 Summer Nights

It's getting to that time of year when the evenings are long and if not quite sunny,warm.

And I find myself wanting to stay out longer with young Chips.

After tea,having a walk or at least a really casual nice relaxed chill out time outside.

But the time passes so quick from school pick up four pm I'm on the slippery slope to utter exhaustion,show me a sofa or chair and I will immediately fall to sleep,I have been up since six am and have packed a lot of doing into my day.

I bring Chips home and there are the school bags,sandwich boxes to sort out,dinner to do,dishes to wash,washing to fetch in,reading to listen to and that's without actually playing and listening to my child and what can be more important than that!

And I try so hard to fit it all in and I end up shattered.

If I don't get any of it finished it means hell the next morning and a feeling of rushing around and working for hours and it's only eight am!And that's just madness I feel!

But I can feel a certain wind down beginning.I know we still have weeks left at school but I can feel the change coming and I like the evenings at this time of year so much.

I want to catch a bit more of it,try to get out if only a little way,play outside more,do our reading outside,just in general make the most of the outside as I do love being outside and I truly believe any time at all spent outside is good for children and for us grown ups too!

So if the weather holds,that's what I'm going to do ~ wish me luck!
