Timeline of my day. #Blogtober16

I am taking part in Blogtober16 and will be writing posts with various themes/prompts throughout October....


Sometimes I feel my life is a bit like Groundhog Day....The same over and over but I'm not complaining. I like the routine....

Here is how an typical weekday in my life goes....Depending on what shift Stu is on at work it can vary....I seem to do less housework when he is at work though....hehehe

6.50am - My alarm goes off and I hit snooze. Usually quite a few times...Oops....
7.20am - I drag myself out of bed and wake the kids up then get myself dressed....
7.25am - Becky is usually up and getting dressed Ellie needs more encouragement to get out of bed....
7.30am - By now I feel like my bladder is about to burst so I rush to the loo....
7.40am - Breakfast time for the kids. They are pretty self sufficient now and make their own most days....
7.45am - I switch the laptop on....Get a coffee....Have a look on Twitter, check my emails and promote my blog post for the day....
8.00am - I check Becky has everything for school and see her out of the door.
8.10am - Laptop off and I finish getting Ellie ready for school....
8.25am - School run....
9.20am - Back from the school run....

Between 9.20am and 2.40pm - Coffee, housework, I watch This Morning, blog stuff, prepare tea if needed....

 2.40pm - School run time....
3.20pm - Back home with Ellie...I will give her a snack, read her school book and do any homework with her that she needs doing and try and convince her to get changed out of her school uniform....
3.50pm - Becky gets in from school....Get her a snack and her and Ellie will usually play a bit of Minecraft, play or watch TV....
5.00pm - I make tea....
6.00pm - Wash the dishes....Sort the kids out with baths or showers and their uniforms for the next day....
7.00pm - Hollyoaks! Every day I watch it on E4.
8pm - I encourage the kids to start getting ready for bed....
8.30pm - Blog commenting and reading....More Twitter and blog post writing....
9pm - Depending on what is on the TV I have a bath or shower....If I don't have one on a night I will have one the next day sometime....
9.30pm - I watch TV and mess about on the computer....
10.30pm - Bed! I usually watch TV for a while....
Midnight - Sleep....

Putting it all down in front of me it doesn't seem like I do much but I do.....Really I do! 

On a weekend we don't plan things or have a routine! We usually have a lie in and have two very lazy days. The only thing I can guarantee that will happen is we all sit down together and watch Strictly and X-Factor.

  1. I love that you press snooze. I always set my alarm half an hour early when I was working just so I could have a lie in LOl #Blogtober16

  3. I am so bad with snooze especially on these dark mornings. Preparing tea during the day! This is a genius idea, may be this would help with the chaos that generally happens when I'm trying to cook and look after my 3.

    1. It is so much harder to get up when the mornings are dark!
      Yes, chopping the veg or whatever. It does make life easier!
      Thank you!

  5. I used to snooze my alarm from 6.30 to 7am every school day but it seemed to make it harder for me to get up. Since I changed my alarm to 7am, I now get up much easier. I don't know why!
