1. Wake up to find two small people in bed with us

2. Get up, make breakfast for small people; return upstairs for shower and get dressed (jeans and top; luckily my office is casual)

3. Discuss the merits of the the Sam Silver Undercover Pirate series with son in kitchen while tidying

4. Help small daughter put milk, yogurt, butter back in fridge, which takes three times longer than if I’d done it myself 🙂

5. Put on load of washing (quick wash), remove washing from machine, hang up

6. Eat some breakfast (briefly sit down!), give up on coffee – no time

7. Quickly wash up a few items so I don’t have to come home to them later. No time to empty dishwasher

8. Go on to Young Vic website and spend ten minutes booking tickets for A Streetcar Named Desire – website is a pain, so takes ages. Simultaneously brush daughter’s hair with other hand. Get tickets! Whoop!

9. Brush small peoples’ teeth; brush own teeth

10. Realise have no make-up on; dash upstairs. Dash back downstairs to put packed lunch and book in son’s bag; kiss children goodbye, say goodbye to husband, who is taking children to childminder, while shouting last-minute instructions at each other 😉

11. Bin day!! Put bins out (eew)

12. Check emails – phew, nothing urgent

13. Write this and leave for work. Oooops, running late!! Still no time for make-up – taking bag with meeeeee

Byeeee! TOHC X
