Crap I don't have time for!

Some mum's are uber organised. Some mum's are uber house proud.  Some mum's like me just think life is too short for perfection and crap I don't have time!

  • Ironing - Just Urgh!!! I hate it.  I iron the bare minimum.  I'm a firm believer in hanging things up and the creases (might) fall out.

  • Make up - Although I have been attempting to wear it slightly more often now I'm edging towards the big 40.  I just don't understand  mums who have time for a full face of make up every day! How do they do it?

  • Exercise - I know I should make time but seriously I'd rather watch Youtube or catch up on some telly.

  • People telling me what to eat - I hate the new craze for clean eating, 5:2 plans, Paleo diet, dairy free etc. Although the photos on Instagram look nice I don't like being told what to eat by mostly unqualified people.

  • Hangovers - I'm seriously too old. The hangover can last longer than the drinking. Just blur!!!

  • Rudeness - There's just no need. Smile. Say please and thank you.

  • Homework Projects - I feel homework is less for the child and more for you. Well at least at primary school. If its a craft project my heart sinks.  In the last couple of years I've had to make a rainforest, fire engine, shoe, miniature garden and air raid shelter. Thank god for Google!
What crap don't you have time for?

  1. I don't have kids but I have two nieces under 4, and the oldest being 3 still doesn't bother to feed herself half the time. Whenever I visit, I'm already second hand pissed off with her spitting food out and messing around. So yeah. That's crap I wouldn't have time for. Eat or starve. Lol

  2. I definitely don't have time for the rude man in Kwik Fit this morning! I think your list is pretty comprehensive, although I would have to add washing my hair Aarg. Wet, then dry again. BORING ;-)
    Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub lovely! Glad you had time for us MWAH

  3. I'm totally with you on most of those! I eat what I want but just try to be healthy. I exercise when I can but try to balance it with a bit of cleaning and actually chilling out a bit. The one thing I don't have time for is parents who insist on comparing their child with yours on everything; Children are people not robots and develop at different rates and excel at different things. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! #CoolMumClub

  4. I agree with yours, and add that I have no time for toxic people, late nights out, small talk for small talks sake, Donald Trump, and oy, unfortunately I can go on... Great post. #bigpinklink

  5. I have to admit that I do quite a bit of housework, but I don't have time for any of the stuff you mention here either! I don't think i have ironed in about 5 years! #bigpinklink

  6. I similar to you - I try to keep the house tidy as it makes me feel horrid if it's not but I see these Mum's on the school run with more make up on than I would wear on a Saturday night! I wonder how on earth they have the time or inclination. Thanks for joining the #weekendblogshare
