❖Happy Homemaker Monday *12*❖
Monday 24th March 2014
As I look outside my window:::
It's a dull and windy day, still very chilly. The blossom is hanging on on the bullace tree, but the leaves are starting to push out. The leaves are also starting to appear on the plant that climbs over the front and back of the house.
Right now I am:::
Having a hot chololate and watching a programme about the WW2 Arctic convoys with H and R ~ we all like a good history programme.
Thinking and pondering:::
Our school journey to England next week ......
On my bedside table:::
We have given up with 'The World of Norm' for the moment and have started 'I was a Rat! Or, the Scarlet Slippers' by Philip Pullman ~ it's quite good so far, though the old English language is a little difficult for the children to understand sometimes.
On my TV this week:::
The Great British Sewing Bee
Law and Order UK
Looking forward to:
This week's music ~ Michael Jackson (M) & Kylie Manogue (H)

My simple pleasure:::
Watching how excited our youngest daughter M is about going away with her class next week.
Lesson learned the past week:::
If you want to cook a mixed tray of roasted vegetables don't put the leeks in straight away :)
Looking around the house:::
As the weather has changed we have washing drying everywhere inside the house.
The snooker table is up again, so W is very very happy.
M's bag is packed and ready ........ mine is not! :)
From the camera:::
I hope you all have a great week!
