Word of the Week – Frazzled

I could only think of one word to sum up this week and it’s frazzled, as it’s the last full week before the new school year starts I’ve been trying to cram in as much fun as I can with lots of visits to the park and activities at home. We have had such a busy Summer which has been great but I’m certainly ready for a bit of a rest.

Word of the Week (6)

I tend to go through phases of not being able to get to sleep at night and unfortunately I’m suffering a bout of that now, coupled with the tiredness and fatigue that comes with being diabetic and running around after two little live wires finds me absolutely shattered. Thankfully FrugalMrW is off work for nine whole days after today which takes some of the pressure off me and Daisy will be at school all day so that just leaves me with Jake who should hopefully be a little less boisterous without his partner in crime.

We have a jam packed September with almost every weekend taken up with a celebration or event but there should be enough time in between to get some rest and recharge my batteries, well that’s the plan failing that there is always coffee !

What do you do when you are feeling frazzled ? if you have any tips for me leave me a comment I love hearing from you.

I’m linking up with Jocelyn from The Reading Residence for Word of the Week.

    I know what you mean. I was like that too at the beginning of the week, wanting to cram everything. But I’ve sort of just let go a bit šŸ˜‰ I think we are ready for next week! #wotw

    It’s not good when you are not sleeping well and you have boisterous children to care for, it’s not wonder you are feeling frazzled, I hope you get the chance to recharge your batteries soon.

    Oh dear, tiredness makes everything so much harder, it does sound like you’ve had a difficult week. Hope you manage to sleep better this week and feel less frazzled x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    This was me in week one, I think I’m used to running on very little sleep now. I’m looking forward to the rest with the return to school and it sounds like you are too. Your September sounds like it will be lots of fun too #WotW x

    Ah bless – I have those little spats when I can’t sleep. usually go and sleep in the spare room and chill for a bit when I can. I hope you have had a brill summer and your sleep comes back after a while. I also try meditating too – if your head is clear you often nod off! xx #wotw

    Sleep deprivation is awful isn’t it; I find I have to do something calming first before going to bed otherwise my head is still spinning when I’m lying down.
    I hope with the return to school and back to some kind of routine things get back to normal and the sleepless nights become less
