Apparently, there’s no such thing as a break when you’ve got two kids and a poorly parent thus I’ve given up trying to have a weekend these days.
We spent Saturday catching up with E’s reading and kindness collection homework prior to stripping beds, vacuuming, mopping, cleaning, tidying, and getting the house into order before going baking bonkers as we made various loaves of bread and a cake which was then to be iced as a plant/ animal cell as part of J’s science homework.
By the time that we had ticked off the many tasks, it was almost evening and I was off out on ‘Dad duty’ to offer Mum a little time to herself so that she could enjoy a bath in the hopes that she may feel slightly more human. Upon arriving home, Paul and I set about bath and bedtime for the kids before catching up with the soaps and such-like which led to a late one.
Thankfully I was able to able to enjoy a luxurious lay-in this morning following which, J and I iced and labeled his plant cell cake, and E and I then completed her reading homework whilst J got on with some maths revision.
I then went back to my folks for a few hours to offer further assistance before collecting the kids from my in-laws whilst Paul made us all a rather splendid roast dinner. Once tea was done and dusted, the kids and I caught up on the latest episode of You’ve Been Framed prior to a spot of supper, baths, and bedtime.
It’s just neverending – I’d rather appreciate a weekend during which we could actually relax, a weekend where we needn’t worry ourselves with piles of homework, housework, and tedious tasks but that’s never the case as each and every weekend seems to fly by with us all in a spin trying to catch our own tails and quite frankly, I for one am completely and utterly fed up and exhausted!
Thanks for reading. I look forward to catching up with your #TheOrdinaryMoments posts either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
