Ok, so call me silly but I probably didn’t give this as much thought as I should have done. My Husband did his first night shift last night and got in at 5.30am. I got up with the kids as normal. We got breakfast over with fairly successfully with my Husband sleeping (hopefully) upstairs. I then came across a bit of a
massive issue. My clothes, make up, hair straighteners and everything else associated with getting ready to go anywhere are upstairs in the room where my husband is ASLEEP – great planning right?? Also, I have done no ironing this weekend (it is on my to do list for tonight, and probably every other night this week as well!). Molly and I both need tops ironing to get ready to then go out for a few hours and let my husband sleep peacefully. ARGHH!!
So first thing is first, I decide to write a blog about it then I don’t have to actually face up to the issue that it is 9.30 am and I am not dressed and neither are my kids (well to be fair Molly has jeans and a vest on?! Does that count?). But I really should have planned this a bit better. So tonight before going to bed I am going to make sure I have everything ready for tomorrow so I can get me and the kids ready without disturbing my sleeping husband!!
Now next thing on the list for today is to try to explain to my kids why playing marching bands with their toy trumpets and saxophones is NOT allowed today, and hiding Alfie’s beloved drum kit from him till later this afternoon. I also need to get into the bedroom to get clothes for me and Molly, the iron and ironing board and everything else I need to get ready to go out WITHOUT waking my Husband……….oh gosh I think it is going to be a long old week, is it really only Monday morning?! 🙂
