The school summer holidays are here and it’s well needed in this house. I have only realised today, now that I feel relaxed sipping tea, how stressed out I have been over the past few weeks.
I think this is mostly due to the heat wave we have had. Not because it’s been ‘too hot’, I really enjoy the heat, but because I spent all of the heat wave digging and moving crushed concrete from the front of the house to the back trying to help hubby sort out an area of the garden so we can have a pool up for the summer holidays.
So I’ve pretty much stressed my self out silly so we can have a more relaxing summer holidays, perhaps it’s the terrifying anticipation that the boys will be at each others throats the whole time that pushed me to get some kind of peacemaker in the garden. They all love water so I guess my theory is this will be a brilliant distraction from the strong desire they have to tear chunks out of each other.
We gave it ago yesterday, you know once the heat wave had past it was clouded over and although sunny a chilly wind was in the air, the boys didn’t seam to even notice they had so much fun and I’m banking on this pool to be my saving grace through the holidays. Of course the great British weather for casts rain later in the week and I’ll be back to playing referee again.
