Holiday! Celebrate! (or ‘Can writers do holidays?’)

Harry finishes school today. Joe finished preschool yesterday. David doesn’t finish work til the middle of next week, but we’re all very excited anyway. We seem to have been counting down to this holiday for aaaages and for the past week we’ve had a tear-off countdown calendar pinned up in the hall. Much as the boys love school, they’re ready for a break.

And even though I’ve been enjoying writing possibly more than ever before, I’m ready for a break too. But I’ll still be writing. Not only because I’m loving what I’m working on, but also because writers never really stop writing
