Monday Morning is the time in my week when I focus on the house; attempt to get on top of the weekend chaos, tackle the laundry mountain and try to organise things for the week ahead. However, when the sun is shining as wonderfully as it was this morning the house mess can wait and time outside is essential. Even better with a camera to capture the glorious sky.
This is the beautiful tree in our front garden "all pink now " to quote middle girl, here it is with a wider frame. I am hoping my Mum will read this and remind me what the tree is called, although pink and blossomy sounds pretty perfect at the moment!
Hanging the washing didn't feel like a chore today and it is giving me a real satisfaction to see the nappies blowing in the wind. I used cloth nappies for half (and a bit) of my half dozen but finally gave in to tiredness, way too much washing, working much more and the happy discovery that Sainsburys Basic nappies are really good as well as being cheap about a year ago. I couldn't face the supermarket at the weekend so after running out of nappies I resurrected my cloth baby, hopefully it might help get ready for potty training too. They look pretty fab dancing away this morning though.
Mothers day flowers look beautiful inside as well
and a beautiful, kind and very thoughtful gift from a friend is making me smile upstairs.
I was too ill at the weekend to go with her to a jumble sale but she kindly shared her findings with me, what a delightful thing to do and it fair cheered me up when I was feeling rough. It will be a treasured gift because of the love and thought that went into it.......and Mr oldpolicehouse won't be able to complain that yet another flowery thing has entered the house!
Finally happiness complete Ruby is wearing the patch and enjoying a precious sisterly moment with a poorly middle girl.
What's your sky like where you are today? I hope it is as glorious and happy making as mine is!
