So I read Mrs Darlings blog, quite a bit of it actually, including Pop's stories. The girls wandered off before mum remembered we were meant to be tidying. I lamented the fact that other women could fit so much in during the week and have time to bake (besides the point really, as I hate baking) and dh asked mildly what Mr Darling did. I said I have no idea but he loves The Goonies to which dh muttered 'must be a normal bloke then'. The next question was 'Where do the Darlings live?' I scanned the blog and said 'Oregon'
Cleaning & tidying were completely forgotten while we searched for an Atlas to find Oregon. Dh borrowed my reading glasses and decided he needs his own pair.
So by now about another hour and half had passed and several more cups of tea. But now we know where Oregon is and I decided dh looked rather fanciable in glasses, but I won't tell him that.I did kick everyone into action though and we now have a fairly tidy school area, still with a few plastic boxes but I prefer the baskets.
I also was determined to get the nature table set up by the end of today. This led to another break from cleaning while we held a family discussion about where to put it. Once again two little girls drifted off with an air of out of sight, out of mind. We decided the only option was to cover the juke box and use that.
Dh did the floral display while I finished off King Winter, and bless him he even found something to make a broom with while walking the dog.
Hettie and Dh went swimming, Issy played zoos with her animals and I cooked Sunday dinner. We never got to build a hot tub and sit in it together, but we did have a nice day, and we're very tidy!
