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.
Ahh, weekend, I feel as if I can finally just breath again, for tonight anyway because tomorrow I have to deal with that never ending to-do list again.
Weeks not been to bad though once I started feeling somewhat human again and felt like I’d caught up on a little bit of sleep it’s been alright. And the weather! Sunshine and 13 degrees, me and the kids have walked down to the park a couple of times and just soaked that vitamin d up. And Jamie’s been on the swing for the first time, loved it until I took him out and put him back in the pushchair = not a happy baby.
Worst about this week is my stress levels though, the more I get done on my to-do list (yes I know I’m constantly going on about this damn list but it’s my life) the more I seem to need to add. So this weekend I’m just going to go all in and get it all done. And then hopefully I can enjoy a less stressful week next week.
Speaking of stressful, the stupid damn cooker broke. So now I have to buy a new one, so maybe I had been thinking about buying a new one anyway because well I hate gas cookers and want an electric one. But that doesn’t mean it’s ok for this one to just die on me before I’m ready no, nope, nah-ah.
Anyone else feeling like as soon as your to-do list starts getting smaller it magically gets twice as big again? Kind of like the washing basket, you’ve done five loads of washing but the washing pile never really gets smaller.
Not really much going on here, we’re still recovering from the weekend and trying to get our sleeping pattern back to normal. Kinda hoping the kids will sleep past 5.00 am tomorrow, it would be nice to look and feel a little bit less like a zombie tomorrow.
Going to snuggle up to my little baby now and hopefully have a good nights sleep.
His cute little dimple bum ?
And here you get to see a little peak of our newly painted kitchen walls, isn’t the colour lovely? I love it more everyday.
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..
I’m already in bed, really just need to get a good nights sleep. The kids had fun today though, who knew lipstick was such a pain to get of? Phew.
The last few days have been my first days dealing with all the kids at bedtime and I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t been a little worried about it. But it ended up being fine thanks to a very patient little baby.
Right now I’m sitting next to hiccup in his baby gym, he’s having some tummy time whilst Jaspers napping and Zacks watching his tablet and eating biccies.
It’s a little bit cooler then what is has been just recently today so I’m going to try and get a few things done and do my workouts again, I’ve not done it the last four days so it’s about time I get started again.
