the beauty of school holidays
For me the beauty of school holidays is not having to be anywhere. To be able to sleep in just that little bit longer. To have that safe, secure feeling of all children home. To hear the wind howling outside and feeling warm and cozy inside. To cast on for a new knitting project, even though you have others to finish. To have a nicely sized library reading pile to get through. To watch Eat Pray Love alone until the early hours of the morning. To turn the lights out and appreciate the dancing, flickering light of the fire. To just double check on those peacefully sleeping children before turning the lights out.
