I don't do mornings

I think, no wait, I know, that I'm a bit stuck in my ways.

For instance, I'm not a morning person.  No matter how much I wish I could bounce out of bed at the crack of dawn, I don't think I'll be starting that habit anytime soon.

And I would love to be one of those super organised Mums that have special charts on the wall for my kids' activities and chores, what they will be having for lunch and dinner all month and a goal setting spreadsheet with little gold stars for rewards.  OK that might be going a little too far.  How about I just know what everyone is doing every week? And a walk around the Bay in the mornings.

There are several factors in my make up that prevent me being this ideal person.  For one, I'm a Pisces, known as being a bit vague and dreamy.  More are a kind of 'wing-it' kind of girl.  Secondly, in sibling order I'm the last of five which for some means irresponsibility and rebellion.  I don't fully agree of course and cannot for the life of me think why my sisters and brother think I was the favourite and spoiled silly.  Ridiculous!

Despite all this I do have the ability to parent (mostly) responsibly and have a steady and responsible job (have hardly ever been unemployed in the past thirty years!).  I've never smoked (cigarettes), I don't drink and drive, and I'm a loyal wife (so far!).

So why the hell can't I get out of bed in the mornings!

Tomorrow is the Digital Parents Conference 2013 and my room buddy Rachel (The Kids Are Alright) is coming over at 6.30am so we can catch a lift with Mr Moneymaker so I can be at Curzon Hall in time to take up my duties as one of the Door Bitches (OK, usher but that doesn't have the authority it needs!).

And of course I haven't packed (what time is it now - oh shit its 9.46pm already!).  I did achieve the Care Australia 'Walk In Her Shoes' challenge around the Bay this evening with Brenda, Grace and Jess.  Which reminds me, I better link up now with #IBOT!

Goodnight and maybe see you tomorrow - and don't forget if you'd like to help out with our challenge you can donate here.  Thankyou!


  1. I won't be there :( but hope you have an amazing time! My husband is the youngest of 5 and a Pisces as well!

  2. I didn't use to do mornings either, but with kids... not sure how you manage to get out of it. Tell me the secret! Enjoy the conference!

  3. Have a fabulous time at the conference and congrats! on the Care Australia Walk in Her Shoes Challenge - so inspiring to see so many people take part in this

  4. I don't do mornings either. Maybe if there was chocolate on offer for breakfast...

  5. I hate mornings to! Though ever since getting married I've been getting up before 8 every morning. I know, I'm crazy, and I don't even have any kids! I'm a libra but that couldn't be more like be if it tried. Have fun at the conference!!!
