Hello and welcome, 2013! How’s it going for you guys so far?
We’ve been thoroughly enjoying the break and the weather has been consistently hot. We’ve BBQed, swum, lazed around, watched movies and eaten copious amounts of food. We’ve talked and planned and just generally chewed the fat. We’ve laughed and joked. In short, we’ve all just hung out.
It’s been wonderful.
The Provider is looking a lot more relaxed these days. In truth, we all are. It’s ridiculous how easily I have slipped back into my body’s much preferred daily routine of staying up late and waking up late. No current need for the alarm clock helps, for sure, but it’s also the pleasant by-product of living in a house with older children (for those of you with young kids there are many sleep-ins in your future, I promise!) No-one moves much before 8am around here at present. I’d be lying if I said I’m not enjoying it.
It’s almost over now though because we’re back to work tomorrow although the boys still have three weeks of school holidays left. I will be braving the crowds in the shops soon to buy school shoes, uniforms and school books. That ‘ker-CHING’ sound you may hear will be my plastic card taking a beating. Kids have an annoying habit of growing over the summer, don’t they?
What have you been doing over the holiday break?
