Travelling without the kids

I had to travel without my kids last week and when you homeschool and there’s no-one to replace you, your kids are really sitting around bored, not doing much, barely learning anything.  I have a nanny who kept them safe, fed and happy but her English isn’t good enough to follow the curriculum and then she can’t take them out without me so beyond the odd paint job they were kind of left to their own devices for the five days of my absence.  So, won’t be doing that again in a hurry.

But behind every cloud… is a hairdressing appointment, coffee with an old friend, an untrammelled jaunt through London’s finer environs, clothes shopping, late night trawl through Youtube and a long hot bath!
