In my introductory post to this new guest series I mentioned that ‘Words About The Weekend’ is a chance to be a bit nosey about other bloggers and what they get up to on a Saturday and Sunday.
The questions deliberately focus on principles of mindfulness – self-care, being present, appreciation and gratitude.
The third blogger to write a post for this series is Vicky from The Growing Mum.
How do you usually kick the weekend off on a Friday night?
Friday nights are usually date nights with my husband. It involves a meal (fancy home-cooked or takeaway), a few minutes of in-depth chat that’s different from “how was your day?” then either a game or a movie.
What do you usually do as a family at the weekend? Any regular activities?
What does your partner or another member of the family regularly do for you on the weekend that you are appreciative of?
How do you fit moments of self-care into the weekend?
I usually do the early shift when our toddler wakes up so I try to get the other half doing it either Saturday or Sunday just so I have a couple of hours to myself. When that doesn’t happen, I try to fit it in some relaxation time during toddler’s nap.
At the weekend we only try to attend at most 2 social events and ideally all on one day so we can have the other day free to spend time with each other and recharge for the next week. It sometimes gets tricky when extended family and friends want us over for dinner but we try to adhere to our rule most of the time unless there’s a good reason – like family visiting from afar.
