Home alone and taking stock

I'm only home alone until the girls get home from school and Tim arrives home from work but today is the first day since November last year that I have actually been by myself. It felt strange at first. It also felt strange to drive the car because I haven't done that since last year either. I'm surprised I didn't stall a time or two.
Bees love sunflowers

Now that I have had some time alone to think and wander around and take stock. I can see that I have some work to catch up on and there are a few jobs that I have let slide whilst in holiday mode. Lots of cleaning and tidying and de-cluttering... LOTS. Sheep to move. Lambs to sell. Compost to make. And so on. I need to make a list. A long list.

Vegetable futures

What I did do in between cappuccinos and tea breaks on the weekend was sow some seeds. Just one tray of broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts and hooray they are on the way up. While I love vegetables of all kinds and the summertime ones are a common favourite, brassicas are mine. Maybe because I love the cooler months so much or maybe just because they are delicious.

Right now I have to bake. Lunchboxes need something sweet tomorrow and there is only one way that is going to happen. So I'm off to make the sticky cinnamon buns that everyone loves so much and I'm not even going to eat any.

Ah Tracey, that sounds like my kind of quiet time. Love the holidays but there is a time where you need nothing in your head going on , just being and doing.

I know the feeling! i am just about caught up now and getting used to the new routine now kids are back at school. You've reminded me I need to get going with some veggie garden prep. Enjoy
