” Wouldn’t be hitting the headlines if it is that worse!? And, that’s what is now convincing me to fly.”
Summer is gone… It is time to turn on the radiators and fill that hallway hanger with winter jackets and jumpers. Say goodbye to those lovely looking summer sandals and give a warm welcome to those winter and snow boots. Hope my Shoe rack fits in everything.
Amongst all, the most frightening thing is the Half Term! I wish the sun shines and winter takes a break at least during the school holidays and give children a great outdoor environment to enjoy the holidays.
But I am No god! And somehow I have learnt to live with this unpredictable weather and so my children. So, How do we spend half term!? We’d be doing some indoor Arts and Crafts and may have enjoyed the short stay at theme parks. But this time, it is not indoor or local…. It is going to be something exciting…. and brightening… An escape from the cold… We are going to have a great time in Tenerife and might return home Tanned. (Hopefully, seeing the weather in Tenerife)
Until two weeks before, I was more excited than the children about the holidays as I think I am one the who deserves it most. I need a break! I love cooking, but there are days I hate tasting my own preparation is really boring and I hate spending time with cooker and stick to simple recipes.
But Now, though the excitement about the holidays is trying to blossom, I am a little worried! Is it something that we should ignore and go ahead? Am I really worrying about it too much!? Hubby seems to be very casual, though.. He is very Optimistic… And that does not mean I am pessimistic (It’s more of a Mum’s worry)
So, What changed in the past two weeks!? ……. Nothing big (bug, Well, I am not still sure if it is a really big issue or not!)….. It is the talks about the Ebola virus. This trip was planned as a group with three families, two children each. And one of the families (It is actually the Mr in the family) is a great lover of News and suddenly one day there was a message in “Whatsapp”…. Asking “Should we really go ahead with this trip”. Well, That’s the story… You know why I am so confused now!
Sometimes (Actually, Most times), “Ignorance is Bliss”. That “Whatsapp” message disturbed me a lot… I suddenly became a huge fan to google…. And started researching about the Ebola virus. Discussed with my GP and she said “I think it is time for you to go and enjoy the holidays”! …
If you see, there are evidences for its existence from January this year and we had travelled internationally twice after that….. (Without knowing anything about this Virus)….being a mum gives you great potentials. You just make a big issue out of nothing and of course, vice versa as well. Should I go with the former or the latter!?
I thought I would just let it out and see what’s next! Love my blog and it is a great friend to me to express my day to day feelings. Though, it must give me some relief, even if someone dares enough to come and tell me “come on! You are being really silly”!? … That will 905 relieve me from my worries.
Now…. 2 days to go! I am packing what we need for us and the kids and that tells me “Yes, You are going ahead with your holidays”! Emotionally, I am happy… But Logically, I am still quite nervous. They say take much care at Airports. I am going to be (Well, Trying to be) careful at the airports and other places. (But, How possible it is!?) There were even comments from the other family that “We will avoid the water plays”!?………… What the…….!? Why the “……” we should go on holidays to seaside then!? My Optimistic guy says ” Kids are going to have fun and we are joining them! 🙂
Well, I will update you how good was the holidays in two weeks time… Watch out this space.
I wish I fear less about Ebola virus to enjoy the perfect holidays.
How exciting is your Half Term going to be!? What have you planned for your children and “YOU”!?
