Week in the Life: +1 - Monday

Last week, Ali Edwards invited everyone to join her in recording a Week in the Life. I really wanted to join in, but last week wasn't the right week for me. I was tired, I had a cold, my tummy was playing up and I could not put myself to recording anything, I just wished the days would pass quietly.

But it's Monday again, and I'm feeling much better, so I thought why not just start it a week later. So, here are my pictures for Monday:



And my notes:
  • 6.28 hrs alarm goes off
  • 6.30 hrs listen to the news on CapitalFM and the pun of the day from a newspaper article.
  • 6.40 hrs got up to have a shower.
  • Weighed myself, 64.4kg. I've done this every Monday morning for many years now, and have started again after the scales were delivered in the shipment three weeks ago.
  • Got dressed
  • 7.20 hrs Ruben's walks into our bedroom to have his tie tied.
  • 7.30 hrs Made sure Rebecca was getting out of bed and woke-up Renee.
  • 7.40 hrs Let Keith on of the builder's into the house to continue work on our downstairs cloakroom.
  • Had the usual: muesli, strawberries, raspberries and yoghurt and OJ for breakfast
  • Renee started with cheerios, but wanted butter toast instead.
  • Ruben and Rebecca had their usual: cheerios and juice.
  • All three were playing on their DS at the breakfast table.
  • Rebecca did her hair.
  • I did the dishes.
  • 8.30 hrs left to go to school.
  • 8.32 hrs dropped off Ruben and Rebecca at their school.
  • 8.44 hrs arrived at Renee's school. Traffic was okay this morning.
  • David is working from home today, having phone calls most of the day.
  • Back home I checked email and 2Ps Top 10 List and spoke to my mum on Skype.
  • Had coffee and cheesecake (which was leftover from Saturday).
  • Treated builders to coffee and cheesecake too.
  • 11.15 hrs Did the ironing and watched P.S. I love you for the second time to attempt to watch it to the end this time. Stopped it again, as I don't seem to get myself into the movie.
  • 12.40 hrs Stripped our bed to be washed and made the children's bed. Opened some windows for some fresh fall air.
  • 13.15 hrs Had toasted ham, cheese, tomato and rocket sandwich, carrots and cucumber for lunch.
  • David's got half an hour break off the phone and is re-installing the washing machine which had to be pulled out this morning for the carpenter to fit new skirtings.
  • Typing up my notes for today while eating my lunch.
  • Put away the ironing. Intentionally did a few things at a time to give myself some more exercise going up and down the stairs.
  • Added some friends on Facebook.
  • David made another coffee.
  • 15.02 hrs Left on school run. Traffic was light. Picked up Renee first, then Ruben and Rebecca.
  • Back home Keith had finished for the day.
  • Fruit for everyone.
  • Renee made her own warm milk.
  • Renee teary as she wanted to know what channel to put on the tele.
  • Ruben and Rebecca back on their DSs.
  • 16.30 hrs Put clean sheets on our bed.
  • 17.00 hrs Cooked dinner with a new recipe from GoodFood Magazine. It was rather disappointing and not worth repeating.
  • Tiler turned up to grout the tiles he laid in cloakroom yesterday.
  • 18.45 hrs Uploaded 2S4Y card to blog.
  • Renee played with her kitchen after dinner.
  • 18.55 hrs bathtime.
  • 19.15 hrs story and song time.
  • 19.30 hrs snuggled down.
  • 20.30 hrs my first yoga class in years and in fact my first activity since moving back to the UK. I felt really good.
  • 22.15 hrs Enjoying a cup of tea before going to bed at 22.45 hrs.
I shall be back tomorrow with pictures and notes from today.
