When the neon signs collide! If ‘Fun this way’ means in bed for 10pm on a Friday night with a book, then head over to my house! The ‘Zzz’ sign is much more fitting for this evening. 🙌😴 Wishing everyone a good nights kip and anytime after 6am lie in #goodnight #knuckingfackered #tired #parent #parenthood #upallhours

GOALS: January, it seems, everyone has something they want to achieve. “This is the year I’m going to .....” “Change the world” “Finally get my head around Brexit” “Get fit” “Get hitched” “Get knocked up” Want to know what I’m going to do this year? Get a bloody lock on the bathroom door, that’s all. It’s not world changing but it will be life changing...........for me!!! I JUST WANT TO PEE IN PEACE, IT HAS BEEN 9 YEARS SURELY I AM DUE SOME QUIET TIME! #upallhours #parenting #peeinpeace #toddler #barhroomgoals

SUNDAY MORNING = extra early wake up. Obviously. And on the morning after I broke my Dry January! 🍷🥃😬 The ultimate punishment. So I’ve been doing this since 5.25am. I’ve snoozed through Jack and the Beanstalk and now he’s just starting Hotel Transylvania 3. Good morning team. Anyone else up at stupid o’clock?! #morning #sunday #sundaymorning #knuckingfackered #tired #sleep #earlyriser #parent #parenting #parenthood #upallhours

WHEN WORK over runs & takes over your Friday evening 🤨 Perks to this however mean I get to get a take out dinner. This will be the first time in months that I haven’t been home for Barney’s bedtime. Made me realise that me & him have had a great stint! Not overdoing it with work & travel has been nice. Makes you realise the balance is important. I love working. And I love Barney bedtime. Anyway....I’m thinking Curry. #reallife #bedtime #workingmum #workingparent #fridaynight #mother #parenthood #upallhours

Safe to say that 10 minutes of mediation a day, I swore I would do back in 2016, still isn’t making it into the daily routine. 🙄 Still, there’s always 2020! . . How are the resolutions going peeps? . . This should be a wine Wednesday post but we are both still dry as a bloody bone! God only knows why. How is it only the 9th!!!! 😩 . #newyears #newyearresolutions #reallife #parenting #parent #upallhours

NEVER MISS A MONDAY. Sometimes the key to ensuring you exercise is to wear all the active wear from the get go. Barney asked me at 6am this morning if I was off to the gym. I wasn’t but I thought if I just get straight into it (Working from home today!), it will spur me on to go later. Still haven’t been. But I will!! 👊🏻 Also because loads of you making sure you don’t miss a Monday so I won’t either. #nevermissamonday #exercise #healthy #monday #whatiworetoday #activewear #upallhours

DATE NIGHT with my little man, Hotel Transylvania 3 and a wine glass full of lime cordial & water. Can you tell it’s January?! On that note, Concerning this dry January lark, I am only taking part until 14th January! I have a work event that requires drinking then, so as a token effort & in solidarity with Aly, I’m doing the first two weeks. Just getting that out there now! 👊🏻😉 #datenight #myboy #parenting #reallife #parenthood #rockandroll #dryjan #upallhours

FRI- YAY! : Friday bath time is officially the start of the weekend and I bloody love it! Finally get to see the kids, get the PJ’s on and a glass of wine down my neck.......but not this week as I am doing dry January 😭. Why? Because I am a control freak and so want to prove I can actually do it! Luckily I have the mind bending fear - fest that is Luther to keep me occupied tonight on catch up!! I watched the first episode from behind a cushion, reading a magazine, while scrolling through Instagram for distraction and still shat myself! Is anyone else watching? Have a good one all xx #upallhours #parenting #bathtime #dryjanuary #dryjanuary2019 #lutherseason5

NEW YEAR REFLECTIONS. Been seeing a lot of posts concerning reflecting on 2018 & motivating towards 2019 on the gram the last couple of days. Felt we needed to find a suitable photo to post for a first pic of 2019. So here is Barney, errr, reflecting. Sort of. (More moaning that he was cold whist staring into the water) but the arrow suggests ‘moving forward’ & all that jazz that’s always popular in the new year. It was either this or a quote & Aly hates it when I post Gandhi style quotes. (I love them by the way!) Anyway, how are the first couple of days treating you? Got to be honest, I’m wishing he was back to school this week. Feel we all need a bit of routine back in our lives! He doesn’t go back until Tuesday!!! 😬 #newyear #2019 #positivepost #reallife #stilloffschool #parenting #upallhours

THE BIT IN BETWEEN Christmas and New Year. Hungover, full, living in PJ’s or active wear, unsure what day it is and long discussions of the New Year fitness regime. But for now we’ll enjoy our two course breakfast of Panettone & bacon sarnies. #reallife #winning #christmas #newyear #boxingday #parents #hungover #upallhours
