Welcome to my life!
I felt like something different today, so today’s post is my normal day-to-day holiday life! Let’s take a day like today. Here goes!
I get woken up at an outrageous time (this morning 4ish) by Briar running through the house madly because she ‘needs to get to Mum’s room’ at that time. I get back to sleep and woken again at 4:40 by Tara flushing to toilet beside my head and running through the house to Mum’s room! I then go back to sleep for a little while and wake up about 6 when the sun decides to stream through the curtains and wake me up fully. Still lying in bed because it’s warm I proceed to read until about 7 when I get up, do my hair, get dressed and go running. This morning’s run was 4km. After running and cooling down I get back into the house about 7:30-40 and get changed out of my running gear. I then have a super-fast breakfast and about 8 get the lambs milks ready, bearing in mind I’m going to be feeding them all by myself because everyone else is still lying in bed, mostly awake! I feed all the lambs (using a lamb feeder, thank goodness!), move Cleo down the drive and feed her – A.K.A. put a bucket in front of her and run! – and feed the rabbits. When I’m finished it’s about 9:30 and I get in, shout to the girls that their lambs need feeding and shower quickly.
By the time I’m out of the shower and re-dressed for the 3rd time everyone else is up and making themselves breakfast. This is a crazy time, this morning with the girls playing hop-scotch in the dining room, Mum playing music, Dad attempting to listen to the radio and me, well, me just attempting to get permission to check my blog. At this point I am told that my room has to be tidy and so I go in and shove balls of wool into boxes and pens into pots to make it look half-reasonable. Then I check my blog and get told I have to move the wheelbarrow, which I really should do!
When I’m finished on my blog I usually go write for about half an hour and then move the wheelbarrow! Now it’s about 11:30 and I usually do these stretches I’ve got for muscles and my pronating feet (look it up!) for 15 or so minutes. Then I draw or crochet or something until lunch.
After lunch I go see Cleo for an hour-ish and feed Raisin and Socks (Sultana died this morning of some unknown, yet very deadly disease :(), check the rabbits again and do other stuff I need to with the animals before coming back inside. I do something for a while in my room, usually something that messes it up and causes me to (once again) tidy it up before Dad or the girls asks me to do a job or play with them.
Around 3:30 I go and take photos of random things that look good (I have a photo dump waiting!), my sisters or animals depending on the weather. Around this time I’ll also have a snack or something to keep my stomach entertained! Then there’s the next lot of animal feeding that stars around 4:45. It goes on until about 6 in the evening because, well, I don’t actually know, it’s just an awful lot more chaotic then!
Then we have dinner, usually something nice that Dad’s made, do evening stuff and then I fall into bed at about 8:30-9:00. However, this is not when I get to sleep because I struggle to get to sleep and lie in bed with everything from the day going tick-tick-tick, whizz-whizz-whizz around in my head.
The next morning I get up and repeat!
So that’s my life! Did you like it? Do you want more posts like this?
