Holidays are almost upon us. It has been a great term, but we are ready for a break. The holidays are already filling up with things I want to get done.
Straight after school on Friday, I’m jumping in the car and driving up to the mountains for the weekend. I haven’t been up since January so I’m looking forward to catching up with friends and family. I’m taking the kids with me, while Country Boy stays home to do a fire brigade training course. He did one when he was a teenager, but thought it might be a good idea to do a refresher. I’m packing some audio books for the drive. I think we are going to need some new ones by the end of the holidays.
I love a holiday sorting project. The summer holidays saw me clear and sort out the spare room. These holidays it’s all about the laundry. Quite frankly the laundry is a disgrace. We have too much jammed in there, including lots of bits and pieces we probably don’t even use any more. I haven’t sorted it properly since we moved here over two years ago. I’m carpe-ing the diem and getting it into order.
We will probably hit the big town for a day of shopping over the holidays. The girls have been studying up toy catalogues, and their pocket money and show winnings are burning a hole in their pocket. We might take the nut wizards over and collect a few bags of acorns at the same time! Possibly even catch a movie if we are super lucky!
My sister and her family come down every Easter for the long weekend. Looking forward to taking the camera out, having cousins to play with, and some Easter treats. Country Boy and my brother in law plan to build a new chook shed and finish pulling down the old one so that we can start to extend the back yard.
Of course, in between all this, I’m hoping to have some time to read, go for a wander around the paddocks with the camera, and have a bit of down time. If that is actually possible.
