    Once they are in bed I start the tedious process of telling them to stay there, be quiet, no you don't need a drink for the billionth time, quickly go to the toilet for yet another two drips you don't need to do and go straight back to bed, ok just one more kiss, ok you can kiss the baby in my belly one more time. Ughso over bed time.

    Once they are in bed I surf the net and watch tv until uni starts back up in March.

    I pick up the zillion toys everywhere as the house looks like a bombs hit it and I learnt my lesson last week after tripping in the middle of the night on a frisbee while holding the baby .

    I then collapse comatose in bed , play words with friends , browse BH, read a mag or book , text friends , watch my Prisoner or Melrose Place box sets ( or tennis currently yay !!) .

    Pretty much count down the two or three hours quiet before both kids begin their taking turns waking all night long routine !!!!

    I usually spend about an hour cleaning up the kitchen and dining room. Then I spend about 2hrs doing work - I run 2 busineses, this can involve lots of things like answering emails, researching on the net, photocopying etc.

    At about 10:30 I have a shower, then I pack all the bags and fill out any forms or pay the bills. Somewhere around midnight I fall into bed.

    DH is a teacher so he does at least 3-4 hrs of school work per night. He usually goes to bed around 11:30.

    I do as little as possible. That generally involves watching tv or surfing the net with my laptop on my lap whilst watching tv.Occasionally I might venture off the sofa....but only to go get snacks and tea.

    Well I've been staying up late watching the Tennis lately!

    Otherwise I usually read or watch TV in the peace and quiet.

    DP's away for work most of the time, so I'm alone. I watch movies or TV, or come online. I generally just slack off.
