It’s the Easter holiday break here in UK. For our US readers, that basically means that all UK schools are off for about two weeks (and universities are off for one whole month!!?!)
Right smack dab in the middle of busy spring season.
The first year living abroad here, this teeny tiny detail absolutely blindsided me. I had no clue it was coming and found myself scrambling to cobble together childcare and cashing in favors with the grandparents so we could stay business as usual.
This year, my husband and I devised a clever plan to break it up into chunks…We spent a few days off all together basking in the (unusually warm) sunshine in the National Forest last week. Then, he and the kids go off for a few days on an adventure (while I worked) and later, we flip flop as I take the kids to the seaside tomorrow.
No expensive holiday clubs (i.e. daycare camps) that the kids loathe. No FOMO. No problem, right?
You see, it dawned on me this morning as I was leisurely sipping my coffee, not being pulled in eighty billion directions and not having someone ask me to brush the gum out of their hair.
