My word this week has been BOREDOM
We haven’t really done much this week with the kids and have to basically stayed at home due to the bad weather and because the kids didn’t want to go out.
On e days I had activities planned we would get washed out. Like when we were going to watch cloudy with a chance of meatballs on the big screen in the city centre or to the park or even shopping. The heavens would decide to open and our plans would have to change.
Add to that the fact that my hubby has been working nights most of the week. So he has slept (when the kids will allow it or be quite enough for him to sleep) most of the day. Him working nights has also meant me being alone and sleeping alone all night.
I did try and arrange a day out to a museum that is just a bus ride away but when I asked the kids what they wanted to do. They just wanted to stay in and play board games. I was happy to let them because it gave my bank balance a break after doing the school uniform shop on Saturday. Plus it means that when me hubby is off this weekend we can hopefully have some fun as a family.
All this alone time and being stuck in the house has led to the mid summer holiday lull. Where the kids are bored and they have the phrase “I’m bored” on repeat. The thing is I can completely understand why there bored because so am I.
I am hoping this weekend we can have some fun and adventures as a family. But if our plans fall through, get rained out or changed it’s ok because I have more trips planned in the coming weeks and at least now I know I have the uniform shop done.
