Fitting It All In

'There's always time, you just have to make it..'

You know when there are so many things you want to do and yet there feels like there's no time at all to do it? That feeling you get when you walk around your home and see the laundry pile that is crying out to be folded and put away, the children's room is a mess and your rooms are all cluttered...you start eyeballing everything, contemplating chucking it all away. At least then you could do what you really want to do.

I really need to exercise. At the same time I need to eat dinner and run up and down the stairs at least 6 times to get my children to nod off. After all the washing up, laundry tasks, popping to the shops (all the day to day stuff) I really just want to pop my feet up with a hot chocolate at the end of the day.

I also want to craft. I love taking part in swaps and I want to make my own Christmas cards this year. Then there's studying which is a priority really. Not that I've picked up my books in 2 weeks...Naughty, naughty..I don't think I have too much to do. Not really. It's just that I want to do all the fun things all the time and all the crappy stuff gets in my way! Not to mention my quilt and sofa are much more appetising than walking around this drafty house doing chores!

How do you 'fit it all in'? Do you? Do you sacrifice those boring chores in favour of a quick crafty session? Or do you feel you have to get everything done before settling down to projects, dinner and work outs? I'd love to know!

  1. It's the story of my life right now. I never seem to have any time to do anything. And when I do have some time I spend so much time deciding how best to spend that time I run out of time! LOL!

    1. Lol that is so true! I should spend less time thinking and more time doing!

  2. It's definitely a challenge to fit in some of what I want to do, let alone fitting it all in! I think there has to be some compromise so sometimes it's a quick convenient dinner so I can spend time doing crafts or other activities with my children. Some days I get stuck into cleaning and getting the washing done and forsake the blogging and more enjoyable tasks.... It's difficult to get the right balance though.

    1. Hmm I agree..I like the quick dinner idea. As my 2 are quite fussy anyway they prefer those meals instead of the time consuming tea time battle! I may try that, i'm sure it'll free up some time. x

  3. You could turn the chores into a sort of exercise workout? For example, ironing is great for toning arms...

    You'll get there :) Everything always seems worse when you feel overwhelmed by untidiness, so maybe start there and then once things are tidy you'll find time for the fun :) xxx

    1. I really need to de clutter and you've really hit the nail on the head there! Who isn't happy when things are tidy!? As for ironing..I would never iron haha! Maybe ill use the hoovering instead! xxx

  4. Oh I feel like this too much of the time! Even when I spend ages tiding Alex has usually made a mess of the next room, so I think why bother! I wish I had a craft room I could just shut myself in for a while and forget about the state of the rest of the house (if only)!
