How have your half term holidays gone?
Do any of you still have your own school/college children at home?
I have my son, age nearly 18, at college so been off this last week. His "pay" this week so that he could take his girlfriend out was to paint his bedroom and then it can be wallpapered on the last wall. He has managed nearly two full walls. He has the alcove his computer sits in and another wall to paint yet. He also has boxes to sort through (since moving home) and thought it would be a good idea, gone 12 midnight to bring them down into the living room (which I struggle to keep on top of) and sort out. I am now sat with empty cardboard boxes, bits of Guitar Hero, Yu-Gi-Oh cards, microphones off Playstation singstar, soft toys and books. Lovely. He sat there throwing a baseball ball from one hand to the other, turned the tele onto a music channel from me watching Graham Norton and generally getting my blood pressure to rise.
I have been sat on my own all day, craving some company but not saying anything as he was happily on his computer. We did watch Eastenders together, which he talked through mostly, but was nice to have company. I had just taken my medication though, including Kalms to maybe help my breathlessness so did not want him throwing baseballs around gone midnight. He got told to go upstairs as he got a bit bolshy. Now I am left with his stuff which no doubt I will have to tell him umpteen times tomorrow (today) to move. And his room hasn't got finished too. Gordon Bennett! I love him being at home as I do love the bones of him but I will enjoy my brew come Monday morning.
How has your half term week gone?
Does anyone else feel exasperated from full time children?
