It’s funny sometimes how we think we will feel in a situation… I always thought I’d find school holidays really tough… that I’d be grateful and happy when the kids went back to school… I got myself thinking this so much that I was dreading our first lot of school holidays.
Do you know what… I loved them!… we stayed at home, and I let many things slide that I would usually be so stressed about doing. I didn’t make any plans… we just took each day as it came. There was playdough and lego, there was movies and dancing, there was jumping on trampolines and helping daddy stack the wood pile. There was sunshine and beautiful afternoon light.
I was sad when it all wound up and I realised we’d have to be out the door and back to a schedule!
