Am looking forward to having Myles and Matilda home for the next two weeks...I love the time they are on school holidays, especially the days we just dag around at home.
It saddens me to hear parents complain that their children are going to be "under their feet" or "in the way" when school is out. We often have a "PJ Day" for the very first real day off, that is the Monday of the first week. The kids sleep in then get up and snuggle on the sofa in their PJ's and I cook pancakes and hot chocolate for breakfast. Sometimes they choose to get dressed, other times they have a shower and then put fresh, clean PJ's back on. It's not quite the same in Queensland as it was in Victoria, PJ Day is much more cosy when it's freezing outside. Don't get me wrong, it has been cold here at night, last night was 6 degrees, very cold indeed.
These holidays they have a bit of a list of "things to do"...some will get done, some they are only dreaming of...
- Go to Dreamworld
- Day at Mooloolaba Beach
- See Prince Caspian at cinema
- Shopping with "the girls"
- High Ropes course at Thunderbird Park
- Meeting new cousins
- Sleeping in
- Clearing out the hallway cupboard
- Go to the library
