Anyone who has a Facebook account or a blog must from time to time feel like this… That the Cyber YOU that you put out there really is a “nicer” you or a “better” life. Some times it is almost like I live 2 lives. The crazy wild house behind the calmer bloggy constructed walls.
I do try to be REAL.. But today as I met a very nice follower my crazy ME took over as I filled her in on my mornings antics..
I described my life as the life of a duck… Calm on top…but my feet are paddling like shit under the water line with the endless “things” that fill my day and my life.
It is not a facade it is just that some parts of my blog life dont cross into the walls of home. There is a personal boundary that keeps the two from blending into one, yet there are always snippets that sneak through…
So my point… This morning I was told by Miss 6 that it is Recipe week at school and being Friday it is her show and tell day. Silly me for asking if she had anything to take… This is when the bomb was let off!
So my morning has been on the go since 6am & mostly business related, at 8.30 we flew out the door to head to school… NO LUNCHES FOR THE KIDS as I hadnt had time to do that.. I told them I would return with them. I did my Friday school duties with Mr 4, raced home for a 9.15 appointment of which she was 15 minutes late (luckily as I got there as she was at my front door)!
Did the appointment. Made the kids lunches to be back at school by 10am for morning fruit snack.. I LOVE my frozen lunches and snacks!
I then had a brain wave…. Instead of racing home cooking and having a kitchen war with my oven as my levels were soaring I thought I would head to Woolies as thankfully yesterday was payday and here it comes READY…..
Buy Caramel slices… Cut them up… Put them in a clip box.. Print out the recipe… Sprinkle some 100’s & 1000’s around and present them back at school this afternoon….
CARAMEL SLICE DONE FOR RECIPE WEEKS SHOW AND TELL!
I know this is cheating but it has saved my sanity.. As I am now giggling and blogging about it while my levels settle and I drink hot coffee in my cleanish house….
What is your best ever Mummy Cheat?
