And breathe...

This is the first time in a long little while that everything feels a bit more calm, on an even keel.

Since starting my new part time job, I've been feeling a bit like spaghetti - everything going in all directions but not actually getting anywhere (or anything done).

I'm usually getting the kids to school; walking to work (a bit more of a route march so my legs are usually killing me by the end of the week; getting back home and grabbing a sandwich; try to do a little bit of housework so the place isn't a complete tip; picking Bucket jnr up; sorting out tea; tidying up and then hopefully sitting down for a little while before kids bedtime and also before I pass out on the sofa at 9pm.
 you know that this is NOT a picture of me - right? right??

I've had to accept that I can't do ALL the housework, that I usually did casually in a day, in one hour. Something has got to give or at least slacken a little bit before something breaks - probably my back.

But today I'm here, feeling quite calm and having a nice cuppa before tackling the pancakes.

I'm hope to catch up on some of my favourite blogs too. Sam x


  1. Oh, bless you.
    I hope you're settling into your new job and getting used to all the new routines.
    Have a super week.

    1. Thanks, it seems to be going ok and with all the walking I'm discovering new muscles that I didn't even know I could get. Sam x
