End of term happiness

The small people have just arrived home and their school bags have been dumped unceremoniously in the hallway ~ abandoned and not required for two and a half weeks. This can only mean one thing ~ School's out! End of term has arrived at last ~ Hooray!!

Today is the start of the Easter Holidays from school and I have to say that we are all looking forward to it immensely. We are all feeling tired and grumpy and a little bit yucky and definitely in need of a well earned break. I love the fact that school holidays allow you not to have to follow the usual routine ~ I really do appreciate that! I love not having to get up early and rush breakfast or try to nicely persuade small people in my best non shouty voice to get dressed and clean their teeth. Then there's the mad rush out the door at the last possible minute to try to get to school before the bell rings. No more of that for two whole weeks!

Being able to slowly potter around the house in the morning will be just blissful~ I'm really looking forward to that.

There is nothing planned ~ we are pretty much going to take each day as it comes and do whatever takes our fancy on that particular day.

I am really hoping that the weather will stay as lovely as it has been over the last few days ~ but as long as it stays dry and we manage to get out and about then I for one will be happy. Hopefully there will be lots of trips to the park and some long walks along the beach looking for seaside treasures.

There has not been much happening on the crafting front again this week as I have been ever so busy decluttering and listing what seemed like a million things on eBay. It's all very time consuming this eBay malarkey! Trying to take a decent photograph and then compose a lovely story about the item can actually take quite a while to do ~ BUT it is ever so exciting when someone actually makes a bid and buys one of your items. I really do get very excited when that happens.

I hope that you are all looking forward to the Easter holidays as much as I am and that you have a very enjoyable weekend :O)xx

Enjoy the break! I totally agree about the bliss in not having to get up early and rush around making breakfast and lunches :)

Good morning Jackie. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I really need to get busy and bring all the blogs I love to my my home page. You are among them, but unless I go to that design page where you add the http:// address it won't show up on home page. I have about 50 more sites I need to do that with. Anyways, I can see a lot has been going on in your corner of the world and I checked back and saw your WIP, the blanket squares. How lovely, that blue is so eye-catching. I hope you find the time to complete that project and share it with all of us when you do. I can understand your happiness at this Easter holiday for your children. Mine are grown but I remember how good it felt to be able to not hear an alarm clock interrupting a good sleep. Have a good Easter...
Susanne :)

You are so right, it is lovely not to rush and clock watch all day long. No early starts, no packed lunches to make, lounging in pjs till lunchtime... yay for holidays!
