Yesterday Dd1 told me she was bored at about 10am-ish, she ended up in tears three seperate times from being naughty, I scalded my fingers in spilling the kettle, looks like Dd2 is coming down with something, found an ants nest outside the back door, yep it's the holidays.....

Oh yes... school hols are far longer whne you are the adult! Find something to occupy the 9 year old, I always find that they suddenly think of something to do when you offer to find something for them. Especially if your finds include tidying /hoovering or similar grin " yr od should then settle down a bit and 10 month old can sleep. Then have yourself a coffee and 5 minutes peace!

We'd already been swimming... half an hour after we get home it's forgotten about. I don't think I should provide non-stop entertainment, they need to be bored occasionally to learn to think for themselves.

God it's a slow process though!
