School holidays!

23 Sep

It’s school holidays!

I love love love school holidays. I get to sleep in most days, I don’t have to iron school uniforms and I don’t have to drag the kids out of bed and bribe/cajole/bully them into brushing their teeth/getting dressed/eating breakfast.

I know, I don’t work full time which is why I find school holidays relaxing and fun. In my defense, I do help my working friends out and I’m happy to do so. To me there’s nothing more fun than being at home with a house full of kids running around and playing.

I’m Italian so I’m good at coming up with bulk meals for the crowd of hungry kiddies. Pasta, hot chips and vegetable sticks, toasted sandwiches, sausage rolls. Even their fights are easily diffused with Paddle Pops. Oh, to be a child again.

Kids have never had it so good have they? They are in such a rush to grow up. Don’t they know that these are the best days of their lives? Don’t they realise how much time they have to be grown ups later?

We have one of those huge trampolines in our backyard. Watching them jump and play on it for hours while I sit back and warm myself in the sun is heaven.

It is hard to stick to our budget during school holidays but I have it all planned. We are enjoying good weather so playing outside is the aim most days at various locations. The money will be spent on Madagascar 3, bowling and one (JUST ONE) visit to Toys R Us for some small toys. Oh, and a quick visit to the Reject Shop for some bits and bobs that will last a day, but what a day it will be.

These school holidays are all about sun, fun, bubbles, jumping and ice-cream. There’s none of the stress of Easter or Christmas and amazing weather most days.

Fun fun fun.

La Dolce Vita,
