The Many Weeks That Were… 6.18

November 7th, 2013 · 4 Comments

It has been weeks and weeks since a week that was post, our poor readers deserve one!!! What can I say, we drew to the end of winter and hoped for spring and it never ever came. I could say we had unprecedented rain and winter seems to lag on forever, but actually the weather has been the same as usual, and our staying power at enduring winter has been a little limited!!!

And after another rainy day today… we have declared it the longest winter ever – no we do not have documented evidence… just a feeling that this is November and we should be swimming every day by now!!!

There have been the usual, chores…

    Agh. Sock sorting is just about my no.1 most disliked chore!!

    Oh Zoe, I have a secret weapon for sorting socks – it is called “very little people love to help with housework.” I have no idea what one does when you run out of little people, except to hope and pray by then that my older people will be totally responsible for things like laundry!!! Hope your very exciting weekend is fabulous, looking forward to reading all about it!!!
