A Day In The Life Of…Kirsty Dee

I’m back with another A Day In The Life Of… It’s a chance for other bloggers to share what a typical day looks like for them. I’m proper nosey and I love to see what people get up to in their day. It’s also a great chance for you to find some more blogs that you might like to follow…

Today we have Kirsty from Kirsty Dee, a Mum of two, wife and a cat owner to Jinx.

Let’s see what a typical day looks like for her…

07.05: My alarm goes off. I’m usually awake before now as I’ve heard my hubby Tony get up and go to work. I never actually start getting sorted for the day until my alarm goes on.  I probably should, but I love that peace and quiet for 10 bliss minutes. I tip toe around trying not to wake the kids whilst I quickly get dressed and make the bed. I find if I’m ready and have my bed made before the kids wake I feel more organised and the day goes better. The kids usually wake about 7.20-7.30 and we head downstairs for breakfast. After breakfast I run around like a mad women trying to leave for the School run for 8.20am. 95% of the time it’s 8.35 and we just make it before the School gates closed. I really don’t know what happens on a morning, but we always seem to end up rushing to be out the door on time.

09.00: We are back home from dropping my daughter Peta-Summer off at School. Clark will immediately ask for a ‘treat’ and will bring me the mouse over for me to put YouTube on.  I’ll look for something he sees as a treat that isn’t too terrible for him, usually it’s some sort of cereal bar. Whilst he is happy watching other children play on YouTube and eating I’ll use this time to make a tea and try to catch up on social media and blog posts. 

10.00: Clark will now decide he wants some attention so we usually end up playing jigsaws or building a Thomas The Tank engine track
12.00: I’ll make lunch for the both of us and we’ll have a little cuddle before Clark has his sleep.

13.00: Clark will have his nap and then it’s all systems go. I have about 1.5 hours to get the house tidy, do some video editing, blog posts and social media marketing. I don’t usually ever get everything done, most days I get a bit of two of the jobs I wanted to get done. 

14.45: Clark is now awake and we get ready to walk to get Peta from School. 
15.45: Back home after the School run (unless it’s a Tuesday. Then we go to a little cafe on the way home that has a small play area where we go for a drink and a snack for a little weekly treat).  Peta will tell me about her day, whilst Clark will pull everything out her School bag looking to see if she has left anything interesting in her lunch box.  The kids will play together and by play I mean fight over what to watch on YouTube whilst I make dinner. Once dinner is ready usually around 5pm they sit together to eat and natter away. 
18.00: We’ll all tidy the living room and then my daughter will start getting ready for bed if it’s not a bath night. I’ll get Clark ready for bed. 

19.00: Clark goes to bed and my daughter will come downstairs and read her book to me for 15 minutes before heading to bed. Usually hubby is getting in about this time and will quickly go to see Clark before he falls asleep,  then he starts making dinner for us. Once the reading is finished we’ll give Peta a kiss goodnight and she now goes off and tucks herself into bed. 

19.30: We’ll have dinner and as boring as it sounds do any household chores that desperately need doing. By the evening we tend to be tired and only do what we feel needs to be done. 
20.30: Not very romantic, but if I have work to catch up on I’ll do that and hubby will usually play on his Xbox. If I’m feeling on top of things we’ll sit down and watch something together. 
23.00: A bit of reading and then off to sleep.
