A day in the life - Thursday 17th November 2011

This is what I did yesterday :) Laura chose the date for this Day In The Life but it doens't look like she has written hers yet.

6.27 - alarm goes off and I wake up so I can listen to the news on Radio 2 at 6.30.

6.35 - switch laptop on (it lives in the bedroom overnight after the break-in)

6.37 - check email and write today's Cuteable post (should have been last night but I was too tired)

6.37 - 7.05 - sort emails, shops etc online and then tell girls that it is breakfast time

7.10-7.40 - breakfast. I had porridge with honey today plus a cup of fruit tea and a yoghurt drink.

7.40-7.50 - sort girls lunches for school and find 60p for anti bullying wrist bands (selling them at school)

7.50 - 8.25 - get dressed, teeth, hair etc

8.25-8.35 - pin zips into the last two chickens (for a new stockist) ready to sew later while Matt wrapped presents for our new nephew!

8.40 - 9.20 - school run (we stood outside school and chatted for a bit with some friends)

9.25 - cup of tea and start writing this list!

This is the tea of choice at the moment!

9.27 - 9.50 - sew the two remaining chickens.

9.50 - finish drinking my cup of tea - it's still hot! Wonders will never cease!

9.50 - 10 - dash around gathering packing materials and boxes and envelops to get stuff packed up. Have to rush as Homes Under the Hammer starts at 10 :)

10 - 11.30 - packing the chickens up , parcelling them up along with presents for tiny nephew (eeeek!) and a bit of paperwork that goes along with a new stockist. Home Under The Hammer was watched too.

11.35 - 12.05 post office, and a trip to sarnie shop. Update this list.

12.05 - 12.50 - lunchtime. Eating sarnie and checking blog etc. I had a queen of clubs sarnie. Yum!

12.50 1.10- head down to give blood. App not til 1.15 but have to get taz out and it doesn't always start! Pop dryer on just before I dash out too.

1.10 - 1.55 - give blood, chat to nice people doing it, watch needle go in etc :) Have some nice juice but no biscuit and try not to laugh at lady who bitches and moans about everything!

My arm after giving blood. No bruise - yeah!

1.55 - 3.05 - Asda and Halfords - boring but necessary. Food and antifreeze for Taz's engine bought.

3.15 - arrive home just as Matt is going out to get girls. Ask him to go up by himself so I can put dishwasher on,shopping away etc. He's a super star so does :)

3.15 - 3.40 - do stuff above and take photo of arm. Also chop up some more of the Gudrun Sjoden catalogues.

3.40 - 4.05 - snack for girls, checking email etc. Update this list!

4.05 - 4.35 - randomly surfing the web including looking at clothes I can't afford :)

4.35 - Anya pulls my plaster off my arm where I gave blood. She is good :)

5.16 - 6.15 Tea time, chatting with girls and Matt, sorting dishwasher etc

Wow! You are a vision of organisation and productivity with a touch of pizzazz thrown in for good measure! I'm not going to be able to write my post for another few days, but I took extensive notes and did actually have an unusually busy day. I will share all in due course!
