I love the school holidays

I love having everyone home.

I love not having to rush in the mornings.

I love having three hours of my day back which are otherwise taken up doing the school run.

I love not having to get six of the children ready and out of the door by 7.30am.

I love not having to make sure that school uniforms are ready for Monday morning.

I love not having to pack lunches.

I love that the kids won’t be coming home with letters asking for money for something or other.

I love that that clockwatching stops and we can just enjoy the day.

I love that the younger ones can play together.

I love that we can stay in when it’s cold, and don’t have to worry about hats, gloves, scarves, coats multiplied by seven.

I love that it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing outside, because we’re warm and snug inside.

I love the school holidays so much that I feel really, really down when they come to an end and term is about to begin, and I start counting down to the next school break from their first day back.

I love that there is just one more week to go!
