    Between entertainment and responsibly, how you prefer to balance your life? in our life now a days the hectic schedules some times make us like machines one can say. We just pass our time without actually living life. To enjoy life entertainment of any sort that may make us relaxed and rejuvenated is required. But how to balance between entertainment and our so called responsibilities?
    What is your view on this and how you prefer to entertain your self ?

      Good topic to think about! It sort of depends on how one defines entertainment. I consider it to be a gathering of at least one family or loved one with me in my home. That could be an "official" time when invitations are placed for a specific time to come together or a casual impromptu drop by. Those times are what make up life's memory moments and make the responsibilities all bearable.

        Many thanks. But what you think about your individual entertainment? Only for you to get entertained?

    Hi what a grand question! 

    It is difficult for young couples with a family.  I can only give an account of two of my sons.  One of them has two young boys aged almost 3 and 5 and my other son has 3 children aged 12, 9 and 7.  They both spend a lot of time with their children.  The son with 2 children has a very stressful job.  The other one has his own little business but it is not the kind that runs a normal routine.  Both the daughter-in-laws  work.  One in the evening and every other Saturday and the other every day on a 5 or 6 day a week,  although there is shift work involved.

    The other day the son with the three children said to me, "I feel like a one parent family."  I was sort of shocked!  He said well I work, take the kids to school, bring them home, do most of the cooking and cleaning,  and try and fit my business in between.  He does not go out socially because he's too tired!  The other son is in the same situation and does exactly the same thing! 

    I've started having the two youngest grandchildren as much as I can over night but I live in a one bedroom flat which is small.   The other grandchildren do go to their other grandparents now and again over night.

    Sorry I've gone on but I know there are probably thousands of parents in this situation but where's the answer for them, it must be like being on a roundabout you cannot get off!

    Really good question!
