Life is so exhausting just being an adult with work and everything and then comes along motherhood and the love for your children becomes your motivation and gives you the energy to go on even if you have not had sleep or proper sleep for a long time it is amazing. Sometimes I wonder though do we make life more exhausting for ourselves once our children begin to grow.

With three children 9,7,21/2, working full time partly from home, leaving half an hour from town with a husband who is a farmer and is not around to help me with pretty much anything (he does provide the fire word and love), therefore everything from shopping, cooking, cleaning, washing ironing, hair, bathing, getting them ready, lunches, bills, banking, BAS and doing the tax, sports games and training, horse riding lessons in another town from were they go to school, tudoring, play dates and birthday party’s.

Monday becomes Sunday night in a matter of seconds!

I don’t have any family or friends who help me out and I so wish for a genie to pop up and whisk me away for a day spa.

Trying to be the best mum and even wife, daughter, aunty etc is exhausting and I have decided the harder I try to please everyone, the more everyone expects from you and I really need to start and be selfish and squeeze in some me time before I have a melt down!!!!

Genie save me!!!!!
