My weekend has mainly been spent…

The Weekend The Weekend the Weekend The Weekend The Weekend The Weekend The Weekend The Weekend

  • Spooning with Jesse, talking about the previous night’s dreams and trying to persuade him to stay in bed a little longer.
  • Sipping tea and lounging on the sofa.
  • Feeling sleepy. Half term really took it’s toll. Looking after the children alone and cramming work in while they slept has left me exhausted.
  • Eating fried eggs for breakfast.
  • Wasting time on Rightmove. Although, now our house is finally on the market {eeek!} I think I’m allowed to spend hours browsing property.
  • Looking at homes we could never afford. Part daydream, part torture.
  • Wishing Mr.LA didn’t have a Saturday morning business meeting.
  • Listening to the children as they played downstairs.
  • Enjoying a hot shower before pulling on skinny jeans and a cosy jumper.
  • Cleaning the house ahead of the first viewings this week.
  • Realising we live in a general state of low level squalor.
  • Fantasising about being able to afford a cleaner.
  • De-cluttering. By assessing everything in terms of whether I want to pack it when we eventually move I was able to sort 5 or 6 bags for the charity shop. It felt good to have a little life laundry. Really good.
  • Snacking on jam toast for lunch.
  • Cleaning some more.
  • Relishing the peace and quiet that descended upon the house when Mr. LA took the children out for some fresh air.
  • Reflecting on my efforts and loving the sight of the neat and tidy mantelpiece in our bedroom.
  • Cooking and eating pasta risotto, salad and garlic bread.
  • Bathing the children and wrestling Jesse into his bunk.
  • Lying on our bed with Izzy while we both read.
  • Giving goodnight kisses.
  • Drinking wine, eating crisps and watching Seven Psychopaths.
  • Heading to bed.
  • Reading until my eyes were closing.
  • Waking up alone.
  • Coming downstairs to find Mr. LA dozing on the sofa with the children.
  • Getting cosy under a blanket.
  • Diving into Sense and Sensibility. I recently downloaded the Jane Austen Collection and I am very much looking forward to rereading my favourites. In fact, I sometimes think rereading is the best kind of reading.
  • Packing Izzy off to her Sunday morning drama class.
  • Deciding the day called for a pretty dress, some red lippy and Coco by Chanel.
  • Playing make believe with Jesse.
  • Loving the sound of my son’s laughter.
  • Drinking imaginary tea and eating pretend cake.
  • Doing laundry.
  • Heating up soup for lunch.
  • Enjoying the simplicity of buttered bread.
  • Braving the cold to walk into town.
  • Splurging on Neom candles in John Lewis.
  • Stocking up on cleaning supplies.
  • Wandering home slowly.
  • Wishing I could watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with the children instead of scrubbing the downstairs loo.
  • Taking a moment to appreciate our home. Although we’re ready to move on, I do love this place and feel very lucky to have spent the last 7 years here.
  • Lighting candles, drawing the curtains and feeling cosy.
  • Preparing veggie burgers for supper.
  • Cleaning the bathroom while the children played.
  • Listening to Mr. LA read The Tale of Jeremy Fisher with Jesse.
  • Trying to avoid scrubbing the shower clean.
  • Sending Mr. LA out for cocktail supplies. I couldn’t possibly watch the Oscars without a martini glass in hand.
  • Tapping away at my laptop as Izzy reads snippets of Harry Potter aloud.
