Week 10 A Day in the Life

Happy Monday

Hello and welcome back to the 52 Week Blogger Challenge post

I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to attack this week with a bang,   This is week’s topic focuses on what is my typical day – what do I keep myself busy with or what keeps me busy.. truly reverting stuff.
2016 is the year to improve in the blogging world, so I ma taking part in the 52 Week Blogging Challenge - Week 10- A Day in the life - A look at the day in the life of a busy working mom and wife, juggling her career, family,studies and blogging

Shew I was a bit exhausted after writing down my day, but it was an eye opener in terms of why I am so exhausted most of the time and it prompted me to think differently about how I structure my work day.  Some prioritisation is now in order.

My Typical Day

Below is a  typical day in my life on a week day.  I work full time away from home, so most of the day is spent solving problems, discussing issues and risks with my team and driving delivery.

06:00 Wake and play with TheSpare (He still sleeps with us)

06:30 Bath, get dressed

07:00 Grab a cup of coffee and leave the house and drive to the Gautrain station

07:00 park at the Gautrain station, run for the train to Sandton

07:30 Board a shuttle to the office or walk to the office

07:40 Arrive at the office, unpack my bag and setup my laptop

07:45 Check my diary, updating my to-do list, prepare for first meeting

08:00 – 16:30 Back to back meetings, lots of coffee and water

16:30 Get back to my desk , nibble on my lunch while answering emails, Work on Projects at hand, update presentations, follow up on issues

18:00 Shut down laptop, Run to the bus stop, catch the bus at 18:10

18:20 Get to train station, wait for train, get back to home station get into the car and drive home

19:00 Arrive home, play with the kids, check homework, eat supper

20:00 Eldest goes to bed, Prayers and lots of goodnight kisses and hugs

21:00 Put the youngest child down lie next to him until he sleeps

21:30 Get up pack my bag for the next day, have a conversation with the husband while drinking tea, jot down To Do list for the next day, Take our clothes for tomorrow

22:30 Check social media for the blog and read a chapter of my book

23:00 Turn of the lights and try and fall asleep

On the weekends my day is spent with family, catching up and planning blogging and spiritual activities.

What about you?

What is your typical day like??  Is your day filled with things that actually excite and make you excited?

    I once participated in a life-in-a-day photo challenge. It was so much fun, you might enjoy sharing something like that with your blog followers. Its a bit of work to take all the photos and then to edit and upload them, but I found it really interesting.

    Well done you and a big pat on the back, you certainly pack it all in! You’ve inspired me to do the same thing and write down my actual day, tomorrows monday and back to work (well, the paid one) after a weekend of running around after 2 boys, which as you know is an exciting challenge!! I’m going to give it a go and see what it looks like:)
    Thanks for sharing your post:)

    You sound mega busy like me! I’ve just done a post similar, and when I wrote what I do in my working day down, it felt exhausting just reading it! But you just get on with it because you have too. I find in interesting to read what others get up to in their day to day lives x #KCACOLS

    Wow! What a day! Do you work 5 days like this?
    You are a superstar, I often wonder how Mums that work full time fit things like washing etc in.

    Oh this is a brilliant challenge, one of my biggest issues is not posting regularly (mainly through self doubt and lack of ideas. Which I suspect is tied up with the self doubt) this could be a great one to join in!

    That sounds like a really busy day to me, and will pretty much reflect my day when I return to work at the end of June. Your job sounds just like my job, and not being able to eat lunch until 4.30 with the entire day spent in meetings. Thanks for sharing this, I liked reading it as a guide as to how I’m going to structure my days later this year. Hope you’re having a good Monday. Claire #KCACOLS

    Blimey! That’s a full on day for sure!! I was moaning on to someone today about my own days and how I don’t want to commute when the office relocates, but maybe I don’t have it that bad and should just keep quiet!! Love this 52 week blogger challenge! What a fab idea! Do many people link up or join in with it??? I might have to investigate further! Thanks so much for linking up with #SundayStars. Steph xxxx

    Gosh, you sound like you have a hugely busy day. With lots of travelling to and from work. And your work day sounds really busy. But you also seem really organised and that is brilliant. I wish I was as organised as you are. Thanks so much for linking up to #SundaysStars. Hugs Lucy xxxx

    Wow you really have a very busy day! You literally don’t stop going from one place to another one. My days are completely different but I’m a SAHM so I have the little one with me all morning. She then goes to nursery and I have a few hours to do some blogging or deal with the house and then I have to go out and get my other daughter from school. Not very exciting but I ended up knackered by the end of the day!! lol Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. I would love to see you again on Sunday! 🙂 x
