Last week I posted a morning jobs chart for my kids. We had created this to get the kids back into their morning routine now we are back at school. It certainly helped the kids get back on track, but I have found myself still floundering a little with my weekday routine.
You now when you have been super busy for some time and then it is all over, it just seems hard to get going again? I think I have been suffering a little from post busy syndrome! I was so switched on to making every minute count, now I have more time I have been finding it hard to know where to start with getting things done around the house.
Last year I had a plan in my head of what I needed to do each morning as I came in from the school run and it worked really well. So much of the kid’s timetables has changed this year, the routine just doesn’t fit any more. This week I am sharing a routine I have created to help get me back on track, to act as a prompt and get me started with my tasks.
The routine is a very simplified version of what I would do in a day, it doesn’t include my gym sessions, playing, catch ups with friends etc, but just the key household tasks that I would like to achieve each day. You can download a template of the weekday routine here:
