I am guilty

I am guilty...

For what you ask?


I know right... ridiculous.

I spend WAY to much time on here or is it there who knows and for what I don't know... 

I am not entirely sure how long/often I spend on here each day... but the other day Ronan came into the room with it... saying I had forgotten it... then shiz is bad.

I KNOW I do not spend every waking second on it... I don't know how it started, but I do know that if my son thinks it needs to follow me around the house then something has to change.

I have been thinking about it for some time now.

How to 'control' how I use it... 

Because lets be honest... it is my only tap into the outside world and sometimes I need my Mumma Village when the sleepless days are endless and the shouty four year olds are shouty.

I thought about only being able to look at it at certain times of the day... you know... 7am, 11am, 3am, 7pm...


After I have Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

Or when the children are busy doing something else... but that is what I do now.

Do I get Ronan to hide it?

In April last year, I successfully stopped myself from looking at my personal Facebook page multiple times a day... to a point where I was scarcely around... but now, I have noticed that I am back there again... sharing the odd photo and the funny/not so funny things my children make me endure.

I am not exactly sure how I am going to get around this... its just a phone... not a life source... or an appendage... 

What ever it is... or isn't... IT needs to lessen OR possibly stop.

So if you see me floating around on social media A LOT... feel free to become all shouty and get me off!

Because I need it... 

My children do too.

What are you guilty of?
Spend to much time on Social Media?

Your comments are not only awesome! They are inspiring!
Thank you.


  1. I do it too. Regular intervals. Increasing intervals. Sometimes I just need to see that there are other goings on out of the four walls I am in. Excuse? Absolutely. But it's the truth. As is the fact our kiddos need our attention too. Where's the happy medium? The balance? I'm not sure just yet. I hope you find it. X

  2. Encouraging you, we all need to be vigilant, so easy to keep sliding back into the habit. Sticking to the balance, I'm always having to begin again{}

    1. So far, so good... but some days are worse then others... you are right, its all about balance. Thanks for stopping by x

  3. I think there are so many of us guilty of this today. I know my hubby gets cranky of I look at mine too often so we have a rule that when we are doing family stuff or during dinner, then no phones allowed! x

    1. We have the same rule, no phones at the table. Hubby is an account manager and he 'tries' not to answer work calls after 630/7.

      Thanks for stopping by Sonia x

  4. Yep, guilty here too! I've adopted Carly from Smaggle's rule of no social media after 9pm (for the most part). I also make sure the phone isn't near me when I'm having a meal with my husband or out with friends or walking the puppy - those are the moments I want to be totally present for and enjoy. We'll support each other!

    1. That is such a good rule Sonia, I may have to look at doing something like that. Though... the ONLY time I really am able to read blog post is after 9... I am sure I will walk it out!

      Thank for stopping by x
