A local mum has quietly double checked when the school holidays are ending, conceding to close friends that she’s almost had enough already. Kelli Landers made the admission over breakfast with friends this morning, telling them she’d already looked ahead to see how long Term 3 will run for.

Speaking later to The Watsonia Bugle, Landers said, “I love them, I do. Please print that bit. But seriously, 10 consecutive days with ‘em is a bit much. And I’ve still got six to go! I know it will end soon, but right now the mountain seems insurmountable.”

Landers, an otherwise proud mother of three children under the age of 10, also said, “These winter holidays are always the hardest. When the weather is alright I just chuck them out the back and they can play in the backyard. But last week was terrible, I don’t want them traipsing mud through the house or catching a chill out there.”
