So this might be a sign of my getting old, but there’s no denying that as we hit the half way point in our second week of the school holiday, time is simply flying.
If I’m brutally honest I was wondering as the holiday approached, how long it would be before I was wishing school was back on. I’m aware that might sound really sad, but it’s the truth. Of course that moment might still come but – with a week and a half down already and two weeks where Ellie will be away with her Dad fast approaching – I’m now thinking the holiday will just not be long enough!
More than time flying though – I’m shocked at how I’m already forgetting what we’ve done so far in the holiday! How pathetic does that sound?!
We’re having such fun and I want to make sure I not only enjoy every minute of it, but I remember every minute of it too. So here’s some pictures that represent our first week of the summer holiday…
A home made box for the loom bands has been created and the loom bands sorted!
We went to Rosliston Forestry Centre to enjoy the fresh air, open space and bouncy castle.
We enjoyed yet another day out with the National Trust, visiting Wightwick Manor.
Believe it or not we have actually had some time to relax, which in Ellie’s case seems to mean constant snacking.
I guess that’s a pretty good summary of our first week of the summer holiday – so let’s hope this post aids my failing memory; and reminds me that the days haven’t just disappeared in that ‘getting old time warp’ but have really been enjoyed.
