School holidays when I was young were all about playing out, no matter what the weather.
These days though they aren’t as tough so a bit of rain and wind makes them want a cosy day.
They have pulled out the sofa bed, got a supply of snacks – I put the fruit bowl on the table, they added the contents of my last Graze box, and they have their water and squash.
What more could they need? Oh yes hour after hour of Lego Star Wars on the Wii.
It is good to see them having some down time doing something they love and something they are happy to help each other with.
I’m not expecting the peace to last but instead enjoying it whilst it does.
