Still in your PJ’s at 12 o’clock, listening to the bacon sizzling under the grill, warm ish coffee in hand and eyes glued to my laptop/Iphone, must only mean one thing…its Sunday. It’s suppose to be the day of rest and reflection, but for me it’s more like the a day of cleaning. Plus the house always looks untidy by the end of the day, as I’ve got clean washing hanging everywhere like some sort of Chinese Laundry.
So Sunday for me is for normally fairly relaxed, and once all my cinderella chores are done I do sit down and mentally plan my week ahead, as well as going over the previous week like a little news feed in my head. This week just thinking back is exhausting, Phoebe has been pretty full on and hard work. She’s totally upped her tantrums, her climbing ability, determination (if that was possible) and decided naps are now just an occasional thing. We’ve had my sister and her boyfriend over from Ibiza visiting for a few days, our house was the meeting point so we could enjoy the fun. By the third night we did feel like we had been on “come dine with me”
Phoebe absolutely loved the social side of this week, I also loved it as it meant I got a well needed 5 minutes rest. My sister was great with Phoebe and seeing them together was very special, we sound and look alike so I think that helps.They spent most of time playing and after 3 days Phoebe can now say “Lou Lou” so cute. We also had both sets of Grandparents over which Phoebe was delighted with and thankfully it didn’t disrupt the bed time routine too much. Me and daddy pig had proper adult conversations and for a whole night I didn’t suddenly break into “PAW PATROL, PAW PATROL WHENEVER YOURE IN TROUBLE!!!” we both had a couple of cheeky drinks and even popped a CD on, one night.It’s been an exhausting family fun filled week with a few hiccups along the way…gas cooker going off whilst mid way through cooking lasagne, forgotten changing bag, getting caught in a sand storm pushing a buggy with a super winey toddler, and many more.
Having had such a difficult and challenging week, I have noticed people want to give you lots of advice and I know they are only trying to help, but I somehow find it hard to listen and take it on board. I wanted a quote to somehow reflect this and after hearing the sad news that one of my favourite authors had passed away, Harper Lee I knew using her quote was perfect.
