I have been off work for 6 weeks, during the holidays, I found cleaning and general tasks a doddle, I got in to a really good routine and the house was always tidy. I made lovely meals for dinner.
Week 1 back in work and I am exhausted, the house is a mess again, the washing has piled up, I am struggling to get the dinner on the table for a reasonable time.
So how do you manage a work life balance? Being a working parent is hard work, when you get home from a long day at work, its hard enough sorting yourself out without worrying about home work, dinner, bath time, bedtime stories, uniforms on top of cooking, washing, cleaning and making lunches by this point its 10pm and the house is still not tidy tidy but you are now ready for bed.
