So here we (very nearly) are again - a break from school!
If your children are anything like mine, they deny EVERY feeling tired (even when they are yawning and rubbing their eyes!)
Both of our children are very obviously flagging, running on empty and desperately in need of a few chill-out days around the house.
I think the holiday has come at just the right point for them!
This term, as well as entertaining at many, many fantastic parties and events, I have been exceptionally busy working on many new and varied magic-related projects.
You'll hear about them on this website throughout 2012, but two of the main projects I am working on currently are:
- Wizard School: 5 days of magic classes in August. Details can be found here
- Authoring a book: This is an educational "How To..." book for parents and people dealing with children. Further details to follow in due course, publication is planned for July 2012. If you'd like to be notified when the book is available to order, just contact meand I'll let you know as soon as you can order your copy!
As I write this, I have 6 more shows until a fabulous 5 day break. Four of the shows are for birthday parties, one is a wedding and one is a village Royal Jubilee Party. It's going to be a busy few days, but I love what I do and I know that all the parties are going to be great fun to entertain at!
With the "busy-ness of business", I am really looking forward to the half-term break with my family as it will give us all a chance to re-charge our batteries.
- I won't miss the school run (do you find it funny how time ALWAYS speeds up between 8am-8:30am Monday to Friday?!)
- I won't miss making packed lunches for the kids (making sandwiches pre-7am just seems wrong!)
So what are we up to over the half-term I hear you ask?
Like many of you, we're going to be catching up with friends and family - and hopefully some sleep!
We're having a Jubilee Celebration Bar-B-Q with family (fortunately for them, I'm not doing the cooking!)
We're planning a trip to London Zoo at some stage next week, which I am sure the children will LOVE.
And we're heading up to Birmingham for a day to visit some fantastic friends (and so that I can provide the entertainment for their son's party!)
It's going to be a busy, fun-packed, relaxing, funny, family-focused, hopefully dry (!!) break, and I can't wait!
Whatever you're up to over the half-term - whether staying at home, visiting friends or family, or maybe even heading off somewhere for a holiday - I hope you have a great time, and come back at the end of the week relaxed, refreshed, rested...and still talking to your children!
