You have to agree that the whining that comes with school hols is tedious to say the least.
Find me a play date
He / she is annoying me
and don't you get sick of our responses
Get off the computer / xbox
Use your imagination
When I was your age.....
Well, yesterday I had a dream come true.
I came home from work and discovered that my kids
had been ejected from the house by Mr G "go play in the bloody park and
let me do some work" ( Mr G is working from home and actually has a pretty
intense job, so he is pretty good to try and do it from home).
Then they arrived back later with treasure and a plan!
They had found an old tyre abandoned by the river, wheeled all the way home
And made a tyre swing all by themselves, complete with using clover hitch knots learnt in Scouts!! Apparently it was a bit uncomfy but with a little designed innovation using the old sheepskin pram liner, voila! Comfy and fun!
So with the dog and rabbit cruising around the backyard and kids making and playing
I looked out on my yard and felt we were living the suburban dream and it didn't include
electronic devices, so rife with imagination, upcycling and co-operation! So nice for a day.
