My favourite thing this week is the end of the school holidays. Don't get me wrong it has been great to have a break from routine, the weather has been absolutely fabulous here in Adelaide and the kids have been on the whole well behaved and not too much at each other's throats.
But having said that I am ready to go back to routine, ready to have some quiet time during the day, ready for the kids to go to bed at a reasonable time, ready to not be a mum taxi, and keeping them entertained what seem like 24/7.
This week I took 4 kids to the pictures without too much hassle (I nearly fell asleep during the film but they enjoyed it). The kids then played all afternoon no arguments just lots of giggles and laughs. Wednesday Dad was home with them and I worked, water slides on the front lawn for most of the day and by the time I got home they were down the beach building sandcastles.
Today we went bowling. Got to say I was off my game this time. The last time we bowled I was the champion, but i don't know what was wrong this time. Maestro whipped all of our butts today.
We then went cloths shopping for the kids, Maestro has obviously been sleeping in fertiliser again and all is shirts are too small. They've gone down to the beach now and i am having a quiet moment to myself.
Sound like they have just arrived home so I had better get of the pc.
Head on over to Mrs P for more FTF.
