I wanted to call this note ‘Growing up’, but I think I’ve already done that. Yet, I’m falling short of being the wife/Home maker I need to be. I appear to have missed the lesson on how to manage everything while appearing calm and most importantly, Smiling!!
I used to be a Programme Manager for an Aerospace company, and yet even those people management and organisational skills are feeling impossible to apply in my chaos.
Today I sit on my sofa (even though I have a perfectly descent office) reflecting and questioning. I have read some wonderful blogs, and I see there photographs of their wonderful homes, perfectly baked goods, labelled laundry rooms (I don’t even have a laundry room) and I think: why doesn’t mine look like that? How do they get it all done? what is the secret?
A cynical part of me, says to myself “..It can all look good for a few moments for the photograph.” or “I can make 1 corner of my home look perfect for a photo!!“. But then I go to people’s houses and they are spotless, they have labels even on their cookie jar and they don’t have muddy dog prints on their kitchen floor from where the dogs have just traipsed in!! But then I remember, when I have visitors my house is tidy, clean, I bake, I receive lovely compliments… But I can’t maintain it!! I confess!
I am today embarking on my journey of discovery, it’s going to take a while but I will find away to sustainably manage my home, family, business, and I will share all this with you. Even my current worry that we want a baby and yet I don’t know how I am going to cope and fit them in my schedule!!
Come back soon, and remember Live Life YourDesign-YourWay, xx
