Nothing is more exhausting than....

Nothing is more exhausting than the task that is never started
Gretchen Rubin (The Happiness Project)


Although a nine month old who still wakes once or twice a night to feed is a close contender...

At the moment I feel that I am only just keeping up with my "real life" - I have been back at work 80% since Mid March and the transition back to working life has been relatively smooth. It's a good day when we all get to nursery/Work on time, with clean clothes and full bellies. I have just about got a good weekly routine going for cooking / cleaning / washing / shopping. Mr.ncot has just started his MBA (away every other weekend). Between us, we are doing okay.

BUT this leaves no time for blogging or photos. I have 500 photos to sort out from the last 6 weeks, plus 6 weeks of Patrick/Markus updates. And this is the task that is exhausting me! I feel so much better when I have regular time to write and "organise" my virtual life, but am just not sure where to find this time. I need to make this a priority though, as it makes me feel much more balance and sane.

Today I have the day off, so expect a few blogs and photo updates!

Best present ever - a day for me!

Today I will be:

reading my RED magazine in bed, with a nice cup of tea
sorting my photos and blogging
going into town to buy me some new work clothes (and maybe a few things for the boys)
taking myself to lunch
Having my hair washed and dryed straight
having an eyebrow shape
mini family photo shoot with the lovely Claire Pearson (hope the weather improves)
Out for meat with Alan
