My Word of the Week 9/05/2015

Time

Another week has been and gone, where does time go? A week ago I was only starting to plan out my posts for the next few weeks as I’m taking up the blogging everyday in May challenge #BEDM. Now we are nine days into May and I have kept up with my challenge so far….. I am sure as you get older that there is some kind of time hole and that as soon as you hit a certain age its speeds up. So as you can gather by now that my word of the week is time.

I am finding that I don’t have enough hours in the day to achieve what I want to do. Time is so short. 

A typical Saturday for me is to get up at 4:45am get showered and changed ready for work by 5:30 the latest. Then drive 12 miles to work to be there for 6am. On my break about 9am while I am eating my porridge I check emails, retweet a few competitions and share that days post over a few social media channels. I would be lost without my iPhone! Half an hour is over in no time at all so back to work I go.
Lunch is normally at 12-1pm where I gobble down an apple, yogurt and maybe a cheeky chocolate bar, while I am tweeting away, making blog notes, txting my husband and entering competitions. When I am at work I have to make sure I only need one hand to eat my lunch as the other is busy on the phone draining its battery. Why are iPhone batteries drained in such a short time?
At 1pm I go back to work for 2 more hours until I finish at 3pm, then I pop home and pick up my husband and we go and do our weekly food shop. I make sure he’s with me as I am terrible at overspending on treats, especially the chocolate kind!
We are normally home by 5pm so then its shopping away and time to cook the tea. By 6:30pm we are sitting down eating and waiting for some Saturday night show like, Britain’s Got Talent, The Voice or The X Factor to come on. While I am watching TV I’m catching up with bits and bobs on the laptop. If I get a spare half hour before bed I love to read a few pages of the book that I’m currently reading. 
Before I know it I can barely keep my eyes open and it’s time for bed. Time is just a very precious thing and its something that seems to rule our everyday lives.
How often do you say ‘Oh I wish I had time for that!’?
Thanks very much to Thereadingresidence for hosting this great linky once  again.

    Oh, only about every day! It's a precious commodity, isn't it? Sounds like you're cramming plenty into your day, though. I hate to feel I'm wasting my time, too, though reading a book is always time well-spent 🙂 Thanks for sharing with #WotW
