Runaround

We have one more week of term left and we're playing an interesting game of 'runaround' at the moment.

You know the one where everything is crammed into the last two weeks of school and no matter how organised you feel...juggling is inevitable.  Especially if you have more than one child and all at different schools. No matter how many years you've been doing this for (nine'ish' I think it is for me) it never gets any easier....or better.

I wish they would just spread it all out a little.

It's like somewhere, someone is thinking 'mmmm I wonder what else we can squeeze in?'

The kids are knackered...I'm knackered - 'oh please hurry up and end the constraints of this routine'.

Oh well and hey ho - just one more week to go and then......freedom.

I may of left school in the late eighties, but it still feels so nice after all these years to have that thought in the back of my mind...to still be thinking in a few days time school will be out then it's.....

Freedom!
