Bit of everything tbh there's no set routine. When stepson is here he generally plays football in the morning, apart from that if its nice we'll go to park, either all together or H will take M and I'll do housework, go shopping or whatever. H usually insists on going to his mum and dads, sometimes I go sometimes he just takes the kids, depending on whether I can be bothered with the weird conversations MIL has. We sometimes go to the kids showings at the cinema but M still doesn't sit through a whole film.
We don't do the Sunday roast thing, H isn't keen on roasts and it seems a waste just for us three.

Bit of everything here as well. H has taken our daughter to the park this morning. I'm about to go and clean the bathroom. When the weather is nicer we'll go out a bit more often. H had an operation earlier this week so is still recovering from that so we're having a slow day today.
Sometimes we'll have family or friends over or go and visit them.
If I didn't think that I'd sink in, I'd be out giving the garden a bit of a tidy up!
Child free - breakfast out, shopping, chilling until kids get back.
With kids - cooked breakfast, park if weather is OK, otherwise just playing in the house. Housework, the crocheting whilst H takes his kids back (he takes J too, so I enjoy a couple of hours of peace and quiet)
Out of the 4 kids, only J will eat a roast, so we don't bother in the afternoon, we have that in the evening when the kids are in bed, and save J some for the next day.

Not a good day to ask me I'm so bored lol. Been stuck inside for 2 days due to horrific weather and a lot of the roads leading out of my town being flooded. I hate being in for so long. I wanted to take the 2 older kids swimming this morning but H isn't here to look after youngest. Some Sundays we have my parents visit or we visit them or we go swimming or we go food shopping or we go for a bit of a walk with scooters/bike. If at home I'll do housework and chill out whilst kids entertain themselves then we might do baking or craft.

A mixture here too. Sometimes we just stay at home and catch up on jobs round the house and have a cooked breakfast and Sunday roast. Sometimes we visit family. Sometimes we go out for the morning, or just afternoon or all day. Today we have come to a soft play, one we haven't been to before later today we will pop to town to maybe do some shopping and call by the airport for the boys to see the aeroplanes then today we are having a meal out later on

Our current trend is not a lot! We were just saying this morning that our sundays have changed from going out, soft play etc to very lazy days at home. I think the big difference is the kids being old enough to happily play together and happy to potter about. I do usually cook a roast or casserole. Really enjoy our lazy sundays. Cheaper too!

I've been working 1 or 2 Sundays a month lately. If not working it's probably walk to a café for cooked breakfast, stroll by the beach, see friends/family, catch up on chores, cinema/DVD, evening drink out. It's a chance to do things there's no time for the other 6 days of the week :)

If we're not out for the day I take at least one of the children to Church in the morning, H gets some chores done then meets us for coffee after the service. We'll usually be found at a park at some point in the day, and we do tend to have a roast in the evening. We'll often go to mil's if she's around, but otherwise we let the children play and try and have some down time

We do a bit of all that. Usually mass in the morning and we arrange to have lunch with family, or we will go to the park, potter around at home. Today we went to the cinema, we haven't really done that before but both kids are old enough and it's quite a cheap cinema so I can see us doing that quite a bit. We often have kids parties to take the kids to so that can sway whAt we do for the day, grrr parties!

Sunday we go to church then my parents for lunch - usually mooch there until early evening then home for an early night.
We used to try & visit all our parents on a sun but it was too stressful & a really rushed day - OH has football on Saturdays so a Sunday is our only real whole day together.
Sometimes we skip church & have a lazy day in house where I will do a lot of batch cooking for week ahead & we'll order in that night. Only do housework on a Sunday if we have had people round night before & it needs tidied again.
I imagine when baby arrives we'll have to start all the visiting again :(
