Weekends are the best part of the week. I lie in, I watch tv, I catch up with friends, we go shopping for stuff and we relax ready for the week ahead.
This was me 6 years ago. These days my lie in is minimal but it does exist and it’s length depends on how well my children are getting along downstairs.
I don’t watch anything I want on tv – just annoying kids films and tv shows generally where they teach my Kids to use the phrase ‘what the…’ Since when is that ok? We all know what the word at the end of the sentence is!!
I do not see friends, they have blurred in to happy memories which I simply do not have time to recall in mind or flesh!
We only shop for food now and our relaxing usually consists of both of us falling asleep on the sofa shortly after bedtime!!
But today, as I look at my girl, choosing to watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (because she knows mama loves it) and my son who is happily helping Daddy with the dishwasher, I realise I wouldn’t swap it.
We are happy. Dysfunctional, fiery, silly, untidy, emotional and over eaters. But we are happy. And our kids are loved. And that’s got to be one of the most important things in life surely?!
