It’s the first day back to school today after the school holidays and although I have a sick little one still with me, the house feels eerily quiet. However, I am totally loving the fact that I haven’t heard one “Muuuuuuuum…..” all morning, and when I’ve sat down, I’ve actually managed to stay sitting for longer than 20 seconds.
I’ve been a bit of a tumbleweed on the blog lately as I just find it impossible to try and work when the kids are around. If they’re not fighting like cat and dog over something totally ridiculous like ‘he laughed at me’ or she stole my nerf bullets’, then they’re hungry, or thirsty or need the the trampoline cover on, and then off again or they want the hose-pipe connected, then disconnect…….!!! They desperately want to go to the park or the beach and just as I make myself comfy they want to go home again. And on it goes……..for two weeks!! I find that if I just give in and become a slave to needs I actually quite enjoy the holidays and we’ve had a whole heap of fun together these past two weeks.
The problem is I now have to find my mojo again!! I’ve been wondering around the house all morning starting about a hundred jobs and finishing none. My brain just doesn’t seem to be back in the zone yet. I wonder if the kids feel the same?? Those poor teachers – first day back at school must be exasperating!!!
Maybe I’ll start with a list. A list of where to start! Does anyone else get like this after a holiday?? Tell me I’m not alone.
Maybe you could help me with my lists – what kind of things would you like to see on the blog over the next few weeks. I’d love you to throw some topics my way.
In the meantime I am going to make myself another cup of tea.
I hope you day is going swimmingly
I am the same way, I just can’t seem to sit still and get things done. We were away so I didn’t have time for the kids to get too naggy! I miss the wee munchkins (who am I?) xx
hahaha, so easy to get used to having them around!! Can’t wait to hear all about your trip. Photos looked fab xx
Today is my first kid-free day Robyn. Unfortunately/fortunately our book keeper is away, so I’ll be spending my day on the computer for an entirely different reason! Hope you find your rhythm soon. x
At least you’re able to do it!! I would be hopeless – numbers scare me! x
My brain is so scattered at the moment – trying to do too much but not getting much done at all. You know what I mean? So awesome to meet your gorgeous family tonight hun, and thanks for helping out at the canteen 🙂 xx
