To think "Mum I'm Bored" on the first day of the school hols is just tough?

I don't remember (and neither does my mum) either me or mu brothers ever saying we were bored in the school hols, especially not on the first day!!!
I have told my 3 DCs that I am not prepared to spend vast amounts of money on trips to Alton Towers, the cinema. crappy overpriced indoor soft play areas, etc.
Have told them that they will have to just BE bored. They have access to PS3, DSI, Ipod touch, Sky tv, dvds, viseos, books (from the library), a very expensive trampoline in back garden and a park across the road. That should be plenty to keep them happy.
They seem to think I should suddenly turn into Willy Wonka, Dynamo, Ronald MacDonald, and entertain them 24/7.
Since when has parenting become childrens entertainer?
