I love working from home, it’s a lifestyle choice and for me, I know it is the right one. Sometimes though, I do find that I have so much to do that I have to just take a deep breath and keep going.
I probably do take on too much work, but I only take on an amount that should be reasonable, all things being equal. The problem is though, all things very rarely are equal.
Our life doesn’t work like that, I doubt yours does either if you have young children. But I would never fail to complete work that I’ve accepted, so whatever happens the show must go on, and the work must get done.
Today was a perfectly normal day. A dog walk, a train ride and a trip to the park. The girls went to my dad’s house with my hubby this evening while I did a bit of work. As normal, I took a few photos during the day. So here is “a normal day” in photos.
Mercifully, the girls are both in bed now and I’ve only got about two or three hours of work to do, so I should be in bed by midnight or just a little after. This is an improvement because often it can be after 2 am.
Sometimes though, it would be nice just to have a day off, I can’t remember the last time I had a complete day off. I miss having time to be a wife as well as a mum and a freelancer. I know it sounds daft, but time with my husband is the thing that has really slipped since work got a bit manic.
On the plus side though, I spend every day with the girls and will continue to do so until they go to school – and even then there is a possibility that I might end up home schooling if we can’t get them into a nice school.
So there we are, the reality of being a work from home mum. It’s not all rosy, but when it comes down to it, I’m happy with my lot.
