Blog every day in May: Day in the life

3 May

Blog Every Day in May badge

I’m on maternity leave at the moment so my day is very different to when I am working. I’m treasuring these days as in September, I go back to work, Evie starts full time school and we’ll never have a time like this again.

My kids lie in thank goodness (although my son does not sleep during the night at the moment due to teething I think). I’m so grateful that we don’t have 5.30am starts like some families do.

We get up usually between 7 and 8. I’m always asleep when Evie comes to find me and our movement usually wakes Isaac too. We potter around and have a lazy start.

On a morning we do different things depending on the day. We go to Ikea for breakfast, to the library for story and craft time or just stay in. On a Friday we go to the local childrens’ centre so Evie can play and Isaac likes to see new faces and toys and activities too.

We then rush home for an early lunch and to get Evie in her school uniform to get her to pre-school for 12.15. We live 5 miles from the school and we are always in a rush to get there, mainly because Evie takes an age to eat her lunch.

When she is dropped off, Isaac and I either return home, go shopping or for a walk or visit Grandma, before returning to get Evie at 3.10.

We then go home, play, make tea, eat tea and argue about watching kids tv or grown-up programmes!

Daddy gets home from work around 6.30 and we have an hour with him before the battle to get the kids to bed.

Once they are both in bed I might tidy round a bit, sew, crochet, blog. I have the tv on but nver just watch tv; I’m always doing something else at the same time.

I always intend to go to bed at around 10.30, but invariably I’m so busy doing something, that before I know it, it is midnight and I know I’ll be up and down all night with the baby…oh well…it will pass and at least I’m not back at work until September!

    A 10.30 bed-time is just a dream right ;)? x

    I’m exactly the same with the 10.30 bedtime. Manage it maybe once a month, tops!
