It has just been pointed out to me that I mentioned the teddy story twice! I did wonder if I had mentioned it as I started talking and then I thought ‘No – no you didn’t!’ Duh! Sorry guys – serious baby brain and tiredness going on! My Day is like Groundhog day! I get up, look after kids, tidy house then watch kids mess it up again etc! Obviously some days are slightly different but overall this is it guys!
hi guys it is 20 to 3 and I am supposed to get the kids at 3 o'clock leave to collect them at 3 I'm gonna do a quick video right now I wanted to do loads I'll see how we get on and if I can do it in one take then I can do another hopefully in one take but then you never know I might get that done who knows and because I feel quite bad I didn't get them done last week so I'm gonna do one of my typical day because I've been asked do I work the answer's no I house work yes but actual do I have a job no I'm really trying to focus on this website and yeah I want to get the word out there about mental health and addiction and recovery as possible so I will tell you my typical day it's quite boring it is a bit like a groundhog day day in day out except at the weekends which really throw me because I've got no routine really at the weekend not like I have in the week anyway right so I get up at 7 my kids get up or get them breakfast I have all their clothes laid out ready on the sofa so they can start getting ready for school straightaway I have a cup of tea I used to have coffee but it's pregnancy or Condren care and I run my bath while they're getting ready I jump in the bath I then put toothpaste on their toothbrushes so they can do their teeth I'll do the youngest ones teeth and then my five-year-old comes in he wants his hair gelled and like today he was supposed to bring a teddy into school today the whole class for bringing a teddy so I told him he said I'm not bringing it Eddy I was like why he said mum it's not cool and he's five and I was like you know everyone's gonna have a teddy just bring in this head here's mom not cute so yeah he's really funny wants his hair gelled so I got gel his her and it's kind and rushed everything goes really quickly and we're out the door by 20 past 8:00 they're at school on time then I do the nursery run and then I come straight home and face the destruction that they've caused in the morning and have to open the blinds and open windows and start tidying up hiding away the breakfast plates and bowls and I just didn't really just do some tidying and cleaning housework clean the bathroom Hoover mop whatever I need to do and then I look at my little notepad which I have here where I have written down like lists of videos that I need to do and I decide what what I'm going to do on the day and I live from a laptop I said it up and not doing my video and then I start uploading and editing and round about this time it's time to Wiz out the door to go and clicks the kids again so I go now and again in the daytime now and again I will meet a friend for coffee like I did today and that's why it's kind of throwing me out and now I'm trying to squeeze a video in I think it's important that I do that because otherwise I don't get any adult conversation so I yeah I run out the school to the school I click the kids I'll go to the nursery okay my son I come back home as soon as I walk through the door I go straight to kitchen I turn the oven on or ice to start preparing dinner while they destroy my tidy flat and completely trashed all that tidying that I've done and I bring dinner out I sit down I have dinner with them once they have finished I go in I start doing the dishes and they play if they have homework they can sit down do their homework well they might watch a bit of telly and before I know it's about 6 o'clock now my kids every bedtime used to get into bed and go mom I'm hungry so now between six and half six I come out with a big plate with chopped carrots cucumber Apple pears strawberries mangoes or ever we have in and like varies every day I bring up like two or three items not all those things together two or three bring out snack time they're like vultures on it wolf it down and it's great they don't tell me they're hungry anymore then they'll have a glass of milk then I start getting um their teeth done I brush their teeth and pajamas on I get my pajamas I wash my makeup off have a clean and yeah I get ready for bed when they get ready for bed while they're putting their pajamas on because they do like to take their time putting them on I start getting their lunch boxes ready for the next day I dread opening my son's lunch box because it's often covered in yogurt and crackers and it it's just a nightmare every time I open it so I start getting that ready for the next day so it comes once they're in bed I can themselves preparing the lunches I'll get that done and then I go into that room and they'll be waiting in bed with their books that they've chosen my son likes done as well as my adult life space so sometimes get the older ones to sleep depending how tired little one is I say little one is two and I'll read like 10-15 minutes to one 10-15 minutes to the other and then it's like yeah by half seven and I go in and get a little one to sleep read to him get him to sleep once they're all asleep it's like hobbies by this point I'm in my pajamas so I've been kinda got the evening to myself and I will get breakfast stuff ready not breakfast their lunch is ready for the next day I get all the new clothes because my son needs new uniform every day because he covers it in food and God knows what else so I lay all the clothes out the underwear the socks and everything for the three of them I said that's all done and then once that's done I go I take my medication and I might have a snack or a drink like some milk recently because I'm getting heartburn because the pregnancy and then I come and sit down and depending how tired I am I can open the laptop and reply to my comments if like last night I had like an hour that I could have done it and I was just sat here like a zombie because I don't want to be replying to people and not giving proper answer and sometimes my brain just can't seem to switch on and so I just sit and I read a magazine and I make sure I'm in bed by 10:00 usually ten o'clock because otherwise I don't function the next day I need about nine hours sleep really to be able to function and and then I'm good I'm good I don't need to sleep in the day then so yeah that was my day and it's kind of like that day in day out everyday except like some nights obviously I've got all the ironing the uniforms to do and I didn't mention like obviously I'll have to do a wash load today and it's putting that away and um getting everything hung up and sort it there's all so much to do constantly but I'm kept really really busy at the weekend I'm thrown out a little bit for the simple fact that I don't have to get up and that's quite scary because then I've got no motivation just to jump up like and it does it throws me out whack so at least I've hired and I can't it's not like I can do videos on a weekend because I have my little ones running around crazy yeah in the morning I'll oh yeah in the morning when I get my kids ready I'm Quillan my five-year-old always wants his hair gelled and this morning I was talking to him gelling his hair and I said okay and you're supposed to bring a teddy to school because we kind of we got a note from the school saying all the children bring their teddy in and he said I'm not bringing my teddy in I was like why he said mum it's not cool it's five I was like Vicky and everyone's gonna have a teddy your whole class he said mom I'm not kid it really made me chuckle today and then my daughter who is seven and a half she went in with her teddy and I don't think anyone in her class is quite happy going in with her little teddy so yes that is my day like I said I'm not working yeah I would like to get to the point that I can but I am focusing on this at the moment and this keeps me really really busy so I have a lovely weekend guys I now have 11 minutes to I leave to collect the kids I'm gonna try and quickly squeeze in another video bye
