First day of hol’s

So it’s the first day of the holidays, and school’s out for a couple of weeks. The sun is shining, and little fluffy clouds are wafting lazily across the sky. The seagulls out in the street are playing chicken with the cars as they munch contentedly on their breakfast of roadkill and garbage.

Such images of peace and contentment, but speaking of roadkill and garbage, I wonder what parliament do in their break? Does Hekia retire to a peaceful marae to consider her next step in the deprofessionalisation of education? Does Amy sleep in for a fortnight or fly off somewhere to lose that dreadful beehive pallor?

As for me, I’ve got Lee Childs and James Patterson beckoning me with the books I bought last year, but haven’t had time to peruse. Bliss!
