Hi,

I would love one of those diary´s so here goes!

A typical day for me begins at 7 a.m. I get myself ready, wake my three boys, get them dressed - then its downstairs for breakfast, brush teeth, wash - then its off to school, we live quite near the school so if its dry we usually walk or cycle. Then its home for housework, shopping, etc.,

One of my boys finishes at 1.30 so I walk for that collection. The other boys is off at 2.30 so usually i drive for that collection.

On Tuesday and Wednesday we have after school activities and seem to be in and out of the car a lot. Monday and Friday are the most relaxing, because once they are home we dont have to go back out.

Then its the usual round of homework, tv, dinner and bed.

My weeks are like groundhog day, but I wouldnt change a thing - its great to be able to be at home will time with my children and I feel very lucky to be in a position to be able to afford to do it.

Thank you.

It
