Blogtober 2016 - Day 15


I'm just going to be brutally honest and say i have a boring life, no matter what day it is. I shall run through a typical day when Finley is at nursery (Monday, Wednesday & Friday).

8:30am - 9:30am: Finley will wake me up, he normally climbs straight into my bed for cuddles. Sometimes he will fall back to sleep, but most of the time he just wants a good cuddle in bed for half hour. It normally ends in Finley saying "Okay, downstairs now" like alright kid haha.

9:30am - 10:30am: Finley normally sit's with his milk and one biscuit of his choice whilst i catch up on one program i have missed from the night before. He hates having breakfast as soon as he wakes up, so we've changed his routine into milk and biscuit first, worked well.

10:30am - 11:30am: Time for us both to get ready for the day (get dressed and washed) and then Finley sit's down for some breakfast with the iPad (Naughty mummy i know). He either has Crumpets, Toast, Cereal or Jam Sandwiches for Breakfast/Early Lunch. Completely depends what Sir asks for or says "No mummy!" too.

11:30am - 12:45pm: We try and get out something to play with before nursery. So stuff like floor puzzles, Play Doh, Lego or just cars play. If he doesn't seem up to playing (sometimes it's a simple no and he's not interested) then we shall put some educational videos on YouTube and watch them.

12:45pm - 1:00pm: Coat & shoes on. Bag ready and walk to nursery. If we leave any later than 10 to 1 we are late, even worse when it's only a 3 minute walk. But you know the pace a 3 year old walks at so it's not easy haha.

1:00pm - 6:00pm: Finley is at nursery between these times. Most likely playing, making a mess and eating every single crumb of food they give him (something he never doe at home, typical). Whilst Finley is at nursery, I'm normally food shopping, catching up on missed programs, cleaning the house, doing a bit of blogging and mostly of all drinking tea and eating chocolate.

6:00pm - 6:15pm: Walking home from nursery. This normally ends in Finley asking to be picked up 50 times, throwing a strop and refusing to move. It's all good fun trying to pursued a tired toddler to walk all the way home.

6:00pm - 7:00pm: I'm making dinner at this time. I would love to have it earlier but with Finley at nursery so late and Daddy not finishing work till 5:30pm it's not that easy.

7:30pm - 8:30pm: We spend this time eating dinner (Finley taking much longer than me and Daddy), watching TV together and winding down before bedtime.

8:30pm - 10:00pm: I spend this amount of time every night trying to pursued Finley it's bed time. After telling him a couple of dozen of times that most children his age go to bed at 7/7:30 and that he's lucky his mummy and daddy let him stay awake later. Obviously we all know how this ends, in tears.

10:00pm - 12:00pm: I generally spend my few hours alone at night with no distraction blogging in bed where it's quite. If I'm not doing that I'm probably watching TV. I would probably stay up later than this, but i'd regret doing it. So i stick to midnight as a bedtime so i'm not super tired in the morning.

Whats your routine like? Do you have one?

  5. Very productive, your life is fulfilled in other ways even if you feel it may be 'boring' due to a routine. Maybe when he's at nursery one day a week set aside a pamper time for yourself whatever it may be. I'm always up from early like 6am, my days can vary from appointments, working etc xo

    1. I think routine definitely makes your life feel boring. We normally spend our weekends different to week days so it gives us all a break from it xxx

  9. Wow you have a very busy schedule even if it may not feel like youre up to much!

  10. Its definitely not boring. A typical day would start at 5 Am where I will promote my blog, schedule content before getting ready to leave the house at 6 Am for work. I will do a 12 hour day sometimes less or longer before either having a meeting or going home and catching up on threads and catch up on shows. I will work late into the night and it will begin all again!

  18. Such a productive day. Most days for me start at between 7 and 8. We are pretty busy most days as we go to baby and toddler groups or for walks.

  19. I do have a routine but with three year old toddlers, it can be very tricky on some days.

  20. That doesn't sound boring at all - it sounds super busy!

  21. I too drink tea/coffe and eat chocolate whilst binging on tv programmes and blogging when the eldest is at school haha!

  22. You don't have time to be bored in your very full day's schedule. I may have more downtime than you, but I fear I'm the one with the boring day. lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm self employed and every day is completely different. I bet that'll change when I have children though and need to develop a routine xxx

    ReplyDelete
  24. We have quite a strict routine really, but I think that is necessary when you have three children!

    ReplyDelete
  25. My routine is much easier, my boy is 7 so once I've got him to school it's work time until I pick him up.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love my days off when I can just potter around and do what I want but I work 13 hour shifts so most the time my day is just consumed by work, eat and sleep!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I always think my days are boring but when you write them out like this in a timeline, it makes it looks so much more hectic. Just shows how much you really do get done!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have the same routine Monday- Friday so I have the weekends to switch things up and get creative if not I would probably go bananas. If I was to write my days like this in a timeline, I would develop a migraine with all the work I fit in one day lol...

    Love reading this just helps to see I am not alone :-)

    Thanks for sharing love!!

  30. You are a busy lady, not boring at all. We wake up at 7am, leave home at 7:45pm, then back from work at around 6pm-7pm.

  31. I remember these routines well! I Try and get to bed before midnight but it doesn't always work.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't really have a routine, but I work for myself and don't have any children so although I can be busy, I can be flexible sometimes too. I always like to get up early for a shower, breakfast and to set me up for the day. x

  33. You already know my routine for the day! Mine have never been at nursery during the afternoon, and yes a 3 minute walk can usually take anything up to 30 minutes with Viggo.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Haha i loved your little naughty mummy bit for the iPad! People tell me too that I might spoil him, but that works for me and I know the limit.
    You have a really good day! I usually lounge around the house wasting time till I really need to get things done! and Then I am always rushing before the husband comes home!
