It's been a long term, everyone's nerves are frazzled, the kids are exhausted and so are their parents. I know that in two weeks I'll be hanging for them to go back to school. But right now, I am very glad that the term is over. Two weeks of no requirement for uniforms, home readers, homework or remembering library books. (To be honest, Ben has been almost exclusively responsible for his library books, I probably only provided reminders twice all term.)
Cheers to everyone that needs this holiday. Best wishes for the lurgi to be kept at bay and some fine weather for throwing the kids out into the park for a few hours.
