Hello Monday. We had a really nice weekend, getting out in our brilliant Yorkshire countryside on both days, so I am sorry it’s over, but I’m also really happy to see Monday again. Rose was enthusiastic about it being a pre-school day, Dan’s gone to work but isn’t on long days for the first time in ages so will be home for teatime, and I’ve got two guilt free hours to myself before picking Rose up.
I love the morning routines on pre-school days, and I already can’t remember how we coped without them before she started. We don’t usually have weekends all together, usually if Dan has a weekend day off then I’ll work it, but I decided to have a bit of a break from that after a super busy few months leading up to Christmas, so I think this Monday morning feels all the better after our days off. I love spend time with my child but a couple of hours off is such a huge tonic; I’m already looking forward to picking her up and playing together again. Plus I’ve popped to the supermarket and washed up, so we don’t need to do the jobs which’d cause a grumble and we can just enjoy doing fun stuff.
So roll on 11.38 and my power-walk to the school gates. Not that I like to leave it til the last possible minute to set off or anything.
