Our famous wet west coast weather has returned :~(
After yesterday's glorious sunshine, am rather sad to see the rain again... Still, am making the best of a bad situation and taking advantage of the gloomy weather to accomplish a few things indoors. I have scrubbed down the fronts of all the kitchen cupboards (Dylan thought this was excellent fun!), cleaned the tub and toilet and done (yet another) load of laundry. I am also planning a gourmet roast beef dinner with steamed broccoli and asparagus, and roasted potatoes. Sadly, this isn't England and you can't buy ready-to-serve Yorkshire puddings here... I'd only eat them all anyway, so probably this is a good thing!
I stayed home from work today to try to take it easy. But as anyone who knows me well can attest, I find taking it easy to be quite hard work. I am a perpetual tidier. I can always find something to do! Slowing down isn't really in my nature. Well, that's not strictly true- plunk me down in a spa or at my favourite local tea house with a girlfriend, and I can relax with the best of them! But at home, it's just sooo difficult. How can I relax when I know there's clutter on the kitchen counter? How can I lie down on the couch, when I can see magazines on the floor (that should be stacked neatly on the end table?) You see my dilemma! I remember Wendy hired a cleaner in the weeks leading up to Amelia's birth. Maybe I should look into that... If everything were done, I'd have to take a break. Right?
Design Inc. is on tv at the moment. I love watching it and planning all the lovely things we could do to our house if we were made of money. I can probably spare 20 minutes to watch that!
Hope the sun is shining where you are...
Bye for now,
