Saturday photos + words // a week in my life 2023

5 min read

It is the weekend! And day 3 of documenting a week in the life. You can read about my Thursday here and what we got up to on Friday here.

To be honest, since becoming a parent, weekends don’t feel quite the same. We don’t go to the pub and we don’t get to lie in. There is just less routine than on a weekday. Which some people possibly appreciate. However, I feel much happier when there is a level of rhythm and structure to the day.

The morning

But I do want weekends to be fun and special for us as a family. One thing we do to that end is that every Saturday morning we make French toast.

7:15 am // breakfast

So, after being woken up by SJ quite a while before 7 am, we dragged ourselves out of bed and I cooked some eggy bread.

Edd wasn’t hungry yet, so he got ready for the day whilst SJ and I ate breakfast.

9 am // housework + playing

After we finished eating, I tidied up around the flat. SJ played with a blanket for ages. I sorted the washing and carried SJ in the washing basket through the flat. Then, Edd sorted the recycling, I hoovered and SJ „helped“. Then we played with her duplo zoo which is one of her favourite toys right now.

10 am // Bible + rest

Edd then took SJ to Baby gymnastics. I made myself a coffee and had a bit of a break. I journaled, prayed, played a song on my guitar and read my Bible study.

Afterwards I started making potato salad for a BBQ we were hosting later in the day.

12 pm // lunch + naptime

After coming home from Baby Gym, SJ had some lunch and then I put her down for her nap while Edd was mowing the lawn in the garden and setting up the BBQ.

Once SJ was asleep I finished some preparations and then laid in bed with my book. I am super tired at the moment so it was nice to have quite a relaxing day.

3 pm // garden, BBQ + friends

After SJs nap we headed outside. SJ climbed over the wall to see her grandparents next door for a bit, I picked some flowers and Edd made a fire.

A bit later our friends arrived. The kids played in the sandpit and we chatted. We ate sausages and salads and it was lovely, despite the weather being a bit unstable. It got a bit chilly after a while, so we headed indoors for some tea, chocolate and playtime.

7:30 pm // wind down

After our friends left Edd tidied and I put SJ to bed. I tried to blog but was too tired so we opted for an early night.

What a lovely day!
