Memories of My Own School Holidays

This weather really sucks. The rain,wind and more rain is more akin to my memories of the school summer holidays ‘back in the day’. Though back then, we were allowed so many more freedoms than children have today. I suppose that it was just as well as growing up with only three television channels really sucked! I remember that the BBC would rerun rubbish old shows, even the likes of the ancient 1930’s Flash Gordon and movies like ‘Beau Geste’! What was that all about! I remember really hating the summer rain. If you couldn’t go out – there really was not a lot to do. I think today’s options are a lot more stimulating. Well I must finally add that our Kindle 7’s were on overdrive this afternoon. The children are not allowed them before midday and even then, we do monitor the amount of usage. Who invented ‘Crossy Road’? The children love that game. Though I am not sure that I like the addictive nature of ‘candy crush’ as Amritsar has just become very upset that she can not progress through a level. Did I say, this weather really sucks?
