❖Happy Homemaker Monday *18* ❖







Week *18* 


The weekend passed so quickly........ Saturday M had a party so we were back and forth delivering her and picking her up, in between we did some shopping and went to the library.  W chose some books and DVDs for him and M and we picked up a pile of books for H (14) ~ she has nearly finished them all already, she reads so fast!  
Today the sun is shining and the Autumn colours are beautiful, but it is not going to last as cold weather is predicted for next week and then all the leaves will be gone until the Springtime :o(  Today I am all alone for a change so I will have the time and peace and quite to enjoy a little Autumn beauty!

 Looking around the house:::
*The sun is shining 
*The cat and dog are cuddled up in a corner 
*Everywhere needs tidying up ~ I want to get the house tidy before we put the Christmas decorations up the weekend after next
*It's just me here and all is quiet apart from the hum of the heater

What is everyone else doing right now?:::
*The children are all at school, college or lycee
*R is in Eymoutier with a group of school children ~ he has just phoned and said it is beautiful there.

From the camera:::


Too cool for school!!


On my mind:::
*Not much really (!) Just the need to get our house straight and where to start!

Something to make you smile:::
Yesterday morning when I went to let the ducks out, one of them was missing.  I feared the worst as she is a terror for getting out of the house by herself ......... but then I found her!!





I hope you all have a great week!
