Happy month of May! Term 2 has just started after a really great school holidays, our first one ever. And I think we more than emerged unscathed - we seem to have come out the other end with flying colours. No one is more surprised than me!
I used to dread the thought of juggling work, freelancing and having to take multiple days off on a semi-enforced break. It's already so hard trying to fit Lauren's many medical appointments into our packed schedule, let alone a 2-week hiatus every term on top of that.
But having been through one school holidays now, I can see the many benefits. Not in the least the extra family time and the opportunity to go on new adventures (we stayed on a farm for part of the time and that was lovely!). Lauren also survived, and even had fun at, her first few days at vacation care, which given her additional needs was a big relief for all of us.
I'm already looking forward to the next break, so if you have any winter holiday suggestions I'm all ears. And in the meantime, I hope you have a wonderful month!
