It doesn't take much

23 Jun 2008


I had the best day today.

Up early to bake some bread rolls for school lunches and for the worker.

Got the washing out early, kitchen tidy, beds made, house tidy.


Then into the playroom to boot up the computer and play some music.

Cup of coffee to enjoy and a doll to bring to life.



For the first time in forever I could play my music , as loudly as I wanted without any withering looks from the resident teenagers.

I could even dance, in my green silk trousers and purple sheepskin slippers without causing anyone any embarrassment.

Oh it was great.

I had so much fun.

The sun was shining, there was a decent wind blowing to get the washing dry, I had the whole day ahead of me.

I felt truly truly happy.

It doesn't take much does it.

  11. How lovely.

    The other day I waited until everyone was at work/school and then put Carole King on UP LOUD.

    (Not something I can do with them all here, due to the withering looks I get).

    (I still know every word to every single song on her album).

  12. Good evening Jenny
    What a delight..knowing that the housework is up to date & it's time to sing, dance & create.
