Tomorrow I will…

–          Wake with a grateful heart (as always). At 6am (not so grateful).

–           Get showered, dressed and make DS’s packed lunch.

A quiet day in Mrs D's household

A quiet day in Mrs D’s household

–          Be out of the house by 7am with two kids and their relevant bags, snacks and sports kits.

–          Drop the kids at school, come home, be at my desk by 8.15am.

–          Work till 12pm, have lunch, work from 12.30pm to 2.30pm, cook supper till 3.15pm.

–          Drive DD to dance class the other side of town while listening to her school reading in the car. Hang around for an hour, bring her home.

–          Give the children supper while talking about their day, supervise DD’s homework, bathe DS, cajole DD into the shower, read to one or both of them.

–          Put the children to bed (DH is travelling).

–          Get changed (maybe brush hair and put on lipstick), run downstairs, set the dining table for my book club group:  set out a cheese platter, grapes, crackers, wines, soft drinks;, plates, glasses, napkins; arrange the books, think about what I’m presenting.

–          Host book club… kick out book club. Tidy up after book club.

–          Fall into bed exhausted about 11.30pm (I hope – but book club can go on…).

Hats off to every other mum working the same kind of schedule – or more. And the Daily Mail wonders why  women are Oblivion drinkersOof.

  1. Sounds exhausting. Sometimes I wonder how us women of many hats manage to keep them all on our heads without having them tumble to the ground.
