It's been really nice this week as Chris has taken and collected Freddie from school everyday bar one when I had to attend a meeting at school and it's been so nice to be able to chill a little and get on with things at home. Life at home has been rather lovely because we get into this routine of breakfast, getting dressed, doing chores, playing, a nap for Noah whilst I blog/do Uni work, lunch and then it's usually some TV and snuggles before Freddie comes home. On Friday we completely blitz the upstairs by hoovering (+ stairs), changing beds, dusting, cleaning the bath, sink and loo (deep clean compared to the quick daily wipe) and it makes me feel so good knowing it's really sorted for a calm weekend. Then, Saturday and Sunday bring their own type of routine don't they? They're ever so relaxed at the moment and I think it's really benefitting everyone having that time together. They seem to run very smooth which is really lovely!
I'm also into the routine of reading every night for a little bit, I aim for at least a chapter or two depending on how tired I am - every chapter gets you closer to the end - I like the fact I'm getting through a list of ones that I've been wanting to read for a while and discovering books that were tucked away in a cabinet whilst clearing out as well as the ones I bought recently.
I've definitely found a routine for my blogging and Open Uni work which seems to working a harmony right now and I'm so pleased I've found my motivation for them both recently. I feel really inspired to do the best I can right now and I think it's massively down to organising my time correctly which certainly helps when Freddie is at school and the lists I keep writing.
I think we're all feeling at peace this week, bumbling along very happily. Nothing major has really happened (unless you count the fact that Freddie counted to 100 this week unprompted!(That was pretty special)) It's the way I like my family - it certainly seems to be the way we roll. The boys are growing and are finding their feet in their relationship, I think Freddie finds it a shock how grown Noah is as I think he pictures him to be the baby he once was but he's getting independent when he's at school, finding his way around all the toys and speaking out. It's lovely now they're getting to that stage where at the weekends they talk to each other and laugh in the corner. It's certainly giving me some time to muse whilst they play the double act. Routine you're being good to us.
