7:00-7:30am // My alarm goes off at 7am and I hit the snooze button a few too many times. I am not a morning person at all so it takes me a while to wake up and get with it! I normally check my social media and emails on my phone round 7:20am before getting up and heading down the stairs. Most of the time Sienna is already awake so I get her on the way down.. Occasionally she is still asleep and I'll leave her.
7:30-8:00am // First things first once we are down.. Sienna wants her milk and I
want need my coffee.
We have recently added the iKettle to our gadget collection and I think it's the best one yet; a genius idea for us busy parents who love our hot drinks. It works by using WiFi to connect via a smart device and so you can boil the kettle from your phone, no need to physically go and put the kettle on.. how fab! It even has an option to change the temperature it heats too which is specific to what drink you want to make; for example, my favourite black coffee only needs to heat to 95 degrees. Apparently you can save up to 2 days a year using this as it makes the everyday task of putting the kettle on quicker.. that's definitely my kind of gadget! ;)
8:00-9:00am // Once we have our drinks, Sienna normally snuggles on the sofa with hers and the TV while I unload or load the dishwasher.. Whichever needs doing! I will also try and start Warren's packed lunch for the day if I have time. Sienna will then usually bring me her cup when she has finished and ask for 'breakshust' so after finishing the chores and my coffee, I get started on breakfast. We tend to eat between 8am and 8:30am, Warren normally comes down while we are eating to say goodbye and heads out to work for the day!
9:00-10:30am // After breakfast about 9am, we get all cleaned up and Sienna will normally go back in the sitting room and play while I finish a few more chores like putting the washing on and getting meat out the freezer to defrost for dinner. Once I'm finished, we'll normally go upstairs to get dressed, clean our teeth and decide what we're going to do that day! We tend to be ready by now and then if we are going out, head out or if we are staying in, go back down and play or do some crafts; whatever we have planned!
