A Day in the Life of Me

The alarm clock wakes me early – too early sometimes – but I’m glad it does – I must be up before anyone else. I need a quiet house (and the calming influence of the dawn chorus) in order to perfect my ‘master work-plan for the day’. I also need to pick a nice menu for supper, pack some sandwiches and a big bottle of water for Maddie’s geography trip and find that favourite little something for Charlie to take to school - just in case - (now where have I heard that before?).

At school I kiss the kids goodbye, remount my faithful bike and head back home. Home, which as I cycle towards it, is morphing magically into a place of work – an office. I’m clever you see: I make the beds, I wash up the breakfast things, and I hide away anything laundry-like, before I leave the house. I do it every morning, you know, so that by the time I return, the transformation has taken place. Wow!

This happens in a little room, which nestles neatly between the kitchen (which is, of course, on my return, no longer a kitchen but a place to refresh water pots and wash paint brushes) and the tiny courtyard (now bereft of all bikes bar mine), which has become a secret garden into which I look for inspiration and the occasional fairy.
