Tomorrow (Monday) we are taking a break from the usual life as we know it and taking ourselves off to Somerset for the week.
Notice I said taking a break I was very careful not to say rest, because as all you keepers of little people ( believe me even at 10,14 & 16 they do not change) know you it's almost impossible have rest, peace and quite on holiday, especially in the evenings cue our plan for the week and before you ask we don't have a drink problem, bad weather and bored children leads to cabin fever.
Step 1 To face the day first drink enough (one glass should suffice) scrumpy (wine for the lady, scrumpy smells yukky) to induce that 'everything is funny', "lalalala I can't hear you", "I feel so relaxed", "we have the most wonderful children in the world", frame of mind.
Step 2 Take them for a hike/ramble.
Step 3 Next take them to the fun pool watch them (from the spectators pit) try to compete with each other in trying to see how many times they can go down the fun slide for an hour and a half.
Step 4 Feed them stodgy sleep inducing food (no sugary fizzy pops or caffine allowed), finish them off with hot chocolates.
Step 5 Ahhh! evenings to ourselves.
Well I can dream can't I. Is it illegal to give your children sleeping tablets lol
Wish me luck! speak to you in a weeks time.
