The first week of school holidays is almost over and it has been a most relaxing and quiet week. You know how rare a quiet day with kids is – imagine a whole week of quiet days – where the kids sleep in until midday, then hang around in their pyjamas for the rest of the day playing board games, computer games, reading books and doing crafts. I meanwhile have reorganised the house – moved my craft room to the sunniest room of the house, crocheted quite a lot and of course have done a bit of work too.
