A glitch in the Universe or is it really summer at last?
The muggy summer air has hit London again. I’m an Aussie by heart so love it muggy and hot :)
I’m hoping that this time it’ll last for a few weeks instead of the measly few days here and there that we’ve had so far this year.
Tomorrow is actually my last day in the office and I will not turn my work computer on again until the 3rd of September.
That’s right, I have a 2-month summer break coming up :D
My mom’s flying to Estonia on the 1st of July, the boys are in school and nursery until the 6th of July and we’re off to Estonia on the 22nd.
Between the 6th and the 22nd I’ll have to entertain them somehow and make sure they don’t kill each other.
They have plenty of very friendly brotherly moments, but there are equally many moments of Oliver driving his big brother mad with his clinginess and with his repetitive asking of Why? Why? WHY?
In addition, both boys are very LOUD all of a sudden. Oliver probably because he’s 3 and Oskar probably because he has reoccurring ear infections and his hearing is totally stuffed. I have a feeling he’ll need those grommets after all (when he had is adenoids and tonsils removed a few years ago they decided at the last minute that grommets were not needed).
I’ll get it all checked out in Estonia. Here in London it takes MONTHS to get a specialist appointment. I have one just in case for the 20th of August, I will need it if the docs in Estonia confirm that he does need grommets.
So, the summer break is almost here and I think the boys will enjoy sleeping in and watching a bit of TV every day (during the school days they’re not allowed) and playing outside with their water shooters.
I definitely will enjoy not having to think about packed lunches or what to wear to the office or what time do I need to run from work to make it home by dinner time.
And – I have some real life friends* with whom I am looking forward to catching up between now and when we go to Estonia**!
*Bloggers do have real life friends as well ;)
**I have real life friends also in Estonia so the catching up will continue there.
