Today was officially the last day of our summer holiday, as you know we have been marooned at home. However, this has not been too much of a bad thing. The husband has some idea of how difficult it is to keep two toddlers entertained for long hours. He even did craft activities with them, making ice boats was more than an achievement. I wont be able to match it next week. This is a bit worrying.
Still, I managed to venture out alone with the benefit of the hubby babysitting and my shopping trip proved a tonic. It did make me realise how much I really need a bit of time to myself. Still that’s another blog post in itself.
Anyhow, going back to the old traditions (which we established circa 2008), we decided to end the ‘holiday’ with a bit of a disco at bedtime, thus we have been rocking out to: Peter Gabriel ‘Solisbury Hill’ and Michael Jackson ‘Beat it’ amongst others. Believe it or not this was actually the choice of the children. I think we have musically educated them well (except for Michael Jackson). For those of you who are unfamiliar with one of the greatest musicians of the 1980’s check him out below
