So it’s Sunday night again and I’m actually trying to be good and get this done in advance! What have I been up to this week? Well lots and nothing all at the same time! For the most part I’ve been sewing. I have attended a few things at the girls school too but every day I’ve either blogged or sewn with the majority of my day.
Monday was a sewing day for the most part. I had what I termed a “finishing day”, whereby I’d spent the whole weekend sewing and made three dresses, but most of them needed something doing in order to finish them. I had hemming, zips and even button holes to do and I got to use both the zipper foot on my sewing machine and also the button hole making zipper too. It was pretty great to learn something new.
The girls were with their dad after school and I always enjoy those days as it means I don’t have to stop what I’m doing and turn out for them at 3pm. Instead I got to sew pretty much all day and that was good. I did also do a bit of blogging so as not to fall behind but that was pretty much the sum total of my day.
Tuesday was a computer/blogging day. I caught up on a whole load of posts, emails and so on. I set myself up for the rest of the week too which is always nice as it means I know I have more free time to get what I want to do done. The girls got their school reports (which were awesome) and Megan finally finished the Harry Potter books. That was really the highlights of the day!
On Wednesday I dropped the girls off at school and headed into Lincoln. I needed a few bits but it was also nice to have a wander as I hadn’t been in a while. Afterwards I called at mum’s for a cup of tea and then I headed home. I didn’t get an awful lot done as I knew I was turning back out in a few hours but I did get some more blogging and sewing done. This continued on into the evening once we were home from school too.
Thursday was Lily’s end of school church service so after taking them to school, I walked with Lily’s class to church and back. Afterwards I headed home and since Mum was having the girls after school again, it was nice to know I had the whole day to get things done. I started working on a Pinocchio dress for Liv and while it was time consuming, over the next few days I got it done. That was majority of my day though and I don’t remember doing a lot else.
Friday was a lie-in, a trip into town, more sewing and finally picking up the girls from school. Spent the evening doing more sewing, made a pencil case and also wrapped presents for Lily’s friend Ciara, whose party was the next day. Saturday I dropped Lily off with Ciara, as they were going to the cinema and for lunch, and then Megan and I headed for the cinema and lunch together too. Afterwards we had a bit of shopping time but in the end we picked Lily up from Ciara’s around 3.30pm (though we didn’t leave till 4pm) and came home. Megan and Lily made some fimo bits and pieces while I sewed and then eventually it was bed time.
Sunday was a lie-in day too and also a chill day. I spent the morning being distracted by the girls doing their fimo and the afternoon sewing. Chris had hurt his leg so I was running around after him all day but I didn’t mind as I’m always at my nicest when I have someone to look after ;) We all had chicken fajitas for dinner which is a favourite in this house and then just chilled out. Chris and I ended up playing a silly game of Spot the Intro for ages and then eventually it was time to send Lily to bed. We had a bedtime story of James and the Giant Peach, which is our current read at the moment and then I came downstairs to watch Captain America with Chris. Megan went to bed shortly after and we just continued to watch the movie, though I was on my computer too!
Girls have three more days of school left before they break up and I wish they were done already. Can’t wait to have days when we don’t even need to bother getting dressed! Lots to look forward to this week but I’ll update you next week! Till then…
