Hellish Holidays...

We're only 2 days into the Summer holidays and already I want them to be over. I yearn to drive the kids to school and wave to them, before driving back home and relaxing. I don't know how I'm going to cope the next 6 weeks...

I already have a sore throat from practically screaming at random things. I don't suppose it'll be long before I'm yelling at inanimate objects. Yeah, I'm warning you Mr Toaster. You're next.
"Mum, can I have a Magnum?"
"No."
"Please?"
"No."
"Pretty please?"
"No."
"PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEA---"
"Okay, fine!! Remember to close the freezer properly..."

Honestly. I'm becoming more and more of a pushover by the minute. I suppose soon I'll be letting them sell the house and let them negotiate. I hope that won't happen...

I used to love Summer. When I was a kid, I used to kiss my parents goodbye and skip off to the field up the road and frolic around in the long, daffodil-growing grass in my t-shirts and shorts and sandals. Those were the days.
Nowadays, Summer means 'Hot, but downright wet!". Never a day goes by without rain pouring at least one time per Summer day. I try to arrange days out but have to check the weather forecast before doing so, which is terribly frustrating as I don't even know how to (online, I mean).

This morning I was thinking, "Maybe if I take a break from blogging then my Summer might be a bit better, and less hectic". So I decided to take a fortnight off from blogging. I'll still come on to comment on blogs and such, but not so much post entries.

See you in a fortnight!

i think with the 6 weeks looming ahead, it's ok to be a pushover, just to get some peace! Your magnum conversation seemed only too familiar...

I'm wibbling at the thought of 4 weeks with mine. They finish nursery at the end of the first week of August and then, erm, it's just me, my insanity, a 4 year old and a 3 year old. Dear God....

Yes a blog break might be nice. But then it might be a bit of respite too?

Elsie - Yeah, I need a lot of peace if I'm going to survive these holidays. And I think the Magnum conversations are going to be happening often, as I mistakenly bought some mini ones. Great...

spudballoo - You lucky thing! 4 weeks. I'd give anything to have that.
And, I'm not too sure. We'll see how it goes.

It's a relief to read this. I can relate too. Today is the first day of our summer holiday and it is pouring down with rain. Not just rain but thunder and lightening. I may go mad!

You see the problem there? "No", followed by nine "Pleases" gets them what they want. Pester power!!

You may fing blogging is a necessity in these trying times! :)
