So here's the deal. The school holidays are looming. The kids will drive you crazy. You can't afford to go on holiday. You can't remember the last time you went on holiday. Was it before the kids? It might have been before you were married. There was always something else going on, but now there's nothing else going on and you need to do something. You'd like nothing more than to chill on the beach sipping cocktails but there's no way that is going to happen. Then your eldest came home from school saying Billy and his sister are going camping at the weekend and it's like the time they wanted a rabbit. Maybe it's not such a bad idea but you don't know the first thing about it. Maybe you could go with them?
We were on hols in South Africa and the little girl behind me could have done with some of these tips…….. ! I had to bite my tongue a few times on the long 12 hour flight !!
So, you’ve packed the bags, cancelled the papers and are really looking forward to being away for a couple of weeks free from the usual routine but you’re really anxious about keeping your young kids occupied on that long plane flight.
