You are all amazing X
Written by Claire Staddon
To all you working mums out there, I salute you! How do you do it? Bringing in an income, feeding the family and keeping the house in some semblance of order. I have to say I would like the magic ingredient that makes it all possible, as my house is beyond possible redemption and the cupboards are bare.
I am currently having to manage a full on domestic flea infestation, brought in by my delightful but clearly vermin ridden hairy beasts called Smokey and Rainbow. Both gazing innocently out of the window as I imagine little black specks hopping about my feet YUK. Tried the organic spray, it was like stroking them and asking them gently to leave and close the door behind them, NO JOY. So I have decided to skip plan B and go straight for the industrial strength insecticide. I really wanted to be mother nature but frankly with the thought of the Christmas frenzy to come I have enough to do to deal with the invited guests I have no compassion for the uninvited ones. Bug Bomb it is.
We are off to buy the Tree at the weekend, much joy will be have and much debate about size, yes I am told Size does matter. Why I ask innocently does the tree have to be real and have to touch the ceiling, how about a nice table size one? No Deal is the response. At no point am I going to have the Kirsty Allsop tasteful Christmas, but like her I can guarantee that everything will be hand made.
So to all those that juggle too many jobs, and have too much to do and not enough time I send you good cheer. It will get done, we will all cope and it is all worth it! (We hope)
Stay warm x
