The mess…. so much mess! All the time….

There are 5 of us

We collectively weigh 220kgs

We live in 7m by 2.8m indoors and 7m by 3.5m outdoors (with no heating outside and no hot water Inside)

We are together 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and have been since the 5th of July.

Most days it is magical in many ways,

Most days there are smiles and laughter.

Most days the girls want to learn and enjoy lessons

Most days

But not every day!

Some days are really hard

Some days everyone gets in each other’s nerves

Some days everyone wants and needs alone time

And some days the mess is just UNBEARABLE

Preparing for cooking for 5 on a workspace 6 inches by 18 inches seems IMPOSSIBLE

Keeping the toys for her children under seven in some sort of order feels IMPROBABLE

Staying sane when there is not any chance to finish a thought or a sentence without being interrupted TWENTY times just can’t happen!

No washing machine

No tumble dryer

No dishwasher

No shower indoors

Construct our bed every night before going to bed….

Awake at 5:30am, everyone as there is nowhere to hide

Today, is a hard day, a stressful day, a day if feeling overwhelmed

Tomorrow is another day!

One thought on “The mess…. so much mess! All the time….

  1. Enjoy The Mess Kate……when everywhere is tidy and quiet….and the children have gone…….the silence is deafening. X
