It’s only Wednesday, but the countdown is already on for the return to school. The return to routines, uniforms, lunch boxes and trying to squeeze 50 hours worth of stuff into every 24.
I don’t know how time does it.. at the start of each school holidays, 2 weeks seems like so long. A whole 14 days. It stretches ahead of you in an almost endless fashion.
But then suddenly you are at the end of the first week. Easter came and snuck up on us. We had people over, we baked, we got a bunny.
It’s only 7 days of holidays to go and the to do list is still a mile long.
Maybe like us, you have been busy with play dates, work and long promised catch ups filling each day. It’s so much fun, we are loving it, but it’s going too quickly. You promise yourself to slow down and enjoy the small moments.
Now we are at Wednesday. Halfway through the second week. I am working tomorrow, so that really only leaves me Friday to spend with my girl. Don’t get me wrong, we have been together, doing stuff. But our best times come from doing nothing, together.
Drawing, reading, lego, watching movies in our PJ’s. Nipping down the shops for milk shakes. Patting Max the bunny. Simply hanging out.
We have an appointment in the afternoon on Friday. But I am determined to spend the morning doing nothing. Nothing at all, just hanging with my girl.
How are your school holidays going? What do you have planned for the rest of them?
