A glimpse into the life of a mad scientist. - Direct2Mum

A glimpse into the life of a mad scientist.

So.. well you know about me a little from my profile, or if not well im a mum, and everything that goes with that..
i got married three yrs ago and i am now the proud/tired mum of two little girls, one is 2 1/2 and a 10 months.
I also have a part time day job as a research scientist, and a part time job as an after school presenter teaching science to primary kids..
On top of this i decided to start my own business, in the hope that one day i can quit my day job and work from home, enjoying and cursing every enjoyable moment of my girls.

So lifes pretty busy...i have an aupair to help with it all, but essentially as you all know an aupair is a family memebver, so in some respects i now have an 18 year old daughter... and everyting that comes with it.. well at least it will prepare me for when the girls are older...

So i guess here is a glimpse into my life...
life as a mum is fabulous when they are good.. but lets face it most of the time they can be with a few spanners...
when im at home mon and tues mornings.. im mum full on.. we play and we learn to cruise/walk... and we colour etc..
come lunch time im in my car driving off to go to a primary school to present a fun filled science club.. and make slime...
home in time for baths.. and bed.. :)
both the girls live bath time.. and for my toddler who has got number 1s cracked struggles with number 2s.. bath time is essential... its been two week now and we have managed to stop pooing in our pants and start pooing on the toilet.. with a little protest....at least shes consistant :)

wesd-friday im a research scientist for a biosimilar company... life is busy i start a 7.30 and finish at 4.30... i miss the kids.. and im rushed off my feet.. but lets face it, its the day job, which also means a little bit of peace.. noone asking me every 5 minutes for a snack.. or to colour.. or crawling all over me.... i have adult conversation.. amazing... and yes i still see tantrums but they arent as spectacular....
best part of the day driving home...

sat and sunday are sadly not rest days anymore but either catch up days or mainly family days... hubby is off at weekends so is the few times he gets with kids. but we all know that when daddy is home yes mummy gets a lie in... but is always available to help out where necessary.. and i dont now abot you but generally its always neceassry...
last weekend we went bowling which was fun... holly devoured belles lunch?? and belle using the ramps scoured 2 strikes... she beat daddy haha...

every friday night we have the drama of where to take them so they both are stimulated and have fun....
this weekend i think its the cheshire ice cream factory.. which is a farm and play park as well as ice cream factory....

so with all of that i have to fit in the business which is hopefully helping me to quit the day job.. my aupair is helpful in that i tell her bits and bobs and she reminds me...
this evening however i have had to write a list for this weekend... and as much as i love being my own boss... sometmes i would love to just come home from work.. and just do nothing.... or watch a film...
watching couples retreat now... on the basis i have seen it before and my list is huge...

i love running my own business. www.cutchycoo.co.uk...
and hopefully within the next five yrs i will quit the day job... right now though... i feel that im wasting time sleeping...
normaly im so organised i have 2/3 of the christmas presents by now/... this yr i have one :$
suggestions are always welcome....

need ideas for a 2 1/2 yr old and a 10 mth old, who will be 1yrs jon new years day???

i think that life as a mum runnign her own busy and working is super hectic.. and the only way i seem to manage is being uber organised and ensuring everything is accounted for on the calender as well as creating lists for jobs that need doing....

i love that im starting myself off for the future.. but some days i just want to lay in bed and sleep....

i hope that by the time im 30 (next yr) i will be able to quit my da job and just be a mad scientist and run my own business.....

i love my kids... i worry i am missing out... but then im doing my best to provide for them... and show them a good work ethic....my life mission is finding the work/life balance..
