This morning I was up bright and early as you can see. I’ve been getting up around 5am for the last few weeks. As usual I took my pain meds, had a cup of tea and watched youtube.
A bit later I painted my nails.
Amy was sick so staying home from school and Christy was headed off to Canberra for the Year 5/6 camp. She was so excited and happy about her Dad dropping her off at the school.
Unfortunately I still had to go to the school as I had uniform shop. After they left I had my shower and got dressed.
Then made myself some breakfast, which I ate while unpacking the dishwasher.
At 8.20am I headed off to the school.
It was busier than I’d expected, probably because of school photos next week.
After I was finished I headed to Aldi. I haven’t shopped here in over a year so it was interesting to see what new stuff they had.
I was especially happy at the price of the almonds. I usually pay around $17 per kilo and we go through heaps!!!
Of course, I couldn’t get many of my groceries here, but I did better than expected,
so next I headed over to Woolworth, just a few minutes drive away. Actually I could walk there quicker than I could drive. I was excited to see all these new teas… but I didn’t buy any.
And check out the size of these packets of clinkers. You’ll be pleased to know I didn’t buy any :-). They might be my fav. candy but they are chock full of nasties!
I was so tired by the time I reached check out….
and felt I deserved a yummy watermelon smoothie from Wendy’s.
I bought one for Amy as well and got the groceries into the back of the car.
Back home I found some guilty puppies….
Not quite the welcome home I had expected. And I know Bailey was the ringleader.
I quickly filmed the cold stuff for my grocery haul and got it put away.
Then I made a cup of tea and put my feet for a few minutes before making lunch for both Amy and myself. Mine was the pita bread with cheese, hummus, tomato and lettuce.
I got the rest of the groceries filmed and put away and before I knew it was 3pm and time to
go get Christy from school (Thanks to Debbie for picking up this mistake :-)). Back home I retreated to the lounge again as I was exhausted.
Shortly afterwards Nan & Pop came over for a visit and chat.
Then it was time to make a start on dinner.
While it was cooking I made up rolls for Kevin & Amy’s lunch tomorrow.
Kevin arrived home about 5.30pm with a gift from Germany – a prize I had won in a YouTube giveaway.
I rarely enter online competitions so when I do you know it’s something I REALLY want to win…. in this case some German chocolate!!! Thanks so much Constanze.
Time for dinner. Tonight we had mandarin soy pieces with brown rice – a really old family favourite (I used to make it with chicken which means I’ve been making this for more than 9 years!!!)
Finally it was time to get into my jammies (one of my favourite parts of the day) and watch some TV with Kevin.
We also watched a documentary on vikings while enjoying some strawberries with cream. Amy joined us but mainly read fan fiction on her ipad.
Around 9pm we headed up to bed and I managed to read a few blogs before falling asleep.
