End of the Holidays

Today was the last day of the holidays here. I know we’ve still got the weekend, but it’s the weekend before the start of school so it doesn’t really count. We’ll be DIYing as well, which will be quite boring for the kids.

We have watched a lot of TV these holidays, and played a lot of computer games. We started the reading challenge at the library, but only completed two thirds of it. The violin has been practised a grand total of once. Everything seemed to be ‘boring’ if it didn’t involve a screen. I think everyone is looking forward to getting back to school.

I had intended to do a lot of activities, have friends round to play and do baking and crafts. Well, we did have some visiting and a bit of baking and er, that was it. It’s difficult to fit in exciting things when you don’t want to spend money on petrol and the weather isn’t really playing ball. We had our main holiday in May so this was just a seven week stretch of time at home. I feel a bit like a bad parent; I should have shoehorned them out of bed and had interesting plans for each day. It just didn’t happen. Now it’s 10 months until I get another chance. Perhaps I’ll start planning half term now…
