I’ve just had an awful realisation. D, now 10, might have as few as 6 summer school holidays left. We’ve had a great time this summer. We went away earlier in the year and have made the most this summer of living by the sea, with visits from friends and family. Dh has had 3 weeks off (almost – he’s a workaholic and cracked and went in for the last two days!) We’ve had days out to Drusilla’s and the Lavender Line. It’s been great.
The thought that we have just 6, 7, 8 holidays with all the kids left makes me think we should be having major adventures every summer, though. I’ve not got something particular in mind, just a feeling that we need to make the most of it!
