Last week was just manic and seemed to go at twice the speed of a normal week. Miss L had her first school trip away for 2 nights and we missed her loads. The early part of the week was taken up with packing and re-packing her bag at least 20 times before she went – you know so you don’t forget something important like soap in a box!. However she had a great trip, they went to an Eco-Centre (great news she’s now turning light off around the house!) and she loved having a massive sleepover with her friends. Like her mother she took at least a 100 photos of anything and everything – it’s been lovely seeing them and the trip from her point of view.
While she was away I was working like a mad woman because school breaks up this coming Friday for the Easter holidays. I’m proud to say managed get out two beautiful sites for Mummy From The Heart and I have two more to get done this week. But then it’s the Easter holidays and I get to play in the garden with Miss L and Betty for the next 3 weeks – hurray!
In preparation for the next few weeks, this weekend we planted up our pea plants, carrot, lettuce, spinach seeds, laid the onion sets and then sanded down the garden seats ready for painting – I’m thinking pale green this year.
After all that work I spent yesterday relaxing with my favourite decorating book and a bottle of coke – how decadent!
Here’s to the holidays!
