We are well and truly into the swing of the six week holidays!Here is the good and bad stuff about the holidays (for me) so far!
Good: Lie-in’s, mine have been treating me to staying in bed til 8.30ish.Heaven
Bad: The gits won’t go to sleep until 10pm because of the lie-in and it will probably take me weeks to undo the damage.
whad’ya mean go to bed?!
Good: Not doing the dreaded getting ready for school/school run, I hate all the “I can’t find my white t-shirt,the world will implode and everyone will die if you don’t find it and iron it” and “you gave me 267 Coco Pops and I wanted 268”.
Bad: Lounging around in your Jim-Jams all day gets you some pitying looks from the Postman who thinks your a right lazy cow.
Good: Getting to do some fun things with all the kids instead of just the one who’s yet to start school and the others sulk.
Bad: 10 mins into driving to said activity I’m threatening to turn around and go home as the kids are playing who can pinch the hardest and squeal the loudest in the back of the car.
Good: Desperation to amuse the kids sees you making up all sorts of games like hide the Minion.
Bad: You want to kill the the Minions after playing for 3 hours on the trot.Shove your banana where the sun doesn’t shine buddy!
Good: Reading up on other Mum’s blogs to get some inspiration for crafty things to do.
Bad: Realising you’re pretty crap at this Mum stuff ‘cos you haven’t yet made a fully functional caravan from lollipop sticks and PVA glue.
Good: Thinking you’ve done well going to the park for a “free” day out.
Bad: Oh no,it’s not sodding well free,there’s always an ice cream van complete with jolly ice cream man manically grinning away whilst taking your purse,emptying it and throwing it back at you.
Good: You plan your activities for the week #BestMumEver
Bad: The day you planned to do something that involves being outdoors all day it chucks it down monsoon style.
Have you got any to add?
