Days of monotany

I'm a seriously fed up wee lassie. My days are just running into one another with little to no differnce between them.

It's my own fault. I knew that starting a home business as my one and only employment would cause problems like this, although I thought I would handle it better.

My days have fallen into one single format - with the only exception being Yorkie's days off work, and Sundays when I ferry Yorkie round at different times.

  • 7am, get up have a wee and a wash.
  • 7.15am, power up the PCs and check all my emails
  • 8am, drive Yorkie to work
  • 9am, call in at post office on way home and post off orders, or get home and do quick housework jobs
  • 9.30, check emails again, reply where nessessary, send of required responces
  • 10am, start work on web sites and eBay
  • 12pm, remember that I have missed breakfast and that's why I'm starving. Have lunch at my desk (why?? I'm at HOME!).
  • 12.30, return to work - or if work is done for the day, play sims
  • 5pm, collect Yorkie from work
  • 6pm, arrive home and prepare snack and a coffee for Yorkie
  • 6.30, check emails
  • 7pm, either: do avon rounds, bake bread, or have an hour playing computer games with Yorkie
  • 8pm, cook and serve dinner, clean kitchen
  • 9pm, return to playing games with Yorkie with a glass of red wine (for my health and circulation, ahem)
  • 10pm, go to bed ("snuggle" or watch a movie or read, or combination of) and go to sleep
THAT'S MY LIFE!

Notice things that are missing? Like going to they gym, which I used to love, and the sauna, which was perfect "me time", or like chatting with friends, or shopping, or going to the salon, or countless millions of other things that 20-something girls do for fun.....

I'm not saying that I don't do ANYTHING else, because that's not true. Sometimes I have a Friday Pub Lunch with friends, sometimes we have a few people round or go to visit them.... But sometimes it feels like my life is just so monotanous. Sometimes the only way I know what day it is when I get up in the morning is by which day my Pill packet is on.

I need to get myself sorted out!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
