So it has got to 4 o clock and am I the only one who loves that time? It isn't early afternoon but nearer to the kids dinner time which means closer to their bed time. As though I have gone over the hump of the afternoon and am on the nice downwards slope towards my own time.
I find once it hits 4 o clock I can start the evening process. Making dinner, giving dinner at 4.30 (varies depending on location, organisational skills that particular day and how tired I am) cleaning up from dinner, playing for half an hour and then bath, bottle, bed, and.........RELAX.
There I said it, even if I do feel slightly guilty
