I have just finished the most ridiculous mammoth run of work, I have just worked 48 days straight - that's 7 days a week with 12+ hour days. To say I am exhausted would be an understatement - NEVER AGAIN!
A couple of weeks ago my husband told me that his brother wanted to pop up and stay for a weekend in January, but the weekend he had suggested clashed with my daughter's birthday plans - so I said: "He can't come that weekend, it clashes with Sarah's birthday and we promised she could have a sleepover with her friends, Sarah will be really disappointed if we change our plans now."
My husband was looking at me a bit strangely so I asked "Do you disagree, do you think we should invite your brother that weekend anyway?"
My husband replies "No, I completely agree with you.....it's just that our daughter is called Rebecca!"
When you start to forget the names of your children you really have the whole work-life balance thing completely out of whack.
I know it is a bit early for New Year's resolutions but, for the sake of my family, my health and my sanity, my promise for 2014 is to really work on getting that work-life balance back again. I know it is going to be easier said than done, so wish me luck!
