A snippet of how I am spending
school holidays every day.
Not outside one of the local pubs but filling in time doing one of many things...
Catching up on reading, coffee, exercising, snoozing, lunch, walking aimlessly up and down the main street, coffee, chatting to anyone who comes into my line of sight, visiting, coffee, watching sport/dance/assembly's, talking to strangers, fundraising, helping on street stalls, waiting for vehicles to be serviced, shopping for the men, etc.
You name it, I've done it.
I seem to spend an extraordinary amount of time waiting for children/parts/appointments in town.
I have to weigh up the option of whether to go home every day. We do not live hours from town but enough to make me wonder if it's worth it, then turning around to travel back into town or staying in town if its only 1-2 hours between activities (it's a big sentence and a big decision). I struggle with it every day.
School holiday's bring semi-relief. The idea of a full day at home is bliss.
How do rural mums fill in time in town whilst waiting for kids/appointments etc? I feel like I waste so much time in town doing nothing very constructive and am always looking for ideas!
