Odd Sunday!!!

Today has felt like such a weird day....nothing like a Sunday at all.
I think that is mostly because Mr Manic was at work from six 'til six and I am so used to him being here at home and the smell of Sunday lunch cooking rather than spaghetti bolognese which is what we had today. It was very nice but just not right.
Also my thoughts of having a full day upstairs didn't work out. By the time I had made the sauce for tea and washed up, cleaned out the fireplace and laid a new fire, dusted and hoovered the lounge, made DD's birthday cake and cards and wrapped her presents it was time for Mr M to arrive home and be fed and watered and then bath time. I won't get any time tomorrow either as I shall have to have a quick tidy round ready for the arrival of Miss Doodle and her Mummy who are coming to see DD and have lunch with us. I expect they will be here until after tea time too as DS doesn't finish work until late-ish. Whatever happened to all the free time I thought I would be having when I finished work?

So now I am having to take a rest as my back is playing up a little bit and I think I shall check out IPlayer for something to watch as I am not in the mood for a DVD.

Thanks for dropping by......hopefully soon there will be something for you to look!!!


  1. Hmmm, know the feeling Sheila. I keep threatening to go back to work because I have less 'me' time than I've ever had and it's beginning to wind me up, Lol! I have one of my two littlies tomorrow and Wednesday while Mummy's at work and then taking my Mum for her weekly lunch outing on Thursday.

  2. Oh Sheila

    How I can relate to your feelings. My last visitor who stayed, went home this evening - happy, well fed, and with Christmas presents. It seems that Christmas has lasted a long time this year - and although I dearly love the family visiting and staying- (we have to do it in 'shifts' as we live in a small bungalow and don't have much room) it is nice to relax for a little while and have total 'peace' on one's own. And like you I ache for England too - but it's such a nice feeling when you have entertained and family have gone to their homes happy, you feel like you have achieved such a lot. Wishing you a Happy New Year and I hope you get to put your feet up and have some time crafting soon


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
