The Art of Doing Nothing, then Resting Afterwards

Sunday, is it? The days are rolling by in a haze of laze. The kids didn't leave the house yesterday. They spent it exploring the possibilities of their new games, toys and colouring books. I did make it to the gym and to walk the dog so I am a veritable hive of activity. Nick made it the the corner shop, discovered it was closed, and walked the 200 yards back again. Not exactly the most exciting of weekends.

At the moment the kids are putting together a new trampoline that they were given by someone Nick works with, who owed Nick a favour. Apparently it was a bargain. It's not one of those huge ones, but I'm sure many hours of fun will be had bouncing on it. I'm guessing they need to get some of the pent up energy out of their systems soon too, or everyone will start arguing and being miserable. Bring on the bounce!

I've been forcing myself to do lesson planning and other school related stuff that I'm not at all motivated to do. I know I will feel better when it's done, but just the thought of having to go back leaves a constricted, panicky feeling in my chest. I don't want to go to school! Please don't make me.

I think I'm going to go and finish the 500 piece jigsaw of Santa that is on the living room floor before Mel does his chores (ie the Hoovering...)

  1. I have been rediculously lazy today. My favorite past time is sleeping, so I have slept lots today! Sunday's are a day of rest, right?
