The Ordinary Moments ’16 #28 | Embracing Slow Sundays

I’m not sure why or how I got so out of the habit of sharing my Ordinary Moments posts as it’s one of my favourite linkys to join in with, but I realised today that I haven’t actually shared one since August!! So after yet another lazy Sunday, I thought I’d share all about why we’ve been really embracing them lately, its safe to say that they have most definitely become a very Ordinary Moment in our household!

Over the last few weeks we’ve been really enjoying this slower pace on a Sunday. Our weeks are usually so full on that by the time the weekend rolls around we are all super tired and in desperate need of some down time. Yet Saturdays tend to still be pretty busy as sometimes Josh works in the morning and often we’ll have a few errands that need running or plans to see friends or family. Sundays however are always kept work free as I think it’s really important to have at least one day a week which is set aside purely for family time. Sundays breakfasts are fast becoming one of my favourite parts of the whole week, we almost always have a hot breakfast on a Sunday, either croissants or scrambled eggs and always with a glass of orange juice and plenty of coffee for Josh!

We tend to stay in our Pj’s much later than is probably socially acceptable and we often watch at least one Disney film before we finally get ready for the day ahead. If the weathers dry we’ll head out for a walk with the dog and if not then we’ll probably just stay home and relax until the evening rolls around and we’ll cook a big old roast or something equally comforting. Tonight we had sausages and mash and it was SO good.

I definitely think that the saying ‘A Sunday Well Spent Brings A Week Of Content’ really is very true. I really love just spending some quality time with my little family at home with no interuptions. Bella thrives on them and I always go to bed on a Sunday evening feeling refreshed and ready for another crazy week ahead. Long may these slow Sundays continue!

These photos are totally unrelated as they are from our lovely weekend with Alice & Amelia a couple of weeks back that I promise to blog about soon but I just love them so much I had to share. A big thank you to Alice for taking them!

    Beautiful pictures! I’m embracing the lazy sunday too, but for me I think that’s what the cold weather does, it makes you want to cosy up and just enjoy being indoors. It’s nice!

    Slow Sundays are the best kind of Sundays! A movie, some much and cuddles with my favourites, although the cuddles turn into climbing and jumping lol xx
