‘I spend as much time with the kids as pos­si­ble’

I WAKE UP EV­ERY MORN­ING AT 6AM, even on the week­ends when my sons Mil­ton, eight, and Mau­rice, six, are with their fa­ther Si­mon. My body just wakes me up. I’ll do some hoover­ing and make sure the house is tidy be­fore the kids get up at 7am. ON WEEK­DAYS I TAKE THE BOYS TO SCHOOL FOR 9AM AND THEN I’M BACK HOME TO GET ON WITH MY WORK. I’m writ­ing my au­to­bi­og­ra­phy and de­sign­ing my blog. I can work from home most of the time, which is per­fect as a mum of young chil­dren. I AL­WAYS COOK THE KIDS’ DIN­NER WHEN THEY’RE AT SCHOOL SO IT’S READY FOR THEM ON THE TA­BLE AT 3.45. I don’t want to be fuss­ing about in the kitchen when they get home. I like to spend as much time chat­ting and play­ing with them as pos­si­ble. THE BOYS HAVE A LIGHT SNACK LATER IN THE AF­TER­NOON AND THEN THEY’RE IN BED FOR 7.30. I should un­wind, but I tend to spend my evenings clean­ing, check­ing emails and watch­ing the news. I have a fi­nal cup of tea around 9pm and take a book to bed. At the mo­ment I’m read­ing some­thing by ro­man­tic nov­el­ist Milly John­son.
