Through some small miracle I will have approximately 2 hours to myself today without the wife or kids at home during the school holidays! This kind of event only comes around once a year. Mine has come early this year and I am going to enjoy it. The cricket is on, chips in hand and set up on the couch. Not one other sound or commotion going on around me.
The oldest daughter is at a camp, the three other kids are at a party and the wife is at work. Like I said, two hours of serenity. As a parent of four young kids one must take advantage of these times and both appreciate the time alone, but also appreciate the chaos and business of having a family. I will do both, while eating pizza for lunch and watching hours of cricket guilt free while doing nothing else.
