I thought being mum to 3 kids who do a lot of activities was bad. Try adding in a husband who can't drive for the time being. Nightmare!!

Surgery and DIY don't mix

Jon has surgery to repair a fractured thumb yesterday. The surgery went well and he had a good nights sleep.

His thumb is in a plaster cast and it extends to his elbow.

Now, as a good wife I was more than happy to help him out with everything he needed to do. Having only one hand for at least a week was going to be challenging for him. So, cooking, cleaning, making cups of tea etc, I was totally prepared for.

However, him choosing to fix a roller blind to a wall this afternoon, with my help, I was not prepared for! I didn't sign up for this!

This evening, he admitted as he asked for the pain killers that perhaps doing DIY within 24 hours of hand surgery was not a good idea.

I didn't say I told you so. I didn't need to. We've been together so long that he knows what I am thinking. It's just that earlier today he chose to ignore me.

Oh and an aside, his cast looks like a boxing glove. It's not pink but I like pink.  :)

Busy busy

I'm not really sure where the last few weeks have gone. I am really busy with work, that is a good busy but sometimes I just don't get a minute to even think.

That has got to change. I just haven't figured out how yet.

I am in the process of starting up two more businesses as well as growing this one. I have taken on a trainer to work with me in my personal training business and am looking for another trainer to cover my area too which will free up some of my time to work on the other businesses.

The new businesses are still in the health and fitness industry. I'll write more about them later.

In addition to all that my kids are doing more and more activities outside of school which requires me to become a taxi driver more frequently.

I know this has been mentioned before and I did drop back their activities so now they only do one each, it's just that they are so good at what they do that the time required to train and practice has increased.
