Friday's my Day

Friday's my Day

No work......small people at school.......empty house......

So really I should be running around like a woman possessed doing the household chores, catching up on the build up created by 4 days at work.

But today I am not. Friday is my day.

I have done the basics, dishwasher on, washing machine loaded & unloaded x2, and off for a quick shop I have gone.

I met with a fab friend & had a quick mooch round a small retail outlet, stopped for tea & scones in the Thornton's Coffee Shop (yum) & had lots of cuddles with her 6 month old baby. What a lovely couple of hours, friends are invaluable.

On the way home, i stopped at the local fruit & veg shop & blew £2.60 on these.......

A quick snip & into an old frosted bath bubble jar - recycled raffia bow to complete & ta-da!

Yellow cheer to arrive quite soon & hopefully everyone will be so busy admiring the yellow cheer, that the dust won't be so noticeable........

The bright yellow tulips have ended up in a passata bottle in the lounge (sneaky housekeeping distraction number two).


I spy the new Cub sweater, awaiting its badges & when is Cubs?? - tonight at 6.

I need to go & get the little people from school in 10 minutes.

Oh well, i feel a mad stitching dash coming up - I must be more organised...!

Love from Lydia


  1. Loving the yellow tulips and daffs at this time of year (although I went for pink tulips this week).
    I always swear by flowers/bright afghans averting ones eyes away from dust ;o)
    ps welcome to Blogland Lydia, you're gonna love it

  2. you seem pretty organised to me. And good for you for doing *whatever* instead of running around like a mad thing. I wish I could do the same sometimes.

    I've been to Sainsbury's this morning, so have fresh flowers in the house (although to be honest, I am very rarely without, it's one of my 'things'), a variety of tulips are nestled in a jam jar hidden in a hot choccy tin, and on the windowsills in bedroom and living room, a plethora of strawberry, raspberry and pink berry coloured roses. Gorgeous. (could you tell I couldn't think of any pink berries?!!!)

    enjoy your weekend
