Summer Holidays #Prose4T

I had two poems in my head for this week, linking up with Vicky at One was about the new Royal Prince, another was drafted about my poor Hubbie and his A&E experience. Both scrapped.

In the end, I went with this:

Summer Holidays

Free from school, children laughing.

Ice cream eating, enjoying the downtime.

Cuddle time in between the splashing, bouncing, running, frisbee-throwing.

Will it rain or will there be sunshine?

I remember my school holidays before tablets, phones and social media.

It was either stay in with music, or go out on a bike, cycling wherever the mood took, glad to be away from encylopedias.

Far more pressure now, "do this, taken them there", spend the £££ you haven’t got.

My children are happiest in their garden, bouncing and splashing especially when it’s just too hot!
