This is my new mantra

I will get more time to catch my breath once this house is completed!!
I feel like I'm juggling one too many balls at the moment, and my heart is experiencing the odd palpitation just thinking about the consequences of any ball dropping!! My girls did their homework in the back of the car parked on site this afternoon whilst I had a quick meeting with Stephen my plumbing contractor. He has just started preparing the ground floor for underfloor heating, so just wanted me to confirm the exact layout of a few things.....I was 40 minutes and zero homework got done - no surprise there!
To be very honest, I have found keeping on top of my project somewhat difficult over the past couple of weeks. My energy levels are low, the length of my "to do list" is a joke and in general my enthusiasm has been dipping in favour of being just "mummy" to my three girls.
I don't know what would have happend if we hadn't opted for the "main contractor" route.....err yes I do, it would have been a DISASTER!!
Roof will be on and windows fitted in four weeks time, I'm sure I'll get a renewed surge of enthusiasm and energy once the house is weather tight and the internal works get started.....off to Dublin for a family weekend away from all things "house", so hope to be back on form Monday........
