Day One of the Easter holiday


I've survived the first day of the Easter holidays!  I stupidly booked the day off work, forgetting that I had all three boys at home and was unable to go out due to having my bathroom tiled.  I've got to admit I wasn't looking forward to it, especially as I haven’t been feeling very well lately, but it actually wasn't too bad.  I did get nagged a lot, and had to break up a few fights, plus the boys seem to want to constantly eat!  If they keep going at this rate I’m going to have to get one of those huge American fridge freezers to be able to house all the food they’ll need for the fortnight.

I have realised that I need to have a bit of a plan for the rest of the holidays if we’re all going to get through it in one piece.

Today, we did some arts and crafts and the boys enjoyed making cards and gluing shapes onto them.
We also had some left over bread so we decided to break it all up and put it out for the birds as they must be struggling in this cold weather.

They played a few car games, and then I did allow the older two an hour on the Wii while I did my ironing and watched Thomas the Tank Engine ‘Misty Island Rescue’ with the little one.  I quite enjoyed it, and it was very funny watching him sing and dance along to the music.

Their behaviour only really deteriorated close to bedtime, as it usually does, but thankfully their father came home and took over the bedtime routine.

I am working a couple of days over the holidays but I've still got a fair few to fill.  We’re off to LegoLand on Saturday, and will have an Easter egg hunt on Sunday, but I need ideas for the rest of the time.  Maybe a trip to the local adventure farm, and the park is an easy (and free) option.  I could probably do with a list of rainy day activities, as the forecast isn't looking too good for the week ahead. 

Have you got any plans for the Easter break?
