A warm welcome to the two new followers who have joined us overnight!

Yesterday I had a day at home: I pottered around, doing all the things I needed to catch up on - 

I changed the bed sheets, and re made it with fresh-smelling linens, from my re-organised linen cupboard.
I was so pleased at the sight of the well made bed, and looking forward to getting into it last night - but the girls decided to watch tv in my room last night, so the poor bed was rather dishevelled by the time I got there at 11.30pm!

I caught up on three loads of washing, and got most of it hung in the verandah to dry.  Consequently, I now have a fair heap of ironing looking at me!

I sent the FH off to take the girls to town for the piano lesson, and whilst he was gone, I popped a chicken in the oven to roast, and for the first time this autumn, we had roast potatoes alongside it - lovely, crunchy, crisp roast potatoes - it was gorgeous!

I also had to spend some time yesterday finding things out after a meeting with the Head at school on Wednesday - there were some issues that we needed more information on, so I did some digging on the internet and found some policies and advice.

I made some phone calls - much less glamorously than this, though!

And then last night, for a couple of hours whilst the FH was watching tv, I indulged in some genealogical research - and was delighted at the progress I made.  I found some interesting situations - divorce in the 1930s, workhouse babies, and lots of new relatives kept popping up.

All in all, yesterday was a good day spent at home, and I enjoyed myself!
And not a penny spent...
