    Have already done:
    cleaned the house, cooked and eaten a massive roast, washed and dried up. (I make it sound as though *I've* done all this; it's a whole-family effort ).
    Three loads of washing drying on the line. Children now on homework, me about to get out in the garden. Him about to doze on the sofa. Standard Sunday!
    They call me Dr Worm... I'm interested in things; I'm not a real doctor but I am a real worm.

    Nah, not wonderwoman at all, just using the time available to Get Things Done, and have the children trained up now too. Just have the kitchen floor to mop and might go for a walk in a bit, before it rains!

    Prepped dinner for tonight. Pysching myself up to trying on summer clothes so I can find out what still fits as we're going on holiday next Sunday. Not too hopeful about shorts and swimming costume. If I can't fit into my clothes I will probably then spend the rest of the day online ordering a new wardrobe. I've also got to pay for an extra piece of hold luggage - I have to be realistic and accept the fact that we need a suitcase each, that a leopard can't change its it's spots and that I will decide that half a dozen pairs of shoes is the absolute minimum I need.

    Sat at computer typing this. Trying to think of things to do that do't involve making a mess (we are selling up so house needs to be spotless) whilst watching our youngest cat lying asleep on his sister so he is closer to the light.
    Wherever you go, whatever you do Richard Marx is right there waiting for you.

    Day started with completion of financial statement.
    Swim + walk. (Usual) I aim to do 15k steps by time day is out as Sunday's are no excuses day.
    Chilli scrambled eggs on toast for Breakie/brunch. I think I overdid the use of the dried chilli flakes but never mind.
    Went to Aldi's, was going to see if they have any more of the limited edition beanies from their once it's gone aisle but they are now out.
    No coffee to stock pile but I picked up some thin steaks for dinner this week.
    Stopped of at post office to send letter off signed for/recorded delivery. £1.90 for a Tuesday delivery. Let's see if I get a response in 12 days baring in mind the company promise their clients a 42 day turnaround and wanted to encourage me to use the 30 days up before sending them the financial statement.
    Will visit parents for the usual Sunday roast. This week I am taking them an Eton Mess dessert (always do something different to take each week)
    Going to job search for possibility of additional job and explore a shop job that has come up in my town which would be walkable.
    Go to bed early as last nights sleep time was terrible.

    Car boot.
    Took Gitdog to visit poorly neighbour. Apologise for Gitdog.
    Did the last bits of a qualification to send to assessor.
    Couple of hours in a sadly neglected garden.

    That brings me up to now.


    The list for the rest of the day is :
    Do neighbours garden and get to the tip.
    household admin,
    dog walk,
    continue to ignore household tasks apart from the essentials, a spot of DIY

    Cook Sunday dinner and sink into a glass of wine in front of whatever is on TV tonight.

    So far - had breakfast, mucked out the chickens, planted beetroot, cabbages and courgettes, pulled some grown cabbages, weeded, dug and general tidy up around the allotment. Dropped something off at a friends, come home, had something to eat and there is a film on. I still need to go upstairs and sort out some clothes and put stuff away before doing dinner, having a bath and getting my stuff ready for tomorrow

    I got up early, cleaned the house thoroughly, starting upstairs. Put two loads of washing on the line. Just ironed the lot. Also nipped to Sainsbury’s this morning for a few bits. Just sat down for two minutes and ordered a hat from Marks which will be ready to collect tomorrow. I’m just off to have a bath and then my OH and I are going next door but one for drinks for a neighbour’s 80th birthday. Phew!!

    Friend stayed as we were out last night for Eurovision shenanigans. Nursing a hangover today. Entering competitions and watching crap films. Very unproductive day lol.
    2019 wins: Bottle of Prosecco; Popcorn Shed popcorn; Moisturising 'M&S Time Capsules'; Case of Boost Sport + £30 Just Eat voucher; Battle Proms tickets and hotel; under-eye serum...

    My favourite day of the week. We try to make it a relaxing home day but the morning spent digging vegetable patch and sowing some satisfying straight lines of seeds and planting out some items bought at at plant swop event yesterday.

    Roast lunch and then I'm afraid the inevitable but enjoyable post prandial snooze in armchair with sun streaming through the window.

    And hopefully an early night and a reasonable night's sleep to fortify for the week ahead.

    Shockingly little.
    Sorted some ebay wins to pack.
    Took sons to supermarket (if they've chosen the food, they're less likely to let it go icky but as teenagers, I sometimes worry they'll eat the dishcloth if in a curry sauce)
    Applauded the planting of herbs
    Got about halfway through a familiar book (I do love the Amelia Peabody series as her family of eccentrics make mine seem manageable.)
    Watched some of 'what we do in the dark' - the film before the TV series starts.
    (Avoided GoT spoilers, just...!)
    Gawked happily at Royal Wedding stuff & grinned at "blush" as a colour.
    Reality checked a cousin was being cheeky and responded with clear courtesy framing a clear No. (Something of an achievement for me.)
    Eaten half a pizza made by son - he's done well!
    Cheered on son revising before tomorrow's A levels start.
    Lounging planning to read more before bath & bed as work tomorrow.

    Lucky people with Sunday 'off'
    I was working, then I was working some more :-)
    Checking on what's on the to-do list for the week ahead, then some relaxation ( either reading or Netflix)
