A little sit-down

July 29, 2011

Well, it’s been busy so far, this summer holiday. I had visions of relaxing weeks unrolling in front of me, with only the distant, very veeeery distant, text pings of the teenagers’ phones interrupting the calm …… but so far we have driven to Wales and France, had one high-speed tyre blow out, seen two West End Shows (Wicked and Billy Elliot, both brilliant), and watched Harry Potter defeat his nemesis, and we’re still not even into August.

Phew! I’m exhausted. But the teenagers are out today, so I’m taking advantage of their absence to do …. absolutely nothing. I was going to do my review round up, and even push the free family ticket for four to the London Dungeon and assorted offshoots again (doesn’t anyone want it? Seriously? If not I’ll keep it for myself …..) but instead I’m going to put my feet up and have a cup of tea. Ah, lovely. See you soon 🙂

ps All my lovely book club members, don’t forget we’ll be convening soon to discuss Started Early, Took My Dog, by Kate Atkinson. Can’t wait!

    I think I’ll join you in a cup of earl grey while I finish the book group novel of choice! Love the tea cup by the way. x

    Hi, I have not been here for a while – sorry. I also have big ideas for the holidays. I thought there would be lots of relaxing but I seem to have gone overboard with days out planned and long weekends. All good fun though and great family time – just no lie-ins!

      Hi Naomi, lovely to see you! I’m afraid I used to resort to the odd bit of health-giving CBBC when the girls were little and I needed a lie-in … now I have to wake them up in time for lunch! There are advantages to having teenagers …. 🙂
