So the children are on school holidays this week (and next - don't get me started on French school holidays!!!) And O is on a day theatre camp in the next town up! It finishes at 4.30pm. The town is a minimum of 30 minutes from work - if all the lights are green and I don't get behind a lorry.

It is 4.15pm. I am still at work. The penny drops - the children are not at school. O's camp finishes in 15 minutes. I rush out. Thankfully the traffic fairies are on my side! I am "only" 15 minutes late!

The worse thing - it was not just O but his friend I was picking up. Thankfully the camp director was very undestanding - she knows me well!

So for tomorrow - note to self - the children are NOT at school!!!!

Whoops! That sort of thing happens to me every time the kids are out of school. I get out of my routine and it all goes to hell. We miss, or nearly miss, M's weekly speech therapy session pretty much every school holiday. (Yes, I'm a slow learner lol.)

I know what you mea about the speech therapy. F goes twice a week and during the hols the times often change - I don't mind being flexible! however I have to write myself big memos about the change in time!!

So note to self - F is there in 90 minutes!!!
