Easter Holidays

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Okay so I’ve been trying to write this blog since Friday and actually i’d been trying to write a previous attempt since the week before.

Honestly it’s been a mare of a week and i’m so glad last week is over, but interestingly the weekend brought to a head something that has been bugging me for quite some time…



The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.

George Bernard Shaw[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Now when I talk about communication I am talking specifically between partners, like seriously how do adults with kids communicate nowadays so that all their busy schedules work seemlessly?! Surely it is not just my partner and I that seem to fail miserably?!

I have many friends where both partners work shift work, or travel for work regularly and it all just seems to work, is that because they have to communicate because they work shifts/travel?! Or is it because they communicate better?

We both work 9-5, Mon-Fri.  Okay we have 3 boys, who are all very different and do different things, but surely it shouldn’t be that difficult?[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.

Tony Robbins[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]So tell me how do you and your partner communicate, how do you organise your diaries between work, social and kids?  Do you sync your calendars on your iPhones? Or maybe you go back to basics and simply write on a calendar that hangs in the kitchen?!

Ever the creative I quite liked the idea of a full blackboard wall in the hall that we could update easily; but unless vast then I guess it would be limited to how many months you could show in advance.  Maybe there is something i haven’t thought of?

So go on hit me, how do you guys communicate?

    One of us travels a bit, as much as five days a week- so online, synching calendars really are the best option. This also means its updated real time ( usually ) and prevents double booking. My sadness is each year things start anew on our system ; I can’t look back to check a date something happened. While things can be booked in to repeat, Sometimes I just want to quickly check which date three years ago I was somewhere.

      It does sound like a great option. My partner plays a lot of Squash and my middle son is following in his footsteps in Squash and also Basketball, so us all to sync our calendars does seem like the most logical option. Yeah that must be really frustrating with regards to everything starting anew and being unable to look back! This is going to take a little more thought i think… Might need to actually communicate with him and see what he thinks will work well LOL x
