Our weekends have always been quite busy, we have tended to fill them with trips out and mini adventures. However, with Meme starting school in September we have realised we need to try and slow down at the weekends to give us all time to relax and recuperate.
Saturdays are still quite busy with ballet in the morning and a day out somewhere in the afternoon, coming home late with tired, happy and usually grubby children. Our first day of the weekend is usually filled with lots of excitement, fun and fresh air.
We now take Sunday at a slower pace, we have lazy mornings with snuggles and drinks in bed, there is no rush to get dressed and the girls have a good play together whilst I do any little chores that need doing – it is bliss (apart from the chores!). In the afternoon, we go out for more fresh air and a run round – we only stay local, nothing too strenuous. We usually end the walk with tea and cake in a café which I think the girls enjoy the best.
Although I love the summer there is no better feeling than having a winter walk and stopping at a café to get a warm. Our Sunday ends with bathing the girls then eating dinner whilst watching a film.
It is the perfect medicine to help us recover from the previous week and, of course, prepare us for the week ahead. Xx
