After our weekend in Adelaide, I have been spending a lot of time catching up on washing and housework.
Steve and the other children got home before Tom and I and managed to make the house look like it hadn't been cleaned for a month. The lounge/dining room and kitchen are looking good now but all the bedrooms still need more organizing. It is surprising how an interruption to our routine can make the house seem so messy. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have most rooms back in order and will be able to start my daily routines again on Monday.
We only have one week left of school for the third term. We will have two weeks holiday and then have the last term for the year. I am starting to prepare for Christmas. I usually sew an outfit for each of the children so need to start early. This year is the first year having some at home so they may not be as surprised this year.
The weather has started to warm up and we are getting summer clothes out. I love this time of year. The days are sunny and warm and the nights are not too hot to sleep. I also like the longer days and sitting outside in the evenings.
