My god it’s that time again! It’s half term and us mummy’s and daddy’s will have to get our heads on and start thinking  what to do in the way of keeping them little monsters entertained. Half term comes around so fast’ it only seems like yesterday they were on Christmas break. My two seem to become so bored it’s then that we have problems as they always argue. Little man wants Alice to play seems to be a good thing as this used to never happen he would prefer to play alone. But and yes this is a big but! When they do play together it’s all on Giovanni’s terms. This is annoying for Alice as he tells her what she has to say,do and act in the game. It always seems to head towards Alice having to go on a bus or a train which as you can expect after playing this game 1000 times it becomes some what boring. The refusing in wanting to play seems to be what gets to G most causing him to often hit his sister

So unless i find something that’s going to keep them both on a high  i’m in  trouble. So here’s my plan! Butlins! A three or four day holiday at butlins. Me the children and they dad went a few years back and they seemed to really enjoy it even through at the time they were both sick and vomiting everywhere we went. So after speaking to hubby we have decided to check some prices out on the net and arrange a trip some time in the week:)

So if we can get Butlins for a good price then that’s us sorted for a few days of the half term. Februaryis never a great time for money as everybody knows:( Just having had Christmas and Alice’s birthday doesn’t help. There are some fantastic sites that let you know all the top events that are taking place in your area. I have often searched Google for free events for kids taking place in the half term. There seems to be alot of play groups that offering trips to the zoo, coast and other places. Sadly these never seem to be a option for us as G doesn’t like the idea of attending events and groups like those on offer. Alice seems to follow her brother on this on.

If anybody knows of some great places and ways to entertain the children this half term then why not share them with other parents that are a little stuck this half term.

Will let you all know if we go on our trip. And will post some pictures:)

    I have an aspie as well. I hear your struggle. As for the food go to the kiddie plates and get a tray like used in school cafeterias. My kids love these plates. My daughter was that way until I made her do the dishes by herself. They are 8 and 6.
