Holidays are too infrequent these days. The Big T and I are both feeling overworked, and the boy-child is trying to juggle study for his final school exams with friendships, skating and generally being a teenager. I think it’s fair to say there’s not a lot of ‘chillin’ going on in our household.

So I’m choosing to remember some times when we’ve been less wound up and a lot more chilled.

There was a time when playing guitar was how the boy-child relaxed. Don't hear it so much anymore. Photo: Su Leslie, 2006
