It's "adventure season" again, with it's own set of challenges and rewards. What is it? Well it's The Boy's school holiday and his mum has taken time off work so we can cram some adventures in - zoos, theme parks, days out, fun stuff - but also very, very tiring stuff. Already my CFS/ME has taken quite a hit, and we're not done yet.
There is the obvious reward for a parent seeing their children have a great time (and even the not-so-great times, like when The Boy got off the rollercoaster. "Too fast, too high, too scary"), but it also presents me with things I don't see every day - like Eagles, Pandas, trains in fancy dress and people.
