It’s that point in the year where life gets even more crazy than normal. We’re in full on end of term frenzy with 3 weeks of swim galas, a gym competition and drama exams as well as the usual netball, band and other clubs…I am definitely ready for a holiday.
We spend SO much time running around that our ( limited ) time at home on the weekends is quite stressful as we’re doing homework, music practice, dropping kids to various sporting activities and generally trying to keep the house in a reasonable state and cook so the kids are only eating stuff you stick in the oven half the time. After a particularly unhappy weekend a few weeks ago ( me, not the kids – they were off out and about ) I decided we needed to get out as a family more and that staying in catching up on work and washing wasn’t doing me any good at all. So, last weekend we got out early and spent a lovely Sunday morning lakeside. The kids did paddle boarding and kayaking while we went on a long walk with Charlie and took lots of photos.
I know I felt much better for having spent the morning outdoors and I’m sure the kids did too.
How do you spend your weekends?
