Easter holidays that go on for decades and elasticated waisted trousers...

Shit me- how long have the Easter holidays gone on for? 

This feels about three weeks longer than normal. I have mainly survived it through sporadic heavy drinking, eating and replacing the kids Easter eggs about twenty times and going on the occasional very slow run.

It has been a roller coaster of emotions. From loving waking up with the kids, having no pressure days ahead of us and not having to bollock them into putting their shoes on and brushing their teeth, to driving each other crackers.

I hadn’t realised how many questions my kids ask me. 

About everything. 

They have a question about literally everything.

‘How can you see through windows?’

‘Why is pizza called pizza?’

‘When you’re dead can you still hear things?’

‘Can I sit in the front seat and drive the car?’

‘Can I sit in the front seat and drive the car when I’m eight?’

‘Nine?’

‘Ten?’

And repeat until seventeen.

And repeat but asking about getting married.

And getting their ears pierced.

And owning a mobile phone.

I’ve also had days like this...


When my son just wants to lie on my, watch back-to-back episodes of The Little Princess and tells me I’m his best friend. I literally want to eat him like a corn on the cob.

I do, however, need some structure. Some normality. Some routine. 

I have a lot riding on the kids going back to school tomorrow. And me going back to work.

I’m going to run everyday. 

Make my own pack lunches for work consisting of mainly raw juice and almond milk. 

I’m going to cut out sugar. 

And alcohol. 

And fun. 

I’m going to be the most fucking productive person on the planet.

But first I’m going to polish off the rest of the mini eggs* and find a pair of trousers with an elasticated waist to wear tomorrow.


* My husband just came in and told me I smelt of mini eggs. That’s only got to be a good thing, right?
