    Loving this weather!
    WM on second load, first is on line and will probably be dry soon!
    Post office drop off done
    Went for a walk around the park in the early sunshine...
    DH has gone to supermarket
    Fridge wiped out although that wasn’t on my list
    Banana bread just put in to oven

    Now I have an excuse for a sit down, if I go upstairs I might not hear the oven timer!! Will have a quick drink and will be productive and wipe over the kitchen and dust the dining room while I am waiting for it....

    Emptied DS's bin - contents put in dustbin

    Sounds like a plan, Round!

    After another lousy night I finally woke just as DH was tootling off to work on the railway. I grabbed a cuppa, checked my emails and then decided to go straight out and work in the garden before it got too hot. With Rosie's "help" I have cleared the back half of one of three borders :D I then carried out the garden table and chairs from their winter store in the back porch and ate my dippy eggs and soldiers in the sunshine :D

    Now off to shower, dress up, drive to the station and catch a train to Cathedral City to meet up with friends :D

    Sausages and chips for tea tonight :D

    Hope everyone else is enjoying the sun x

    Hello flyers

    Yesterday I pegged out washing while at work.

    Today I got up with enough oomph to use in the garden so I have strimmed, cut back lawn (neighbour cuts my front lawn when he cuts his and he did that this mornign after I had strimmed. Perfect)

    I've now pegged out washing, cleaned out the bunny, and emptied shed. Stuff has been binned (fling) - shed needs sweeping then I can put everything back tidily. I've also done some 'slash and burn' gardening in the border - mainly valerian before it goes to seed and to give other plants a fighting chance. DS's bed has been stripped. Carp removed and brought for recyling. Round - I wash my recycling when I wash up. Would that not work for you?

    THEN I'll have a shower!

    Just had a lunch break; pots soaking in sink.

    When I'm clean I need to go to the hospice to pick up t-shirts for the Sparkle walk.

    Hope LW, Dizzy are well.

    :o It would - if I washed up on a regular basis :o

    Round 4:
    DS's dressing gown pegged out
    13 cans rinsed and recycled (that's the last of them :o)
    5 plastic bottles rinsed and recycled
    bowl of pots soaking
    very out of date bread buns flung
    disgusting bananas flung

    I'm going to WUDUPA the bowl of pots that are soaking, wipe down the visible kitchen work top and draining board and then read for a while.

    Love to all

    Banana bread sampled for lunch....yummy!
    Mr T shop put away and kitchen wiped over
    Wash loads 1&2 brought in as they are dry
    Loads 3&4 now flapping on the line, it’s warm and breezy here so perfect drying weather!
    Had a sit in the garden and read the paper, very nice indeed

    Now need to vac the house although I may just wait until it’s a bit cooler....

    Sit and read for a bit more sounds like a good plan!

    Hugs to all x

    Clean and dry dog blankets in and folded - a cat is now perched on top of the pile. Chicken cooked for Layla, some outstanding paperwork cleared and not much else achieved. I still have two sets of minutes outstanding; I can't believe I've let this drag on for this long. Bad Honey Bear.

    I have done dailies, painted the garden bench, cut the front grass and then sat outside for the rest of the day listening to the radio and snoozing.

    DH is now making us omelette for tea.
    Spend less now, work less later.

    I now have a swept, tidy shed. Flinging some stuff meant I was able to put the two boxes of jam jars (kitchen overspill) on shelves. They're lidded boxes, but I will wash then sterilise beofre use.
    Been to collect Sparkle walk t-shirts. Been to Aldi. Remade Ds's bed, vacuumed both bedrooms.Washing in; lots of stuff properly homed.
