I haven’t picked my camera up until today and I’ve barely updated any social media the last week.
As much as I enjoy social media – and it’s something I do because I enjoy it. I tend to put to much pressure on myself sometimes taking the fun out of it and making it stressful. And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing recently, so I decided to just take a break for a week and just be. And it’s certainly worked, I feel inspired with photo ideas, blog post ideas and my fingers just want to keep tapping away on my keyboard but I’m going to have to restrain myself a little because I have to be up bright and early tomorrow and if I’m honest I am really tired.
But I will be back tomorrow with a weekly evaluation, and what’s happening this week. I’ll probably end up writing a few more posts that I’ll schedule to be published throughout the week.
Did I get to sleep? Nah not really our little one who generally is a very good sleeper decided he was waking up at who knows what time and thought it was the perfect time for bouncing all over the bed. So guess who’s sleeping right now?. Either way I have woke up with some more energy today and I feel pretty good, there’s a new episode of riverdale today ( I hope, if they’ve skipped this week I might swear a little ) and I’ve got the majority of things that need doing done, so thumbs up to that. And I mean it’s Friday tomorrow so that alone just makes today a good day.
I tried making some sort of baking concoction of what I had at home, coincidentally the only thing I really had was baileys and it’s safe to say it was a failure. It didn’t really taste of baileys, just alcohol so yeah thumbs down to that. I’m sure the bin enjoyed it, maybe? I’m Sure it’s better than poopy nappies at least.
Yeah I’ve lost it, thinking weather a bin ?! Enjoys whatever I put in it. Think it might be time for more coffee.
So this week so far? Not a fan. Lack of sleep bleh.
Pretty much sums it up really. I mean thank you coffee or I would probably have been sleep parenting, I’m sure that’s a thing.
So I’m in bed nice and early tonight, hoping that I will get a decent nights sleep so that we can turn this week around tomorrow and make it a good one.
By the way Jamie is walking independently more and more, and I am so not ready.
And it’s Sunday again and everything goes back to normal tomorrow, Ryan’s back at work and we’re back to our usual routine. I’m planning on making pancakes for lunch just to get a yummy start to the week.
It’s going to be an interesting week, and I’m hoping in a good way. It’s going to be a little busy (as if I’m not always busy, but more busy than usual), but I’m ready for it, let’s hope I feel the same way when Jasper drags me out of bed in the early hours of the morning ?
You know when you’ve carefully planned out what to do with the few hours of alone time after the kids has gone to sleep, and those few hours goes to actually getting the kids of to sleep instead? Yeah, that’s what happened today.
Well it’s Thursday tomorrow and all I have to say about that is YAAAAAAAS new episode of Riverdale. And hopefully I’ll get those couple of hours of alone time tomorrow, so that, maybe I can at least cross one little thing of the to-do list.
And tomorrow everything goes back to normal. Ryan will be back at work and we will get back to our standard routine again.
I think we have all enjoyed our time together this Christmas (minus the stomach bugs) and feel a little sad that it’s all over. But at the same time it feels nice to get back to normality.
I’m considering setting my alarm for around 5.30-6.00 o’clock, it’s just so nice to get up before the kids and have a cup of coffee in peace without it going cold. But then is it worth losing out on the extra sleep? Hmm, decisions decisions..
Two out of three kids are having a little nap, Zacks making carrots out of play-doh and I feel as if I’ve not slept in weeks although I’ve not slept too bad, can’t ever win huh?.
I’m starting to think about what birthday presents to get Zack, it can be a little difficult seems his interests aren’t quite like of other kids his age. There is one thing I keep looking at which Zack absolutely loves to play with when he has been to his speech and language therapy, and Its a wooden boat with little wooden men. I have looked absolutely everywhere online but I cannot seem to find it. If anyone has any idea of where I might find this, please let me know.
Tomorrows the start of a new week again, and I’m really not looking forward to it that much. Ryans had his first week booked of from work in a while and its been so nice having him at home with us.So its back to normality tomorrow again, although I’m going to miss having Ryan here, its going to be nice to get back into a normal routine again. I tend to get more things done when its just me and the kids.
Little hiccup is lying next to me “swimming”, hes doing his very best to move forward but at the moment its mostly just legs and arms in the air waving around, although he does move slightly forward now and again through worming.
For now I’m going to enjoy the last night of the weekend with my other half, but ill be back here again soon.
Happy Jasper on the swings, its about the only thing they want to go on when we go to the park.
Jasper is going through a tough phase right now which to be honest is a tough phase for all of us. He is very emotional, and theres so much emotion going on for such a little boy, with such a strong will. No is a big word right now and throwing himself on the floor screaming when he doesn’t get his own way is another fun thing he does. Although I try to be as understanding as possible it does occasionally get overwhelming even for me, and when that happens I just try to think that if its hard for me then how much harder isn’t it for him?. Although I am very clear about setting limits and that screaming and throwing tantrums isn’t going to help him get his own way I also try to be understanding towards his feelings as much as I can.
The weekend has come to an end again, We have got a few things done though, mostly painting, (okay so Ryans done most of the painting, I painted one table), and tomorrow our new media unit arrives which I’ve been looking forward to for a week now. So the house is slowly coming together and looking a little bit nicer, we re-painted all the doors and skirtings in gray and although we still have a little bit left to do, the bits that are done looks amazing.
I will post some pictures of the end result once its all finished.
For now I feel absolutely shattered, I stayed up late yesterday and its resulted in me feeling like I was up all night downing a bottle of vodka, although all I actually drunk was alcohol free kopparberg and played on the ps4 with Ryan. So in a little while I will be heading to bed with Jamie Theo, whom always lets us know he wants to go to bed around this time anyway so it all works out quite well.
