Is it only Monday?

Eloise - I love this apron. I've been wearing it on and off all day and it's just so solid. You know, decent weight cotton and incredibly practical.

Wherethejourneytakesme - I'm not swapping bear for a mum. My late mother could drive a saint to drink, especially if she was let loose in the kitchen. Whenever bear has been sent out with someone else they always report that he had impeccable manners, well spoken, polite and was a fount of unexpected bits of information. Last time he got involved with someone scribbling the proof of something to do with prime numbers on a napkin in a restaurant (it's not just me who thinks he is bright). However he will say what he thinks, usually politely, and is very clear on what he wants and what he doesn't want. If he doesn't approve of something, you find out about it. It's unnerving, especially when he corrects you about science or maths or something.

Today bear didn't go in to school as he had a runny tummy. It wasn't good. DH had a day off as well, as he is using up the last of his annual leave. This meant that any housewifery I managed was a miracle, but it was lovely to spend time with them. We caught up with the Great British Sewing Bee and generally took it easy. Bear is getting too old to cuddle better, so we just took our time with him. I'm feeling a lot better and I've finally finished my second lot of antibiotics.

Eloise - it may be that a warm winter hasn't killed off bugs.  I've heard of quite a few people that have had similar bugs to me and they have all been flattened. I've had the windows opened, but it has been so warm out that it hasn't really had a chance to get rid of the bugs. I'm feeling a lot better, though, with only a few coughs, though I'm still shattered.

Despite all that, I've been clearing stuff out of the walk in cupboard. We are going to have to get the wiring sorted soon, so I've been looking at the stuff in there and asking myself whether I really want to keep it. There are loads of bits that I think would come in useful, but I'm wondering whether they are worth paying to store during a re-wire.  For example, I've got some of those curtain wires which I picked up at an extremely low price.  I can think of a few places I would like to use them, and they are useful bits, but are they worth paying storage or should I lose them and buy again only if needed? How about paint? I'm likely to pay to get the place decorated, so it seems a waste to keep the paint and I know there are places I can donate it. So far I've got three bin bags and a stack for the charity shop. It's a start, I just need to keep up the good work.
