I feel like a fraud.
Tomorrow I go to the awards ceremony for Blog Awards Ireland as a finalist and do I have a beautifully written post up on the blog? Nope. Oh I have plans, and dozens of half written drafts. But it's not going to happen. So I'm going to bore you with the reasons why instead...
Today I will...
...Cook, clean and care.
...Find out if my bank account has been hacked. Can three problems in one day be a coincidence?
...Sort out the socket that is now hanging off the wall. Is this dangerous? I don't even know.
...Buy some strong painkillers for my back.
...Do one of the supermarket shops.
...Take Smiley for a hospital appointment.
...Meet with my son's service providers.
...Straighten my hair so I don't frighten the public.
...Organise a present for a friend of mine.
...Check out the other posts in the BritMums political round-up.
...Clean out my nice empty bin so those pesky maggots don't come back.
And these are the things that won't get done...
...Write the post that I promised to do in support of the #OneMums charity trip to Ethiopia.
... Apply for rebates on medical and travel expenses.
...Get multiple copies of the private reports I had to get done for my son as only one has been provided by the State. And that was two years ago.
...Do my back exercises.
...Repair the cracks in the firebox so I can light a fire.
...Finish filling in the cracks in the inside window frame upstairs.
...Find out about archery lessons for my son. Narnia and The Hunger Games have a lot to answer for.
...Start organising Smiley's Sweet Sixteen. Well I've done the poster at least.
...Remove the new toilet seat from it's packaging and fit it. A week is too long for it to be sitting in the hall.
...Bleed the radiators and find out how to do it again.
...Order new driving licence.
...Fix the wonky blind in the attic.
And that's just today
PS I'm writing this while eating my breakfast, supervising Smiley, holding for the bank, and speaking calmly to my son. ..
