I get asked a lot what I ‘do’. It ranges from a ‘oh my goodness your a stay at home mum, what on earth do you do all day?’ to ‘so what do you do’ an obvious question to my career. And everything in-between. No to mention the usual ‘so what have you been up to’? when we see friends and aquaintences.
Now my close friends, and anyone who knows me will know that between music, swimming, gymnastics, play school, playdates, chores, quiet time and ‘mama and me’ time I try and fit in crafting, house decorating (ok, that one I ‘try’ to do – the unfinished toilet wall edges will attest to my lack of follow through) as well as sewing and the garden. I’m not intending this post to be defensive, or a justification for being at home, simply a run down for those who really do wonder what we get up to 😉
So today is Friday and this week I have ..
Run twice, made pie, gutted the pantry, sprayed frames, hung new prints in newly sprayed frames, made brownie, wall papered Moo’s birthday dollhouse (ignore the bumps, they flattened out) sewn a dress, cut and fixed in place a old broom handle for a hanging rail in madams wardrobe, felted soap, made (and ate!) cake, re-stuffed ‘sheep’ (1 pillow and 3 sofa cushions) sewn trousers (love those little patches by the hem, just LOVE them), sewn a 3rd birthday pressie (little picnic quilt)
Not to mention music on monday, swimming and groceries on wednesday, 2 playdates, a couple of casual afternoon tea parties and lots and lots of trampolining!
The garden hasn’t really got a look in apart from some watering!
