    Summer holidays - dreading it.

    However probably not for the expected reasons... It is when I feel like a rubbish parent. I don't get to spend enough time with the children and the time I do spend is often running around doing mundane things.

    We have our two week holiday, which will be fantastic, but other than that I will be working Mon to Thursday each week. The children will go to a sports club from 8 till 5, which they love (although eldest turns 12 in October and I will have to find somewhere new for her) but I feel sad that I am unable to spend more if the holiday with them. OH is a contractor, so other than our "holiday" he won't be able to take any time off.
