Ah, so the summer holidays are almost upon us.
Like most parents who spend term time running around like a blue-arsed fly trying to remember to ensure both delivery to and collection from school at the requisite times daily, as well as attending to all the necessary related admin (involving as it does packed lunches, dirty PE kit, missing Brownie trousers, piano practice, the beyond-tedious exploits of Biff, Chip and Kipper, unfathomable homework challenges, and the filling in of 486, 000 slips, forms and cheques), I am keenly looking forward to a break from the exhausting norm.
On the other hand…
WTF AM I GOING TO DO WITH MY KIDS WHILE THEY’RE KICKING AROUND AT HOME FOR SIX WEEKS?
Yep. It’s school holiday survival time. I wrote a light-hearted post about it last year, and since most kids are breaking up at the end of this week, I thought I’d dig it out again.
This it it, here.
Then I thought, heck, perhaps other people have written similar posts, or plan to this week. Or maybe instead of joking about it they’ve actually come up with something useful about how to get through the summer holidays, with ideas for things to do, and stuff.
Maybe, I began to reason, rather excitedly, just maybe this could be the start of my very first linky?
Well anyway, what’s to lose?
