That time is nearly upon us again and for some is already here. Cries of “where did that year go?” heard from many passing parents and lots of smiles and fist punches from the school children soon to be given their freedom for six weeks.There has been a lot of talk about school holidays changing and I have no doubt that the summer holidays will eventually be cut short. Six weeks is a long time, I accept that, but I love it. I love the summer holidays. I love the freedom of lazy mornings, not having to drag my children into uniform and battling with their hair. For a few weeks, there will be no more morning grumpiness or shouting over breakfast.
