I’ll split my time between you, you and YOU!

I drag myself out of bed as late as possible leaving myself only minutes to get ready for work. I don’t need breakfast I’ll eat whenever I want. I throw my clothes on and jump in the car, off to work. Actually I fancy a bacon sarnie, I’ll just jump out at the sandwich cabin near work. Mmm lovely sarnie, eaten whilst I leisurely stroll into the office and sit down at my desk. Made it just in time. I ponder tonight’s plans whilst looking busy for a few hours. After sharing a few joke emails and texting a couple of pals to see if they fancy the local tonight just for a couple whilst watching the football, I’m back in the car making my way home in my own time. No rush. I jump in the shower and spend a bit of time picking out a decent top ready for the pub. I finish off yesterdays KFC chicken for my tea and get off to the pub. After all, I only need to share my time with me!


I still haven’t taken this shirt off!!!

I’m woken by the 6am alarm, as in 2 whole hours before I actually need to leave the house. I have to find time to squeeze in breakfast for myself and all 3 kids. Without breakfast I might not make dinner time! I sling on some clothes and have to make sure I also have not only 1 out fit for the boy but 2, maybe 3 dependent on the days plan (Plan meant in the loosest way) in case of those unforeseen events. Oh I best give the girls a little ‘encouragement’ to get dressed, “Will you bloody hurry up!”. Once we’re all fed and dressed we can then make our way to the car. We drop off kid No.1 then kid No.2, now we can embark on our day’s adventure. The world is ours for the taking, oh wait, we cant actually go too far. We need to go wash up all the breakfast dishes and get that washing in before it builds up first. Oh but it’s now gone 10 and you’re hungry having had breakfast at 7am. OK, I’ll just take these dried clothes upstairs then make you a snack. “You eat that at your table while I let the dog out”. Too late, dogs done her business in the living room. Right so that’s cleaned up, you’ve had your snack, first load of washing is on and I’ll wash up the breakfast dishes before dinner time. Look at the the time, it’s now already dinner time and we’ve ran out of the smiley faces I promised you could have yesterday. Back in the car and to the shop. “Where have you thrown your socks?!” One’s hanging from the TV and the dogs running around with the other. Great.

So we’re back from the shop and your eating your salad as now you’ve decided you don’t actually want smiley faces after all. Wet clothes out of the washing machine and in the dryer. Ah, were going to be late picking mummy up from work! Back in the car… Once we find your socks again! Mummy, check, girls, check. Right back home. Tea time. One of you wants this and the other wants that argument again, no surprise. “Bags and coats still need going upstairs and your homework needs doing”. “Yeah sure I’ll fix your laptop that’s playing up”. It’s because the internet is playing up again. I’ll get on the phone to them. Currently 3492nd in the queue. “Give me a look at that maths homework while I’m on the phone”. Right internet is fixed, “Shhh!! soaps are on be quiet”. Best check my emails and see if I can get some work done, but it’s getting late now and I can’t think straight and there’s tomorrow to get prepared for. Bedtime. “Can we stay up”, Nope! The wife shouts down “Her headphones won’t connect to her iPad”, kid 2 shouts “My TV isn’t recording again”. Finally, everyone’s asleep…. Including me.

      Haha! That shirt was what I’d call expensive, Β£30 from River Island I think… Every other shirt has come, shrunk in the wash and gone but this one…. It’s lasted the distance so far! πŸ™‚

    So true, I often wonder what I found to do with my time before my little boy came along. Never enough hours in the day now.

    Great blog. Glad to hear it’s not just me the fickle gods of time and fate burp in the face of. No matter how well I plan the day it seems the dog will metaphorically or literally poo in the lounge every time. You are so right about the time you had before kids and after – the sad part is you don’t realise it at the time.

      Honestly, it was easier potty training the kid! All that time wasted before!!! Surely we should be allowed to bank some of it to use at a later date?? Thanks for your comments πŸ™‚
