at my house today ...


... I'm enjoying flowers on the kitchen bench. It think flowers make a house a home.
... we've been to sport for little ones and learnt some rugby skills.
... we went to the laundromat and washed a huge woollen underlay that was too big for our washing machine. I haven't been to a laundromat for at least 15 years. It's more expensive than I remembered.
... while the underlay washed, I voted (yay for early voting centres when you can't vote on election day), we bought ingredients to make a christmas cake and I picked up a copy of the new Spaces book by Frankie magazine.
... we ate rice cakes with our favourite toppings for lunch.
... I read (skimmed) the new Space book during lunch and then ate a fruit mince pie - bliss!
... we played "adventures" with robots and ted the bear, and then made up stories to tell each other.
... we're both having a few minutes quiet time right now before we make dinner and wait excitedly for Mr Yardage to arrive home from work!

That's my day so far - just me and the Little Mister. What's happening at your house today?

Our king Proteas are all about to open too.
It sounds like a lovely day was shared with your boy.
We use the laundromat at the end of summer when we don't have much water left and it always makes me feel like I am in a movie for some reason. Hope the rest of your day is as lovely.

I agree too - it does sound like a nice day of getting some jobs done and having some nice times. I love flowers in my house too. I don't have them often enough. Maybe I need to plant some more in the garden so I can pick my own instead of buying them all the time. My boys planted some poppies and marigolds yesterday so will see how they go!

I read your post yesterday and you reminded me of rice cakes so we all had them today - thanks for the reminder! Thanks for the visit to your house. Lou.
