The Never Ending To Do List
Please don’t tell everyone but just recently I have been ever so slightly disorganised. I have enjoyed updating my blog so much otherwise important things have been neglected.
Don’t get me wrong this is nothing any normal person would pick up on, but like I have mentioned before I do like to be in control of well everything.
I honestly thought when the twins were born this would improve, due to the fact I had four children, and things would just have to give a little, this obviously did not happen because if you are that sort of person there is no getting away from it. I have recurring dreams that I am drowning or that my feet are stuck in concrete and I’m trying to run, now thats got to speak for it’s self very deep I know and i’m sure there’s medication for it.
So my never ending, ever growing to do list goes on and has the most ridiculous things on it which I could probably take straight off. Does sorting out my neighbours garden over my fence count as one of my jobs? probably not but you get the idea.
Well, Christmas is just three weeks away now and as much as I try really hard I know I am getting ever so slightly twitchy, well thats’s what I will call it anyway although i’m sure Andrew would call it some thing much stronger. I can’t help it four children is alot of presents, and with massive preconceptions my kids love the way things have always been done.
I love traditions and the fact they think their Christmas’s are always so perfect is great, but on the other hand the pressure is on. Rosie is now eleven and so hard to buy anything for yet still I don’t want her to seem to have any less than the other three.
The twins should be easy at only four but because we saved so much from Rosie and Jack this is also proving quite difficult. Luckily Jack is my saviour as it really won’t matter what he gets he will love it and play with it, he is definitely our easy child and god we deserve at least one!
Well my list of things to do is off the richter scale and my stereo typical smiley mum is hanging on by the skin of it’s teeth. So I have to sort this out and do some serious shopping.
My wonderful very organised friend didn’t help when at the end of November no less handed me a very beautifully wrapped bag of presents for all our family complete with card!
So off I go next week to hit the shops and hopefully for once be grateful our bank account has taken a hammering, because this will be guilt free shopping and all in a good cause, making my children’s christmas as special as ever.
Let me know how all your christmas shopping is going and how your all holding up.
