I've been wanting to paint her a picture ever since she was born & last night I finished one- just in the nick of time for her Birthday. I've called it Evie's dream & I'm so pleased with how it turned out, it makes me smile when I look it so I hope it will make Evie smile too.
And I've not forgotten that its also Mummy Monday and I thought why not start with me? So here is a typical day where I am juggling work alongside being a Mummy:
7-7.30am Evie wakes up so I give her some milk and then we play with her toys in bed for a bit
8.00-9.00 Make & give Evie her breakfast & get her ready for the day.
9.00-9.40 Evie is playing whilst I take a shower & answer emails or make/finish any orders I have from Not On The High Street or Etsy that I want to post that day.
9.45-10.45 Take Evie to Hartbeeps - a fun, sound play class.
10.45-11.00 Bring Evie home, give her, her milk & put her down for a nap.
11-12.30/1.00 Whilst Evie is asleep I either work on any outstanding freelance briefs/finish orders/create new ideas.
1-1.30 Give Evie her lunch.
2.00-3.30 Either run some errands in town/take Evie for a walk stopping at the playground/meet up with a friend.
3.30-5.00 Come back home, give Evie her milk then we play, juggled with housework
5.00-5.30 Make & give Evie her tea
5.30-6.30 Either go out for another short walk/play in the garden or play indoors/watch some of the baby bedtime hour on CBeebies.
6.30-7.00 Daddy comes home and gives Evie a bath whilst I get on with any day to day housework/tidying up Evies toys etc
7.00-7.15 Give Evie her milk, read her a story & put her to bed
7.15-8.30 Carry on with some design work or house work.
8.30-9.30 Eat & relax in front of the TV
9.30-11.30 Carry on with my design work. If possible I try & make 11.30 the cut off point because personally I struggle to function on less sleep!
So there you have it- a day in the life of me :) I think seeing your day laid out like that really helps to put into perspective what is actually physically achievable in one day. Mummy Monday will be back next week!
