Hi all - I tried not to be the first to write, and waited and waited! Well, the day is nearly done. It was a dull, drizzly day. The cows were in - that's a plus! We got DS to work on time - that's another plus! My challenge today was to tidy up an area in my bedroom and I achieved that. daughter got her schoolwork done, and we went to a theatre outing with some other homeschoolers. Then I left her with my friend to do her music practise and schoolwork and went to pick up the cherubs. Bio mum didn't have shoes or socks for them - Little Cherub was in a nappy (again!) and they were all a bit grubby. However, I bundled them into the car, brought them home and after fumigation they were all fine (just joking!) Amazingly, they got bathed (deloused), fed and into bed at a reasonable hour. They are usually pretty tired and stressed by the time we get to this point. I've rescheduled DS's work for tomorrow till Thursday as I won't have daughter here to mind the children when I would normally take him at 6.20am. It's too cold to be getting them up at 5.00am. Hope you all have a lovely day. I'm going to curl up with a book for a while before doing some ironing... and plan tomorrow's challenges!
