Only in half term I...

Can have a bath at 16:04 on a Friday after coming back from a brew at my friends where we talk the same talk Everytime but we love it! 

Can do so much tapestry and knitting

Can pop nextdoor and cuddle the new baby at will

Can bake so much 

Can watch boxsets of quality American TV

Can have the tea ready to eat at 5.30pm

Can get all sorts of tidying done

Can go out for lunch at a pub

Can catch up with family

Can do crosswords and online jigsaws wily nily

Can be still and enjoy the absolute silence

Can eat lunch and enjoy it rather than quickly shovelling it down

Can just recharge

Get ready for the next onslaught on Y6 and the never ending stress of SATs preparation. 


You know that song by The Troggs? Well I've adapted the lyrics. 

Half term, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy,
Half term, I think I love you


Half term, I think I love you. 

Lots of love from 

Rachel *bubble bath* Radiostar xxx

  4. All those things sound perfect. I hope you've enjoyed doing every one of them this week. The next term is quite short isn't it? 4 weeks and 4 days I think if my reckoning is right, so not too long before you'll be doing them all again. xx

    2. Goodness, that's very forward thinking of your school. What a cracking idea. Amy and Thomas finish 24th March. The holidays are too close together sometimes and I prefer a later Easter at least there's a chance the weather will be warmer. I'd definitely vote for a set Easter Holiday .... in April! xx

    3. If the HG could get time off work, we'd be able to rake advantage of the cheaper holidays!!!

  5. Wow you have managed to pack so much into your half term holiday, that bread in your previous post looks delicious, I really must try and make some, there's nothing nicer than the smell of bread baking in the oven. Such a shame the half term is over already but you still have the weekend and Easter will be here before you know it. :) xx

  8. Rachel it sounds like your half term recharge was just what you needed, nothing quite like frivolous indulgence no lists or pressures to get things done.

    2. What I meant to write was
      It's how I'd live my lottery win life! Instead my iPad wrote a lot of gobbledegook!

  9. Ditto all your lovely things to do at half term. I've had afternoon baths too! And watched a bit of TV after lunch, which I NEVER do normally. Sounds like your half term recharged the batteries perfectly. Head down for the run up to Easter now, eh? XX
