Going to Pot

I had planned to spend yesterday afternoon deciding what vegetables to grow in the garden and plan a sowing rota (after reading Kethry‘s blog and realising that I haven’t done this yet!).  Unfortunately time disappeared… school rang at lunchtime to inform me that DS didn’t have any sandwiches and didn’t fancy any of the school meals, so I have to make his sandwiches and drop them off to him – I had run out of time in the morning and asked him if he could make his lunch which he often does when I’m running late, he managed to do all of his lunch but forgot the sandwiches – so this ate into my day, and then I found out that he hadn’t eaten them anyway as apparently he wasn’t hungry by the time I delivered them to school, therefore I put them straight into the fridge and he’s having them for lunch today. 

I also planned to get rid of my ironing pile yesterday, I don’t believe how long it took, it felt like it took all day.  However it wasn’t all lost since I managed to make some chicken stock from a carcass I had from jointing a chicken at the weekend.  I put some of the stock in the fridge ready to made a casserole with tonight and the rest I used to make some carrot and coriander soup which should feed me for lunches all (or most of) this week.  I also managed to vaccum downstairs and get dinner ready so I don’t feel like I was sat on my backside all day.

The same cannot be said for today however, I fed Izzy this morning, then got ready to go into town (had another Amazon sale on Sunday so needed to go to the post office) but needed to get the book parcelled up, then the washing out on the line, then the nappy delivery arrived – and I had to get from the neighbour since I was outside with the washing!  Eventually made it into town, got everything I needed and walked back – it was midday!!  Where did the time go?  Izzy was fast asleep in her buggy, so managed to get a cup of tea and load the nappies in the wash before she woke up for a feed.  I’ve practically just finished feeding her and so now I’m going to have some soup, hang the nappies on the line, then it will be 3 o’clock and time to pick DS up from school….. then time to start on dinner, then feed Izzy again…… argh!!  When will I get chance to sit down….
