Our prompt from the lovely Sally this week was routine.
I am very much a creature of habit, I found this out many years ago when I changed jobs but still walked the same way home that I had been for years even tho it took twice as long, I had not even realised I was doing it until my other half insisted on walking me home after dark and asked where I was going!
06.00am Alarm goes off (if the baby has not already woken me up), get coffee, read some blogs
06.30am wake up oldest two (poke and prod them till they actually get out of bed)
07.00am wake mess maker, get breakfast, prompt oldest children to wash, dress and brush teeth
07.30am the boy leaves for school, prize the girl from the bathroom mirror, remind her makeup is not aloud at school and tell her to remove it, spend the next half hour asking mess maker to hurry up with breakfast as she is not yet dressed
08.00am the girl leaves for school, mess maker gets dressed, dress baby, fix packed lunch for mess maker
08.20am walk mess maker to school

02.00am give in and put the baby in my bed

06.00am it all starts again!!!!
Throw in 101 nappy changes and a few snack times and even the odd visitor every now and again thats my weekday routine!
Weekends how ever are all about doing stuff and going places (we are going to a flower show later today)!!!
Any who after way to much waffle here is my photo for the week....
Coffee, my morning must have and normally partnered with a slice of cake, a nice biscuit or at times even some chocolate, best way to get the day off to a good start!
Have a great day x
