Time – Word of the Week

This weeks word of the week is time. I could have chosen busy, but I don’t actually feel as though I’ve been busy, being busy means you get things done. I haven’t achieved that much so I’m going with time, and how I need more of it.

Monday was the weekly shop, which is normally done on Sunday, but I didn’t have time because we went out instead.
Tuesday I had to take ED to an appointment and took Star with me. Star didn’t want to go straight home so we spent lots of time browsing around the shops.
Wednesday we went out shopping for a desktop PC for Star but the one she finally chose was not in stock so we had to go back on Thursday.
Thursday was spent shopping for a desk for said PC and of course we picked up the PC and I set it up while OH fixed up the flat pack desk.
Now, it’s Friday and in about 15 minutes I have to go and pick up OH’s dad and take him to a doctors appointment, then I’m picking up ED from work as she finishes lunch time, then I’m taking No1 Son out shopping this afternoon.

When do I get some TIME for myself?
Well, I have had some time in the evenings once the kids are in bed, but I’ve been trying hard to get on with my blog work which is taking up all my time. However, OH has other ideas because all he’s wanted to do is discuss the politics of Scotland.

Next week could I please have a couple of extra hours in the day?

    Oh, the elusive 'time'! As you say, it's always all the more frustrating when you don't feel you've achieved loads either, though it sounds like you actually have. Hope you get some time to yourself over the weekend x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

      I guess I did achieve a fair bit, just not the things I wanted to achieve!

    Here Here – I've worked out that the day needs to be about 3 times longer than it is for me to fit in everything i need to do and want to do. So frustrating to not have enough time. We had a similar situation with a guitar for D over weds and thurs – Shop closed Weds, found another shop, only 1 type in stock, wasn't sure if right, so had to go back on thursday once we'd checked it was the right one. In the meantime he was in a rage saying i'd promised to buy it on wednesday and he couldn't comprehend that it was out of my hands. Hope you have a restful weekend with some time to yourself. x

      I'm not sure I'd actually have the energy for any more hours in the day though. I really thought I was going to have trouble with Star when the computer she chose wasn't in stock, but she took the news really well. x

    I need more hours in the day too…..I just can't seem to get everything done and then have time for myself.

      I'd love some time to myself, it may be a dream come true once I sort out a school for Star…then I probably won't know what to do with myself.
