School holidays

August has arrived, and with it, the school holidays, stretching out like a never-ending road before me.  There's nothing like the challenge of trying to keep a six year old entertained for five weeks, when you have little money, no transport and the weather is awful.  Started off with the best of intentions this morning by walking to the swimming pool (in the pouring rain), setting off early in the hope that the pool would be quiet (it wasn't), but after about an hour of trying to get my daughter to swim rather than just splash about noisily, I'd had enough, and it was time to trudge back in the rain again.  I was so hacked off that I had to treat myself to a Cadbury's Dairy Milk from the vending machine (why do leisure centres always have such unhealthy food?).  But I figured I'd burnt most of those calories off during my swim anyway.  At least I managed to get my latest journal finished, covered in this fabulous fabric depicting dainty ladies' shoes and handbags, complete with charm feature.
