There’s a part of me that really looks forward to the school holidays, especially in the summer. My eldest son is still quite little so is usually exhausted by the end of term. During term time I’m constantly rushing them out of the house or shouting because their shoes have mysteriously vanished. During the school holidays we can do pretty much what we like.
Of course, it’s never quite that simple. We all need to make a living and every business needs a bit of attention over the summer months. How do we balance family and work so that the school holidays don’t spell disaster?
