Another beautiful week of sunshine and warmth, with a extra day at home for the children :)

As I look outside my window:::

The sun is shining, they are predicting temperatures of 21degrees today (very unusual for this time of the year).  I think the rain is returning at the weekend.

Right now I am::: 

Eating a late breakfast.  It took me longer than usual to fed and muck out the animals today.  M is off school today, she has a nasty cough and is asleep in bed.

Thinking and pondering:::

About what to do today.  I want  to be out in the garden enjoying the sunshine, but have so much tidying to do in the house ...... decisions, decisions :)

On my bedside table:::
Hand cream ~ sunshine and gardening always dry my hands out quickly.
The World of Norm (reading with the children).
Crochet magazines.

On my TV this week:::

Enjoying:
Shetland
Great British Sewing Bee
Law and Order UK
Collectaholics (BBC2)
Tipping Point!!
The Voice

Listening to:::
The birds chirping in the garden.
The cockerel cock-a-doodle-doing.
The dog eating in the next room.

y simple pleasure:::

Snuggling up and watching a film (yesterday afternoon) with a poorly M when everyone else was out.

Lesson learned the past week:::

I always plan too much for my English lessons!

Looking around the house:::
Not much has changed this week (but at least it hasn't got worse!).  I am making slow progress with the playroom.  The ironing pile is reducing slowly.  W's bedroom is tidy(ish) for a change.

From the camera:::



You are never too big to play with dinosaurs in the sunshine :)



I hope you all have a great week!
