As a WAHM (work at home mum) I often get asked 'don't you just sit with the telly on all day getting nothing done?'
Firstly, I hate daytime tv, and secondly, I absolutely hate sitting around doing nothing, I just can't do it! I even find it hard to do *nothing* in the evenings, I'm always crafting, thinking about crafting or blogging about crafting!
My 4 year old goes out to nursery 5 days a week so that helps get the day off to an early start, I get home around 9.15am and begin work. (I'm so lucky that I can even fit in some exercise time too, lately I've been enjoying some pilates workouts I found free on YouTube, and through the summer I did The 30 Day Shred).
Then the day is spent invoicing, ordering supplies, planning, designing and of course SEWING!
And then I sew some more...
If my OH is working from home sometimes we even find time to pop out for a quick coffee date!
By tea time I have to pack up - as I work from the dining table. Of course this is a pain, but at the same time it also means I don't end up working past dinner time so it's not all bad ;)
I never work in the evenings, that's my time. I have many crafts to choose from so depending on my mood I'll cross stitch, do some embroidery or crochet. As for the weekends, I try not to work but if I have a lot on I'll spend a little time in the afternoons preparing fabric or doing some sewing etc. But I'd much rather be out with my family, going to the park or the beach.
This is a nearby woodland park which is just beautiful and great for a wildlife walk. Or we may go out for lunch -
The important thing is to differentiate between 'work time' and 'play time'.
Yep, this is definitely play time :)
