A-Z Challenge I - I'm Not Perfect!

Yes, I'm not perfect.

I wanted to share with you all a few reasons why I am not perfect. Not at all. Not in the slightest despite the pink, the prettiness, the crafty posts and all those family outings. I like not being perfect, I like being normal I just don't blog it because if I did well, you'd all be bored!

So here we are, I...

1) I spend at least 2 days a week in my PJ pants. If I have nothing to do and no where to go then I have no one to dress for. I will quite happily chill out with my boy while Midge is at school and relax! Alright so I have to clean up and cook, do all the usual stuff but I don't need jeans for that! The postman is used to my attire too so I don't even have to care about him!

2) Sometimes I let my baps run wild on the school run. I don't have a large chest which makes me happy. Now, I don't walk around bra-less in a t-shirt but under a good hoody and/or a coat I'm good to go. I hate bras alright? *burns bra*

3) I swear. A lot. It's a nasty habit that I really need to break! I actually think a girl who swears is pretty unattractive to be honest...Good job there's no one to attract anymore!! No seriously, I am trying but it's very hard. I owe the swear jar over £10. That's mainly to pay it back though to be honest. I liked that bag I saw...

4) I don't make homemade meals every night. Lots of people don't but they don't admit it do they? I'm not talking about take outs because not many people have a problem admitting they have a good old take out perhaps every week. We actually honestly don't do take outs but we do do chips and chicken nuggets or fish fingers. The biggest dinner in our house? The one which gets the children real excited? Cereal dinner night!

A big bowl of chosen cereal, a plate of toast, a drink of choice and a nice big banana, maybe some pudding too. A seriously yummy dinner although perhaps not very filling I don't know. My children enjoy the meal and they don't complain of hunger at 3am so I'm not about to feel bad about my weekly 'lazy tea.'

5) My children don't sleep. OK one does (finally, after 3 years of not) but one doesn't. I'm tired a lot of the time which means I'm not always the nicest Wife or Mother. I feel bad about that of course I do but again, I'm not perfect, I'm not a robot and I'm also allergic to lack of sleep* 

So there you go. My blog would drive me nuts if I wrote about how low I often felt, how fed up I am of Max and bloody Ruby at 12am. No one would want to read it trust me. I write my blog so I can look back and remember those cakes I baked with Midge and that mess my children made with big smiles on their faces. If that makes people think I'm a perfect little housewife then that's fine. Just so you know though, I'm not (no matter how much I wish I was!)

  1. Good for you for sharing! I always wear PJs if I am in my house and I am partial to a fish finger sandwich for tea at least once a week :-)

    1. PJ's are the best! And wow fish finger sandwich! Yum x

  2. Oh I love you! :D

    You should write a book!

    Don't you hate the Mummy Perfects at the school gates (we have one in particular that springs to mind...if ever I could poke someone right in the botoxed eyebrows it would be her)

    Your whole list makes two of us!

    At least! (and my cakes always look like that!)


    1. Oh i'm not sure what sort of book I could cobble together!
      I'm lucky that those Mums are few and far between but each to their own I believe. If i don't think about it all then i won't ruin my own confidence! Glad we're a like! xx

  3. What's wrong with pj's? I'm in them now. And no one is perfect! Good Post!! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for your comment. I totally agree, who is and what's normal? :)

  4. What a refreshing post. It is so nice to hear of someone out there who is 'normal'.

    I tend to be in my jammies by 6pm most evenings...and although I can't go bra-less after breastfeeding two children and swelling to a GG cup when I was pregnant, if I could I would!

    I salute you :)) xx

    1. Ah shame about the boobs! Freedom all the way for me haha!! xx

  5. Ha, great post. Have a great week Hannah!

  6. 1) Absolutely with you on this one!
    2) I am envious!! I daren't for fear of black eyes or knocking old ladies off the pavement!
    3) Yup, again I have to join you here too. I am worse when the kids aren't about
    4) Who does make homemade every night?! We *ahem* my husband doesn't. He is a fine cook but we just dont have the spare time for it
    5) My children sleep alright. In SHIFTS!! I'm sure they sit up there plotting who is on early and who is on late. They are NEVER awake at the same time. Adorable, angelic, gorgeous little sleep sapping sods!!
    Great post xxxx

    1. Ah Kat love you you're so bloody funny!! Sleep sapping sods..I like that!! xxx

  7. I am right there with you! I try to be honest on my blog but I am also a naturally optimistic person, so the good comes out more than the bad. In the summer if we don't have anywhere to go I definitely stay in my pajamas. I definitely do not make homemade meals every night, in fact I am in a bit of slump again when I am barely cooking again.

    1. Ah phew I'm not alone! I barely cook at present either and often feel bad about it! I'm sure we'll both get out of this slump x

  8. This is lovely. Also, I don't understand why people get dressed in the morning here, in India, we only get dressed if we are going out. If not, we stay in what we call 'home clothes'. So you'd fit in as a normal person.
    And for sharing everything else, I think you're very brave :)

    1. That's really interesting Udita thanks for sharing :) Thanks for stopping by x

  9. I put my PJ's on the minute I get home and keep them on all weekend, unless I have to go somewhere. lol

  10. This was an excellent post. I agree that blogging about all the mundane stuff or the parenting fails we all do would get boring and depressing and we'd probably just look like we were complaining. However, sometimes we give opposite impressions if we focus on the positive. How weird is that?!? I appreciate your honesty 100%. I too look like a vagabond once I get home from work and my kids sometimes eat what amounts to snack food for dinner. Bravo for your honesty!
