I got a very unwelcome alarm call at 4.30am this morning when a nagging pain in my hip woke me up.
I struggled to get back to sleep and decided to get cracking on the work I had planned today.
That is one of the advantages of being freelance - it doesn't matter when you get the work done as long as you do it.
By 7am I had typed up and re-worked a chapter from one of my writing students, uploaded some news on Train 2000's blogs, written several emails and planned out some ideas for a PR campaign.
During the school holidays I try and get the bulk of my work done before the children rise at about 10am.
This afternoon I took my youngest for a game of tennis and brought his friend home for a game of cricket.
Today's activity called for a laidback look and I opted for Gap Curvy Jeans, a Vest and my Clarks flats which were easily swapped for trainers when we played tennis.
It's almost 5pm now and I feel ready for bed.
Can't think why!
