Sorry this is just a bit of waffle I'm afraid....and nothing much to do with beauty reviews!
Saturday - I was stripping beds (thought I'd make use of the good drying weather!) whilst putting washing in, after having hung out the previous load, whilst uploading blog photos for a post, whilst taking more blog photos for further posts, whilst taking down my mum and dads shopping list (they're getting on a bit and can't get around like they used to so I often pick up bits for them), whilst trying to clean the bathroom, whilst planning what to feed the family on for the weekend...
Shortly after I rammed down a quick slice of toast and cheese (as I was heading off to pilates/gym and then Sainsburys shop), choked whilst gulping down water with my vitamin tablets because I was trying to talk to my husband about something I needed doing whilst I was gone, got told off by him for dashing around - said I was going to get indigestion and to slow down ... in the back of my mind I knew I'd be unable to dash about for the next hour during my pilates class!
Sometimes I have the ability to do this thing - to whirl around (like in an old fashioned musical!) - spinning from one job to the next whilst always preparing the next move...my mind seems to plan the next couple of jobs as I do the current one - in order to squeeze every ounce of productivity out of me, ....and my body goes with it and I fly around (not literally of course) between jobs and woe betide anyone that gets in my way (usually my poor hubby lumbering around in the kitchen).
So - it's almost like a Jekyll and Hyde existence or should I say Hare and Tortoise syndrome - one fast and furious and one slow and plodding!
Is it just me? Does everyone do this to themselves and then suffer the 'burn out' or are you a steady pacer, accomplishing things in a sensible manner and not reaching for the impossible?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining - I love that life is full and brimming but maybe I just need to take my mum's advice and sit down now and again - (in between the mayhem) with a tea/coffee and read a magazine/blog. Pretty sure she didn't when we were young though!
Just one more thing - on occasion I've been asked by (male) colleagues at work 'will I be increasing my hours now both kids are growing up a bit?' - my reply is usually - 'I'm actually really busy when I'm at home and don't know how I'd fit everything in' - to which they say 'well what else is there to do once you've got the kids off to school? Push the hoover round and shove a load of washing in?' - I reply 'You ain't got a clue mate...!'
What would your response have been?
