One of the most difficult things about being a work from home mum is managing my time. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these people that wants to do anything extravagant like watching television or drinking a hot cup of tea. I pretty much know those things aren’t allowed when you’re a mum, let alone a mum who works.
I am happy with my lot. I look after the children in the morning and we usually do an activity for them and walk Pluto. Then we have lunch, very occasionally a friend or a family member will join us for lunch or, heaven forbid, we might go out.
After lunch, the girls have a nap and then when hubby gets home he looks after them for a couple of hours. During nap time, I am sometimes relatively undisturbed and can get on with some work.
When hubby has the girls I am occasionally lucky enough to manage two minutes of work at a time for a couple of hours. Of course interspersed with regular interruptions such as “Mum, Lia’s eating the dog” and “Mum, I can’t find my pink phone and I need to ring Father Christmas.”
