Word Of The Week – Exhausted

This week we have all been well and truly exhausted. Last weekend we spent the weekend in Jersey which involved a lot of travelling. We had an absolutely amazing time but returned home exhausted. Since we got home I’ve been busy catching up with work and preparing for back to school.

I also brought a souvenir home with me from Jersey, a stinking cold and cough ! To be fair it’s been ages since I’ve been poorly so I can’t complain too much. The kids have also caught colds too, this has resulted in them wanting a quiet week with lots of chilling out.

With it being the summer holidays I thought work would slow down but it hasn’t. Trying to juggle everything has been a challenge and I’m definitely going to take some time off soon. I have a spa break to look forward to in September which I’m excited about. A few days off and some rest and relaxation should leave me feeling refreshed  and ready to get going again.

I usually have everything prepared well in advance for back to school, this year I just can’t seem to get myself motivated. We have most of the uniform but we need to go shoe shopping yet, this is the thing I dislike the most so I leave it as late as I can.

We have no plans for the weekend so I think we just potter about the house, watch some movies, read and maybe go to the local park. I’m hoping next week we will all be a little less exhausted with a lot more energy.
