Lighthearted post!

We were out all day yesterday at an event! Walked miles, enjoyed the autumn sunshine, got home early evening.

Why do I feel guilty that today we’re mostly going to slob about. We’re out all week after all.

Anyone else feel guilty when they do this?

And the BEST thing is, Ds has no homework, none, on a Sunday! Winner! Grin

YABU. I bloody wish I was doing nothing today Grin

Everyone needs lazy days. Enjoy!

Grin I’m going to lap it up!

Might go for a brief walk to shake off the guilt. Hmm

I think it does you good to have a relaxing day at least once a week. All I've done today is 2 lots of washing, put it on the line., tidied the kitchen, then the GC came so I played Snakes & Ladders with them. They've gone now and I've got the rest of the day to do whatever I like - which is not much at all.

Lynne1, I was slobbing out so much I almost forgot the washing I’d put on earlier. I’ll go and peg out! Thanks for the reminder Grin

Have a lovely day!

I’ll join you in the guilt Grin there is a huge event on in town (Liverpool Giants if anyone is interested) and I really would like to go, but the crowds and the stress of the packed trains and buses has put me off so I’m watching the feed on Twitter from my front room

I feel no guilt! Sunday’s are often 'nothing' days here,. We all do our own nothing thing and ignore each other. Grin

I’m still in bed! I'm going to get up now and go stitch and only talk enough to demand a cup of tea then my headphones will go on and I won’t have to listen to anyone else.

Do not feel guilty at all! I do sometimes feel a bit guilty having a lazy indoor Sunday if it's nice outside but if it's raining there is nothing nicer. I am doing the same as you today, I was out all day yesterday too so today I'm just lounging around at home, planning to do some baking later but that's about it. Have a lovely day. Smile

It’s really important to have days like this. Enjoy! Your brain and body needs time to unwind and rest. Same for DC.

Do feel bad enjoy it!
I'm having a lazy day, lovely dh has taken the three little ones to visit family to give me some peace (to nurse my hangover) so me and the eldest are just relaxing.

6.30am start on Thursday, 3 and half hour drive to get there and walked miles

hard day at the park Friday and left at 4.30am got home 9.30pm
in 2 days i walked well over 32 thousand steps(defo dont do that at home)

both kids also have complex disabilities so found the excitement draining

Saturday and Sunday we have done nothing in fact the kids haven't left their rooms

tor8181 · 07/10/2018 15:34

*4.30 pm not am

MrsClayneCrawford · 07/10/2018 15:41

Don't feel guilty. We are busy M-F then Saturday is spent running errands & visiting family so by Sunday we more often than not just can not be arsed to do anything.

We did plan a lie in & a walk but DH not feeling well so I whizzed round this morning, got the laundry done & have vegitated in from of the telly all day. Just put tea in the oven & once we've washed up we'll resume our spot on the sofa til bedtime ☺

We all need a chill out day to recharge our batteries for the week ahead. Enjoy 😎

RockYourSocksOff · 07/10/2018 17:48

Enjoy Tor & Mrs C

I did pop out to do a small shop, pegged out and brought in the dried washing but apart from that nothing.

Just thinking what to have to eat. Ds and dp are on the Xbox!

No guilt!

I actually get panicked that my nothing day is ending as I know work will be full on.

Raffles1981 · 07/10/2018 18:28

We've had a change in routine this past week, been out most of the week so had a lazy day today. My DS1 had two naps today and I joined him this afternoon! We all need downtime.

GeezAJammyPeece · 07/10/2018 18:37

I didn't get outta bed till after 2:30pm Blush

Lazed about, leisurely bath, lazed about, washed up some brunch dishes, lazed about some more, made a quick tandoori marinade & chucked some bits of chicken in it then it lazed in the fridge whilst I lazed about yet more. Got up off sofa long enough to bung it in the oven and pop some rice on. Currently lazily contemplating chopping up some salad to go with. Then after we've eaten we're going to the cinema after we've eaten.

Lazy days are required now and again.
