Last day of the holidays

It's the last day of the holidays. Already my thoughts have moved from lazy, slow mornings and meandering afternoons to an overflowing To Do list and a slew of deadlines.

It's the last day of the holidays. We are baking a cake. An oozy, gooey, chocolate cake. The boys are supposed to be helping me - which means they are watching Batman DVDs and emerging infrequently to lick the bowls and spoons.

It's the last day of the holidays. The school shoes have been tried on - and found wanting. Sigh. Little boys have feet with a habit of growing bigger and bigger. Judging by the size of my sock-matching pile, little boys also have about 100 feet each. I am living with a family of centipedes.

It's the last day of the holidays. Part of me can't wait to see them head back to school. Part of me is missing them already.

It's the last day of the holidays. I wonder what the next term will bring.

Is it the last day of the holidays at your place? Are you excited or ambivalent?


  1. I wish they went back today. They were keen to go back last week and now they are just exhausted and we are all sick of each other. Fighting over LEGO jewels and driving me batty...

  2. Holidays seem to stretch endlessly, then the last few days sneak past in a flash. Before I know it, it's day 1 and no-one can find any socks. As usual...

  3. Last day for kids in state schools - yes - but teachers back today! Apart from anything else, I love the break from deadlines and routines that holidays bring - no clean uniforms required, no lunches to prepare, no homework (except the odd holiday project) and best of all no imperative notes from school (that always guilt-trip me:)

  4. We have a few weeks of summer holidays left. Since I get these days off as well (teacher) I am halfway looking forward to it and halfway not.


Thanks for popping by the Fibro. I love to hear from you!
