Our Me and Mine this month come from Sardinia in Italy! I've just finished off my post about our trip there so it should be on the blog in a few days.
This month has felt quite hard in many ways, I appreciate that it doesn't look it from the above pictures but I'm finding seven month olds quite tricky. The main thing I guess is sleep, I think it's about this point when it really catches up with you and the lack of it is making me feel pretty weary at times. I remember how much worse the sleep situation was with Wilf and that about 9 months we both felt like we were about to have some sort of breakdown over it so I'm thankful that we're not in that sort of situation but it's still pretty exhausting at times.
A lot of the time it feels like Tom and I are just tag teaming with each child and never really have anytime for each other (or ourselves) especially when you add work to that too. Add to that Mabli crawling and get into pretty much everything and it feels non stop at the moment!
I think it probably comes down to the fact we don't actually have any routine and I do think that it would make a difference it's just having the energy to implement it. I know Wilf didn't really start sleeping any stretches until he was about 18 months and when I think about that it makes me feel like we might have so long to come until we get a proper nights sleep. Hopefully by trying to be consistent it might help us get there a bit quicker.
On a positive note we are really loving the British summer and after finally being able to afford fake grass on our lawn (part of our garden here - fake grass post to come!) we have been enjoying lots of time outside! We're planning a few more home improvements so it's nice to be able to plan those out and look forward to bits and bobs like that. I've become obsessed with reading about bloggers loft conversions!
I'm hoping to make the most of next month even if I'm sleep deprived as it's the last one before school starts so I want to make it the best summer yet.
Here's to August, the last month before my big boy starts school and maybe a bit more sleep?
Don't forgot to visit the other Me and Mine hosts Lucy, Katie, Jenny, Alex and Lucy. I can't wait to see all your posts!
