In some crazy coincidence, the stars aligned and none of us had any place we absolutely had to be today. A couple of maybes popped up later in the week, but we stayed strong and said 'no thanks'. So after we picked up Miss Jazzy from her sleep-over and did the farm chores, the rest of the day was ours to do with as we pleased.
And we pleased.
It was slooooooooooow. Two of us never even got dressed. And we ate broad bean omelet for lunch and then pop corn and icy poles and ginger beer and peaches over the day. The girls watched a movie and some video hits and the smallest even had a nap. And we made beads and pottered in the garden, and picked some strawberries and did other odds and ends around the house.
It was all pretty cruisey.
It felt a bit like a battery recharging day. Like the calm before the next few weeks of storm. Like checking things off my what makes me happy to-do list. So much so that nobody had a shower tonight and I haven't even washed the school uniforms yet. Oh well. It certainly was a happy BEFORE have to kinda day.
Oh and the beads are one of the projects from Pip's cute magazine Good Stuff Guide. Have you seen it yet? It's full of ace people and projects and recipes and stuff to do and buy and make. And I've got a little list in there too. Go take a peek, you'll love it.
Did you have a fun day today?
Was it a recharge day?
Are you in the market for one?
Have you been making any cool crafty stuff?
Have you made these beads for necklaces?
I think we'll thread ours tomorrow, keep some for us and give the rest away to the teachers as prezzies.
Have a fabulous and fun week my friends.
