    Lol - dude, do you ever get the chance to just switch off, RELAX and CHILL, and do hee-haw [no cooking, no nothing]?

    All that constant 'busyness' would would both do my box in, and totally stress me out!

    And I'd probably need a full 24 hours to recover from it all, never mind having to go to work the next day.... If you don't watch, you're gonna burn yourself out.

    I didn’t mention taking both of them to their tutor, getting my 5 mile walk in as well as going to the supermarket and of course the usual chores.

    I have just got back home, so yes, now going to have an hour relaxing out in the garden with some chillout tunes and a cheeky Shipyard IPA before getting on with the bbq. But not very often! 22:00 to bedtime (usually midnight ish) is my “me time” mostly.

    It’s what you get used to I guess - I struggle to sit and do nothing for long anyway, which is just as well! I don’t really find it stressful apart from I hate being late, so sometimes trying to herd the kids out on time can be a chore but that’s the same for any parent I would guess!

    Kids grow up so quickly, it won’t be long in the grand scheme of things before they’re leaving the nest so I want to make sure they have a childhood they can remember with fondness and the best start in life we can give them. Plus we all have such fun as a family I wouldn’t want it any other way really.

    Getting cloudier now, so intermittent sun and the breeze is picking up but still 26c.

    Oh I totally get that and agree, as we've discussed before (plus respect to you is due), but I honestly don't think I could cope!

    Del and I like doing stuff too, and when jobs need doing we do them [rather than just putting things off - we've been out in the garden for most of the day], and we're pretty organised people, but we also like to have time just to chill, switch off and recharge our batteries, and couldn't be doing with constantly being 'on the go'. Plus both of us need our sleep, and can't function with any less than 8 hours...

    Like you say, I guess it's just what you're used to
