I think it would be fair to say that life has changed somewhat since the arrival of the first of our three daughters eight and a half years ago.
I would be telling a rather large fib if I said I have coped well with the disruption and chaos that reigns with having three children so close together (yes we ticked the box of 3 kids under 4).
Anyway I have to work very hard to take time out for myself together with balancing work and family time.
‘Me time’ for me includes road cycling & walking the dog together with what really is my last bastion of peace within the family unit, namely ‘Toilet Time’.
For me ‘Toilet Time’ is one of the last bastions of peace….well kind of….
Honestly, if it’s not my girls clambering all over me then it’s the pooch making a nuisance of herself with a sit down protest!!!
I know I hear you say…just lock the door.
I’ve tried that and it just ends up with the door being banged on until it’s creaking at the hinges so it’s just easier to keep unlocked and repel the insurgents!!!
