A week in the life of…..

I am the sort of person who loves having my life in a bit of a routine.  Most people find it boring but I really like waking up knowing in general what will happen that day.  It works for Nina as well who like most children seems to be happier when there is a bit of a routine.  I guess I’m a bit like a child in this way.  So I have a bit of a weekly routine that I like.  Of course things often come up so it doesn’t always look exactly like this and there is some flexibility but in general this is what my week looks like (times general guide):
