Carolyn did her best this morning to locate all the kids pencil cases and their contents, needless to say, after six weeks holiday they were not all in the same place.
The supplier of school books and equipment that we ordered the kids stuff from neglected to tell Carolyn that half of it was out of stock, Carolyn only found out last night when she was trying to allocate all the kids gear for Monday when they go back to school.
We don’t suppose they’ll be the only ones who haven’t got everything on their first day and if they are, it’s tough. The school equipment suppliers should be more organised, after all we did give them 48 hours notice.
In the afternoon we loaded up the Kayak and Surfboard and headed for Castle Rock Beach, we were there all afternoon, not leaving until 5.30pm, the water was warm(ish), the sun was shining and there was a lovely cool breeze, it was glorious and a lovely way to finish the school holiday.
In the evening the kids watched a film called 2 Brothers which they thoroughly enjoyed, Ian watered the garden and after the kids went to bed, watched Lethal Weapon 2. Carolyn carried on getting the kids stuff together in between watching the film.
