Cba Thursday…

Last night I went to bed deliberately leaving the blind in my room open. The reason being that when morning came the sun would shine brightly in my room and I’d wake up blue skies and sunshine. At 7am this morning all that I saw was a grey sky and so I hit snooze on my iPhone and rolled back over!

I did manage to have a shower this morning and S and I had a mother and daughter breakfast together. Although that mainly consisted of her wanting everything I was eating!

R was a little monkey this morning and clearly didn’t want to get up. Despite me sleeping right through last night (first time in ages!) it would appear from the state of R’s room that he was up during the night.

I miss the times I could just grab my bits and rush out the door. Now it seems to take us longer to get out of the door than the entire trip itself! R is climbing up onto the kitchen unit because he wants his iPad, S is like a broken record keep on telling me she wants her hat and gloves. Ahhhh please everyone stop and just sit like good children…please!

I was very surprised that both children kept their hats on, usually they’re thrown on the floor the second after I put them on! The doors open and I’m carrying 2 bags, 2 lunch bags, 2 bottles, a preschool book to be returned, a bowl of dry cereal that R wouldn’t touch and guess what R decides he doesn’t want to go in and throws himself to the ground. Kinda no hands free R…luckily his key worker came to help me.

School run done, back home, tidied and washed up, made a few phone calls and replied to some emails. Started the first module of a course I received for Christmas. But now I’m in bed! Fully clothed, under the covers with the attitude of CBA!

In 2 hours time I’ll have to go and pick up the monkeys and that’s my whole 4 hours of freedom today/ this week.

When do you get time to yourself? Do you make time to go out with your friends without your children or is everything you do with the children like me?

I’d love to hear…

    Busy Mumma.
    I do everything with Charlie, I have every other weekend without Abbygail which is bliss! She is hard work. My PND got hold of me and I cant really leave Charlie. I do 99.9% of stuff with him. Its such hard work but I wouldn’t have it any other way. We also now have an allotment so its nice that the kids can let of steam up there 🙂 x

      PND? Sorry I have only just seen your message. I love spending every day with my kids, truth be told I don’t know what I’d do without them…accept work & have a life I guess, haha! They’re both so funny, I guess we all have off days and it’s nice to hear it’s not just me x

        PND post natal depression. The biggest pain in the arse!
        I hate taking my kids to school 🙈 they are mine and belong with me all the time. Watching your babies grow up is really hard but watching them flourish a little more at the end of the school day just shows they are learning lots!
        If I had my way…. they would be home all the time so we could go on lots of holidays (when the bank manager allows it) lol x
