School's Out for summer

That's it then. Just like that, its the end of school and nursery until September. Six weeks. 47 days.

As much as I LOVE them (etc etc), the thought of the school holidays does worry me. Don't get me wrong, it will be nice not having to get up early and rush around in the mornings, getting the girls up and organised and running from school to nursery. But then, it means having to keep them entertained throughout that time. Breaking up the bickering when they get bored. Please make me feel better - I'm not the only one that worries?!  And of course, having to cut my hours over the holidays and juggle work around them. 

Of course, you try to arrange play dates and keep them amused as much as possible but it isn't always that easy, is it? Dates get cancelled, plans changed. Kids get ill.  

I have gin in the cupboards, along with bubbles, stickers and books for the kids. We have a few play dates arranged with friends and other vague plans.  

So. Six weeks. Here we go!
