summer holiday wobbles
Today is the beginning of the Scottish summer holiday. We delivered teacher's presents (elderflower cordial) and collected missing jumpers and gym bags from lost and found. We said good bye to teachers and some friends and brought dozens of jotters, hundreds of pieces of paper and art home.
The summer holidays! It was eagerly anticipated by the offspring but I am not sure if I should cry or laugh. Seven endless weeks ahead to fill with fun and purpose, 3 very different age groups to cater for.....not to mention the unreliable Scottish weather. I think I am going to bury my head in the sand until the weekend. This year we'll be going back to Cornwall for our family holiday but we won't be visiting Switzerland and spend time with family there. The children are disappointed not to visit Granny, Mo-Granny and uncles and aunties, swim in Granny's pool, the river or any other outdoor pool, and be spoilt all around but have promised to be good as long as I offer as much fun as granny does. A tall order! Wish me luck!
What are your plans for the summer? Am I the only one daunted by the sheer eternity of the holidays?
