I'm a miserable bandster today.

The school holidays are really trying (I wanted to write rude words but didn't want to offend) my kids have also decided that it would be best if they wake up before 6am (every day) so i'm shattered and i've had enough. The constant round of entertaining them and keeping the house clean and tidy while they try and wreck it is just too much. I'm so tired that I want to cry.

I gave in to head hunger last night, it was maybe a reaction to having a pretty rubbish day with the kids, i'm not sure. I was hungry, not just head hunger, really hungry. So, trying to make a better choice I ate some granola, then I had some biscuits, this was whilst I was up late sewing a grass skirt for Izzy's tennis lesson today.
The scale says 16st 5 (229 lbs) today and I don't feel that I deserve it. What with being rudely woken with something falling down in the main bathroom (after Isobel used it) at 5.30 this morning and the scales being horrible I want to give up and eat my own body weight in chocolate!


  1. Alison.. some days are as great as others.. can you grab 15 minutes for YOU.. and do a refresh.. I don't have the little ones anymore.. but I do find if I can just ask the immediate people around me to give me 15 minutes to unplug.. I find it helps.. Hang in there.. tomorrow will be better!

  2. It's amazing how stress affects all aspects of our lives, right? And having little kids around the house is indeed stressful and exhausting. I don't know how old your kids are, but as mine have gotten older it's given me great pleasure to make a list of chores for them to complete.

    At any rate, hang in there. This too will pass.

  3. Feel better...:0( Kids definately can take you to the edge... xx

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hang in there, we all have bad days....
