{Summer Bucket List} Nothing Days | #ShepSummer

Friday, 24 July 2015

Not everything has to be done at 100mph. Days do not need to be filled with activities and outings and constant stuff. Sometimes, we just like to do absolutely nothing. The 'glorious nothing days' as the advert says. This morning we woke up to a band of heavy rain moving painfully slowly across the West Country, meaning a miserable, wet and chilly day and a lack of desire to do anything or go anywhere. So we didn't.


We woke up, later than usual, and stayed in pyjamas until lunchtime. In fact two of the kids didn't even bother getting dressed at all. We pulled out all of the blankets & made ourselves comfortable on the sofa, which is where we ate our breakfast (and I enjoyed my coffee) and we watched a string of Disney movies including the brilliant Maleficent.

At lunchtime we put a blanket on the floor and I packed them a little basket of various goodies for them to share, and they enjoyed a carpet picnic whilst watching movies and still wearing their PJs. Then we all piled back on the sofa again & snuggled up. Nowhere to go, nobody coming to visit - just enjoying our own company in our own home.

A slow, lazy, quiet day. Just us. Just doing nothing.

A glorious nothing day. That's something else ticked off of our Summer Bucket List.

  1. Oh I love this! What a wonderful post and gorgeous photos too. It's been such a miserable day hasn't it. I've just spent an hour in traffic (forgot the party bags for POD's un-birthday party tomorrow!) and didn't get anywhere. Here's too a much brighter weekend! Thank you so much for joining in with #bwphotoproject

  3. This sounds wonderful, my two are still at an age where though they love the idea of spending a day watching movies, they get bored and I spend all my time breaking up arguments instead of watching the films they chose!!

  4. PJ days are so wonderful. It is so important that we teach our kids to be and enjoy themselves rather than always achieving. Lovely post. #MMWBH
