Six weeks to go until school starts again - and a whole new set of stresses - so we're about half way through the stupidly long summer break here in Ireland. It all started well, but now I'd nearly sit and watch Jeremy Kyle all day over anything else. At least I'd feel better about my parenting abilities.
Even the July Provision tutors are now being rejected by the children. Yes even Smiley. I think she doesn't want to do school type activities at home, so I spend the whole time trying to make it work, instead of using it to get things done. Meantime the garden still looks hurricane-ravaged and there's a few more broken things around the house that may one day get fixed, but don't hold your breath. Unless they're actually life threatening, they may just stay the way they are. Perhaps if I leave them long enough the children might fix them for me?
I do have some major news: it could mean a new start, and a little more confidence in my parenting abilities, but I've been advised not to write about it on here! Even though I really really want to, and it might help other parents too.
So I have writer's block once again, as there's only thing on my mind.
I do keep writing. It's just that I lose interest. There's 17 unfinished posts from the last month alone.
If I have a good day, I might actually finish one of them....
