Word of the Week – Unorganised

To say that I am ‘all over the place’ would perfectly sum me up this week, but that is four words, so doesn’t really work for word of the week, so I have instead chosen…

I just can’t seem to get myself together this week. My brain is mush, I’m so unorganised it’s not even funny. I’m. Or the most organised of people anyway, but I keep a diary and to do lists, and I generally get by without hiccup but not this week.

I honestly don’t know if I’m coming or going!

As I write this it’s almost midnight, and only a few moments ago have I stuffed the kids dirty uniform in to the washing machine to be washed in time for tomorrow, despite the kids having been home for 8 hours. Most mornings this week I have been desperately throwing together some sort of lunch for Caitlin, about 5 minutes before the school bus is due. I’ve been running in to work ten minutes late after leaving stuff I needed at the house and having to return… And the list goes on.

Not sure what’s going on with me, but I just can’t seem to get myself focussed on anything that actually needs to be done.

I have given myself quite a lot to do this weekend, so I’m going to have to schedule it, down to the last detail, and hope my brain can function for long enough before it shuts down completely!

If someone would like to come and be my personal planner for a while to sort me out that would be great…

    Wouldn't it be amazing to have a PA sort all you stuff out!? I'd love that… we all have days/weeks like these, where you feel like you are running on empty and can't quite get it together. Hopefully Monday will be a fresh and organised start! x

    I'm totally in the same boat. Is it that time of year or is it just being a mum? If you ever find out the answer please let me know x
