Potted History

Dear Mum,

I need to get to bed (again) so will only do a potted version of the day.

Went to argue with the estate agents a bit at the start of the day, then took Joshua to Piney Lakes Park, he had a great time and we also ate our lunch there,peanut butter and Vegemite sandwiches.

In the afternoon he and I made a lemon cake, hence the outfit in the photo, it turned out okay but I think next time I might need to bake the base for just a teeny bit longer, so it’s slightly less squishy.

We popped to Julie’s house and gave it a quick vacuum, as the travellers are back tomorrow afternoon.They’re going to pop over at about five so I might see them if they hang around long enough for me to get back from work.

I made pasta for dinner, a bolognese, Dee didn’t get back in time for tea as she went shopping straight from work, hopefully we now have enough food to last until we move house, more or less.

Josh is at daycare tomorrow and Deanne and I are at work, so I’ll sign off for now.

Oh, we got the house, by the way!

I Don’t Need A Nap

Dear Mum,
Because Josh was late to bed (for no particular reason) last night, he didn’t get his story. So this morning he brought about ten books into our bed and I read them all to him. They weren’t particularly short stories either. This meant that he and I weren’t out of bed until nine o’clock.
We had breakfast then hung some washing out, which seems to take considerably longer when you’re assisted by a four year old!
For lunch Josh wanted beans and toast, I had a cheese and baked beans toasted sandwich, which I rather enjoyed. By the time we finished the boy was getting a bit fractious, so I insisted he have a nap.
That was at one-ish. He got up again at about four. Obviously he “wasn’t tired”, from the amount of times he cried this phrase to me before he went to sleep.
When he woke up we got the washing in, then played in the garden (which is when I took the photo) until it was time to make tea. I put on some pasta and reheated the bolognese sauce Deanne had made at the weekend. It was very good, tasted really bolognese-y, if you know what I mean!
This evening I finished putting together my new website and spec’ing up some business cards for my IT Support thing, Dee has been working on the laptop, but that’s fine ’cause I needed to do some Photoshopping on the desktop. I’m quite impressed that I still have the talent to put a whole website, including logos and text, together in about two or three hours!
Josh is at daycare tomorrow so I can get on with a few things that I’ve failed to do while I’ve had him at home this week.
