I’m rubbish, I really am…

I don’t know how it’s happened, but my life seems to be completely taken over. I know that having a baby is a full time job, and that it is meant to be all consuming, but I thought I might get some time to myself. And I did – for a while! Then I went back to work, and I managed to carry on for a while. I still managed to read other people’s blogs, comment on them and write my own posts! But now, I’ve just checked my blog and realised that I’ve not written anything since Sept 22nd! Awful! I’m truly rubbish at the blogging malarkey! I want to be better, I really do. And I promise to try.

How do other people manage it though? I wake up at 6ish, just about have time to get myself awake before the little one wakes up. I give him his bottle, and get him changed/dressed. I manage to get myself dressed and try to have something for breakfast while keeping an eye on him (which is increasingly difficult now he’s pulling himself up on things and trying to walk!). I also have to make myself some lunch and sort out the little one’s bottles and lunch to take to the childminders. I usually just about get him to the childminders before 8 (he should be there by 7.30) and get to school just before the bell goes!

By time I get home it’s time for giving the little lad his tea, bath, bottle then to bed. I then tidy the house – which usually looks like the ‘baby baby’ house which Sandy describes as a scene from Home Alone! Cook dinner, eat dinner, mark some work, plan some lessons. Try to have a bath. Then fall in to bed! Where am I supposed to fit in blogging? I try to catch a quick look at other people’s blogs at lunchtime, or during my free periods, but whenever I have a good idea for a comment or a blog post of my own I just run out of time!

I’m only doing this one because I’ve decided that we don’t need dinner today!

  1. It is tough to find the time. I’m really behind with my google reader (as you can tell).
    I couldn’t imagine working outside the home at the moment. Take care of yourself x
