Photo taken on Mothers Day
It's been a full few weeks.
Since the school fete & Mothers Day two weeks ago ...
I've still had craft stall stuff piled up in the living room
I've had an interview to allow me to get back into teaching
I've accompanied a flute exam
The girls have both had sick days
I've been sick with a cold
we've signed a contract to add a storey onto our house!
(More on that later!)
A few days ago I felt so sick and miserable and lethargic with my cold that I doubted I would ever do anything again buy sit on the sofa (and knit a nice cardigan, that's another post!)
But a few days later, I'm bursting with energy and things are starting to go more smoothly.
Today we had a great day, we worked together (and separately) and achieved a lot:
Tidied the living room before the architect visited
Baked a chocolate coconut slice
Tidied the front yard
A few loads of washing
Fresh sheets on all the beds (thankyou Steve!)
School assignment begun
Homemade Pizzas and Apple Pie
Went for a walk
Tidied the candle cupboard
(yes, I have a candle cupboard)
Tidied the dresser
I got rid of all the junk and added a little Swedish striped cloth I bought at the craft stall
We had a beautiful sunny 23deg Autumn day, and I think that helped a lot.
We've been trying to teach the girls that work is a good thing, and can be fun, and I think today we all felt some of that, and a few rewards along the way helped reinforce the idea.
I hope we have plenty more Saturdays like today!
