Having your cake and eating it too….

Hey all and a very happy bank holiday Monday to you!

I have just sat down, yes you read correctly, just sat down. I got up and starting cleaning my mess laden house at 0730 hours this morning and have just sat down, about 4 minutes before our guests are due to arrive for a bbq. 

I love my home, it’s still very much a work in progress but it’s full of things I love and I like to think that anyone can feel relaxed and happy here. However, my husband and I are both shift workers with four and six year old boys, two cats, a leopard gecko and a diary full of lovely things to do. So… On the weekends that Karl is on nights and I am on earlies and we literally work and sleep the house ends up looking a bit like a bomb has hit it. 

I am so grateful for my efforts when I sit down and can enjoy how calm and peaceful everything seems when it’s all tidy and everything back in place however I will now need to try and stay awake long enough to have a lovely evening with some of our best friends.

Now…. Pass the prosecco xx
