Slept into 6.30am, which is amazing for me. Then had cuddles with Bailey and Rosie before getting up. There was a lovely sunrise this morning which made me miss my morning walks with the dogs.
After saying goodbye to Kevin and Amy I made myself another cup of tea.
When I went to check on Christy she was already up and dressed.
I reminded her to have her asthma medication as she is suffering a bit at the moment (due to having a cold).
I then made us some breakfast. Plain toast for Christy and toast with marmalade for me.
At 8.15am Christy (and Shantel) left for school on their bikes.
And I headed upstairs for my first workout on our new exercise bike.
I felt quite at home since it’s exactly the same as the ones at the gym. And boy did it feel good to sweat – it’s been such a long time since I was able to workout. Here I am nice and sweaty :-). The best part about exercising at home…. I could stay in my pj’s :-).
I showered, dressed, made the bed and came downstairs to put my feet up for a bit.
Then it was time to tackle cleaning downstairs. With my feet so swollen and painful and my heel spur acting up I had to take it easy. I did half of downstairs, had a rest, then finished downstairs. Upstairs will have to wait if I want to be able to walk this afternoon.
Ah, gotta love a clean and tidy house.
My favourite falafel salad for lunch – looks a little bland as I was out of tomato but it still tasted yum. I ate it while watching a Trinny & Suzannah in the USA that I had recorded a while back.
One of Bailey’s many snoozes.
After lunch I made some vegetable soup for Amy to have after school.
And went to do a few layouts. I’ve been really struggling with my scrapbooking lately and have been trying to decide whether to continue with it. I think I just need to try and do some each day.
As usual the pups joined me and enjoyed a sleep on the lounge.
I had to go pick up Amy from the bus stop at 3pm. She spent the afternoon packing for a music camp she’s going on tomorrow and Christy went to ride her horse (ie. bike) with Shantel. Just as I was preparing dinner the post lady (who usually comes around lunch time) arrived with a parcel from Crush Cosmetics.
Before dinner went in the oven I made a batch of banana muffins.
Then time for dinner. Tonight was a veggie snitzel, mashed potato and veggies.
Over dinner we had our Monday night family meeting.
While Amy went up to have her bath and I did the washing up….
Kevin played with his new toy that he got at Questacon…
I then painted my nails
and settled down to watch some Dog Whisperer….
with my puppies….
I put Christy to bed at 8pm and read her some stories, then had another cup of tea before heading to bed around 9.30pm. I read a few chapter of the Pioneer Woman romance story (loving it) and had to laugh when I found Bailey like this :-). I think he missed (his bed). Not that he minded he was like this for ages.
