It seems as though my life is going through the 7 stages of school holidays - just a theory I have come up with. It goes as follows:
Stage 1 School Days - You count down to the school holidays and can't wait - they are great!
Stage 2 - Uni Days - School holidays mean uni holidays and that means extra work which means extra cash - Yay!
Stage 3 - Working days (pre-children) - School holidays mean no traffic on the roads and a trip that would normally take 45 mins takes around 15. Downside - all the people at work with kids get preference for holidays at this time - but who would want to take holidays on school holidays right?
Stage 4 - The Toddler years - What the? All toddler related activities come to a dead holt on school holidays. How on earth am I going to entertain my 2 year old for the next two weeks!!!
Stage 5 - The school years when you are the parent - how on earth are we going to do this - getting time off from work is impossible and everyday costs a fortune! Send them back to school!
Stage 6 - The grandparent years - OMG My children are dumping their kids on me now and stage 4 just repeats all over again!!!
So as far as I can tell - it doesn't get any better from here on in....
What brought all this on?
The insanity of Jimmy Giggle at Westfield this morning.
What was I thinking!!!!
(Apparently he is hot...who would have thunk it!)
