I’ll admit I’m tired.
It’s the end of the first school term here in the UK and it has been a long one.
A full eight weeks at school which is one week longer than usual and not did it make a difference.
Staff and students were ready to break up for the holidays.
So what did I do as my first ‘job’ of the holidays?
Visit the allotment of course!
I’ve been feeling guilty these last two weeks because I’ve not made a visit to the lottie mainly because I’ve put in the work during the summer to make Autumn and Winter a low maintenance time of year.
But it was so refreshing to spend time adding to the composters and allowing the fresh Autumnal breeze to clear the cobwebs away.
The grazing rye (a type of grass that fertilises the soil) is a lush green and has taken really well.
My children have already hinted that they miss the allotment and would like to spend time there this holiday.
They also want to go charity shopping for games and DVD’s.
But what I’m looking forward to the most is taking them to my favourite cafe, ordering the best coffee in Milton Keynes sit and watch them draw pictures and read their favourite books as they sip on fruit juice.
I also like reacquainting myself with a superb piece of art that hangs on the cafe wall because it is reminiscent of a bygone era.
Out of all things things that my children would like to do during the school holidays though is to hang out with their dad being creative so whilst they actually want to do that then it’s game on.
What are you doing this school holidays?
