26 August 2012

This summer has whizzed by really quickly, apart from the weather being terrible I am not sure where the time has gone.  I feel that the days have run though my fingers in the last few months and I have not used my days as wisely as I would have wished.

We are home educating and where I live for the second half of July and all of August the children who are at school are on holiday.  I live in an area which is popular with tourist so during those weeks it can be really busy.  I am not keen on crowds so I have not really planned anything much during those weeks.  As a result I have missed out on some good activities that have been going on in the area.

In the Spring I started to plan my weeks and bring some rhythm into them.  We usually have play dates on three days of the week, but it was the other days that I planned activities for.  Visits out, or stuff to do at home.  I have lost my way with this since the school holidays have started because I did not want to do much, if places were going to be busy.  I am now trying to think about the months ahead and bring the rhythm back as I have realised that I am missing it.  It helps, for me, to ensure that I do not get too busy if I plan three to four weeks ahead.  My lack of planning and thinking ahead has meant that the next few weeks for me are madly busy as I have not looked at the bigger picture.

I am hoping that I my autumn and winter will be better planned and that next summer I will plan activities despite the fact that there are more people around.  I will look for things to do away from the crowds.


  1. I've been looking at the big picture this past week and as a result I've had chest pains and breathlessness!! I'm totally stressed and so need to try and work on the one in foot in front of the other mode!
