Where’s the pause button please?

It’s been TWO weeks since I blogged. Where on earth has that gone?  It’s not that I’ve got nothing to say, not at all, almost daily I think ‘ooh, I could do a post about…’, and I’ve actually even taken to geekishly scribbling ideas down sometimes (s’what proper writers do, apparently), it’s just that I simply haven’t had time to sit at the laptop long enough or with enough brain power to actually formulate thoughts and sentences.  Even my beloved twitter has been neglected – that my friends, is the sign of a busy mummy!

And I shouldn’t complain, because aside from a few really gruesome teething days, it’s generally good stuff keeping me busy ( like my shiney new Xplory!! {whole ‘nother post in the making}, Christmassy planning, lots of coffee dates, a couple of nights out with the daddy, meeting up with Bec & Kelly & their boys for festive fun, putting up the Christmas tree today… allsorts of goodies), but the last couple of weeks really have left me feeling like I need a time out. A day or two to myself to just chill out & catch up with the seven million and three things that need my attention. And before you all shout Duh! You’re a mum now, never gonna happen! I do know it’s not – but wouldn’t it be nice if life did come with a pause button?

Everything could just stop. Just for a while. Long enough to drink a hot cup of tea without having to change a nappy, or dispense teething aids, or run interference between increasingly mobile baby & dog bowl. Just enough time to actually cross a few things off the perpetual to-do list and remember that smug feeling of accomplishment.  Wouldn’t that be brilliant?

But of course, in real life, we just have to keep going.  And going. And I know this all sounds a bit whiney, and it really wasn’t supposed to, but I guess it’s the sleep deprived tiredness taking it’s toll, and the niggly stupid cold/cough deelie that’s been bugging me for far too long now. I just feel all a bit run down and overwhelmed. I’ve lost my neurotic mojo. I’m disorganised & nowhere near on top of things. And I don’t like it.

Still, tomorrow is a whole new week. We’re officially counting down to Christmas. I can get back on top of my game, and damn it, I will!  Because I am a mummy, and that is what mummys do. 

Bring it on.
