some days I am lucky and get 2 hours :)

come on PC and check forum or play games ( I count this as my lunch hour break if I get it:) ), print out stuff for kids, LJs, tidy round, get more toys out, hang washing/bring it in. I do as much as possible so I am not racing round at the end of the day:o

I always use my time productively - I come on here and see who's having a worse day than me :D

Today I really needed to sit down, so I did and came on here. It was sooo nice to sit down, I don't get chance unless I have time to eat lunch with the children or they are asleep - or I'm driving! :)

Sometimes it's just nice to grab a coffee and manage to drink all of it!

Usually it's a mad rush to get the next meal prepared or sort out an activity for the older ones.

I grab a cuppa and do my paperwork then come online. When I had my unannounced inspection I told the inspector what I did and she advised me not to go online on facebook or post anything with a time as it didn't look good that I was online :eek: I said it is only like some people watching daytime tv only when I have finished I go online. What are we meant to do sit quietly and wait
