A Day In My Life

I post a lot about the things that are going on in my life. But it occurred to me that I haven’t really written about what I actually do in a day. I then thought “what do I actually do all day?”. So, I thought I would write this post to let you all know what I do on an average day, and so I can see if I am using my time wisely (eek!).

I am usually up at about 7.40 in the morning. I am lucky that my kids are old enough to get themselves dressed and ready for school/college. They even sort their own breakfast. I use this time to quickly check emails etc while shoving cereal and tea into me at the same time.

Then I quickly get dressed and take Ben Bob to college about 8.10. Booey walks to school with a group of friends. I usually get home between 8.40 and 8.55 depending on traffic.

Most days I will then make a start on the housework. Other days I will pop to the cafe to meets friends or I will go on my own and take my tablet and do some blog commenting while I have a tea. Then I come home to the housework.

While I am cleaning I will have videos playing on the Swagbucks website. I use this site to earn Amazon gift cards (my post how I earn gift cards online explains this more.). To me, doing this while I am doing something else is a good use of my time.

I will pop on and off Twitter during this time. Social media is my downfall, I lose so much time there! If I haven’t scheduled posts to share I will do this as well.

Around 12, I will sit down at the laptop and join any linky’s I am part of and start the commenting. I usually make lunch and eat it at my desk while doing this. My emails get checked again at this time too.

I will spend the next couple of hours doing this. I will also write posts now if I have the time. Also checking social media too (told you, it vacuums my time!).

If I have blog photos to take I will do these in the afternoon. If the light is bad I now have some lights and a little light tent to help with this. I am still getting used to using them, they are amazing!

Booey usually gets home around 3.20. This does depend on how much her and her friends are chatting. Ben Bob gets home just after 4. The next couple of hours is taken up by me asking them to do things like put their washing out, making dinner and eating.

Some evenings we go to the gym. So we have dinner at about 7. We all love going to the gym. I love that we can all go, it means I don’t lose time with the kids.

If we haven’t been to the gym after dinner is bath and pj’s time. I cannot tell you how much I love this time of day!

My evening is spent writing posts, editing videos and comping. I do this at my desk while hubby and I are watching tv. Again I also get sucked into social media at points during the evening, opps!

That is an average day in my life. Not particularly exciting, but I get stuff done. I also see how much time I am wasting on social media, I need to be more productive at times.

How do you spend your day?

Take care everyone.
