The last month seems to have vanished in the blink of an eye.

Home ed filtered out really and I can’t recall anything of note.  We did have an end of term picnic but I really wasn’t in the mood for it by that point.  Work, Guiding, household chores and holiday prep dominated the first few weeks of July.

Then the last two weeks were holiday.  Rural Wales and we leave the car behind means it really is a break, don’t even get phone signal.

We walked the cliffs and coastal path (in the rain),

lots of board games, quizzes, word games, reading, sewing and even some colouring.


We even managed a bit of TV (well dvd) the boys loved Police Squad and Yonderland.  Sam was also very taken with Ghostbusters.

Holiday did the trick and relieved the stress that was catching up with me.  Have a few big decisions to make about the causes of that stress but have a bit of breathing space.  Taking  a month off home ed now while Jack is about to unwind, work (as in paid type) and plan.
