Hello my lovelies, how are you?? Hope your Thursday's been good? I've just been pootling around down here tidying a few things away, attempting to straighten our downstairs living space out a little. Tell me, how does everything manage to get so ridiculously messy so ridiculously quickly?? This house is in such a messy mess, it's quite impossible to keep on top of it at the moment. But do you know what?? I am NOT allowing myself to be dragged down by it, even though this volume of neverending messy mess could easily become quite draggy. I refuse to be dragged. I do what I can, when I can, I trip over things quite a lot, I lose things quite a lot, we live amongst messy piles. But hey, it's not so bad. We have fresh flowers over there in the corner by the window look and they are absolutely deeeeeeelicious.
These are scented stocks bought for a few pounds from the supermarket over a week ago and they are still going strong. I find the scent of them totally captivating and nostalgic. As I was tidying a bit ago, I bent over to pick up two felt tip pens, a stray sock, a muslin cloth, a rattle, a magazine and a barbie shoe, and the scent reached me in a great big beautiful waft of deliciousness. It was so lovely! I stuck my nose right into those blooms and felt light as a feather. Not a single bit of draggy-ness within my body when I breathed in that summer scent.
I am so busy at the moment. Busy busy busy.
Home-school-supermarket-home-cafe-shops-home-school-home, that was today's schedule.
I'm still milk tankering with Little B every 3 hours during the day, wherever we happen to be. He gets fed in cafe's a lot as I sit and natter to friends and drink coffee, but he doesn't seem to mind bless him. Plus this week we're now attempting to fit in two messy spoon meals a day in between the milk tankering. Oh the delights of introducing a baby to pureed foods, it's a fabulous learning curve and I do enjoy it enormously. Today we did butternut squash and apple, and it was a huge success, such fun sitting on the floor in the kitchen doing mmmmmmmm things together.
Not sure why I'm telling you all this, I hadn't meant to talk baby things to you.....what I actually meant to say was LOOK, I finished my round cushion, ta-dah!! Little B made it feel at home earlier by spewing up some pureed apple onto the side of it.
Part of my home-school-supermarket-home-cafe-shops-home-school-home schedule today involved an exciting magazine purchase :: Easy Living magazine (June issue) has a free Cath Kidston tote bag which is rather lovely (thanks Ange for the tip off!). It also comes with the CK summer catalogue and 15% off CK purchases until 15th June, in case you're interested. I've been dribbling over this double spread of desirable picnicky/camping things, thinking that Connievan would LOVE some of this prettiness. Floral melamine and spotty tin, very necessary Caravan Kit me thinks. So that's it, I've decided, right here, right now. I'm going to splurge. Yes, I really am!! Not often I splurge on Kit, and Yippety-yay I am majorly excited at the prospect (never ordered online from CK before ever-ever). Wonder what the Hubby will say? I've already told him just now that we'll Have To Have this kettle for Connievan, I think he's pretty happy to indulge me because he knows very well that this is the Stuff Of My Dreams. He's a good man for sure.
Ahhhhhhh lookie there's a picture of my bed! When I catch sight of my bed I just kind of involuntarily sigh with pleasure ((aaahhhhhhhhhhhh)). I love my bed sooooo much. Love climbing in to bed at the end of a busy busy busy day.
Which is precisely where I'm off to Right Now, to rest my weary head.
Night night all xxxxxxxxxxxx
