Isn't it horrible having to go to work during the school hols?
Up to now I've been fortunate to have time off and/or work from home for the whole of each holidays. But since I've taken on a new position, things are a bit different.
It's not too bad I guess - Tim's work hours mean that there's only 2 days a week where we need childcare....but still....it makes me feel guilty somehow.
So, we try and make the days fun, no matter what our work schedule.....like on the weekend we set up the tent and the hammock in the backyard and the kids camped out for 3 nights in a row.....
.....by the 4th night however, I insisted they sleep in their own beds.....the lack of sleep from the excitement, giggling and torch ganes was a little too much to bear.
Hasn't it been HOT lately!
The kids were hinting strongly about going to the town pool (it's heated.....and crowded......and IN TOWN......so you can see why I wasn't so keen).
I had a better Mummy-idea.
Go outside and play with the hose I said......while you're at it you can wash my car I said.....I'll even give you $5 each!
