    So my working day finished about 20 minutes ago!
    As I had the children all day ( well from 11.30), I couldn't sew until they were safely tucked in bed. So I didn't start my trolley full of work until about 7.30 or maybe later.
    My friend and her Son came round to see my workshop/cabin/shed. I must decide what to call it!! It needs a name. I keep thinking of it as the cow shed, but it is a beautiful wooden cabin and I need to rethink what to call it. The floor covering is being delivered tomorrow. I will attempt to lay it out to straighten up before I lay it properly.
    My bureau was delivered and the desk will be delivered soon along with a few shelves that I bought today.
    I was looking at the windows and now I am thinking about making curtains or Roman blinds for them. ( when I get time!).

    The children were tiring, but much better behaved today. Less tantrums.
    All good.
    When I die I will know that I have lived, loved, mattered and made a difference, even if in a small way.

    Goodness, that is a long day Mooloo! I hope you sleep well and wake feeling refreshed.
    It's not difficult!

    What's the Portuguese for Casa Mia? If it's Casa like Spanish then Casa Mooloo has a nice ring. Or My Dream in Portuguese?

    Meu Sanho is my dream.
    One step closer to one of the dreams.
    I took my work I did last night back in this morning, ironed it and got staff to call the customers. I actually sewed £171.50 worth last night. Took my car in to be serviced. Changed my contents policy. Sewed a few other necessary jobs and left work at 1.15. Collected the car and came home. Had lunch and then while Dgd kept an eye on the kids. I have heaved and tugged and laid the vynl flooring enough to let it settle etc before I actually trim it properly and glue it down. Boy that was hard and hot work.
    Apparently this morning DS sprayed another layer of varnish on Meu Sanho.
    I am just having a rejuvenating cuppa before I do anything else.

    Today is a slow start, I am Babysitting the 4 little ones from just after 11 am today while DS works and Biggest has a dance try out session.
    So wish me luck with the two families combined. Dgd just wants to take her Xbox!! Erm Nope!

    I didn't do anything else last night. Social worker popped by unannounced to visit as I was in the garden with the boys. The meeting on Monday has been changed (yet again ) to Tuesday.
    Thankfully I have staff to cover the shop and Biggest to babysit the boys.

    I think I will be sleeping well tonight.
    Only another 8 hours to go ( or so!)

    It's like refereeing a scrum.
