Just as I thought it was safe to return to a normal routine, there's the disruption. The children are due to go back to school on Tuesday morning. Wednesday is the usual day off and next Thursday there's a strike at the school.
Shame that the stoppage isn't on Tuesday. That would have been helpful as everyone could have stayed away on their long weekends a tiny bit longer. But this is not to be. They're all supposed to be back at their desks and then away again. May has been full of blazingly hot days so far, but it's a washout in other ways.
