I am Mother, hear me whinge...

Oh dear, I thought I was going to have it all worked out this time. These holidays were going to be fine, and I wasn't going to start counting down the days till school returned, but things have conspired to chip away at my optimism, and this morning I'm sooooooooo ready for the holidays to be over...

First off, we've been sick, which has meant a lot of hanging around inside TOGETHER...

Then, well the rains have finally come, and so it's been nice and chilly and wet here in Melbourne, and while part of me is rejoicing in all the wetness and resulting greenness, this does make it hard for the kids to repeat their summer habit of spending most of the day running around OUTSIDE, burning off their excess energy.

Finally, Bryn is giving as good as he gets in the teasing, taunting, and outright torturing stakes, and for some reason this seems to have given the boys permission to redouble their efforts to outdo him...

Do I need to remind everyone I don't drive and so just taking off somewhere is just not on the cards.

Also, we're stone cold broke...

So, enough whinged, and only 6 days to go until school is back (not counting the rest of today)!

Rofl, thanks guys...

Yes, yes, I know, I'm lucky to have school taking the big boys off my hands for 30 hours a week from next Monday again...

But still, isn't it funny how quickly a person can adjust and take for granted the peace and quiet of having kids otherwise occupied (than just sitting around ticking each other off)...

Teenagers and the failing parent...
