We are well and truly into the swing of the six week holidays now aren’t we? Kids have spent approx 40% of their time grassing on each other 50% kicking shite out each other and 10% playing nicely. This is how our School Holidays are going…
Pro: Lie-in’s, mine have been treating me to staying in bed til 8.30ish on the days I’m not working. Heaven.
Con: The sods won’t go to sleep until at least 10pm because of the lie-in and it will probably take me weeks to undo the damage. Me time? What’s that?
Pro: Not doing the dreaded 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” “you gave me 127 Coco Pops and I wanted 128” and “my homework was meant to be in a week last Wednesday”
Con: Lounging around in your Jim-Jams all day gets you some pitying looks from the Postman who thinks you’re a right lazy cow. Knob off and bother Mrs Goggins won’t you.
Pro: Getting to do some fun things with all the kids, well, when you can bribe the teen into it and he doesn’t spend the whole day moaning how long it’ll be before we go home. Important Snapchat business to attend to don’t you know.
Con: 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.
Pro: Desperation to amuse the kids sees you making up all sorts of games like hide the Shopkins.
Con: You want to kill said Shopkins after playing for 3 hours on the trot. Shove your cuteness where the sun doesn’t shine!
Pro: Reading up on other blogs to get some inspiration for crafty things to do.
Con: Realising you’re pretty crap at this crafty stuff ‘cos you haven’t yet made a fully functional caravan from lollipop sticks and PVA glue.
Pro: Thinking you’ve done well going to the park for a “free” day out.
Con: Ohhhhh no,it’s not sodding well free, is it? 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.
Pro: You plan your activities for the week #BestMumEverrrrrr
Con: The days you planned to do something that involves being outdoors all day it chucks it down monsoon style.
How’s your Summer going? Have you kept your sanity?
