The Month of (Almost) No School

LifeMarylin16 Comments

April.

This year our "Easter" holidays don't actually include the Easter weekend.

Who's dumb planning was that?

So this friday, the 1st of April, is our last day of school.

Then we're back on the 19th, off again that friday for Easter, back the next wednesday, and off again for the royal wedding.

That's 6 days total the kids will be in school and nursery this month.

Of course this means I have 24 days with my boys. Well, 21 days if you take off the long weekend they're going to be at their dad's for (half-days on the friday and the monday when the leave and go away, so really it's a three day weekend).

Needless to say I'm not going to have my usual amount of me-time during April.

I'll be spending more time with my boys, taking them out to places, enjoying the sunshine (hopefully!), spending time with friends, in between the extra housework that having kids at home over a holiday makes.

So I'm doing a few things to make it easier.

I've nearly finished clearing out their old toys to take to the charity shop and the dump.

I'm going to paint some more journal pages so that I don't need to get out the really messy parts of my art to have fun.

I'm going to slow down my posting to *just* my 365 photos for over the holidays.

There may be a few updates within them of course, as usual.

But I'm not going to worry too much about that.

After all, there will come a time when I'll be fondly remembering the holidays when I was needed so much.

So I'm going to try to make the most of it while I can!

Hope you all have an amazing Spring break!
