Work/life balance

Category: Generalfootlight @ 13:40

Trying a new method of using my lesson plans which does NOT involve working for half the weekend. Instead, last Saturday, I was able to have a lie-in, make a leisurely breakfast and prepare the evening meal well ahead, whilst Hubby and Daughter were doing the big grocery shop. I had some down time and a relaxing evening in front of the box.

In the morning, after a delicious breakfast of asparagus omelette (provided by Hubby) and fresh bread (provided by the machine), Daughter turned into my personal shopper – again – and we went to M&S to spend the Christmas vouchers from my class. Leisurely lunch on our return – at lunchtime! – and more chilling out. Now at the tail end of cooking for tonight (spaghetti bolognaise for them, chicken for me), whilst Daughter makes the vegetable curry for tomorrow’s dinner … and several more meals, I suspect!

We’ve started, again, planning a menu and it makes such a difference. We know all week what we are going to have and who will be cooking it, which helps to distribute the load, as we all work.

I returned to work on the Monday refreshed and ready to make a difference!

Happened again this week. Looking good!
