Today started much better than yesterday with a bowl of porridge and strawberries.
Followed by a quiet 5 minutes with my Angels, who tell me that I am to forget about time. Which is all well and good but that dratted 3pm school pick up doesn't half put a spanner in the works. I have redeemed myself though because I never wear a watch, so I was one step ahead of them today.
We all know what this means don't we.
Hobby time! Which this week means more quilting. I've done the front of the brick one. It wasn't too difficult as it's just straight seams. I also had an email from Dress A Girl and the pencil cases and dolls I sent will be on their way to Uganda next week.
If I was in the business world I'd have 'touched base' with Mark, but as I'm not I just phoned him for a chat instead. He'd just got back from an afternoon in Cleveleys. Amy had been shopping again as she needed some nail clippers, but the shop refused to sell them to her because she was under 18. I'm not sure what they thought she was going to do with them and I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be classed as an offensive weapon by the police, but who knows, maybe I'm out of touch and death by clipping is a murder most horrid these days.
One of the things I'm really enjoying about just me and Thomas being here is the lack of cooking I have to do. Tonight, I made a salad, popped some bread in the toaster and spooned some smoked salmon pate onto a plate. Perfect.
And apart from a bit of pottering around doing this and that there's really not much else that's happened today. I'm enjoying having the house to myself, the peace and quiet is lovely and Thomas is no trouble at all.
