SOOOO Tired!

Ever feel like maybe you've taken too much on? I'm wondering if maybe I have!

What with doing the cleaning job 5 days out of 7, ferrying Yorkie too and from work, working for Avon, trying to keep my own business from going under, and now I am registared on my OU course which starts next month too.

I'm starting to feel that there are not enough hours in the day any more! And to make it worse I have lost most of this moring by over-sleeping! I woke up half an hour ago. In half an hours time I have to get out with some more Avon (requests from customers who didn't have the money last night, bless um), and then I have to get my self kitted out for two cleaning jobs which will take up my afternoon with almost as much driving as cleaning.

So why am I wasiting time on Blogger right now? Well, I have a 20 minute window (where I have done all the small jobs I need to do this morning, and I don't have enough time to start a bigger job) so I thought I'd update this. And ponder the grimness of people who miss-use public toilets.

Twice in the last week I have been to the Yatch Club (where you would assume people were 'nice') and have been met by scenes on YUK in the toilets there - which can only be used by members of the Club;

At the weekend one of the toilet rooms was covered in blood woth tissue from the toilet paper dispencer thrown all about the place. Apparently this is "not unusual on a weekend"... Lovely! And only yesterday the other toilet, when I opened the door, STANK... really really ponged, which made me cross as I have been using scented cleaning products and air fresheners to improve the smell. The reason this failed? Some one had left a dollop of poo on the FLOOR of the toilet! WHY??? For one, why poo on the floor then you are inches away from a toilet, and secondly, if it was (somehow) done by mistake, why not pick it up (with some paper) and flush it away!!! LIKE I HAD TO! Also, this same day, the middle shower room was trashed too. When I opened the door there were tracks of mud on the floor that looked like cycle tracks... and the toilet seat and lid were broken and filthy!

I've started up at the Campsite now... VERY posh! It's not realy a camp site, it's a trailer park for the seriously RICH! Big money! (mind you, people at the Yatch Club are wealthy too, so I'm making so assumtions). This job seems to be simple enough too. One staff loo, one public loo, staff kitchen, offices and reception. It's a 2 hour placement each day that I'm there and that is plenty of time but loads of polishing to do (which I quite like) to fill the time.

This afternoon I have my first shift at Age Concern too.

I have to keep reminding myself that I am a student again now, and this is a student job for me, not a career path. I wont be doing this forever. I'm only doing this to pay my way though this class and to top up the wedding fund.

I cleanied for aliving a while back and have seen the horrors that people are capable of. I can't imagine what their homes must be like. Obviously they can't care about cleanliness if they leave things in taht kind of state. If I did that kin of stuff at home I'd be picking fragment of skilelt out of my skull after the wife explained her stance on the issue.

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

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
