Four things have defined these holidays so far:
1) The Decision to re-shuffle the boy’s bookshelf. As in, move 300 books off the floor into sustainable housing. Three days later the carnage is still visible in the lounge, the hallway, the parent’s bedroom and in the boy’s room. It is so bad that the boy is being sent to his grandmother’s tomorrow so his mother can somehow piece the house together again. On an upside, the boy has enjoyed reading the volumes that had been lost under the bed.
2) The boy’s unceasing attention of Dottus. Dot is looking forward to the end of school holidays. This is a photo of the boy with his one true love. Dot, as you can see, could quite happily misplace the boy as she eagerly looks to the door for freedom. (The bookshelves behind them are dedicated to cookbooks…. Now I think about it, we have a lot of bookshelves. Hmmm….)
3) A Paper Plane Fixation. He is making them out of anything and everything. Perhaps not quite so pleasingly, he has taken to writing messages on them. Today’s disturbing note: “I do not like you not even a little bit”. One can be pleased that he is improving his creative writing skills.
We left the house today and ventured into the Inner City today to hang with friends and partake in hot chocolate and some very yummy Haloumi Wraps. Good company on cold days is completely invaluable! Here’s to busy school holidays!
