time.
We have had a good fair share of movie days snuggled on the sofa in our PJ’s until after lunch being more than a little lazy, we’ve done the local free activities within walking distance as Paul uses the car for work during the day – parks, town to the market and lunches out, feeding the duck and play dates, and of course the boring Tesco trips which have cost a lot more than they should as they kids add to the trolley and are both having growth spurts currently and won’t stop eating.
Now the kids are a tad bored with each others company and the novelty of no routine has worn off for us all, I’m struggling to get any work done and they want entertaining ALL THE TIME – we have just been away camping and have another holiday at the end of the summer break book, plus I have booked in the car for a few day trips so it’s not like they won’t be having fun.
I certainly know it’s the Summer holidays when I find myself saying:
“Close that fridge you can’t be hungry again, you’ve only just eaten”
I’m not alone in this so I set about asking fellow bloggers “You know it’s the Summer holidays when I find myself saying….”
