From where I sit I can see two overflowing baskets of washing to fold and put away. I'm reluctantly drinking instant coffee because I forgot to buy the good stuff. I've had two boys return from their sleepover down the road, and trying their best to to eat me out of house and home. It seems my food is not quite to their standard. The house is a mess and there is already some disagreements. The smallest is refusing breakfast and zooming around on her bike, Fred Flintstone style. I slept in for the first time in a long time. It seems though, that the longer you sleep the more chaotic things get out there. But despite all that, I am looking forward to the next two weeks. I know I will enjoy the four of us being together. I know I will get to enjoy the occasional sleep in, as well as the occasional outing. We will enjoy not having to be anywhere or do anything if we don't want to.
Welcome to the school holidays.
Do you have school holiday plans?
Any interesting outings planned?
Or do you all prefer to stay home?
Enjoy your school holidays, the Victorian kids went back today, so no more lazy mornings for me! xxBrenda
One more week of school and kindy and then we have the 2 week school holidays. I can't wait. I love being at home with the odd outing and play date thrown in. I love being able to lounge around in our Pj's for as long as we want. I'm predicting a very messy house too xoReplyDelete
It has been a long time since I was regulated by school terms, but I do remember the great sigh of relief when they started and just being able to be, to relax and be unhurried with nowhere to have to go and nothing that really had to be done. Enjoy these wonderful days!ReplyDelete
Well today is nice and quite just my youngest 2 year old as my 10 year old has his first day back to school after having 2 weeks off do your holidays start later than us I am in Victoria so now my house work can get into control and I can catch up with a few things needed doing until next school holidays life is truly wonderful.ReplyDelete
Enjoy those holidays Tania! For me it means having my teen home to help with the twins which they absolutely love...bit of hero worship going on there!ReplyDelete
I have the washing basket thing going on too....sometimes it seems like it refills itself as i am folding....so i go do something else instead x
School holidays for us too...and a whole-lot-a-nothing planned. I'm taking each day as it comes. The weather is yuck so we're forced indoors for now - not a bad thing. Let's hope the next two weeks go really slowly.ReplyDelete
School hols start at the end of the week. I have planned lots of knitting , writing and op shopping. No idea what the kids have planned! They usually sort themselves out now at 9//12/14.5 - easy for me. Probably too much screen time sometimes for all of us!ReplyDelete
I always find it bizarre that each State holidays at the same time.ReplyDelete
We are still a week out yet but I too am looking forward to lazy mornings and having no schedule to stick to.
Haha, i could say ditto to ALL of those first few sentences. We have cooked, played with our pets, done some craft, made cubbies outside and had some disagreements too :) planning on maybe one movie trip, some play dates, maybe even a trip to the zoo, definitely going to the library and parks, nature reserves and lots of unplanned time to read, be silly, bake, eat, play play play.ReplyDelete
oh, that is SO true about the sleep-in!!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you are in for a lovely break with your family. My girls are enjoying their first days of school holidays at Dubbo Zoo with their grandparents, so I am enjoying two days entirely to myself in the Canberra walking, eating, drinking coffee...you get the idea :). I am looking forward to having them home again though so we can do pretty much what you are doing too.ReplyDelete
yay no lunch boxes! I'm going to be enjoying the more flexible slower pace as well.ReplyDelete
Happy holidays Tanya.
That's the prettiest laundry! I love how you use real baskets, and the lace edging of that towel.ReplyDelete
My children are home on spring break this week. Yesterday the boys made rafts to float on the pond.
We've been doing a lot of reading, as usual, too. I love the picture of the book on the dress.
