Good morning lovely people. Well it’s Monday and it’s all back to work and school. Good bye half-term, hello routine. There’s nothing like a quick slap round the face with a bit of normality to bring you down to earth. When that alarm went off at 5.50am all the cosyness of last week just instantly vanished. How does that happen?? Even the cats looked a bit shocked when I strolled into the kitchen at silly o’clock this morning.
The sun is actually shining here in MK and I’m nursing my usual frothy coffee whilst chatting with you guys. Today holds normal stuff and I’m a girl of routine so it’s easy [if unwelcome] to slide back into the daily grind of early rise, school run, domestics, early lunch aka late breakfast [the downside to working from 11.30am to 1.30pm], work, home, school run, homework, supper ~ you get the idea I’m sure. There’s some comfort and familiarity to be found in those mundane, routine events and I thrive on it even if I don’t always like it.
So, I have a load of wet washing that needs some attention and some dry washing that needs relocating. I might, if I’m feeling super brave, wash the kitchen floor ~ a week of regular traffic has taken it’s toll, ewww!! Supper tonight will involve mashed potatoes, sweetheart cabbage and a steak pudding so I might prepare some of that before I leave for work. Whatever you’re doing today I hope you find some joy and value in it. Have a lovely day!!
