a lazy day of Summer...
You may have noticed that my blog has lain unattended for far longer than is the norm.If you didn't notice... well, bear with me and be kind. Pretend you missed me like mad... The reason for my absence is a combination of events.It seems that the long lazy days of Summer are a thing of the past... a distant dream that I hold in my mind with fondness.
Having spent the Summer painting, drawing,reading....Oh, Gosh, how I miss it.... I find myself back in the throes of term time family life.Up at 7am, working,organising meals, organising children and their homework/sport/music,organising shopping for food... The list of stuff goes on and I am beginning to feel like the CEO of a major company - only they would have a PA to do all this #### whilst they went for power lunches.
No power lunches in my life, folks.I'm lucky to grab a coleslaw and corned beef sandwich... and that's on a good day!!
Still, please don't think I'm moaning about it all. Well, actually I am moaning, but its a light hearted one. The thing is though... where has all the "me time" gone?? Right now its 8.15pm and the boys are watching England play football on tv.This is the first time I've sat down all day and I just don't know how I am going to fit in running, or painting,or studying....or blogging.
The only way its going to happen is if I get up even earlier.Its going to have to be 6am for my run and I may have to buy a truck load of WD40 so I can oil my family machine and get us all to the places we need to go on time. I suppose I could sit back and make my life easier by just catering to all of these men in my world, but I am sooooooooooo not going to give up the things I enjoy.
I want to do all the activities I love... and more. Perhaps I should buy rocket boosters or a space time continuum device?
