Life just isn’t fair, its school half term, Katie Price and Peter Andre have split up, someone rubbish is going to win Britain’s Got Talent and in terms of the weather its turning out to be like Wimbledon week, except without a Cliff Richard soundtrack. Unless you live in the mother-in laws house, in which case, they are all going on a summer holiday and its mistletoe and wine all round.
I never thought I would start getting affected by half-term when my children hadn’t yet reached school age. But yes! Our regular activities have stopped, the shops, museums and libraries are full of screaming oiks (aside from my kids that is) and you can’t watch television for Dick and Dom. Its not fair! My kids are not at school! Why do I have to suffer from lack of organised activities and provide even more home-based activities?
Take today, I was forced to take the pair of them to the shops, wherein we managed to lose a sock in Marks and Spencers and eat half a baguette in Sainsbury before we had even paid for it. I then returned home in the Zafira thinking how Ive turned into one of those unfortunate souls I used to look at and pity. This thought literally forced me to eat a piece of cheesecake, 2 apple turnovers and a couple of biscuits for my lunch. The weather is not congenial to running so I shan’t be able to counteract the negative effect of this. Thus the downwards spiral continues and its all the fault of the school system.
