The Summer holidays are here.
I have our summer planner drawn up.
But this year, in addition to the usual round of museums, air shows and foreign travel, I’m adding in a few more low-key things. Things that are simple, easy to achieve and, hopefully, a lot of fun:
Try a new ice-cream flavour: The Boy Child always, always, always chooses strawberry flavour or, if it’s not available, vanilla. I reckon his taste buds might just like raspberry cheesecake or mint choc chip flavours …
Watch a film from when I was a girl: The Boy Child is more than ready to discover the thrill and excitement that is Grease.
Put The Boy Child in charge of the photography for a day: this is so easy to achieve, I wonder why I haven’t considered it before. (Probably because I wasn’t prepared to let him loose with either my dSLR or my iPhone X…)
Have a guilt-free at home day: I dislike the feeling we should always ‘do’ something every day in the holidays. What if our thing was to simply stay at home, in our pjs and watch a film in the middle of the day?
Ignore the bed time routine for once: It might be fun to let The Boy Child choose his own bedtime for once. We could take Tilly for an evening walk. We could sit in the garden and try bat spotting. We could go to the pub.
What’s on your list for Summer?
