Today was the start of my housework rota or home blessing as Catriona calls it, which is a really lovely way of looking at it don't you think?
There were 3 things that kept me on track:
1. I set my alarm clock for 8am and actually got up!
2. When I came downstairs I didn't pick the laptop up (I can easily be on there for well over an hour without realising it).
3. Mum was coming at 10.30am, (we were going shopping and having coffee), so I was on a time limit anyway.
Have to say getting up at a decent hour and not picking up the laptop certainly helps. My 'extra jobs' were sorting through the shoe box and the drawers in the lounge. Although it doesn't look any different as there's never much clutter in here it certainly feels cleaner and fresher and I know it's been done. Even the coloured bottles got washed.
I bought loads of bits and bobs in Middleton as usual and also picked up some supplies for Sienna who has officially been booked in to have a sleepover every Tuesday night. This isn't expected, I've just done it to save Sophie having to pack stuff every week. The nappies will probably last 3 visits, the other stuff a lot longer and the whole lot only came to £8.
Mark took Thomas boating while I was out with Mum. I didn't think he'd want to go but he seemed keen enough so off they went and had a good couple of hours together.
I'm off to have a look on ravelry now to see if I can find an easy pattern for a baby poncho. An hour on the laptop, a brew and a bit of knitting will be a real treat today.
