Post Comment Love 19th - 21st August

Welcome back for another summery Post Comment Love, I hope the sun has been shining on you this week. Stephanie and I are looking forward to reading your posts!

This week I've noticed that my brain feels full all the time. I think it's because I'm trying to balance each work day with an outing with the boys. Taking one day off for every day spent working means that I'm worn out, my head feels like I've been on "go-fast" for weeks. By the time the boys are back at school I'll be ready for a holiday!

On the bright side though I've spent a lot of time with my boys on days out and various activities at home. We've made the best use of these holidays we could've without going on holiday and I'm pretty sure the boys are having a blast. 

This week we've celebrated BP turning 12 and even though we didn't have anything special planned it turned out to be a pretty awesome day. A couple of BP's friends spent the entire day with us, we let them play in the pool, they watched a movie, and ate cake. I think we won at that birthday!

We've spent a lot of time at home this week enjoying the sun but we're away at Chester Zoo today. BP suggested it a few months ago and after a little research we decided to go, I'm just hoping the weather is good because we're planning on having a picnic while there.

While I love being able to spend so much time with the boys I'll be happy when we're back to routine. Sleeping in late and making trips to the supermarket daily is getting to me. Yesterday I got up early, enjoyed a few minutes alone before the boys got out of bed and found myself thinking of school mornings. I even told BP to get ready for school! Everyone laughed of course, they found it hilarious. The closer we get to the end of the holidays the more I'm looking forward to being back in my office every day getting plenty of blogging and reading done. 

For now though I'll keep enjoying our days out, make sure the boys have some great memories from the holidays and think about work later.

With some children already back at school and others well on the way how are you coping? Are you looking forward to the children being back or are you secretly sad that the holidays will soon be over?

Newbie Showcase 

There's no newbie this week, but there will be more in the coming weeks.

It'll be the same showcase, just a new name and more open.

    I know what you mean Morgan, I'm worn out with keeping Seb and his friend entertained!It's exhausting for us mums. I'm quite looking forward to the routine of September too this time. xx

    1. The boys are back at school today Tor and I'm breathing a sigh of relief. I think I might take a couple of days just to catch up on some sleep! ;)

  2. I have mixed emotions. It will be nice to have some more time to myself and get to the gym once in a while, but the full days of school will be hard. Our time together is really going to take a hit

    1. I know how you feel Jeremy, I remember when LP started school it was so hard to get used to. I focused on the positives though, that way I didn't feel quite so bad, and he loved it too so that made it easier. :)

  3. September means nothing to us as Peachy isn't of school age yet. The only good thing is that come September, the parks will be less busy during the day. We live in a very family friendly neighbourhood with many schools, parks, and kid friendly activities within walking distance. I do miss being able to have a quiet afternoon out with Peachy without all those little ones running around. They're cute and all but I have to be extra vigilant as they are always coming over to look at Peachy and most don't know how to interact with babies. Peachy doesn't want to be taken for a high speed run in her stroller, she doesn't want to high-five, and she isn't trying to be rude when she shows no interest in your Barbie.

    1. Oh goodness, I can imagine your relief at the parks being less busy! Before you know it Peachy will be strolling into school with her friends and you'll be breathing a sigh of relief at the end of the holidays! Enjoy that time with her hun (I'm sure you do!), hope you get to visit some emptier parks. :)

  4. The school holidays are such hard work. I feel the same too...
    I feel like there are not enough hours in the day.
    I hope you have had a great day at the zoo x

    1. Thanks Kim, we did have a lovely day at the zoo (still haven't got around to writing my review!) but it was a tiring one!

  5. I find the holidays fun but hard when I am off as I have been this year. Despite being very sociable, I also love my quiet time alone and obviously that doesn't happen in holiday time. Trying to do the blogging is a constant rush and it's hard to see anything through with any speed. That said, we have had the best time but everyone will be ready to get back to normal in September I'm sure. Thanks for hosting #PoCoLo

    1. Exactly. It's all a juggling act but seems a lot harder during the summer. I'm glad to be back to a routine now, and will hopefully be catching up on lots of #pocolo reading!
