I don't know if April really was above average. In fact, it was kind of pretty darn boring. I don't need fireworks in my life ever day. I don't need razzle dazzle all the time. But just some of the time, it would be nice to inject the everyday with some pomp. Some sparkle.
Instead May. May!! While we don't really celebrate here in the land of Aus, happy belated May Day to those who do. Break out the maracas.
For me, I'm trying to hit some kind of work/home-life balance. While I know I am lucky to be able to work from home, it's difficult to compartmentalize those sections of the day. I answer phone calls with the troops in the background. My son sometimes sits on my lap while I type. My daughter usually snoozes while I tap out some emails. But it's hard.
I'm putting out a May Day. If you're a work at home Mum, how do you make things work? Do you have a routine? Are you a multi-tasking master?
Above is a shot of the Doctor and Tiny getting into facepaints just before we were leaving to go out. I am one of those mothers who doesn't bother washing off this face 'graf' - I don't want to hinder their creativity, and being completely honest, we were in such a hurry I didn't have a chance. That stuff is hard work to remove, dang!
