8 weeks of school holidays started last Friday - we’re on day 3 and I’m already stressing. Not helped by the fact the weather is miserable! I’ve spent too much money on craft materials and DVDs, shouted quite a lot and drank wine on a week night! HELP

What are your tips for surviving school holidays?

I hear ya.
It has been hard. I applied for a summer camp and extra provision for help during July, which my hubby forgot to post ..I am not angry anymore…
Summer sucks!!!!
I’d love to change this 8 week holiday especially since our kiddies with extra needs find it very very stressful ( well, mine does)
Two weeks is enough !
If I had advice or a magic wand—I think I’d make a couple of million!
All I do is try my best not to lose my s**t and try to remember that my son finds this ‘break’ way more painful than I do and that it is his dad’s fault we’ve no help over July…again, I am no longer angry !!!!

OMG - I’d actually throttle him! I hope he’s feeling suitably guilty!

Why does it have to be soooo LONG!

He surprised me with a holiday in Spain while organizing respite for my eldest and my youngest is sorted too for his own mini break while our middle guy plus my BF and her son are coming ...so after that I kind of had to let it go…tell ya what though, I’ve learned a lesson ...I’ll never trust him to post a post card ever again
