Our weekends seem to be either super busy or super slow. We never seem to have anything in between. Last week was a busy weekend seeing both mine and my husband’s family. This weekend we had no plans what so ever. This doesn’t happen often and if I’m honest I don’t really like weekends where we do nothing. We decided on a quiet day at home Saturday and then out for a half day adventure on Sunday. The weather on Sunday was lovely. Much like it was for last month’s home life project, only warmer.

Unfortunately, Saturday night was a particularly bad night for E our youngest, who is almost 10 months. I’m not sure I got 4 hours sleep. The last thing we felt like doing on Sunday was driving anywhere too far from home. I drew the short straw and had to get up with her at 6am! I mostly just played with her, fed her breakfast and got her dressed for the day. Our eldest didn’t wake until 8am at which point my husband got up too. E wanted an early milk feed and was down for her first nap by 8:30am so I decided to try and get a little more sleep.

Unfortunately, F had other ideas and brought me a “gift”. I’d left my washi tape collection on the coffee table from the night before and this is what she’d done with some of them. Others had been used to bandage a poorly cow!

She then decided to climb into bed with me so I gave up on getting any more sleep today.

By the time we’d got motivated and were ready to think about going out it was 10:30 and since E has lunch around 11:30 we decided to go out straight after lunch. We decided to use the morning to take the cover off the play house for the spring/summer. Excuse the grass, it needs cutting but is quite muddy in places still. F got all her toys out (she’d not seen them since October). E sat in the play tent and was fascinated by grass for a few minutes before attempting to crawl off (the grass was too damp to allow her).

As I was making lunch, F kept picking me daisies and bringing them to the kitchen door.

After lunch, we cleaned up and got ready to go out. I took E upstairs for her milk feed before we went out and as usual, she fell asleep. In the meantime, F had fallen asleep on the sofa! Since E usually only naps for 30 minutes, I left her on our bed where she’d fallen asleep and continued to start my new bullet journal.

Both girls were obviously tired and so it was gone 3 by the time they woke. It was too late to go where we’d originally planned. As a consequence of being so tired and also not leaving the house/garden since Friday morning, I was fairly grumpy. I knew though, that as much as I didn’t want to just go to a local park, I would feel better for getting out. I’m so glad we did make the effort. We were only there an hour but the weather was lovely and as I predicted I felt more positive for making the effort.

Then it was home for dinner, bath and bed.

  1. I too get grumpy if I feel too housebound. Thankfully most of our weekends are spent out the house as they are the only proper time we get with our little man. I love the mural you’ve captured.

    1. I’m glad I’m not alone! Sunshine helps too. I love the mural too although it’s a shame it has graffiti on it.

  2. I am starting to get a little grumpier if I don’t get out, especially now the weather is nice. I have always liked being at home.
    What an amazing looking park though xxx

  3. I totally understand this, we often think a slow day at home will be good but by the end we are a bit grumpy, just getting out , even if its just to the park does everyone the world of good. x
