The Kiddies are now on half term and I am happy to say we have plans. Having plans for the family when the kids are on holiday is ideal because it means we all get to have some fun. My kids become very restless when bored, like most 4 year olds. And that usually leads to all sorts of mischief. So I like to keep them entertained during their holidays. It makes our lives more fun. No one really wants to watch mummy blog all day.
We spent the last Easter holiday holidaying in the US, which was good fun. This time, we plan to spend some quality time with the family in Essex, and we are so looking forward to that. Monday is bank holiday here in the UK, and the weather is looking promising with plenty of sunshine. So it is likely we will have some barbecue with friends and family. I am seriously look forward to that and I hope it happens as nothing is set as at today.
So for half term week, we have planned 2 road trips to Essex and back, a barbecue party, meeting up with family and friends, a shopping trip, long walks, some time at a soft play (maybe) and many other activities I am sure my sister would have planned for the week.
What plans do you have for the kids this half term? Do you dread the holidays with the kids? I only dread them when I have nothing planned. I remember one of the first half term the kids had when they first started pre school. We were fine for the first 2 days or so because they were shattered. But those days went quickly and they became very bored and restless. We had nothing planned so all we did was go for long walks as far as the weather allowed us. It was horrible. Which is why I have never allowed us have a half term and not have activities planned. It never works!
The fact that I don’t drive makes the holidays even worse. It is a lot easier when you drive. You can just pop the kids in the car and go anywhere. But when you don’t drive, it is not that easy.
I am looking forward to sorting out my driving test this year and getting the car of my dreams. Wish me luck and have a lovely half term with the kids.
