If I was still volunteering, I would be giving myself a ‘mental health day’ off today.
As I now work for money, instead of the above I am giving myself a shower, a big breakfast and a stern talking to.
This week, balancing work and home life has fallen apart and everything feels impossibly tricky.
If you know a single working parent who appears to have it all together, be kind to them today. Just in case, like me, they’re secretly floundering a bit.
I know this is totally normal. By next week I’ll probably feel on top of things again for a while. I’m holding out for the Easter holidays to catch up on the admin and phone calls I’m too mentally exhausted and busy to achieve when I get home from work each day.
But today, this is my blog and I’m telling it like it is. And this week, how it is feels almost impossible!
