I think it’s time for a bit of waffle.The A-Z challenge is a great thing to take part in for lots of reasons
but it is time consuming.So here I was
thinking that I’d been slacking since the challenge finished but actually,
having looked at my posts I’m not doing too badly although I’ve been AWOL since
course I’ve been visiting other blogs in the meantime and leaving comments plus
responding to people who’ve visited me.If I’ve missed you, apologies, if you’re one of my regular visitors thanks
for staying with me.It’s all
been a good day so far; it helps that it’s bright and sunny out AND warm! Makes
a change from the last couple of days that were miserable.
still adjusting to a) hubby reducing to a 3 day working week and b) having my
son and DIL living with us.It has
thrown my routines out and actually had me quite unsettled.More so with hubby being around than the
youngsters.They are hardly any trouble
and are quite considerate about keeping us informed about mealtimes etc and
sharing the appliances.
it’s still a big change and having been used to being here all week on my own
and doing my own thing it’s hard to adapt.Must be getting old! Lol
had a few good things on this week though which I’ll share in the Friday Fave
Five tomorrow but today has been a more normal day. (Hubby’s at work.) I’ve got
quite a few chores done including washing.Still playing catch up there due to the old machine breaking down.We decided to go for a new one in the end as
the repair was going to be quite expensive.We had a bit of delay in getting it delivered as the shops delivery guy
was off sick last week so it didn’t arrive until Tuesday.It’s been working pretty much non-stop since
then.I’m more or less caught up now but
the kids still have some to do.
plan for today was to get the chores done and then walk down to the library – I
have a couple of books due back and a reservation to collect.I was then going to jump on a bus to
Stratford and pick up a couple of things, including new sandals (my old faithful’s
from last year which are so comfortable that I’ve worn them almost to death are
looking more shabby than I remembered so a new pair is called for) and
photograph albums.One thing I did get
around to earlier this week was sorting out some photos that need to go in
albums.I also need to print off some of
our digital ones but that’s for another day.
I remembered my Fitbit needed charging.It would be a shame to do all that walking about and not get credit for
it.While I’m waiting for that, and
another load of washing to finish, I have the perfect excuse to sit down with a
cup of tea and blog!Well at least that’s
my excuse and I’m sticking to it!I told
you this was going to be a waffle.
