On Sundays I spend the whole day washing school uniforms, finding PE kits and rounding up shoes.
We used to have a roast dinner but now I can’t afford the joint of beef or a large enough chicken. With six mouths to feed it’s cheaper to eat at the local pub where they offer two for the price of one. However, we don’t do that either as we simply prefer to stay at home.
My parents were both only children. On Sundays we would go to Nanny and Grandad Davies for lunch or Grandma and Grandpa F would visit with small gifts. Grandma F is 97 next month and on Sundays she drives along Clevedon seafront on her mobility scooter.
I wonder what my children will remember as their Sunday tradition. In between housework and mealtimes I don’t have time for my studies, but I don’t actually ‘do’ anything with the children either. I need some ideas. What does everyone else do?
