Focus on life: week 3 - Take Time

Take time
I so thought this one was going to be alot easier then it was! Take some me time, OK well there was a  Stitch & Creative Craft Show that I wanted to go to on Friday, and now I HAD to go, it was just off the high street and during school time so if I timed it right I could feed the baby before I go then drop mess maker off at school on the way there, hopefully the walk would send the baby to sleep and I would have some guilt free me time, I had it all planed out then this happened.....


A midnight text Thursday informed me that the boys school would be closed due to snow, now ADHD and unexpected trips don't really mix but it would still be doable with promises of rewards for good behaviour, until another two texts informed me that both the girl and mess makers school would be closing early also so my day looked like this....


A snowy walk home from school. So time to rethink 'me time'. Hmm well the walk home and all the excitement of the snow sent the baby to sleep....


So after a long walk in the snow maybe I would get some me time and have a nice hot bubble bath, with the girl watching the sleeping baby, the boy playing his PlayStation, mess maker watching one of her princess films and the promise of going out to play in the snow if they are all well behaved for 20 minutes I took my me time photo....


and headed off to the bathroom for 20 mins of bubbly peace and quiet..... erm well in an ideal world maybe but in a house where 6 people (mostly children) live no, firstly there was next to no hot water so a luke warm bath it was until 5 minutes in when the baby decided to wake up screaming, hmmmm well I was not enjoying it anyway so off to calm the baby.
I did eventually get my nice hot bath an hour ago all that was missing was a good book (can't remember the last time I read a book) and a glass of wine (that will have to wait till the baby is no longer breast feeding), now I'm off for an Early night and hopefully (baby allowing) some much needed sleep, Where dose the time go?

Have a great day
