How's 1/2 term going for everyone? So far so good - lots of lie-ins and just relaxing here with a smattering of housework and homework mixed in.
This morning was spent trying to fill the ever-emptying cake & biscuit tins - a task that needs repeating rather to often sometimes. Fortunately this time I gained a small & willing helper - No2 son Will.
Here he is hard at work making ChocChip Muffins - something he can now do without any really help from me;
Please excuse the washing in the background - its just not drying outside at the moment - not enough breeze or hours of daylight!!
This afternoon the boys cleared off out on their bikes for a few hours - think they called in to visit a couple of my sisters and my grandparents. Mr VV was out so I had the house to myself. I settled down to do some more festive swap sewing when it all went rather dark - the power had gone off :( I did the usual thing of checking fuses and even managed to locate a rather complex main switch in the garage but nothing worked :(
So instead of sitting here feeling sorry for myself and being in need of a cuppa, I hunted out the camping stove and kettle :) Even dragged out my festive mug for the occasion.
About 1/2 an hour after I'd gone to all this trouble power was restored!
Enjoy the rest of the 1/2 term week folks. Suppose I need to get organised and find a pumpkin to carve - need to buy one as the ones I tried to grow got eaten by slugs :(
