8.30am woke up, wished Miss 10 luck and love for her soccer game. Stayed in bed catching up with (messaging) a friend. Craving a coke and a brownie, I think we have both, but I shouldn’t. I really shouldn’t (I didn’t).
8.52am dragged myself out of bed, had a shower, got dressed and read emails. I tend to read first and let things simmer and reply later.
9.30am Patrick is home today so we decide on a cafe date, this date includes a few minutes of talking about work and then about our childhoods, families, plans…
11am back at home. Replying emails and settling in to do some work. Work today includes a thematic analysis of data on a research project I’m working on.
12.50pm stopped for lunch (chilli and garlic spaghetti with breadcrumbs), first meal of the day. It’s so bad, I really need to get my act together. Thinking about a new blog post category – My Relationship With Food. I think I’ll do it! Turned on the telly, MASH was on. I left it on. Managed a little bit more analysis too.
2.55pm school run, which I normally do but Patrick went to get Miss 10. I washed dishes.
3.10pm met up with Patrick and Miss 10 for a quick spot of shopping. We’re easing Miss 10 into dresses and skirts. Basically to prevent the mother of all tantrums when she has to wear them. Talked a lot about compromise and how we need to meet half way.
4pm Miss 10 is happy with her dress, no tears, no tantrums. I worked on my mentoring program, got my client notes and appointments in order.
4.20pm back to working on the research project.
5pm ten guilt-free minutes on Instagram. It’s the small things.
5.15pm tidied myself up for an evening out.
6pm headed out for the night, took some photos of Miss 10, stopped by Patrick’s office.
9pm dinner. I love late dinners. I love being out at night with Miss 10, it allows us to spend quality time together. It bothers me that society expects children to be in bed so early. All three of us are happiest when we’re enjoying decadent desserts at 11pm!
10.45pm we make it home. Miss 10 tries her luck at getting in bed with us – no such luck! She heads to bed, I read…ohh that coke and brownie….
I suppose these are one of those posts that don’t really offer you much, but I personally love seeing how other people spend their days so the A Day In The Life posts are just a little bit of fun for me. I hope you enjoy them.
