I’m back with another A Day In The Life Of… It’s a chance for other bloggers to share what a typical day looks like for them. I’m proper nosey and I love to see what people get up to in their day. It’s also a great chance for you to find some more blogs that you might like to follow.
Today we have Deborah from Hello Deborah, a mummy to her gorgeous baby girl and lives in the countryside of Hampshire.
Here is what a typical day looks like for Deborah:
05:00-07:00: Wake up time! We aren’t naturally early risers but now we have a baby we’re getting used to seeing the sun rise. We used to be woken to a crying baby wanting a feed but I’m now woken up to the sound of her sucking her thumb wide awake waiting for us to wake up and play.
08.30: It’s time to try and get Eleanor down for a nap so I can have a cup of tea and either catch up on YouTube or read a book. I’ve opted for my kindle lately as it syncs with my phone which is always within reach.
10:30: Around this time we’re heading out the door for a baby group filled with baby sensory, singing (badly), jigging and chatting to mums. I don’t know what I’d do without either meeting the girls for a cuppa and cake or going to a class.
12:00: Bubba’s nap time again. Sometimes I manage to get her down in her bed but other times it involves me pacing around the house shushing until she’s fallen asleep and I can sit down in front of the telly.
13:00: If we’re in town I’ll meet my husband for lunch in a cafe so I can have a hot cup of tea while he looks after Eleanor. And have a yummy panini and some cake if I can get away with it.
15:30: Third and hopefully final nap of the day. If the weather is nice then I often put her in the pram and go for a walk around our local park. She usually falls straight asleep as we step out the front door.
18:00: My husband is home so I get to slip into a really hot bath with a good playlist on Spotify and a book to read. I get a little alone time before I’m joined by Eleanor once the water is cooled down for her. I love our bath times together as we practise a few of the things she learns in swimming.
19:00: Time for a bit of baby massage and reading That’s Not My… for the umpteenth time before handing Eleanor over to daddy for a bottle and then bed.
20:00: After sterilising all the baby equipment I then get on with cooking dinner. I feel bad that it’s usually a pizza or something I can throw in the oven at the moment, but it saves me time and effort when I’m counting down the minutes until I can hit the hay. Plus it won’t be long before I’ll be cooking for the three of us so I’m making the most of unhealthy ready meals.
21:00: Catching up on some television, at the moment it’s the latest season of NCIS. Anyone else addicted to American shows like this?
22:00: Oh I am so ready to sneak into bed. Eleanor is still in our bedroom so every evening we try to be as quiet as possible while usually have a giggle fit!
