Oh yes that day has arrived - 2 boys despatched back to school with slightly holiday brain mode still switched on - hopefully by the end of the day they'll be back into learning mode!! Even MrVV has deserted me today and gone off to work in his warehouse. Oh the sound of silence - bliss. I can hear a clock ticking and a siren in the distance!!
We've spent the last few days slowly getting back to normal. Christmas has been packed away with the exception of a few outside lights which will be switched off tomorrow (12th night). New school items have been bought & labelled and bags emptied of old wrappers & drink bottles. The dreaded alarm clocks have once again been set and we're slowly getting used to routine again.
We did manage our walk at Southwold on Monday - it was surprisingly quiet there. Here's a pic (not a great one) of little son and me - as you can see - I won't be able to call him little son for much longer;
I achieved something else on Monday - I managed to book myself a stall at a fair at the end of February. Its run by Greenpeace and the few times I've visited its been really busy and friends who've had stalls there have been successful. I've decided as its an 'Eco-friendly' event I shall try to make everything I want to sell from existing supplies - a stash busting event! Rummaging through bags/drawers I've been quite surprised at how much stuff I have so I don't think it will a problem.
I was on my way out a little while to refill the bird feeders - it seems its not just the birds who've been feeding - this little fella - who've we nicknamed 'Fatso' has kept us entertained over the hols as he tries to launch himself at the nuts. Typically I didn't get a pic of him dangling pretending to be a blue tit - he landed just as I took the photo!!
Right - I'd better crack on - washing machine to empty, floors to wash, dinner to plan and a CS shift this afternoon too. Oh the joys of back to 'normal'.
See you soon
