Bonus Days {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.

I love school holidays and weekends with the children. It’s pretty much what I live for. But, one of my favourite things is when I get a bonus day with the children, an unexpected day together. I remember the first time this happened, when the children’s school was closed because of a power cut. It was one of the simplest but loveliest days.

On Friday we had an inset day. One that we only realised was happening a couple of days before and initially it felt like both such a treat and a huge inconvenience. I had so much work to do and expected to have until school pick up on Friday to do it. But then I realised, actually, we could all do with a PJ day at home and I could do my work around the children – and they could probably help with it too.

So that’s pretty much what we did. We stayed in our PJs all day. I cooked a recipe for work and baked another with LP’s help, she dressed up as a witch, Little Man made so many creations and we spent the afternoon in front of the TV. It was bliss.

I spent the day feeling like it was Saturday, a lovely extra Saturday. It was so nice to have low key day with the children and I really appreciate how understanding they are about my job, knowing that I sometimes have to work around them, sort emails whilst I watch a movie with them or take photos whilst they’re playing. It’s just part of life for them now.
