I started the day with a pomegranate and raspberry tea. It tastes a little bit like weak Vimto. When I was little Vimto used to be a real treat for us and we'd drink it hot or cold depending on our mood or the weather.
I'm on a roll with the kitchen cupboards. My corner one didn't take as long as I thought it would so I also did the food cupboard. It's funny how only having one cupboard a day on a 'to do' list is that easy to achieve it doesn't seem too hard to do another.
The cupboards got a good wipe down although they weren't actually that bad, just in a mess. These photos won't win any prizes for most interesting blog pictures but I do like a before and after for me to look at and feel like it was a job worth doing. Don't worry, I won't be posting pictures of my cupboards every day!
I took Mum to Middleton this morning. My brother bought her a coffee machine for Christmas so she wanted some latte cups and a pair of knitting needles. She came home with the cups, a rug, a dinner service, nail files and a packet of easiyo yoghurt! But no knitting needles, although I managed to find her some in Asda this afternoon. I came home with a storage box for my 'tidy stationery shelf' day and a bag of oven chips!
The first day back at school seems to have gone well. It doesn't take long for Amy and Thomas to get back into the stride of things.
And I'm off to Dunelm tomorrow to look at their bits and bobs, so tomorrow's photos should be more interesting.
