School Holidays

// September 24th, 2007 // Life, People

Aside from my feelings about school holidays as a parent, it is interesting how much of a difference they make to the Wellington vibe. At university today, there were kids in the cafe, and in the hallways. And sitting here in my little shoebox of an office, I am frequently hearing kids’ voices echoing up the alleyway next to me.

It’s all kind of nice. There aren’t enough kids around in Western society I reckon – it’s not a very kid-friendly construct.

Still, let’s spare a thought for my co-parent who has had to put the telly on already at home, as it is raining, there are service-people around, and the kids were going crazy!

    Hear, hear for lovely partners who shoulder a lot of the parenting, and Happy Birthday to Archie (and my mum, Maggie)!
