Today some of the mums asked me which club I was sending the munchkins to over the holidays. 😳 erm I was planning to entertain them and work at the same time….somehow. They were like who manages for seven weeks without summer clubs?!
I’m now wondering what I’m letting myself in for!
I often dread school holidays. I always want the kids to enjoy themselves but I also need to work. Anytime I take off has a knock on effect to my bottom line so I have to plan carefully and be really disciplined.
The summer holidays last year were really difficult as I had all these plans but no car 😦 Public transport with toddlers in a pram was not working!
This year I have a set of wheels – lucky me! I have planned to work three days a week and devote two days and the weekend to taking my munchkins out. If we do not visit friends or family, we will explore different parks (weather permitting). Our budget is tight so we will see if we can fit in swimming, cinema and soft play.
So far it has been nearly two weeks and we have really enjoyed ourselves. I have been productive with my work and in keeping the house tidy(ish) and the munchkins have been fully occupied.
Yes, they are still arguing over Lego and I am refereeing but they wouldn’t be real sisters if there were no arguments 😉
Have I actually got it right these holidays? So far so good. Just five more weeks to go……
