So it’s been more than 7 weeks of bliss at home. Fast-paced renovations, building business and blabbering babes have been the order of the day.
I have really been tested to my limits especially with Chelsea and Kirsten being at home. I am totally overwhelmed. Everyday is a chase after wind or to me it feels that way. The day starts at around 6h30 when Kirsten wakes up. (07h30 if she really wants to spoil me)
Then my day only ends after midnight. It is a constant nagging and fighting and crying and they get up to big mischief while I try to get on with chores and running the business.
Since now, we haven’t found a creche we were comfortable with. So I am glad to announce that if all goes well this will be their last week at home! They will be joining the creche next Monday! I am counting the sleeps! Three cheers for me-time! At least I thought so, then I remembered all the to-do lists!
Check the list of reno-related things still to do:
- Front door (kitchen door) needs to be painted
- Roof needs sealing
- All Burglar bars and window frames need to be painted white
- Bricks under kitchen sink needs to be painted
- The lounge needs to be painted (both walls and ceiling)
- Steam clean couches
- Plaster window bands
- Study’s ceiling to be painted
- Walls needs painting
- Finish painting main bedroom door (after the mishap that happened!)
That is just half the list of to do’s. That is besides all the household chores and office work. It is a mammoth task, but at least I will be able to focus systematically working my way around things. No interruptions! Maybe I will even find time for a bubble bath or so!
