I haven't any big plans,but it'll be nice just not going into work. I'll be spending it with the boys as they're home from school. Maybe i can get the yard into some semblence of a sanctuary.

Different perspective?

I personally dread the sshool holidays. It always seem to be wall to wall kids every where you go. What makes it worse for an old 'grumpy' is that the Mum's appear oblivious to the way their kids are behaving. Is this the same in your society. The latest fad in the supermarkets is to provide mini trolleys for the kids to push. Unfortunately they seem to use them as battering rams to all who get in their way. I often feel like putting all the kids in one big trolley and....! Maybe somewhere there must be well behaved kids or is that just a dream.
The two boxers would be very acceptable the rest I could well do without.
What happened to the 'children are to be seen but not heard'
And before you all shout at once even I was a kid many years ago but then I am of a different generation with different attitudes.
For me kids and cats are of the same group. They are both around in far greater numbers than is satisfactory but you just have to live with it.
You get to be a 'Grumpy' when you realise that all the things you don't like in life are in greater supply than the things you do like.
