A Day In The Life Of…Jakijellz

A Day In The Life Of…Jakijellz

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 Jaki from Jakijellz, Jaki is a mummy to one and has been winging motherhood since 2012, just like me!

Lets find out a what a typical day looks like for her…

06.30ish: Little Man usually wakes up and trundles along into our bedroom. He jumps in and has some snuggles before we start our day. We usually have the usual suspects of Peppa Pig and George for company (or any other irritating cartoon that’s flavour of that particular month)

07.00: Little Man and Daddy head off downstairs for breakfast and some time together before his Dad heads off to work. This is my chance to get myself in the shower and make myself human. Hair is done and make up is applied, every work day, without fail. 

08.00: Time to check everything is ready for the day. Check that Little Man’s bag is all ready with what he may need for the day depending on where he is going. Do the last final bits of tidying before leaving the house.

08.20: Get us both into the car. We usually have a sing song of Little Man’s current favourite song on the way to nursery.

08.30: Drop Little Man off at Nursery. He is there from 8.30am until 12pm. Then I head off to work – this is my time to turn the music up LOUD and relish in some child free time. To listen to what I want to at the volume I need it!

09.05: Arrive at work and park up. I have 25  minutes before I have to start work so I use this opportunity to get my phone out and link up my blog posts to the linkys that are live that day. I’ll also have a scroll through Twitter and Facebook if I get chance.

14.00-16.30: Start work. I work for a Family Law firm managing their social media and blog posts. Dependent on what day it is I schedule content for their Facebook and Twitter pages and once a week prepare and schedule a blog post and all of the promotion that goes with it. Yes, I am lucky enough to do my hobby for my job! I love it. 
13.00: Finish work. Back in the car for more loud music.

13.25: Arrive at my Mum and Dad’s who will have picked up Little Man when he finished nursery. Have some lunch (good old Mum, still looking after me!) 

14.30-15.00: Head home and spend the afternoon with the small one. Depending on what needs doing – housework, washing – all done in between playing games, and keeping Little Man entertained. 

16.00: By this time he is usually getting quite tired and so he has about half an hour screen time with the iPad, chilling out on the sofa while I get his dinner ready. 

17.00: Little Man’s dinnertime – time to tidy the kitchen, load the dishwasher, fold the washing – the usual boring stuff.

18.00: Hopefully if we’re lucky, Daddy will be arriving home, if he hasn’t been held up on the way home. He works a good thirty miles away and is on the road all day so some days he is home early and some days he is late. If he’s home on time, he will have some time with Little Man before his bathtime. 

18.30: It’s upstairs and time for a bath for the Little Man. If he’s feeling particularly tired he will opt for a shower instead, but it’s usually a bath and time for talk of his day (he never wants to tell me before!) and our hide and seek in the bubbles game. (He hides toys and we have to find them with our eyes closed!)

19.00: Bedtime for Little Man. With a bit of luck he’ll be out like a light!

19.10: Dinnertime for me and my hubby.

20.00: If it’s a blogging night I will venture upstairs and get to work, either writing posts, commenting on other posts from the linkys I joined that morning (if I’m not playing catch up!), responding to emails. Scheduling the next days tweets for blog post promotion. You know the kind of thing.

22.00: I try to stick to just a couple of hours blogging and get a couple of hours TV in if I can. Just to try and wind down.

Midnight: If I’m being sensible, I will attempt sleep, although more often than not, this can be 1am – I am so bad!

    Oh I’m so nosey! We are all so similar, yet very different in how we go about our day to days lives. But as usual us mum’s are very busy. Sarah #sharingthebloglove
