Hello, I hope you have had a nice day. I have been busy! See that poor woman above, yes, that is me. Tired-out Tara!
I get up every morning and look at my house and think Oh No, they've been again, those people that arrive in the middle of the night and trash my beautifully clean house, and the slowly the realisation sinks in Oh yes that's my family.
This morning I didn't feel like having breakfast, which if I'm honest is fairly normal for me. So I had a vitamin shake that my mum brought over for me yesterday (in fact she brought over several) as her and my dad have decided I look a little drained at the moment and like I need a pick me up. I settled down at the kitchen table with my shake and a list to wrote down what I need to do today.
The first thing I did was get all my ASDA receipts for the last month and see if I was entitled to any vouchers.
Yippee! I am entitled to lots of coupons £8.80 in total.
I then put the bedding from my bed on to wash and hung it on the line to dry. I have to say it certainly has been full of April showers so far this month and I must have retrieved the washing off the line four times and then put it back out when the sun came out again. I am persistent.
Can you see the rain clouds lurking in thaw distance?
I then went back upstairs as I have an area in the corner of my bedroom that has a basket and everyone dumps their STUFF. So I decided to get rid of the STUFF!
See, how irritating is that...
It took me quite a while and this is what I ended up with:-
This box to be taken to the charity shop when I have the car.
And, some of my daughters clothes that are in too good condition to be thrown away so I will put these on EBay.
I then returned downstairs because it was nearly lunch time and I could hear murmerings of "I'm hungry" every few minutes. But before they had their lunch they had to wait until I had cleaned out the fridge.
After lunch I :-
- Hoovered downstairs
- Dusted downstairs
- Cleaned the toilet
Can you see why I'm tired yet?
It was then time to cook the dinner, I had a tasty brie and rocket salad followed by fruit salad. The others in the house had either jacket potatoes or pasta.
This evening my thirteen year old is at cadets and I need to pick him up but I need to pop to Aldi first as my mum has seen a bedspread and bath mat that she likes in their magazine so I will pick them up for her together with some croissants for my little eight year old.
As most of you will know my Darling eldest son is going to America for three weeks in May, well one of the men that he goes to football with has booked him into the Hilton for his last four nights in New York. How kind is that! What a lucky young man. And yes I am still jealous. I want to go with him but he has promised to Skype me lots.
That's it from me for tonight, have a lovely evening and take care xxx
