The Boys Are Back In Town

IMG_0264I know it’s been officially Summer for a little while now but Summer for me really starts when the kids break up from school. I have a long 7 weeks ahead of me to fill with activities so any suggestions are more than welcome but I think I’ll put together a post of my personal favourites soon for those of you in the same boat. We moved house right at the end of last Summer and I think this year we’ll really make the most of out nearby lake, excellent dog walking territory but also great for tiring out the smallest one on his bike!

IMG_0711IMG_0274IMG_0246Another thing Summer signals for me is my most productive season, I think it’s the long stretches of daylight, I just tend to be my most motivated to get on and do stuff in the Summer. It’s mad really because it’s probably the period when I have the least time but I seem to manage it better around now. This being the first weekend of the holidays I decided to start as I meant to go on and began my work schedule for the next 6 weeks. I am hoping to get out 5 videos and 7 blog posts a week between now and September, I used to do this on the regular but took some time away to enjoy Milo’s last year at home with me. I’m keeping everything crossed that if I work hard at the weekend we can enjoy our Summer and come September when he starts ‘proper’ school I wont know what to do with all my extra time.. that’s the PLAN anyway. I’m really looking forward to being able to organise my work days a little better but I’m so going to miss our mornings together before nursery. We went to watch a little video of his class and what they’ve been up to this past year and it was a bit emotional.. really don’t blame his teacher for having a little cry.. I could have.

IMG_0261I don’t actually read/watch very many other mums blogs/videos who have school-age kids so often find it tricky to find people I can 100% relate to.. if you can recommend any I’d love to hear about them.The only one that comes to mind is Brummy Mummy Of 2 who if you haven’t watched already you absolutely MUST.. she’s HILARIOUS!

People are having kids older and older these days (or of course not at all) and I often feel totally out of the loop with people my own age let alone all my 20 something blogger peers but I wouldn’t swap what I have for all the freedom in the world.. well, except at 5am when I’d REALLY love the freedom of uninterrupted sleep!
