A Day in my Life – 4th January, 2013

I managed to sleep in till just before 6am. Unfortunately I wasn’t feeling the greatest so had a pretty easy morning on the couch drinking tea and working on my holiday movies. I did go out and water the garden as it’s going to be hot today.



Bailey kept me company in the shade.



Kevin was at work, Amy hanging out in her room and Christy & her friend who had slept over were still asleep, so I got myself a not-s0-healthy breakfast of leftover pizza.


Later, when the girls did awake, I made them some pancakes.



Around 10am I headed upstairs for a shower. Going for the natural look today as I’m just at home.


Time to do todays task – cleaning my bedroom and bathroom.


As you can see the bathroom was in desperate need. Before….




It’s been a long time since I cleaned my house (we’ve had a cleaning service for the last 6 months due to my arthritis) and I really enjoyed it. Took me 2 days (with rests) to do the whole house though :-).


Just as I finished the bathroom Dad came back with dogs from a walk and Bailey was all muddy, so I took him outside to clean him up.



I then made the girls some lunch…


which they enjoyed by the pool…


And I made myself a falafel salad.


I spent the afternoon working on my photobook for our trip.


While the pups had a snooze.


Christy’s friend left mid-afternoon. Around 4.30pm I went out for a swim and to soak up some rays. It was still pretty warm but the real heat of the day was gone and there was a nice breeze.


Back inside I found Christy all upset because her minecraft home was on fire.


Kevin arrived home about 5.30pm with a new desktop computer for me. As you can see it doesn’t fit so he’s going to do modifications to my desk tomorrow.


Since it’s Friday night and the girls have dinner at Nan’s, and I still wasn’t feeling the greatest, we decided to get takeaway noodles. I love this soup with noodles, veggies and tofu. Yum.


We are trying to have our Friday night movie night again so watched The Odd Life of Timothy Green. We weren’t sure what to make of it at first but I love Jennifer Garner and it was a cute movie. Amy watched the second half with us and we then watched another episode of Sherlock, which we are really enjoying. We also had a couple of Godovia chocolates to end the night.

  1. Looks like a lovely relaxing day and I love the look of that lunch and dinner! I hope you start to feel better soon!

  2. Its been a crazy whirlwind around here and this is the first chance I’ve had to pop in and say WELCOME HOME 🙂 your holiday looked amazing!!!

  3. I’ve been looking forward to your day in my life posts again. You have such beautiful skin, so pretty without makeup! That watermelon looks very refreshing, yum! Looks like you are all enjoying being back home.

  4. That soup looks devine. What brand of falafel do you get? They look nice and plump and not greasy like some that I have tried.
    I agree with Ailsa, your skin is really nice. I’m battling the winter dries right now. Smarming my face in Celestial cream from Lush. A bit greasy but helps the dry skin. I also use the in shower exfoliate conditioner that they have. Need to find a good skin cream without too much scent as most scents give me a migraine. Any suggestions?
    Just picked up a watermelon for dessert tonight but I doubt it will look as nice and red as yours.

  5. Looks like a great day, we had a scorcher that day as well, got into the 40’s for us! Wishing we had a pool that day for sure.
