Kristen starts school

Kristen, two and a half, started school on Monday. My baby has grown up! After almost seven years with a child or children in tow I was really looking forward to some me time everyday.

Finally, some time to get long overdue tasks off my to-do list and maybe some time for a little bit of pampering- a weekly massage, shopping, an hour of Pilates? As it turned out, I now have barely an hour to myself in between all the chauffeuring on most days, and maybe slightly more on the days Ellie gets off school later. Even though Kristen settled really well into school. ( I left her half an hour after getting to school on the first day, without her crying), having to do the school runs meant that I probably only had enough time to do one small task off my list, in between getting the groceries and running errands.

So it definitely was wishful thinking to have imagined that I could start getting my foot back into some form of work when Kristen started school.
