Today is back to school day. We've had 10 weeks off and I've just dropped my Ds1 and Ds2 off at school. Now I feel at a bit of a loose end! Flat needs tidying and balcony is a tip but instead I'm mumsnetting and enjoying the peace.
I'm happy they are at school but at the same time I miss them.
Mine went back on the 12th August here. Still seems a little bit hard to get used to even after 3 years that whilst everyone is on hols in the UK - he is back to school in the middle of August.
Didn't have 10 weeks though, thank the lord, just 6.
I managed to get two consecutive weeks off this summer and it was just lovely to spend time together....stretching your holidays over the Swiss school hols isn't easy - and I feel guilty if I can't at least take a little bit of time over every school holiday, but it doesn't really leave you much for yourself!
