Easter Holidays, unpredictable British weather and getting back into the swing of things

We have just had the Easter Hols. My daughter is only 4yrs old, so only at pre-school but who knew what a difference 3hrs a day makes! She is very good really, but this last week has been getting bored and restless, this seems to be catching and so her brother (20months) is also bored and restless. This would be ok, except for the manic energy that seems to accompany bored and restless. The Easter chocolate probably doesn't help - well, it helps me  (but sadly not my waistline)

In true British style the weather has been unpredictable at best, downright miserable at worst. We have tried to get some days out, which have mostly been ok. The kids have had fun and I have been able to collect some smug good mummy points.

I haven't been able to do much with the horses over the holidays. I seem to spend so much energy trying to keep the kids happy and occupied that I have nothing left for anything other than the bare essentials.

So, it is now Monday morning. School and playgroups don't start back up til tomorrow, which gives me a day of trying to get organised. My post-Easter low carb diet starts today, the washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher and possibly cooker are going to be on almost non-stop and I will somehow have to convince these kids that a bath and hairwash followed by an early night is a good idea. Hmmmm.....
