My weekend has mainly been spent…

  • Wondering why, after days of sleeping late, Jesse decided to wake me at 6am, the morning after I’d stayed up till midnight and demolished a bottle of red wine single-handedly.
  • Fumbling my way downstairs while half asleep.
  • Dozing on the sofa while Jesse watched The Rescuers.
  • Sipping tea and waiting for Izzy to wake up.
  • Missing my husband.
  • Making breakfast.
  • Taking a swift shower.
  • Wearing coral coloured blush and lipstick, and feeling instantly more cheery as a result.
  • Excitedly letting the children watch CITV’s Old Skool Weekend. They were mesmerised by Supergran.
  • Feeling crestfallen when Izzy described my childhood as ‘the olden days’.
  • Making a huge vat of incredibly disappointing soup.
  • House hunting. Rightmove and Zoopla are my latest obsession.
  • Wandering over to Fiona’s. Hallum and Jesse are at pre-school together and Esme is simply adorable.
  • Eating biscuits and drinking tea.
  • Watching the children play together.
  • Walking home at twilight.
  • Admiring the sky, counting clouds and pointing out the scariest looking shadows.
  • Running away from imaginary dragons.
  • Grabbing a lazy supper from the local Spar shop. Sometimes you just need pasta and a stir-in sauce!
  • Putting two sleepy children to bed.
  • Waiting patiently for Mr.LA to arrive home.
  • Curling up on the sofa in front of Fawlty Towers.
  • Heading to bed.
  • Lying awake.
  • Sleeping in.
  • Having a dull, but productive day.
  • Scaring my husband with my ‘let’s get STUFF done’ attitude.
  • Taking down the Christmas decorations and clearing away the carnage left by the tree.
  • Strolling into town to do some boring shopping. Cleaning materials and new storage. Yawn!
  • Phoning estate agents. We’ve got one coming to value the house on Tuesday. Eeeek!
  • Making proper popcorn with Jesse. Mr. LA heated the oil on the stove and Jesse dropped the kernels in before eagerly listening out for all the popping.
  • Cooking and eating pie, mash and gravy.
  • Hanging up Jesse’s first drawing of a face for all to see.
  • Feeling sleepy.
  • Trying to mentally prepare for the inaugural school run of the year tomorrow.
