February half term is not the best half term. A bit like October half term the weather is dull, cold, wet and really not conducive to days outside as there’s nothing worse than getting cold and damp and then the kids coming down with colds for the rest of the week and wingeing like mad. Your sanity needs to remain intact and thinking of things to do with the kids in half term stretches not only the brain cells but also the bank balance.
For me the dilemma this year has been whether to book any time off. I work full time and the holiday entitlement I do get is precious. Having weighed up the chance of decent weather -v- a fairly decent activities schedule at the school holiday club I opted to keep my holiday and use it later in the year. So for three days next week Addy will head off to holiday camp and get to hang out with her school friends run her legs off and engage her creative side in some pretty cool activities.
