At our wits end, today we made a run for the nearest beach, weather be damned! Despite the cold rain, high tide and lots of debris washed up on the sand, nothing stopped my little Tasmanians getting thoroughly soaked and having a blast. There was the odd bit of sea glass to collect, and I found a piece of broken Willow pattern to add to my collection. We took Spoon along too, who barked at the waves and ran along the shore, diving in for the odd swim or to roll in something smelly.
Fresh sea air and exercise, followed by a warm bath and hot chocolate, a winning combination to shoo away any lingering school holiday boredom. Surely any sensible mother would agree.
