Another week to go here. I'm in two minds how I feel - as a term time worker it also means back to work for me - but at this stage in the holiday I think I'm looking forward to going back to work for a rest!

HAHA, mine went back on Tuesday. A particularly happy day for me after nine, yes, nine weeks of avarice from her.

Mine don't go back until the 7th smile

I LOVE the holidays - it has gone so fast sad

Mine go back on the 7th too.

I have enjoyed the holidays, but am suffering from a bit of summer holiday fatigue now!

Not looking forward to being out of the house by 8.20am, that is going to be tough.

I'm a bit worried. I can't remember what time we normally set off blush

Don't want mine to go back sad I've really enjoyed having them around. Is there something wrong with me?? hmm

Don't get me wrong, I love having her at home because she makes me laugh, however, she gets nine weeks off and the cost of living is very high in Switzerland. I think that because she is an only, I have to entertain her much more than if she had siblings. Still glad she's back though!

It's been a tough one here - we run a business from home and due to the recession, working full tilt. DD, 8, is particularly demanding and needy of attention and not understanding of work boundaries, and we've just not had the money for playschemes etc and invites from friends have dried up (she doesn't play very well with other kids) ...

it's been a bit of a strain on all of us....

I've got next term "off" to decorate this dump so that we can sell it.

Will be aaaaall aloooone apart from the bloody dogs and Radio 4.

Love holidays.

Dreading it sad

"Will be aaaaall aloooone apart from the bloody dogs and Radio 4."

Wow. that sounds like my idea of BLISS ...

preciouslillywhite Fri 28-Aug-09 12:29:31

...I know it does sound appealing mrshibbins. But if you add painting into the mix it rapidly degenerates into being a bit shit
