can I please just sit down for a while
yup summer holidays is here and I am unlike a lot of mothers in these here parts; I love summer holidays I love all holidays, I love being with my children, In fact I miss my kids when they are at school. A lot if not all other mothers around these parts think I am mad but I don’t care, I adore my kids each and every one they are my best friends and I am proud of each one, ok love fest over with because we are now half way through these wonderful holidays and I am not only completely devoid of money but I am literally worn out.
made kites, and went out to fly the creations we proudly stuck together with brown paper string and painted gaily with all manner of butterflies hearts and mario/sonic – my son ^_^,- and we got thoroughly wet – the english version of summer before the strange heatwave thingy kicked in
made claymation,- mini videos involving making little clay models and moving them bit by bit and then turning our movie masterpieces into files now gathering virtual dust on computer because my suggestion of putting them on youtube resulted in full scale panic from my son -he is autistic and I could not explain to him that he would not suffer either world wide fame or being trolled but he would not calm down until no youtube was promised.
went on many and various day trips to places like good old bridlington the best english seaside town there is this side of the north south divide and butterfly world and many museums and miniature railways and picnics and too many beach trips too mention
So all in all considering I am in fact poor -until I am become a successful author/doll artist, and disabled I rather think when my second daughter proclaimed it was time for yet another beach trip even though I had spent all day down town shopping for oldest daughter outfit from thrift shop/charity shop which I still had to come back and sew all afternoon – I rather think I was entitled to smile nicely and through gritted teeth explain how much I adored and loved all of them but I was in fact going to put my new nightie on and relax in bed, and so I have^_^ put my nightie on and come to bed that is, my new nightie by the way was super bargain charity shop bonus for me and I deserve it ^_^
a great big hug and ‘I understand’ to all tired mums half way through summer holidays with our beloved children ^_^
just remember tomorrow is another day—-of swimming, picnics, beach etc etc etc
be lovely, be kind and be nice to each other have a super day xx
