All three kids have sported snotty noses, so perhaps they are a little run down from the school term anyway. I didn't plan anything too strenuous, just a smattering of activities with a whole lot of down time.
The first week I was husband-less which made it slightly harder than usual. He is usually in charge of putting everyone to bed while I cabbage on the couch. So I even had to do that as well as keep them entertained all day. No matter. He paid me back with chocolate.
Holy Moly did you know that Sydney has a "Lindt Cafe". Hubby bought me back chocolates you cant get here. I-MUST-GET-MORE.
So we get these ones here. The best chocolates ever. BUT then you can get peanut butter filled ones and cookies and cream flavoured ones...and others. So good. Thanks Hubster.

I can't get over how much Mr Crazy Pants 2 year old loves stacking and making towers with these blocks. He has learned the colours and can name some of the shapes. Smart little monkey.
Of course more important part of the fun is busting the tower down again. He's not called the destroyer for nothing.
Hubby had a day off work. With both boys occupied else where, we took the opportunity to spend a couple of hours with our first born. We did something grown up and went for a little bush walk. This track is in our city and yet I had no idea. It was a lovely walk.
I took the older two to the movies twice. We saw Diary of a wimpy kid and Madagascar 3. Both times I smuggled in microwave bagged pop corn. Hehe. A bag each, way cheaper than the movie stuff, not sure if its healthier though.
The rest of the holidays were filled with play date, a craft session with Tracey at the Scrap Heap , overnight stays with Grandma, computer games, lego, free activities at the library.
What do ya know.... I guess we did do quite a lot.
I am looking forward to getting my house back on Monday...even if its only clean and tidy just for a few hours a day.
