The Christmas season is lots of fun but I get really stressed out with all the different Christmas shows.
Last night we had Christmas Carrols and a BBQ tea at the school. On Thursday night we have a Scout Christmas party out our house.
Because we went out last night no one did any of their evening jobs. It was also difficult to get the children out of bed this morning. Most mornings I try to get up around 5.30 to pray and go on the internet before the children get up. I haven't been doing that much since I came back from Adelaide with Tom becuase I have been up through the night checking his sugars. Now I only need to get up at midnight so I started getting up early on Sunday morning again. I wasn't able to get out of bed early this morning either.
So the housework is behind and the house looks like no one has done any work for a month. I was going to go over to the school at lunch time for a shared lunch but I have decided to give it a miss and get things done here.
I really need to look at my mothers rule and work out how to fit extra things in and keep up with the housework. Those of you that have a mothers rule, how do you cope with the extra activities at this time of year?
