A typical day

Blog Every Day in November Challenge

Here is a typical week day for me.

Alarm goes off at 6.20.  Hit snooze, hopefully once, probably twice. Get up, feed animals and make cup of fruit tea.  Shower, then get dressed and get a home made clementine and poppyseed muffin and fruit for breakfast.  Eat as I put my make up on.

I finish getting ready and wake Megan up..  My mum comes over to get her ready for school so that I can leave at 8.15 for work.

Arrive at the museum and at 9.30, hit the 'on' switch on the kettle and have a morning meeting.  This morning we have a conference going on and I am in the galleries.  I manage to get some research done as it is not too busy.

About 1.30 I meet my friend Tyler and we head to my favourite coffee shop, for a tea and gluten free cupcake.

About 2.30 I walk in the beautiful sun to the university library to do some historical research for the museum.  I am currently looking at Cardiff's sporting history.

After picking up some shopping for dinner, I pick Megan up from her school choir practise about 4.30.    The school bunny, Nibbles, is hopping around the grounds so we of course stop for a while to fuss him!

We popped over to my sisters house for an hour so that Megan could play outside with my nephew so I didn't prepare dinner until about 6.30.  I decided on a healthy paella after only scoffing a cupcake for lunch.

After getting Megan to bed around 8.30, I read a few blog posts and wrote a new post.

I then sorted some dishes, prepared school uniform and lunches for Friday, before making a cup of fruit tea and relaxing in a hot bubble bath.  My joints and back were really starting to hurt and I called a friend for a chat. 

I didn't get to bed until around 11pm, by the time I'd checked on Megan, let the cat in and taken my tablets.  It was another busy week day, which probably explains why I am so sore today!

I'm looking forward to reading about your day!


  1. I feel you in the multiple hitting of the snooze button! After ten years of 6.20am starts, my first reaction is still, "you've got to be kidding me?!"

  2. A busy but interesting day! You fit loads in! How cute is that bunny?
