There is one major advantage to school holidays – beyond the whole ‘no school run so I can stay in my pyjamas til midday’ aspect, that is – and it’s breakfast. During school term, I’m so busy getting everyone organised that my breakfast plans can go out the window. I read with amazement blog posts by women who boil or poach eggs for their offspring on school days. How do they do it? Clearly they’re getting up way earlier than we are in the Fibro. But we’re up at 7am. It’s not like we roll out at 8.30am and race out the door. Not really. Though I do have that whole ‘Ten Minutes From Everywhere‘ mentality to deal with. My whole ‘Ten Minutes From Everywhere‘ mentality, I must stress.
I’m lucky to get a piece of toast into myself in the school term.
In the holidays, however, it’s a whole different story. I’ll have cereal. And toast. And fruit. And even yoghurt. A real breakfast.
No wonder I look forward to the school holidays so much.
Are you a breakfast eater? Do you manage it all year round or only once every three months, like I do?
