    We tend to be on the opposite end. Usually it's a good balance between relaxing together and doing interesting things... but I do find we don't socialise as much as I'd like. I think that's a combination of my social anxiety (means I'm hesitant to organise anything with friends), and having no friends with kids (as somehow, that kind of get-together seems easier).

    For you OP, I like the PP's suggestion of setting aside a day and saying no to anything else. Might give you a chance to recharge.

    When we're home- our weekends are packed. We are going from sun up to sun down. So, we plan weekends away. We pack our caravan and ourselves- head off for a weekend and have lazy days hanging around caravan parks, playgrounds and beaches with friends and family. Lots of time to chit chat, laugh and play.

    DH and I have DD who us almost 3. Between us we have both sets of parents who are very close to. Also I have a few siblings and DH has a sibling, all of them have kids and we like to see our nieces and nephews when we can. We also have quite a few very good friends who we count as family who we catch up with frequently and are god parents of their kids also. Also, my job requires a bit of socialisation both in and out of work hours, and DH's business means he spends some time (also out of hours ) meeting potential clients and quoting for future work.

    This. At one stage i was busy every weekend. Then life got boring so i decided to work some weekends and social invites happened again. We go in circles of being busy and quiet. Next 3 weekends for me are busy with heading interstate and some parties. Missing a good party with friends this weekend to go interstate.
