Me & Mine {May 2015}

May has been my favourite month of the year so far. Each month Dave and I work around each other and only have one or two days a month as a family. It’s our routine, we’ve got used to it and the children don’t miss out at all as they always have time with one or the other of us and when we’re both there we make sure we go on a day out, do something exciting and really make the most of those days together.

But May has been a month of annual leave and we have enjoyed over two weeks as a family. It was time that we really needed, time that we loved and time that we appreciated. I live for those days each month as a family, they break up the norm and are a great change from routine so having two weeks worth of those days, of quality time with my favourite people was fantastic. It couldn’t have been better.

But, it was like having two weeks of weekends, full to bursting with activities and adventures. It was exhausting! But we loved every minute. I’m now looking forward to the summer holidays where we won’t have the same amount of time as a family but at least we’ll have LP home from preschool.
