n 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 sixth blogger to write a post for this series is the lovely Jenny from Rabbit Ideas.
How do you usually kick the weekend off on a Friday night?
Friday evening is about relaxing in our house, so some (dinosaur-related) telly time with the kids, bath, books and bed for the kids. Sometimes my husband and I will eat later on a Friday night, once the kids are in bed, to catch up on our weeks, too.
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?
Simple things like taking time to read, go for a walk or coffee with a friend or have a long bath are easy ways I try to factor some ‘me-time’ into the weekend. I am in a book club and love having that accountability and social aspect to reading for pleasure – it has certainly encouraged me to read more than I would do on my own! I also enjoy writing, but tend to do this seriously when I have longer stretches of time, such as holidays.
Eating together is really important for us, it is amazing what conversations crop up at the table! Also being outdoors together in nature is a great way to re-connect with each other and our surroundings.
