Break

Last week we got into a bit of routine and the routine has continued except for one day where the little one and I went to my mums. We live just over 2 miles away from my parents, so it's easy to walk to theirs despite being on the main road the whole time. There's a path which makes the journey a lot more enjoyable. I really liked walking down there, especially the other day when it was crisp and calm - it's really pretty. Noah got out half way there and walked the rest. He's getting to that stage where he doesn't like being still for very long and slowly gets grumpier until he's let out or falls asleep, so I let him walk and I was impressed for such a little lad, that he walked the rest of the way; stayed up playing, ate lunch etc before falling asleep almost instantly on the way back. He's the most adorable thing when he's cosy and snoring.



It was a break from routine as I had started getting cabin fever from being in the house so much, (except the school runs) so it was lovely to have some time away doing something a little different. This week has been fairly busy what with studying, family life and blogging. I feel really content with how things are at the moment, simply through organisation.
I do keep finding myself completely exhausted these days and I'm not sure if it's the weather, work load or something else that is bothering me without registering - I have the issue where I seemly overthink things all the time and that alone is pretty draining so it's probably that with a combination of late nights. Every night this week I've planned an early one, but it ends up being so late before the lights go out.

So aims for this week is earlier nights and to stop worrying about everything!

  1. Those sound like excellent aims for the week! Tiredness builds up over time, doesn't it, and you just need the odd early night and break from it all. Hope you get it x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    1. Yeah I'm not sure what it is all about but being tired definitely doesn't help emotionally! xx

  2. Unfortunately being tired is part & parcel of having a new born, but it is really hard to deal with sometimes and emotions can get a bit wired. Once I cried when someone offered to get me a cup of tea - I was just so tired and this one act of kindess took me over the edge lol!! You do need the odd break and change of routine now & again, I hope it comes to you soon
