The sun has got his hat on

I’m here. Life is good (ish). Usual niggles; body is misbehaving at present, work is hectic as always at this time of year, child is… well, he’s a teenager, what more can I say. I’m looking forward to the summer holidays for once. We’re not going anywhere this year but I’m taking three weeks off, mostly in long chunks, and I’m planning how to keep the teenager occupied in that time.

We’ve done pretty much every museum in London a million* times (*maybe a slight exaggeration), but I fancy a visit to the newly refurbished Imperial War Museum. We’ll also make a day of the Horniman, South London’s finest hidden gem. We did the dangleway at half term, and NEVER AGAIN for me! but we haven’t had much of an explore of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park yet. Will have to resist the temptation of Westfield, I’ve spent a lot of money on clothes already this month (why do teenagers keep growing!). A swim day would be good, perhaps at the Olympic pool. I don’t want to spend a fortune but I’m sure I can stretch to a film and lunch. And of course there will be lots of trains, trams and buses.

This will be punctuated by a few weeks of work whilst the teenager hangs out firstly with my OH then with his Dad for a week, and at the end of August a trip to the parentals and maybe a few days of family camping. 

Sounds like a pretty perfect summer to me 🙂
