It’s been some time since I did a day in the life post, seeing that I do so many in video format, but I still it’s a good record to have in photo format, and for those of you who don’t watch YouTube :-).
I actually managed to sleep in till 6.30pm (though it was still dark) and was pleased to be feeling a little better this morning.
After Kevin & the girls headed off at 7.30am, I got on with doing my daily essential jobs. I fed the bird and put him outside…
and strangely enough found Bailey lying in the garage….
I made our bed and finished off the girls rooms….
Showered, dressed and actually put on some makeup. Was so nice doing something as normal as makeup.
It was shaping up to be another hot day (the weatherman didn’t get memo that it’s supposed to be Autumn) so I watered the pot plants…
and got barked at by the puppies….
It had started sprinkling but I wanted to do my shopping at Figtree, so hoped it wouldn’t get too heavy.
I visited a few clothing shops, but didn’t buy anything, before going to the new Organic Shop. They have SOOO much stuff that I felt a bit overwhelmed and didn’t end up buying anything. I need to go back another time with a list as I’d really like to support the shop.
I did my main grocery shop at Coles. Loved the scoop & weigh station they have – wish our Coles had one. Unfortunately they didn’t have the products I was hoping for (that my Coles have stopped selling 🙁 ).
I was pretty tired after this – it doesn’t take much to tire me out these days. Back home I unpacked the groceries and put them away in between rests.
Eventually I got the energy to make up some lunch, using one of my pre-prepared salads (I’ve been making up 3 at a time, and it’s working out so well).
To this one I added falafel, hummus & pineapple. Yum.
After lunch I worked on editing my Summer Favourites video.
The girls were going into town for a bit after school, then Athena & two friends were catching the bus home. Kevin was picking up Christy (and dropping her friend home). Bailey & I got to the bus stop a bit early, so I decided to go and wash my car. I must have been feeling a whole lot better today as this is the most I have done in WEEKS!
Athena rang to say they had arrived just as I was finishing off the car. She had 4 friends (from her old school) over to play some games (2 slept over) so I prepared a mashed potato bar for dinner (thanks to Heather Bruggeman & her Whole Food Kitchen class for this fabulous idea. It went over so well and I had very few leftovers. I’ll definitely do this again.
With the girls at the kitchen table, Kevin and I camped out in the loungeroom to watch a movie and enjoy our dinner.
