Blogtober 2020 – Can’t Get You Out Of My Head

It is day 22 of the Blogtober 2020 Challenge, and I am still going :).  Today the prompt is Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.

In my house I am always going around like a mad woman, saying I am busy. So I thought I would give you a glimpse of a day in my life and what is constantly going around in my mind.

Waking up

Once I have woken up before I can even think about having my coffee I have to

  • Check and see if C is awake.  If she is I sort out her morning medication and see what she wants for breakfast.  If she is still asleep I leave her and just keep checking on her.
  • Sort out the dogs dinner, one of our dogs has a raw diet so I need to get that out of his freezer
  • Sort out what we are having for dinner
  • Put the kettle on and make a coffee

While I am drinking my coffee I –

  • Check my emails and send replies
  • Get dressed
  • Sort out any washing that needs doing
  • Start on the housework
  • Start my blog work – writing posts, replying to comments, sharing new posts, checking blogging groups.
  • It is then lunchtime.


This is generally blog work, as there is so much more to writing and publishing a post that takes time.  I also

  • Prepare dinner
  • Walk the dogs
  • General bits that need doing around the house
  • 5pm I down tools and start to prepare dinner and switch off for the day.
  • I then spend the evening making mental notes of what I need to do the next day.


I generally potter around doing bits and pieces but can not switch off properly until C is sorted and had her medication and settled in bed.

What is always on your mind? Do you ever switch off?

    I don’t think people have any idea how much goes into publishing a blog post.

      I don’t think they do either, we would all love to be able to just write and hit the publish button and that is it

    It sounds like you have such a busy day. It is hard to switch off and totally relax. Even when I think I am done for the day I am always thinking about what I have to do the next day x

    I find it very hard to switch off myself, especially as of late!
