In the very long list of things I have ever been wrong about, the ease of being a work at home mother comes top of my list. I honestly thought it would be ideal to squeeze in work around my family, cooking, cleaning, organising the car repairs, doing the laundry, the school run, the playgroups, the nappy changes, the bill paying. The best of both worlds.
My goodness, I was so wrong. It is, quite simply, relentless. There is never enough hours in the day for all of it. And the less I say about the constant interuptions, the better. It IS good, but it is not easy.
Except sometimes, just sometimes. All of us happily going about our businesses. Both babies napping at the same time. Getting everything on my list and more done?
