Summer holidays, it’s hectic one minute getting ready for Christmas, then it’s quiet with nothing much on the next, unless you are someone who is organised and has a lot of things planned. Let’s face it, we do plan to do it, and then , well, the days just run away and there you are – back at work.
For you – we want to give you and excuse to relax and take time out for yourself , to recharge those batteries ready for the rest of the year.
And for those parents at home with the ‘I’m bored’ crowd, we are referring to children and teens, we want to give you something to challenge them. You can turn it into a competition – who does this first, add your own rules or do reading challenge as a family.
