We're Tired....

I knew this week was going to be a shock to our system with the kids going back to school but boy oh boy it's been hard....

My word of the week has to be....


 The kids went back to school on Tuesday and obviously on Monday night they would not go to sleep when they were supposed to....

When we did all finally get to sleep the police helicopter decided to start flying about.....For about two hours! It woke Stu and I up and then Ellie.....I could have cried! So from 1am until about 3am I was dozing off to sleep when the helicopter flew away then it would come back and wake me up again....Grr! Then I got it into my head I would sleep through my alarm.....So I tossed and turned for the rest of  the night.....

We haven't really caught up on our sleep since then and as the week has progressed I have felt tireder & tireder....

Becky has been waking up tired.....Her and I get up at 7am! We have to it takes her half an hour to do her hair and she leaves for school at 8am.....I've been dragging Ellie out of bed at 7.40am.....They have both been in foul moods on a morning which has included stamping of feet, shouting and bickering.....None of it from me may I add....lol

It's got to the point of writing this last night that I am longing for the weekend and hoping the kids decide to have a lie in....Fingers crossed!!

Hopefully next week we should be back to normal and had a little more sleep....

  1. I've massively struggled to get back into a routine of getting up this week too. Don't think the dark mornings are helping at all x

  2. Oh that's the worst feeling isn't it when you think you're going to sleep through the alarm (well apart from being tired of course) hope you manage to catch up on sleep ready for next week #wotw

  4. Summarises wonderfully why I don't have kids lol, although my cats wake me up from around 5 am so I'm usually the cranky one! I'm sure they will hit a routine again soon, just before the next set of holidays! Stephen :o)

  6. I went back to work last Friday - as annoying as it was on the day I'm so pleased I had that one day to get used to getting up early...even so the weekend can't come quickly enough in our house!!

  7. It is the same here in our house. At night it is hard for my son to settle down at night and its so hard to wake him in the morning. Also the weather. We have to walk to school in strong wind and rain which is .. yes tiring! So I am so glad its Friday now. Hopefully we can both rest and have energy for Monday =) #wotw

  8. Oh dear, I do hope you have a better weekend and catch up on sleep! I can;t imagine a time where I'll have to wake my two up, but I suppose it'll happen one day! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  9. It has definitely been a struggle this week for us as well. I have two teenage daughters' who do the same thing... You would think they have outgrown the kicking and screaming by now but nope it has gotten worse. I hope you catch up on your sleep and aren't so tired after the weekend. I can also relate to worrying about sleeping through the alarm and never fully falling asleep... That is the absolute worst! #WotW

    Wishing you a relaxing weekend after the week you had!

    Much Love,
    Lysa xx

  21. Hope you managed to get some sleep over the weekend. The nursery run was a shock to the system on Tuesday. We did bed to car in 23 minutes! Hope you get some more sleep this week.
