A Week of Downtime {The Ordinary Moments}

Welcome back to another week of the Ordinary Moments. If you haven’t joined in before this is a weekly linky that launches every Sunday morning and is open until midnight on the following Saturday. It’s a linky that celebrates any ordinary moments in your life – or the not so ordinary some weeks too. Basically – anything goes. I’ll be sharing and commenting on the posts that are linked up during the week and there’s a badge at the bottom of the post if you’d like to add it to yours too.

After being away in Weymouth last week we needed time to relax and just enjoy being at home again. It’s so strange to think that a few months ago we were away most weekends yet now we’re just not used to it so need time to recover afterwards!

After any holiday you have washing to do, things to sort and unpack, post to organise and we turned the last week into an extension of that. We spent a lot of time pottering at home, had the children’s best friends over for a play date in the garden and had a morning at the park.

Most of the time was spent at home and the children loved it. They discovered toys they hadn’t played with in ages, caught up with a few TV shows and read magazines that had arrived whilst we were away.

Being stuck at home for months turned monotonous and we were really looking forward to a week away. But coming home hasn’t felt monotonous any more, it feels like it’s kickstarted the summer for us and we’re now on phase two – with the opportunity to enjoy a few weeks at home.

The Ordinary Moments

If you have an ordinary moment this week, come and link up – I’m looking forward to reading the moments that you share and will comment and share them on Twitter through the course of the week. Thanks so much for taking part.
