Day 281: Bear With Me

There is something about the weekend. I can’t quite put my finger on it.

A weekend is usually full of such promise.

I remember looking forward to a day when I didn’t have to work on a Saturday (until I had children I had worked pretty much every Saturday since I was 12).
Now I wonder what I’m meant to do. We tend to go shopping for food on a Saturday morning, and for some reason that is about it. Housework seems to then be the next thing, but that is a solo job. Apart from that sitting in front of the television seems to be a prime objective for the rest of the household here at BeeBee Towers.

Then Sunday arrives. A day that would be nice if we could sleep in, for this the Brothers Thing have other ideas. Sunday also seems to be the day that my week of insomnia-like behaviour starts.

I have recently tried to stay up later in the vague hope that it will help me fall asleep quicker, and therefore get more actual sleep. Alas, this hasn’t always been the case. Instead I get up earlier on a Sunday than I do during the week. This also means that the peace I crave is shattered almost immediately.

There appears to be an unwritten rule, as soon as Mummy goes downstairs we must go downstairs and continue to make lots of noise. I know I said something similar last week. But hey this is my life and I’m running behind on my writing, reading and knitting!

So today is a day I’d happily have spent cuddled up, with a blanket, book and hot water bottle. Instead I spent it with The Outlaws, and feeling defeated. This can’t last forever. Can it?

Today’s Activity: Watching CSI: Miami with a cuppa.
