Time

There’s nothing like having five house viewings in a month to make sure you spend time vacuuming and window cleaning that would otherwise have been spent pootling about on the internet!

I really do love having a clean and tidy house. It is also a completely decorated, all major work done, house, and we have really fallen in love with it again, and will be quite sad when it does sell. I am secretly hoping to get another summer here, as it has rained almost continually every summer since we moved here (2007), and this would be such a lovely garden to spend a summery summer in.

Today, I have some unexpected time, and no viewing to clean for. Preschool is closed due to there being no heating there on one of the coldest days of the year, so I am at home with a four year old. I will be trying to do a page or two of our Jolly Phonics book, if I can persuade him it will be fun. He has shown not a great deal of interest, but I am very aware that Mr 4’s sisters had started school by his age, so he should be capable of identifying the letter A. He can do it perfectly well on a Wii controller.

I meanwhile, sit on the floor, going ‘A, a, a, look, there’s an ant on my arm!’ or ‘I, i, i, I’m Inky the mouse!’ (those of you who have experienced Jolly Phonics will have the actions imprinted on your brains) whilst he looks on in bemusement. He’s probably thinking, ‘OK, calm down now, mum. Just put on Spongebob, then you can get back to your knitting!’
