Easter Holidays are lovely. I get to not have to get up so early in the morning and I don’t have to make school lunches. Children just happen around the place randomly.
This time of year also means gardening.
There are weeds everywhere. I would rather stay inside either sleeping or doing laundry or some other haphazard sort of thing but the seeds are calling me, and there are bored children.
‘Here’s a shovel, lads.’
‘But I want to play Transformer Autobots!’
‘Yes, but there are worms underground that need to transform into motorbikes.’
‘How do they do that?’
‘You won’t know until you dig them up.’
Meanwhile the lady children weeded my garden while the young boys made mud pies and havoc. I wandered by later and sowed seeds.
It’s been that sort of day.
