Wow where did the week go?

I ended up working everyday except Friday last week so today is a day of catching up on housework, and trying to be more organised for meals for next week.

Fortunately the house isn't too bad the kids and I got stuck in on Friday and did some things, but I have had a bit of a head cold so I was moving much slower than usual!!

As predicted daisyboy4 isn't taking me being at work very well and is very clingy and whingy, I am hoping that when he starts prep in a few weeks he will have so many other thing to occupy his mind that me not being there won't worry him too much.

Daisyson17 is studying externally so that means he will be home to pick up kids from the school bus etc so that is a blessing. he will be working at the local hardware store though three or four days a week and we are trying to work it so he works the days I don't and vice versa.

I have been reading another Elm Creek Quilt novel and so all I really want to do today is unpack the sewing machine and start sewing something! But we are having lunch with friends so it will have to wait until Tuesday when I have a day off.

Once I am over this cold I will get more organised and get some more photos to post for you all of the happenings in the garden. I have pulled everything out of the vege patch and have added loads of manure and am digging it over everyday just to break up the soil. I will plant out some seeds today I think if I have time and so in a few weeks things will be ready to go again but this time with more planning and rotation so hopefully we get good yields.

I have decided to learn how to quilt this year and have just been to Amazon to get the first of her novel's. Maybe it will give me some inspiration, LOL, Margaret

Beautiful roses! Glad you survived the first week at work and that the kids all helped out. When I went back to work full- time a few years back my kids took turns to cook the evening meal - it was great! They are such good cooks.

Hi there, DaisyMum

Good to see you survived the workday week! Summer colds are the worst, aren't they? I've been gardening, cooking,tidying all weekend. We have visitors coming for the long weekend next week so I need to keep on top of things.

Cheers - Joolz

I find that I definately need to be organised to work outside the home or at home as I do. I have been thinking of cutting down my work to just two days a week.

Glad it all went well for you, and I am sure daisyson4 will get used to the idea of you working. After having you around all the time it is a big change for him.

Hello DM
Thanks for dropping in and telling me the whole story - hope you sorted something out in that dept.

Its good when the kids are willing to lend a hand, maybe things won't be quite so bad this coming week Only time will tell.

Take care
