Oh I could get to really enjoy this..... this is the first morning that I have managed to get rid of all 3 kids lol.
Graham had to get a taxi for his silly o'clock check-in at the heliport, and I got up half an hour earlier than usual - the plan was to be able to sit and have a couple of cups of tea before my peace was shattered. Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans - 5 minutes later, there were 2 wee faces following me around. So we had plenty of time to get everyone clean, fed, dressed and ready to go. So I took Scott and Willow to school - the good thing about the horrible rainy weather is that they don't need to line up and wait for the bell, they can just go straight in. So after they were away I had to drive Faith round to her playgroup, then....... FREEDOM!!
I popped round to Pamela's for a cuppy tea and a yap, then home to the most peaceful house ever. I don't think i have ever been in the house on my own before without at least one child following me around and it is bliss! I got to check my emails in peace, sort out my Farmville and Restaurant City on FB, then it was through to the crafty space to finish a card I started the other day. Back through to the pc to print off the details and sketches for this weeks challenges and back through to the craft space to make a start.
This is fantastic!!
But its never long enough is it? the peace was shattered at 11.45am when I collect Faith, then pick up Willow at 12. Thankfully Willow is only in half days for another week and from the 31st August she is in from 9am to 2.50pm every day. So apart from Faith my peace will be extended - and it gives me one-to-one time with Faith, might manage to crack the potty training with a bit of luck :)
I've just read this over and you would think all I want to do is get rid of my kids - that's really not the case lol Anyone who knows me, also knows I'm so not the maternal type, but I think its really important for our family that I'm a stay at home mum for as long as we can manage financially. I'm really lucky that Graham gets a decent enough salary to all me to do this. But as any mum will know, you do start to go a little round the twist when you're only surrounded by children 24/.7 - us SAHM's need a bit of me-time. Oh God, now I sound like I'm trying to justify my existence, and I'm not lol And I'm not looking for sympathy either - I do genuinely enjoy my life - but oh how I enjoy my own space too :)
