A day In My Life

We had a early start today, up at 4.30 this morning to get Cassie off on her school trip. Her grade 7 class are going to Sydney then to the snow and on to Canberra to go to Parliament House. What an exciting time for a young girl. The bus left from school at 5.30a.m She should be in Sydney now..........

Hubby was able to take her up as he had to go to finish working on a truck. He doesn't normally work on Sundays except for trucks and taxis, there are no days off for them.
I went back to bed for another sleep until 8a.m I love sleep in on Sundays.

Then it was time to get the rest of the gang up.
Breakfast was just fruit and cereal this morning quick and easy...Then time to get dressed for Church. As we worship in Toowoomba we leave at 9.30 for a 10.00 service.
All in the car and time to go!!!!!!!!! Flat battery and guess what the auto electrician husband was not here aghhhhhhhhhhhh. Not to panic! as there is only 4 of us we can fit in the other car. Got to church in time, had a guest speaker from England Adrian and Bridget Plass this morning and we really enjoyed them. Have read many of their books so I enjoyed putting faces to them.

12.30 And home for lunch. Just 3 children and my-self the table seems quiet. Clean up lunch dishes and out to the garden to check on veges that were planted yesterday. All looking well.

William has a garden expo at prep tomorrow so we had to make vege men. Now I would have made potato men but when you are a 5 year old with your own vege patch and the only thing growing are shallots and beet root well......... Meet beetroot boy and shallot Sam not bad for a little boy.

I love Sundays I tend to potter around. I cleaned down the veranda and watered the plants out there. Then I remembered that I had bought some pansy seedlings for some pots on the veranda so I got them all planted up.
3p.m Hubby is finally home two little boys and one wife was very happy to see him. Sat and had a cuppa on the nice clean veranda, then told him about the flat battery.
Hubby went to put the battery on charge and I sat down and had a nice catch up on some blogs.
5p.m Looks like rain but I'm not taking any chances went and watered the new seedlings and clivas. Did some weeding and general pottering around.
6.30p.m Tea time we had fettuccine with mushrooms and bacon Alanahs favorite tonight. Cleaned up tea things and got boys through bath.
All school clothes ready for tomorrow.
7.45 Boys to bed............
8p.m Time to do my blog.
This is the second time I have joined in A Day in my life. Go to her blog and check out the others that have joined in.
I wish I could work out how to link to other sites total computer clutz.......
It's raining!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!A nice steady rain my veges will enjoy it...
Well I'm going to sit down and watch a movie then off to bed ready for another week.

Thanks for joining me today.


  1. It's nice to "meet" you through Little Jenny Wren's blog. Thank you for sharing your day. I heard Adrian Plass speak for the first time last month, having read lots of his books - he is fun to listen to isn't he? With a way of using laughter to drive home the truth.


  2. Sounds like you had a lovely day (in spite of the flat battery). I don't think I've been to your blog before so I'm off to have a look around.


  3. Our Clivea are flowering too. Nice to hear of your day. The cup of tea sounded welcome.

  4. Beautiful sitting porch. Hope you're able to enjoy it once in a while, Mandy.

  5. Thanks for sharing your day. I'd love to come and sit on your porch!

  6. Thanks for letting us have a peek at your day. Your verandah looks very peaceful and relaxing.
