This week

flowers collected

Monday morning, always has me wondering what the week ahead might bring. I have to say I'm not a morning person, it takes me about 1/2 an hour, at least, for my head to unfog. It's because of the little people in the house really. More often than not it's them that wake me, and then I'm straight into it, no quiet time in which to become aquainted with the new day. At this time of day any loud noises or fast movements tend to make my head hurt. Anyone else like this? The first thing I do, after attending to any urgent small people requests, is turn the coffee machine on, I'm somewhat dissapointed really to say that I'm addicted. It's not until after a nice hot strong coffee that my head begins to clear, and if I don't have it by 10.30 then a headache start to creep it's way in. Only one coffee a day mind you, just the morning one and then I'm fine for the rest of the day, so it could be worse.

So what will today and this week bring. I feel busy at the moment, that feeling of things needing to be attended to but not really being sure of what they are exactly. I think it's Christmas, and the end of the year, I get this deadline kind of feeling. So I'm writing lots of lists.
This week there will be:
Some house painting - a little bit everyday hopefully, I'm chipping away at it bit by bit, though today looks like rain. A couple of parcels to post in the mail. Hopefully some sewing, a dress for me that's almost finished. More knitting, a Christmas gift. Some Christmas gift purchases to be made. A food order arriving to fill up the pantry jars again. Library visit. Time spent in the garden, I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and buy some tomato plants as my seedlings are growing so slowly and I'm starting to get twitchy. Play dates for the kids. Isla's upcoming birthday party to think about. And then of course all the regulars, cleaning, cooking, baking, washing etc.
What do you have planned for the week ahead?

The flowers are Liam's collections, he loves bringing in flowers to me, I just need to teach him to pick them with a bit of a stalk so we can put them in vases instead of bowls :)

Such sweet collections of flowers, with or without the stem.

You are not alone. When my daughter was a baby, I used to set the alarm for 5:30 a.m. so I could have breakfast & a cup of coffee before she woke around 6. Even if I only got 20 minutes of "wake up time", it helped a lot.

She will be 29 at the end of this month and I'm a grandmother now - enjoy those little ones; they grow so fast!

Ditto on the coffee, I always wait until the big boys have gone to school and then I can sit down and enjoy my coffee.
I'm coming to see you this week, so thats something to look forward to!!
