What happens when you blog during the school holidays…

At least they didn’t find the poster paints

I feel I may have sadly maligned my children in yesterday’s blog post, by saying that they are mainly interested in immense amounts of plastic tat, screen time, sweets and expense.

Turns out that while I am otherwise occupied on the computer, they are also interested in building blocks, bingo, Jenga, jigsaw puzzles, Plax, paper aeroplanes, magnetic letters, making dens, dismantling sofas, drawing, coins, catapults, tea sets, playdoh and Moshi Monsters.

Ideally simultaneously and spread all over the one room in the house which is supposedly toy-free.

Think we’re going to need the 10-minute timers for some tidying today.

Anyone else willing to admit that their house has descended into chaos within days of starting the school holidays? Anyone??

Postscript: Turns out that my son is quite proud of his Mount Moshi Tower, so it won’t be going anywhere soon. Sigh.

    We were lucky, depending on how you look at it, that the boys went away with the Gramps two days after breaking up. Now they are back and we go away on Wednesday for a week. If you check out my latest blog post you will see possibly why just now I don't really care if there is TOO much mess. I know what you mean though, really.
