First day of the school holidays here, I have 20 delightful and fun filled 10-hour days where I will be looking after my adorable nephews, "angel boy" age 9 and "demon child" age almost 6.
The younger boy's school report says he is "exceptionally gifted" and has an "inquiring mind"... I am sure anyone who has kids in their extended family or who works in education knows what that means...!
2 hours into the 200 hours of quality time I will be spending with this exceptional young chap, I notice he has one index finger jammed in the nasal aperture of a rather expensive sugar skull ornament... and the other index finger jammed (yes jammed, past the second knuckle, couldnt get it out) up his own nostril!
"I'm a bit stuck, I was wondering if I put my finger far enough up my nose I could feel my skull bones" he says through a mouthful of blood and snot...
Anyone else just thrilled at the prospect of spending so much quality time with their much loved younger family members...?

Really shouldn't laugh, hope he and you are OK 😂
Well it's not much different to the past 4 months here, we're still social distancing and only leaving for essentials, not even socialising with family yet 😂 we did have a lovely walk this morning 😁 yes the youngest two are trying to pick mushrooms 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ my 4 and 2 yo are slightly feral so I feel you 😂

It's week 2 of the hols here, and I am working on the theory that exhaustion is the key to a harmonious home!
Today the teenagers were woken up early (with much complaining) and dragged out for a 'short' walk.
I am sure that deep down they appreciate it :lol:

Inset day here and again tomorrow for me, so both children left at home with their dad who is working from home still, I got home to find they were both out! Exercise and fresh air definitely the key, they had been playing outside for most of the day and cycling, hoping for good weather so it continues.
