I got a bit of a spurt on this morning and cleaned the bedroom, changed the bedding, swept all the floors upstairs and down, cleaned all the mirrors, put a load of washing in and pegged a load out.
Then I went into Middleton with Mum where we spent 3 hours shopping and gassing over coffee. I told her she reminded me of a tortoise today. She might only walk slow but when I'm not looking she wanders off and can be half way down the mall before I know it.
Family news of the week was my brother has bought 2 bantam chickens. One is named Millie and the other Hennypennie. I'm sure Little L will be in her element going out to collect the eggs.
I bought a lot of boring stuff like cleaning products, but this was my favourite buy. A pretty box to keep the patchwork in.
I've knitted some more 'squares that aren't squares', sewn the front side to the sleeve and crocheted around it. I think this experiment will probably work out so I'll carry on with it.
I've also started one of my books but I just can't get into the story so will start another tonight. In a few weeks I'll go back to it and it'll turn out to be a really good read. Sometimes you just have to be in the right frame of mind for a certain book.
And that's been my Friday. First week of school has gone well, especially for Thomas which is a real blessing. Tomorrow there may be another holiday home recce on the cards. If not, it'll be a weekend spent at home pottering around gardening, sewing, knitting and reading. It doesn't get much better than that really.
