hello present shopping It's Natalie's birthday today, and my birthday next Monday, so today is present shopping day. Nat even supplied us with a list.
hello cake baking Going hand in hand with birthdays and presents is birthday cake! Of course, Nat left it until 7pm last night to ask me if I could make cakes for her class. Super-mum said maybe, but we all know I'm going to pull something out, and be waiting outside her classroom at 2.15pm with cupcakes!
hello book club I've been meeting with my real-life-bookclub for coming up to 14 years now. This month, we're reading Useful by Debra Oswald.
hello letter writing With Chloe in Tasmania, it gives us a great excuse to practise regular letter writing. The kids sat down late last week and wrote to her, and I need to finish my letter off today, and print a photo out, and then a parcel will be winging it's way across the seas (because if you're going to send something to Tasmania, it better be worth it!)
hello writing time This week, I'm hoping to get stuck in and spend a good chunk of time on daycare days actually doing stuff, including writing blog posts. I had a nice routine started, then Sophie got sick, and Steve had weekdays off, and it all went out the window. (I always let myself get distracted when Steve is home.)
hello Monday, a new start every week
