8 signs you might be having an off week

1. Your normally sound sleeping child stops sleeping through and decides that 3am is the new time to wake up. (the winter lurgies are currently paying our house a visit so poor A is all congested and just wants cuddles at night. I'm more than happy to do this but am praying we all get some more sleep soon...)

2. The woman in the bakery points out that you have done your three tog coat up all wrong. Fashion fail.

3. When trying to make a healthy smoothie the milk pours out the bottom of your blender and covers your kitchen floor. 

4. You forget the online shop and end up popping to the supermarket four times in one week not knowing what to buy when you get there. You only know there is not enough food in the fridge and you have run out of Ella's pouches and finger foods and milk and oh, anything you want for lunch.

5. You end up buying lots of chocolate.

6. After planning a nice meal out for your wedding anniversary months in advance,  lining up babysitters, getting your nails done and planning an outfit - you have to cancel due to sheer exhaustion and the knowledge you won't enjoy it as you will likely fall asleep in your starter. Plus you end up awake at 2am anyway so it was probably a good thing you didn't splash out on some champers.  Maybe next year...

7. You eat more chocolate.

8. You don't get to write any blog posts or articles as you don't have the time or energy. This equals a super crabby mummy.

So now it's the beginning of a new week, and indeed a new month, so here's hoping the germs will leave our home and we can start to get into the festive spirit. And that I can do my coat up properly upon leaving the house...

  1. Ah, I can relate to all of this! I hope that you are all germ free this week and getting more sleep :) #sharewithme

  2. Have you been spying on me? This is me every week every month at the moment. I swear I can't keep anything straight or do anything without spilling, tripping or forgetting all together. Hope you are getting more sleep this week. We have all been full of it too it's horrible. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me. Happy Holidays #sharewithme

  3. I definitely recognise ALL of these (but maybe replace chocolate with red wine!) - my motto is bed early and it'll all be better in the morning! We're getting a shed load of night-time visits at the mo too. Such a killer but it's part of the territory and a sleep cuddle can still be lovely, but like you say, I would kinda prefer a full night's sleep ;)

    Hope you've had a good week and thanks for linking up to #theList xxx
