I sleep very well and  I wouldn’t give up a thing but how many times have I been asked if I am bored being a full time mummy!

    There needs to be more hours in the day, or I need to learn to manage on less sleep

    Blimey! I’m with you on the comments. My mum quite often comes round to keep me company because “you must get so bored sitting on your own all day”. Really! lol

    There is not time to be bored is there – always something to do. I don’t have time for coffee though or if I do it gets cold. Love the way you wrote this blog Becky.

    Wow Becky. Thats a lot. Pat on the back to you because children don’t stay young for long.So before you know it you’ll have all this free time on your hands and you’ll be wishingto be busy again.
    My days are very similar to yours- however I struggle to wake up early these days. Are you bored of being a full time mum? Well for me I am,as much I love the little one that is at home with me. I like the fact that you use breathing techniques throughout your hectic day.

    It’s busy and can be very dull – I agree it’s a juggle. I miss office gossip and banter the most although am discovering that blogging is helping me feel less lonely ; b

    It can be a bit repetitive, but no day is ever boring there is just so much to do!

    I never used to believe those mums who said it was harder work than being at work, but they were right. I’ve never worked so hard in my life! Thanks for entering the blog carnival, Becky.

    See what you mean about the parallel lives! Great summary of a typical day as a working stay at home mum 🙂
