Last week was taken up with me still painting my room and starting to get further along with the patio, which now is going to be decking.I’m finding the day goes by so quickly with a 3 hour chunk being taken out of my day due to the school run.
It’s not been an easy decision but I’m looking into changing the girl’s current school to somewhere nearer to home.A 45 minute walk is pleasant enough in the morning but not so much when you have to turn around and go straight back.And there’s the Winter.I have one day a week where I allow myself some time to go around the charity shops.Then I get the little bus home which drops off literally a minute from our house.At 2 o’clock I set out to pick up the girls then we’re back home around 4.
I walk 8 miles a day.
This weekend I gave up on getting on top off house work and all the things I wanted to be done before the kids break up.Me and my dad had a second visit buying decking for the garden and that is now 1/3 of the way there.He comes around when it’s cooler because he’s not getting any younger and I wouldn’t want to be working out there in this heat.
Sunday we visited the local farmers market which comes here each month.This month was a food and drink festival which was nothing more than having a few more stalls really.We always love going as we always pick up something different to eat or drink and it’s nice to support locals traders.I also took some black and white photos which I’m trying to get to grips with since I use the Hipstamatic app on my iphone.
After a picnic lunch we went back to my mum’s and sat in her garden enjoying everything she has in such a small space.Our garden is a lot bigger, so I’m very optimistic of the future of my garden as I have many plans for to what I want ours to look like.
After leaving my mum’s mid afternoon we went and foraged some wild plums (jam recipe coming up this week) and the kids had a play on a rope swing that hangs from one of the trees near the park where my mum lives.
Now it’s back to household stuff and cracking on with that to do list.
How was your weekend? Have yours broken up yet or are you still waiting like me?
