    Default Treating life like work

    Just realised I've treated my maternity leave like a holiday and it's not efficient ( up late- notice this post is 1am) sleep in ( fortunately dd sleeps in rather than day nap) go shopping, do coffee etc I need to start treating it like work as my house is a shambles and I'm disorganised, which I hate. I still have to send Xmas cards lol
    In my professional life I'm efficient, organised and on top of things, help me be a better housewife surely there's a trick

    Aww I say go for it! Live it up! Once baby arrives holiday is over! Haha I do however recommend a cleaning duty. Enlist you mum & mil to clean the house once a week (or fortnight) after bub is born, ask them to help with washing & cooking some meals etc. makes the first few weeks at home with bub HEAPS easier.
