Apologies…(and my timetable)

for the mega cop-out post yesterday.

I’m apologising more to myself than anything else.  You see, once a post is published, I won’t withdraw it although I may choose not to publish it.  I just haven’t had the time nor the inclination to post recently.

This is mostly caused by my enforced SAHM-ness which is now indefinitely extended.  This, added to O’s night feeding habits have me completely worn into the ground on most days.

An example day for me is:

Get up around 7.30ish (although recently, we have been getting up slightly earlier as she’s refusing to stay in bed.)

Breakfast for the pack.

8am – shower and wash hair

8.30 dress two children, feed O.

9-10 – O on blanket playing, Madam being told off repeatedly for poking him.

10.30 – snack time (raisins and juice)

10.35 – feed O, he goes to sleep

10.40 – 11.30 – Mummy and Toddler time.  Mostly being kicked and drawing monsters. (Or blogging while she watches Charlie and Lola on the other screen)

11.45 – O wakes up.

12.00 – go cook soup for lunch.  We always have soup. She won’t eat sarnies at home.
