A day off?

I've got Samuel at home today with a chesty cough and "Man Flu". Great I thought, a day off!! Really?
I've never thought of blogging a whole day before but today I thought I'd give it a go.

It started early with Vicks and an inhaler and John going to work. Then I gave myself an hour and had a cup of tea and a read of my new book........
followed by the laundry, striping the bed, ironing and making marble muffins.

Then the dog got walked, Ballindalloch Cheesy Mince Pie was made, the muffins got iced and the floor got mopped.
The kitchen got tidied and I managed a cuppa and a muffin before hoovering the bedroom and re-making the bed.
Now I'm blogging and waiting for John to get home so we can eat. I think after all that it will be an early night.
Whoever said that staying at home was easy was obviously a man in an untidy house!!
How's that for blogging the mundane?


  1. That is SOOOO true Liz... I don't work and I have real trouble keeping up (maybe if I dodn't spend so much time on here it might help....No, I don't think it would)...

    Such a good idea to blog the mundane day to day... may try that soon...xo

  2. That's a brilliant idea! Your muffins look good ... there's a joke in there somewhere! I made Raspberry Crumble Cake today ~ yum! Hope DN is feeling better. x

  3. Hope Samuel is feeling better.
    What a productive day you had Liz, so love the look of those muffins.
    Enjoy your evening......:-) Hugs

  4. Sorry that Samuel is ill. Darn weather! But your post was great. No one realizes what a person spending their days taking care of their home and family has to deal with. My hat is off to you!

  5. I love getting a peak at people's everyday lives (must be the nosey parker in me!). Great post and nice to see the photos to go with it.
