Last week ended in some chaos and after a calm weekend away, I was determind to start the new week well. Today was a good example of how my new idea of compartmentalising works when I put it into practice.
I managed to keep a calm toddler, cook a meal that will last more than one day (and some for the freezer!) and get some housework done.
It has meant that I have had to forego time on my laptop and ignore it calling out to me all day. What I feel tonight though is a great satisfaction that I was a good parent today and that is, after all, my primary job. I did also manage to have time to do some of my own stuff as well as a little time for some mind-numbing telly too.
