I have had a really busy week and am feeling a bit tired this morning. Yesterday was quite a day and it went like this
5am - Up, computer on, downstairs to make tea for me and my daughter, feed cats, put on kettle, empty and refill dishwasher, put on washer.
5.45-8am - take hubby a cup of tea and encourage him to get up, read emails, peek at Facebook, take my Scrabble turns, respond to emails, browse ebay for various bits, start work on tooth fairy pots letters and have a shower & dress.
8am - Go to our middle daughters (involves climbing up 6 flights of stairs to get to her flat) and I wait with the 2yr old & 4yr old while my husband takes her and 6yr old to his new school for his first day. He has been home schooled for the past year and was so looking forward to going.
8.45 am - leave daughters and return home. Decide what dinner will be this evening and get mince out of freezer. Make bed, empty washer and put clothes on airer. Tidy in lounge.
10 am - make coffee then iron. Put clothes away. Go into loft to look for green material to make a Robin Hood costume for grandson for his Beavers weekend sleepover extravaganza.
11.30 am - Prepare dinner for the evening, finish tooth fairy letters, make toppers for 30 tooth fairy pots, glue toppers on and print off letters.
2.50 pm - Collect middle daughter and go to hospital for her appointment while hubby collects youngest granddaughter then goes to school to pick up 6 yr old, then to nursery to collect 4 yr old, then up to hospital to pick us up.
4.15 pm - make dinner for hungry hordes. Dinner then tidy up and fill dishwasher.
5.45 pm - Pile all into car and drop 6 yr old at Beavers, take daughter and 2 youngest children home, help get them ready for bed then all go to Beavers for a meeting regarding weekend sleepover. Take them all back home and return home myself.
8.15 pm - Home and empty dishwasher and refill. Put wash load on and make a cuppa. Get ready for bed and catch up with Holby City.
9.15 pm - Tidy up and put cats to bed then fall into bed at 10.30 pm (early for me).
No wonder I felt tired when I got up at 5 am this morning!
