A mass of red from a plant that my big sister bought for us as a house warming present many years ago. Still so colourful, still so stylish. Unfortunately other things in the house are not ageing so well….

We have a school week holiday coming up. A week to give the kids and teachers a break. Let’s not forget parents, grandparents, guardians, support staff as well. We might be homeschooling but it feels like a break is much needed. A week without schooling to allow kids to be kids….

We call the week before a half term the T minus clock. T minus days before the school breaks up. Can we survive the T minus clock without holiday homework. Well….

It’s T minus 3 days to go and it’s not going well so far. So far Son has Art, English and Science holiday homework. Large projects. So much for kids having a break.

I clearly need a break or at the very least a fashion consultant.

“Dad are you seriously going to wear that“.

I thought it was a fine shorts and Jumper (sweater) combo.

“You hair is sticking up and you haven’t shaved today”

I’m calling it the Indiana Jones look.

Maybe for Indiana Jones 6 when he’s about 110.”

Clearly Dr Jones has aged well then….

The jumper is a bit big for you.”

It was a Christmas present and I never got round to changing it.

And I’m probably taller than you now.”

Something strangely emasculating about when your son has edged passed you, when he is barely 13.

How can I put this politelyErm …. You look like a hobbit from Lord of the Rings”

Any cheap fashion experts out there?

Update: School are clearly joining in the fun. The class have been asked to watch a fantasy movie for the next lesson. And why movie are we watching. The Hobbit. The Shame never ends.

  1. I love the honesty between you and your son. I know that shame. My two sons are both taller than I am. The day they achieved that distinction, they enjoyed rubbing it in. Shortie, they called me then πŸ™‚

  2. Take it as a compliment, for Hobbits are adorable!!! A holiday should be a holiday … no homework should be assigned at all!!! I think I’d be inclined to tell the school just where they could put their #$%&@# homework!!! Hugs to you and son!

  3. Hobbits saved Middle Earth. Be proud! Neither of my daughters is taller than me, not sure if Ben will be. His father is 5’9″ and his mama is about the same. I’m 6′ so not many people are taller than me.
    How is it fair to assign work during break?? What a bunch of πŸƒπŸ’©πŸ˜‘
    You should start purposely wearing outrageous outfits, just to see Son’s face. πŸ˜‰πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ

  4. My neighborkid us freaking out about rumors that the 2020/21 school year is going to start in July. I researched last night and although the idea was proposed, schools aren’t sure they’ll even be ready by Sept (Aug would the traditional start). So in addition to advancing grade levels, regardless of pre/post C19 performance, they may also get a long summer vacation!
