I Don’t Get Out Much

Mummy Confession: I don’t get out of the house much. With or without kids. School holidays have rolled around again, and that brings my stubborn side out. The side that hates leaving home. We have only left the area a handful of times, because the thought of it alone exhausts me. It’s gotten worse with the number of children. Though, I love socialising and getting out of the everyday routine, it’s so daunting just to get out of the house!

One of Those Days…Again

Mummy Confession: It has been a long and hard day today. I’m exhausted, my patience is running low, and I just want to sleep.¬† Sorry if this seems a little incoherent, but these are indeed the thoughts of an exhausted mother.

I’m, of course, in the middle of trying to eat my first meal of the day. Yes, it’s 1:00 PM, but its the first chance I’ve had to sit down. Among the treachery of a teething child and another¬†who has decided today would be the day she would begin using the toilet, it’s a bit hard to get anything done. It seems to be Read More
