What I did on my holidays, aka, why I am now feeling bit wiped out :-)

I had a lovely month off work! It has been busy though :-) I think going back to work will be gentle and quiet in comparison!

First day at Kindergarten for Patrick
First day at school for Markus
Birthday Party for Patrick
Birthday Party for Markus

The boys got haircuts, I got some beauty treatments
I cleaned the flat many times and did more washing loads than I care to remember
I wrote 8 blogs posts (at least)

Got the duvets, pillows and bed covers cleaned
Got a cleaner in, so we came home to a lovely clean flat

FInally set up my new laptop and migrated over nearly 20 years of data
Did a lot of driving in rental cars
Made a lot of phone calls about many different admin-y t hings

Lost my phone, but found it before cancelling!
