Summer holidays is all about having fun with the kids for me. But I cannot drop my work from home activities for 6 weeks, so I applied some of my tips from my recent blog post. Whilst we had some time away on holiday, when I did no work, there were plenty of days at home when I actually got a fair bit done.
So here is what one of those days looked like!
We started the day slowly, or at least the children did! I was up and ready and slipped in a power hour of work before the kids were even dressed. I concentrated on the matched betting offers that were available to me and I quickly did as many as I could. An hour later the kids were starting to get ready and I was done with the offers I could do.
I packed a picnic, loaded up the car and off we went to the woods! We had a great time walking, exploring, den building, eating our picnic lunch and enjoying an ice cream. It was really nice to go somewhere peaceful and completely away from any technology!!
We got home a few hours later and the kids were more than ready to settle down to something quiet after tiring themselves out in the woods! So I took advantage and squeezed in a bit more work.......I booked in an event for September, started preparing my new Flamingo Paperie brochures, planned some blog posts and scheduled some social media posts. I even had a little help with my brochures!!
I had an extremely productive day that day, I even did some more work when the kids had gone to bed, this is unusual for me as I am usually knackered by then!! Not all the summer holiday days were as productive! Even when I wasn't away on holiday there were days I didn't get very much work done, some of these were due to full days out or having other things going on. But I didn't feel guilty as I was enjoying these times with the children.
Chipping away at chunks of work on a regular basis really helped to both bring in some money from the matched betting offers and to keep moving my Flamingo Paperie card business forward. Fitting work in around the other things I am doing is something I do all the time, there is just more other things going on in the Summer Holidays!!
