Today I have juggled and balanced and motored and liaised and performed.

This is possibly the most mundane post I have ever written.


I am so tired.

Oh! But I do have some lovely news.....I have a guest post over here...with the lovely Ed Pilolla


  1. I am tired just reading this list. you are a superwoman. :)

    - Lisa

  2. Sounds a little like my day! How's the spandex suit feeling? I find mine a bit too tight ...

  3. Well done on managing all those things without losing it. I hope today is quieter for you.

  4. That post actually made me tired!! Reminded me of days gone by when my kids were smaller. No wonder you are tired. You deserve to be. xx

  5. Its amazing what you can fit into one day! On the upside I bet when you feel into bed you slept like a baby!!

  6. So tired just reading that! You are a superstar.
    It's also like my day today... my *cough* day off work! But I wouldn't have it any other way xxx

  7. Too much, too much... but some days a mum's gotta do what a mum's gotta do... hope you get in some seriously earlynights. Am inspired by your early risings to exercise, and am sure that you'd never be so productive without that exercise. Note to self.. set alarm clock!


I am a comment addict. Thank you so much for your words...xx
