Slovenly. This week couldn’t come quick enough for my Little Shires. Or be more opposite to last!
The Little Shires dragged themselves to the finish line of term last week, ending on a high and buzzing with the excitement of school plays and Easter egg making. This week, they have been enjoying relaxing and just taking their time. There have been no time constraints, no timetables to follow, things have been done at their pace.
There have been lots of lazy days this week.
This slovenly approach has rubbed off on me & Dadtired too. It’s hard not to when both Little Shires were still in bed at 9.30am last Sunday

A proper lie-in on a Sunday never happens when you have kids, right?! If I knew how to make it happen again I’d bottle up the formula and share it among every parent I know!
Despite my having to go to work this week, the pace in the house has certainly dropped to slow.
Not having that morning school run really does reduce the pace of the morning.
Wednesday was a first for everyone, as the Little Shires spent the day with H, our new nanny.
Ay 9am when I left for work they all looked so comfortable with each other, which was really reassuring to me.
When I came home they’d made chocolate mould Easter eggs, spent a leisurely afternoon at Goats Bucks Centre and were playing a Board Game whilst the meatballs were cooking ready for dinner. Seriously, I think we’ve found ourselves a modern day Mary Poppins!
We’ve all been winding down this week & I’m so looking forward to time off next week.
All I ask is for one more lie-in…. what are the chances they decide to wake up at 7am this weekend?!
Happy Easter everyone; enjoy your long weekend
