Things at home have been a bit manic lately. Our builders are two weeks into our loft conversion and as we're still living at home that means that there's noise, dust and a change of routine to get used to.
As the builders start just after 8am I need to make sure all three of us are up, dressed and downstairs by then which doesn't really fit in with the lazy morning routine that Little Miss C and I developed over the last couple of years. Daytime naps have also had to be downstairs in a travel cot in a not very dark front room and playtime in the garden isn't always possible depending on what the builders are doing. This means that there have been loads more trips to the park than usual, numerous trips round the shops and imposing ourselves on friends just to keep us out of the house.
When I woke this morning the first thing I said to Mr C was that I needed a lazy morning at home. All this going out can be exhausting – even without being 6 months pregnant. She wasn't even awake at the time, but LMC must have been listening as that's exactly what I've had today and my mood has improved so much as a result.
No planned activities at all, but lots of spontaneous crafting, drawing, jigsaw puzzles and music making. I've even managed to get some work done and some chores ticked off the list too. Eleven o'clock I put the kettle on, had a cuppa and a biscuit and LMC sat and ate her snack with me. No complaints and for once I actually manage to drink a whole cup of tea straight after making it. LMC has been as happy as anything all morning and I've had great fun too. Quite why she's been so happy to let mummy indulge in a day at home today and not on other days I have no idea, but I'm making the most of it while I can!
