It’s Friday of the longest (shortest) week of the year. Are you feeling like that too? I always get so confused after a long weekend, moreso after an Easter one, and while it’s been short its been very long thanks to the school holidays.
My week has looked like this:
With gorgeous sunny days and holidays it feels like this is all I have done. So much washing! And with visitors after the long weekend there has been extra linen and the like. Honestly, it just never ends. IT NEVER ENDS. Lucky I really don’t mind it…and it looks pretty good to me.
We’ve had a very quiet time this week. Social outings have been to the supermarket! Lots of time at home in the sunshine, pottering about and just hanging out. Maggie hasn’t let me out of her sight.
I’m slowly getting back into the swing of home life, albeit looking very much forward to being able to get stuck into work again on Wednesday when school and routines are back. I’ve been raking leaves and sweeping like a crazy woman, because sometimes there’s nothing else for it.
And just in case you think it’s all roses over here, I have to tell you that last week when we got back (or maybe was it the week before?!) we had to get our central heating replaced from last year when it finally turned its toes up. Expensive! Anyway, while they were up in the roof I think they disturbed a small furry animal who may have taken up residence in our roof. And it escaped into a wall cavity. Where it died.
Oh dear GOD THE SMELL OF DECAYING SMALL ANIMAL. It’s in our bathroom, so contained. But it’s bad. And there’s not enough Doterra oil in the world to make it better. We just have to ride it out I guess. It’s not pretty.
So for now, I’ll keep washing, keep opening the windows, keep hugging Maggie and keep producing food for the big two. Holidays hey?
Anyone got a tip for the smell of dead animals in the wall?
What have you been up to these holidays?
Those with kids back at school, tell me about your productive days…tell me everything!
