Me on Tuesday - 20 June 2023

It was an odd kind of week, last week, with only working every other day, but somehow I managed.  Work was busy as it usually is this time of year.  It's only 5 weeks until our oldest children leave us to start their next big adventure in High school.  So much to organise.  There are leavers hoodies, a class trip and of course the leavers disco all topped off with the summer fayre.

This weekend was relatively quiet.  The bathroom is finished (photos to follow) apart from the worktops that hubby is varnishing and a blind that I haven't even bought yet.  It looks amazing, and Bathroom John has done a brilliant job.  As I was first up, the day after it was finished, I got to use the shower first.  I felt like I was in a posh hotel.  I keep looking at it to make sure it's still there.  

I made some pebbles in memory of my mum, which will be off on their travels later this year, to places mum loved.

I met my Auntie for coffee and had a good catch up.  My cousin's daughter, Miss A, also popped in as Grandma and Grandad were taking her to a party in the afternoon.

We took the boys training.  We went early in the day, as it's too hot for them to be running about mid afternoon.  They get so hot that they stay indoors next to the fan. Oh and they're very partial to an ice cube.

Thunder and rain is forecast for a few days this week and then it's back to dry and hot.  

I hope you had a great weekend in your part of the world.

TTFN.

  1. Yeah to a completed bathroom. I know when we finished our ensuite reno last September, it was to the point of a raffle who got to use the new shower first. (col). Interesting idea of the pepples to take to places your Mum enjoyed. Will you leave them there or bring them home? I think in the hot weather all animals enjoy a chunk of ice. We use to freeze carrots & apple slices in big pails to give to the horses - kept them busy for hours. If I put ice cubes into the cat's water dish, they scope them out to play with & make a mess!

    1. The pebbles will be left behind for others to see. I hope they look at them and it makes them happy that someone loved mum enough to leave a memento.

  2. You have made short work of the bathroom project. I love the stone idea. We have had nice cool evenings to take Ella for her walk. Unfortunately, on Tuesday we saw a mountain lion during our stroll. That cut things short. I cannot wait to see the finished bathroom.

    1. Thankfully we don't have mountain lions where we live. I'm just waiting for hubby to finish varnishing the counter top and then I can take pictures of the bathroom. It doesn't look finished yet as there are still a few gaps in the work surfaces. Hopefully it won't be too long now.
