This post is brought to you by Volvo’s XC60
When the siren goes at three this afternoon, school holidays will kick off for our little family. I’m thrilled at the prospect of a few slow days. Mornings have been bonkers here lately. The sun rising later combined with the kids being tired from a long term at school has made us perpetually late.
If our mornings this week were one of the Big Sister’s school readers it would go like this.
I’m almost finished my term as a brand ambassador for Volvo. I’ve been driving their XC60 for three weeks now and I’m going to find it hard to part with next week. The Volvosaurus (a nickname the car earned on instagram) has a bunch of features that leave our car for dead.
The Little Sister can get into her built-in booster seat without me having to lift her, which is doing wonders for my back.
The automatic tailgate means that the Big Sister can get her school bag out of the boot without my help, shaving precious minutes off our school morning, which is doing wonders for my happiness levels.
It is also getting ridiculous fuel economy, which is doing wonders for my credit card.
We’ll make the most of our last week now that school holidays have arrived – after we stay in our PJs til 10am!
