What I’m Looking Forward To!

So today I ran a 5k fun run… The Color Run to be exact and it was amazing.  But in this very instant, the thing I am most looking forward to is eating a huge dinner and then sleeping a long sleep.  That’s the immediate future.

Apart from food and sleep… I am really looking forward to Ollie going back to school. Don’t get me wrong, I adore the bones of that kid and have enjoyed our summer together, but time is going on, weather isn’t great…. and he has so much ENERGY!!!  I think we must be one of the only places that have summer breaks that last for 9 weeks.  It’s too long in my opinion.  4 or 5 would suffice don’t you think?  4 or 5 for summer and add an extra week to Halloween break and another to Christmas break.  9 weeks of finding things all day every day to occupy this little dude who is used to having every moment of the day catered for him at school.  “Mummy I am bored”, “Can I buy this?”, “Can I have a snack?” (that last one gets said about 25 times a day!).  I love him to pieces but he needs so much more mental stimulation than I can give.  He is excited too, about going back to school and we have really enjoyed the weeks we have had together including our little trip away to Scotland.

    We have a school at the end of the street (about 5 houses away) so I’m actually not looking forward to them going back as it’s much more peaceful during the holidays ;D x
