Working From Home With Kids

My advice is not to bother! 
Ha but then I have been in the thick of the Easter holidays and it’s not
easy juggling them and the blog, to be honest I have not been very productive
at all. Come the evening when they
finally go to bed, I don’t have the energy to bother, so my to do list is
growing at an alarming rate!!!

It’s hard, I thought their allocated screen time is a good time to boot up my
ancient laptop and try and reply to emails, comment on some blogs, perhaps even
if I am feeling VERY ambitious actually write a post, but its almost impossible
to concentrate.

They don’t just play the computer game they are currently
pretending to be baby versions of the characters so its gah gah voices, singing
in chipmunk high pitched screeches and telling me every detail of their
upgrades, battles and of course arguing over who gets to open the next chest or
drive the vehicle. Seriously I feel
like leaving the room and folding some washing… (Or perhaps rocking quietly in
a corner for a bit!). I swear the dog
learns from them as she is currently crying too, because now my laptop is on is
the perfect time for her to keep bringing me her toy to throw!!! If I don’t do it quick enough its doggie
tantrums here, my hubbie does not realise how nice it is to actually work in a
proper work place, without distractions!

But I try and write regardless because lets be honest I love
my blog, I like the chance to go to events we would not normally and it gives
me the flexibility to be at home with the kids when I need too. I don’t have to worry about them missing out
on something happening in the community, they can go to their friends on
playdates or off on a day trip. So I am
working through the chipmunk distractions and doing my best! SO if I am off my game a bit please make an
exception hopefully normal service will resume from Monday!

Come that day though I will be pining for them and the
house will sound TOO quiet. We will be
off out soon, bike rides burning LOTS of energy or another long hike!

Life is for discoveries and adventure x

I wouldn’t have it any other way really! I am so glad I don’t have to work long hours at a supermarket every weekend anymore, I never feel like I am missing out on seeing them grow, I could just do with FIVE minutes peace to get organised!
