Saturday Morning Routine

I know the prompt is 'weekend morning routine' but my routine on a Sunday is going to work, and that's a bit boring. Having said that, I don't think I have an actual routine for Saturdays. I usually wake up around the same time as Dylan - tends to be because he's jumped on me and is shouting HIYA in my face - and take the day from there.

Today, however, Joe has the weekend off! It's a miracle, I tells ye! Joe's a chef, and naturally they get super busy on a weekend. As this is another bank bloomin' holiday, I think Monday will be quite hectic for them all in the restaurant instead. But enough about Joe. What did I do this morning, I hear you cry. Well, it all started with a cup of tea...

Pukka Tea?
The story behind this mug is that Dylan often copies words or phrases that we say. Naturally, as a two year old, he hasn't quite grasped language properly, and instead of saying "cup of tea?" he says "pukka tea?" Of course, this is hilarious and I had to get it personalised onto a mug. That's what you do when you become a parent. Anyways, I pretty much start every day with a brew, and then answer all the household demands. Does Dylan want toast for breakfast? Do I need to wash stuff? Usually, the answers are always a resounding 'yes'.

So, after I became fully functioning, Joe and I needed to decide what we would do with his luxury day off. After what felt like hours of to-ing and fro-ing, we decided on a spot of lunch in town. On the way, Dylan spotted some ducks and wanted to quack at them...

This is Dylan quacking at the ducks. 
Aaaand by the time we started walking again, it was early afternoon. So that was my Saturday morning routine for today. Next Saturday will be completely different, and no doubt as will the one after that. What can I say, we like to live spontaneously!

What did you get up to this morning? Anything exciting?

  1. My partner is a chef too but luckily he's in charge so sometimes rotas himself a Saturday off - although not this one. He has got tomorrow off but am heading off so he'll just be watching the girls! It's hard to have a proper routine when the other half is all over the place isn't it?

    1. Definitely! It makes you appreciate the days together so much more, though :)

  2. Pukka Tea.. LOVE IT! When my oldest was little (he's nearly 23 now) he used to say 'Pongy Time' ....... which took us a few weeks to figure it he meant 'Once Upon a Time' and he wanted a story! I often ask him (now) when he's off to bed if it's Pongy Time :)

    1. That's a wonderful memory, I hope I'm referring to Pukka Tea when Dylan's older! :)

  5. You can't beat a good quack, it's how I like to spend my Saturdays.
    You should start a range of Dylan Says mugs. Epic.
