So, it’s the first day of the holidays
Finally, it’s the holidays, although it doesn’t really feel like the holidays yet as to me holidays should be relaxed with not that much to do, well not that much scheduled anyway, but we’re all pretty busy from now till next Friday, so maybe the holidays will start properly after that, although with my new job now, I’ll still be working a bit.
Anyway, today was Girl Lacer’s primary ballet exam, she seemed to do quite well, well, she didn’t say it was awful at least and I know (thanks to weeks of practicing) that she knows her stuff. We won’t know if she passed or at what level for, I don’t know how long, I hope it’s soon. But anyway, she came out of the exam with the most beautiful hair, I’m glad the dance teachers do that, as I am not a mummy who is good with little girls’ hair (in my defence though Girl Lacer’s hair is incredibly fine and refuses to stay in any position for too long, like it’s owner). You could smell the hairspray before you even walked into the dressing room today.
<- There's Girl Lacer for the last time in her primary uniform, she'll be in Grade 1 from September, which switches to a blue uniform and is minus the little girl skirt, instead going into the whole realm of character skirts and character shoes, completely alien to me!
Girl Lacer has a birthday party and another dance exam to go to tomorrow, Sunday is quite quiet (I really must do some weeding), then both me, Boy Lacer and Girl Lacer have our own things to do next week. After that week Mr. Lacer is on holiday for a week, I’m not sure if we’ll be doing anything specific though. Then after that, with four weeks left of the holiday, we’re going to try and tick off some things me and the kids have wanted to do; see Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guards and to go and paddle in the V&A again are definites, the V&A museum of childhood and the London Eye are good possibilities and we’re almost certainly will be going to Kew and oh lots of picnics have definitely been requested as well (as well as McDonalds) and lots of swimming (Boy Lacer won’t like that bit) and throwing themselves round the kids’ media zone at the gym whilst I try not to get grey hairs. I would also like to fit in the zoo because we haven’t been for years and maybe the cinema or even a trip to Brighton on the train. Much as I don’t particularly like the relentless march of time, it is nice to start to think about things to do in London that we haven’t done before because the kids were too small, I know we won’t be able to do everything though.
