Day 4- House Attention

Cooler temperatures yah! I decide to spend some time at home doing odd jobs as I have been putting them off and blaming the weather. Decorations came down which always makes the family room look bigger and less cluttered, that makes me happy as I am not one that does clutter very well. I tidy the room and give the floor a good vacuum. Washing on before I tackle the kitchen. After breakfast of course which today consisted of a blueberry smoothie.

As I tend to cook a fair bit my pantry is always full of ingredients and I had noticed over the Christmas tiny mite type things in there so I had to investigate and of course discovered I had weavels. So, out came everything and I threw away so much flour based products. I do get these weavels from time to time I’m sure I can’t be the only one!! That chore took me longer than expected. I stopped for a cup of tea before I started on cleaning my kitchen then moved on to tidying up my study especially the computer desk.  All boring things but needed to be done.

Katie was still very quiet today. Hope she is OK. Andrew came home just after lunch today which was good and he and Katie went to pick up a second hand bike that they had bought. Bargain apparently! 

Thomas and I sneeked in some reading time whilst they were out which is where today’s photo comes in to play. It is the cover of the book I am reading. A sequel to the one I read last year. I find it hard to start books but once I do I really get into them and love the time to read. I am not a particularly fast reader but I enjoy it. Thomas who hardly ever reads has been engrossed in a book I bought him for Christmas which is the autobiography of the founder of Nike “Shoe boy”. Thomas loves his “shoes” with a passion and has a small collection of the most expensive training/sports/casual/running shoes. He finished the book this afternoon and loved it. Well done Thomas. Hopefully there were some parts of the book he took notes on.

Salmon was on the menu for tea which we ate at the same time as speaking to my father overseas. He is planning a trip back to Australia next month and was talking to us about that and what he’s plans are. I do miss him not being around as we were so close and I don’t really want that feeling to be lost.

Andrew and I managed to watch one more episode of The Tunnel this evening, it’s getting very complicated with so many characters. With 2 episodes to go I’m hoping it will all come together. It is very intriguing.

Signing off until tomorrow……..
