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 fifth blogger to write a post for this series is a blogging buddy of mine – Sherry from Life At Cook’s Cabin .
How do you usually kick the weekend off on a Friday night?
I finish early on a Friday, so I start it off by skipping to J’s school to pick her up, and then we quickly get her home and changed ready for swimming lessons. Following this we either stop for coffee and cake together and chat about the week, or we make homemade pizzas together while we wait for the hubster to finish work.
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’m working on this at the moment, particularly with moving from part time to full time hours. For me, self care is about recognising my need to get out and away from screens and to stop stressing about and worrying things at work which are out of my control. Fresh air is the best medicine for me, and I love nothing more than plugging my music in, and going for a walk to clear my head and help me refocus for the week ahead
Last year we made a conscious decision to spend more time as a family unit, particularly on Sunday afternoons to help J prepare for school. We don’t rush around as much as we used to, and we ensure that we spend time together as a family unit, but also having an early night and much needed rest on a Friday to allow us be the best versions we can be of ourselves.
