Outside my window it is dry, hurrah, it feels like it has rained all week here, last night it sounded like someone was hosing my windows the rain was so hard.
I am thinking about my mum, she has a lot on her plate at the moment some of which I wish I could wave a wand and make easier for her. It will all be sorted soon and then we can all breathe out.
We have all spend time with our friends this week I am thankful we have these lovely people in our lives.
In my kitchen it is rather messy, there are bowls of butter beans, nuts and seeds soaking on the side in readiness for cooking today and tomorrow, there is a big pile of washing up from breakfast, dinner (we are having a picnic today) and hummus making, there are also a few bits and pieces drying on the side from yesterdays crafting.
My knitting needles are busy once again now that the weather has cooled, I am creating a cardigan for my nephew and a tunic for Alice.
It is Friday which means I am going into the local town later to do my weekly shop and take Cameron and Alice swimming with a group of their friends.
I am wondering about some things I was told yesterday about someone I have known for years, it explains some behaviour towards Cameron but is not by any means an excuse to treat him as he has been.
My parents came up for a visit a month or so ago and bought with them a big pile of books for us, we often swop books in this way, I am working my way through them. Currently I am reading The Lunar Men by Jenny Aglow, a interesting read about a group of men who formed the Lunar Society during the Industrial Revolution.
We are heading up to Scotland next week to stay with friends, I am looking forward to some family time and of course catching up with friends we rarely see as they live so far away.
Around the house it is remarkably tidy at the moment, we had a group of friends over yesterday for the day, our monthly craft group meet up, it is amazing the effect visitors have on the state of my house!
What you resist, persists is a favourite quote at the moment as I try to make sense of some of the things going on in my life right now.
We have several birthdays coming up in the next month so I have a few plans for presents to make and gift.
As it it Friday, I am pondering things to do this weekend, I have various jobs I need to do in readiness for our time away.
I have started to listen to a TED talk every morning whilst I potter in the kitchen making breakfast and sorting food for the day, I am learning so much in these interesting and inspiring videos.
I am wearing a blue needlecord dress with a dandelion seed head print and navy leggings, I am still not wearing socks in the house, preferring instead to go barefoot.
I am listening to Caillou en Français on You Tube our Friday morning listening whilst our French group is having a break this term, we are keeping up with our learning.
A peek into my day.
