There are 168 hours in a week
37.5 of mine are spent working
10 travelling to and from work.
7 on personal grooming, having a shower, getting dressed etc
2.5 taking my kid to Guides
7 on entertainment
7 washing, ironing, cleaning
That’s 138 hours of my 168 and the last three are, at best, conservative estimations.
This leaves me with 29 hours to ‘myself’ but I’m a single mother to an 11 year old so much of that is taken up with running her to and from friends, doing the washing she forgot to put in the basket after the washing session is over, taking her to the shops or the movies or just general chit chat. I also have a 24 year old daughter so there’s the occasional doing for her. And a cat called Woody. Lets not forget him. He can be quite pissy.
Next week I will spend 6 hours travelling to and from a conference in the delightful Blackpool deleting my precious ‘free’ time down to 22 hours.
Later in the month 8 hours on a cold market stall with my talented cake making buddy to support her.
Amazingly I still find time for my lovely friends, the odd night out, the movies and a bit of lounging about.
I think I’m doing okay
But today I’m tired.
It’s one of those days.
Very tired today
