06:00 A usual day for me starts at 6:30am, but I woke up at 6am couldn't check the time as thought my phone was fully charged was not, as the adaptor had not be connected probably, damn it. Thinking it was my turn to have a lay in, it appeared not. We have before now when elv has been on the late shift alternated, so I get up one morning to do sons breakfast and my husband then does the next day. However this had been changed with my consult and so the lie in I was looking forward to did not happen.
So today I did my sons breakfast, which now getting my son to sit still has now become the challenge. He had Quaker Oats today with banana, which I then mix in some of his Toddler Milk.
Soon we are planning on getting him on Full Fat milk, which is recommended for toddler to introduce them to cows milk. We whilst I feed him his breakfast and usually he will drink the rest of his milk watch either Tiny Pop or Cbeebies channel. Got to admit I kind of like watching childrens TV as it takes me back, however even though you still have care bars, My Little Pony, Postman Pat and Thomas The Tank Engine, some are very knew and have no idea what these funny looking creatures are supposed to be.
07:30 He didn't want to drink the rest of his milk in his bottle so thought great take him upstairs to his cot so I can get back into bed.
08:00 As my husband knew I was not entirely happy with the sudden change of routine, after he had his shower he went to the shop to get some eggs, so we could have a nice cook breakfast. We don't do this all the time, but now and again.
I then whilst Elv doesn't have to be at work until 11am took advantage and did some sorting out. I did a revamp of my cube units in our bedroom on Monday to make them look better and to change things round. Even though it felt good to have a clear out, and was trying once again be Ruthless, (see last blog) found it hard to let things go. I had loads of notebooks with written notes of when I did my Fitness and Nutrition course that I wanted to keep to use for research, but still after finishing off sorting the bits I kept hold off and did manage to dispose of some still are in a pile of "Where can these go so I don't forget about them but they don't start adding up again leading to further clutter" TO BE CONTINUED.
I was waiting for a delivery today hence why I stayed in only to find out the online catalogue company I ordered it from tried to deliver it yesterday and so hoping that I hadn't wasted my time staying in hoped that my new Toilet roll holder I ordered would turn up. It is now 18:57 and I am still waiting. I had to ring up the delivery service to rearrange delivery for Saturday when The Hubs was in looking after bubby.
Not to worry it gave me a chance to continue to sort things out until my husband had to go and had just enough time to freshen up and put some clothes on. Today it was workout clothes as I would try and fit 10 minutes or some quick workouts through the day, whilst my son was asleep or when he is playing downstairs. Tried this but bubs kept wanting to walk through my legs or chase my feet. He however grabbed my bottoms, then was holding my hands, then holding one of my hands, then suddenly let go and took his first proper steps on his own unaided to his walker. I couldn't believe it, he looked like he wanted to do this for a while but couldn't get the confidence. I then of course wanted to tell the world ran upstairs to call The Hubs, who whenever something amazing happens his phone keeps ringing and goes to voicemail, which I leave a message and send a text, I then call my mum, at which my husband then tries to call me back.
11am: Managed to get some editing of the latest book I have finished writing, and draft a blog (this one) and take snapshots of my day, throughout the day to put on my facebook page related to this blog website tomorrow.
Noon: I watched Loose Women, part of This Morning and one of my guilty pleasures, Extreme Couponing. I just love the way they get things for free. I love watching these whilst I have my lunch, homemade macaroni and cheese, and a few chicken nuggets Ok not an entirely healthy one today but trying to stop eating too many bad snacks by making sure I eat throughout the day so I am full and won't need to snack and it has worked I have only had 1 snack. Result.
19:10 Now bubby has been fed and in bed, trying to finish this blog whilst dinner is in oven. However thanks to The Hubs whilst I finish this blog has taken over and getting food ready now. Pizza evening, again not entirely healthy but stops me from snacking and I am happy. I do like to cook but I do like to treat myself too.
Soon after we at this as we are early bedders, will watch TV in bed soon and I bet my bottom dollar that The Hubs will be a sleep before me as always. However he has agreed to do morning feed tomorrow so I get the lie I deserve that I didn't get this morning.
My days do differ depending on what shift The Hubs is on, but not putting pressure on myself as when I have I can get overwhelmed try to get a least 3-5 things done on my list completed, then I feel I have had a constructive day, not wasted and will save me a job tomorrow.
Many thanks for reading,
