My diary : week 3 of the summer holidays
I am knackered.
Being a full time mum for a week trying to make up for working four days a week is nothing short of exhausting. After numerous days out I am now an official approved gold standard picnic maker. I even dream about spreading butter on baps and chopping up fruit. I love spending time with the children but heaven help me I long for the moment that their eyes finally close and my lips melt round a cold glass of Pinot Grigio. Really I finally see why you need such extended holidays, it is well deserved respite. My children alone are relentless, I take my hat off to anyone who can deal with a classroom of 30.
I am now crossing days off with a red marker pen on the calendar until the return to school. I am back at work next week and am actually looking forward to the rest.
I would tell you more about our days but quite frankly the kids have just fallen silent and I will be heading to snoozedom shortly after downing three shots of gin and chasing them down with a Pinot. Had I have taken a fortnight off I may have returned to smoking…..
Sleep tight teacher, enjoy the silence….
I know many other parents currently share my pain, so I would like to spread a little northernmum love and offer a chance to 5 readers to win a little bit of cash to spend on Tesco’s clothing range. Tesco’s have given me five £30 vouchers as a competition prize, all you have to do is leave a comment below and follow them on Twitter @clothingattesco.
Tesco have a fabulous new click and collect service, you order online and then collect in store, so you get access to a much larger range of clothes. I was given a £30 voucher to trial the service and can happily report back that Twin Boy and Girl now have their school uniforms for next term hanging in their wardrobes; all I need now is someone to label them for me….
If you are feeling ultra competitive head over to the Clothing at Tesco Facebook page. They are currently running a nostalgic school quiz for fans on the page, with the chance to win a year’s worth of school uniform. Competition closes on Sunday 21st August.
So, my competition ends on Sunday 21st at midday, it is open to anyone who can use a voucher code. The five winners will be announced Sunday 21st in the evening.
