I know when you have a child everyone tells you that you end up losing all the time you had. As some of you know I am not just a mummy I am also a third-year student and a blogger. I have 3 more assignments and then I am done I hand my final piece in on the 18th May. I can not believe how fast it is going but at the moment because I have so much going on I feel like I have no time for myself. At the moment I am getting a maximum of 7 hours sleep which is hard when you have a toddler. The tantrums can be enough to make me want to cry sometimes at the moment I know I have a few weeks of solo parenting in the next few weeks which is going to make everything else even harder.
I have found at the moment that if I try and spend my weekdays between 9-5 in the library completing uni work because it needs to be done. I do not have lectures every single day however, I do treat it like a full-time job because this is going to be something which hopefully I am going to have it in the future. During this time Jess is in nursery which means that she is able to play with other children which are always amazing. This allows me to focus on work without the having the distraction of having a toddler trying to play on my laptop when I am working. Or having Peppa pig on in the background which gets super annoying. I think that this is something which suits us all because of course, Jess wants to be with her friends.
Time on a weekend is at the moment spent as Jess time it is not something that I want to give up because I know how special this time is. I am adoring watching her grow up and having days out and exploring the local area at the moment. At the moment one of the days usually spent exploring and of course, if we end up having some days out I will review them and share them on my blog. The other day of the weekend is usually spent actually doing jobs this can be cleaning the house, decluttering which is something I am having to do as we are hoping to move house in the summer. This is sometimes when we end doing blog pictures because I am usually at my house with my lighting and products should I get them from brands are sent to my house.
I am finding that I am working on my blog on my lunch break which means that I am not getting much time away from my computer which I know is never good for you. I am even doing blog posts on the commute home because it is some time which I am not doing anything else productive. On nights I am even having to write posts because I do not want to get behind on this at the moment I think I have a weeks worth of posts written. This is because I might actually have to take some time off when my workload becomes even more. I hope you understand if I go quiet for periods on my blog until the end of may. Don’t worry I will be back but I am hoping to keep blogging throughout.
This makes me wonder though when do I have time for myself because at the moment I feel like I rarely have any time for myself. I do not want to make myself poorly because my work load is too high so please work with me if I do go very quiet. I am still reading and watching videos trying to keep up to date with you all. I know in a few years I am going to look back and actually wonder how I managed to do all of this
Do you feel like you have no time for yourself?
