My Different Characters

When Kate from What Katie's Kids Did Next..! tweeted this earlier on today it got me thinking about how many characters I am actually portraying.

There's the shopper , as much as I like shopping the constant food shopping with the horrendous bill at the end of it , it is a shock to the system. The busy supermarkets with children screaming , people barging trolleys into you and your child refusing to stay in his trolley - It's a living nightmare. Then at the end of all that and you finally have the shopping in the trolley after fighting with your Other Half about what make of bread you want there's the scanning and packing. I'm exhausted by the time I get home.

There's never a job done when your a
cleaner , constantly hoovering/mopping/polishing/scrubbing and what your not doing that your in housewifey mode. The pile of washing up that gets added to with each meal, the clothes pile that can be compared to Mount Everest and is only getting higher needs to be sorted into colours/whites and then put into the washing machine - but even when that's done your having to drag it into the tumble dryer/on to the line.

Being a
Cook is one mode that I seem to always be in , no sooner have I got breakfast cooked , along comes lunch and as soon as I got that out the way along comes teatime. That food I bought is soon cooked & eaten and then the plates are sat there ready to be washed up - it's all a vicious circle!

I've recently added
Student to this forever growing list , I have been meaning to cancel my course in the hunt for a job but I have decided that full time just wouldn't be for me just yet so I hope to find a part time job so that I can continue to be a student with the OU. My course officially started yesterday , I have already read 100 pages and forgotten already what it said #studentfail.

And lastly
Mother , the one character that I wouldn't change for all the money in the world. This is one job no matter how tired & worn out I am from all the other jobs I will still put 100% into. Being a Mother isn't one that cant wait/be put aside. It's there all the time from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to bed, or like me in the middle of the night for that feed.

Your on the front line with this job , your a Mother in public and in private . Your a Mother 24/7.

What different characters do you have to be?
