Then it is off to the kitchen to make my brekkie taking my brekkie downstairs to the office I fire up the computer to check my emails.While I'm waiting for the computer to start, do it's virus update etc etc I load the washing machine which lucky for me, the laundry is right next door to the office.
Office work completed (and far to long reading blogs) I then get to escape to my garden for a little, not that I did anything much just meandered, pulled the odd weed checked some pots and watered the cuttings I had potted up on the weekend. Then it was off down the back. My darling dogs never go to the toilet in the house yard so every morning they get let down the paddock to do their thing. Absolutely fine by me but probably to much info for you. While we are down there we take the chooks the scraps from yesterday,& check their grain and fresh water. At the moment they are having their water with apple cider vinegar all my animals have 3Dy's a mth on this except my horses that have it daily.
Oh quick yet again I spent to much time down the back, oh well my old log seat really does beckon. It's even worse if I happen to go down there with a book. Back to the yard. Washing is finished, hung out. DD is up & getting ready she prefers to make her own lunch so mum checks it's O.K- yep got the last of the Brownies DS will not be pleased. yummy!! even if we did manage to burn the edge(got distracted in the garden again)
Got DS up he is having a treat of tuckshop today.DD leaves for school bus that travels to the next town.It's now 6.45 get what house work, cooking etc I can get done now as I have to work today only me & DS left now so we enjoy some quiet time together before all to soon we have to go & drop him at his school. That done back track all the way almost pass my house again only bypassing it by 50m and off in the other direction to work. Some mornings would love to take the 50m detour back to my house for the day and just potter around but I guess trillions of other working mums think that to.

We had a marquee table in the guest area at the races which was very nice as we had all drinks & food supplied as well as access to our own Bookmakers, Bar, T.V's & the most important cleaner toilets without line-ups.LOL!!
We had a wonderful table of about 14 people all us friends ranging from the young, those that think we are young and should no better, right up to Pop whose near 80. Everyone had a fantastic time. Two of my fave friends reached the semi-finals of the Fashions of the fields which was good fun as they had only entered as it was a "Pink Ribbon Fundraiser" for Breast Cancer.
A really great week end was had by everbody, being able to catch up with everyone was fantastic we can't wait to do it all again soon, come christmas.
Hope your weekend was special too!!

By the way these ARE breakfast dishes AND it is 5pm
Truly though these are the messies that are in my house and a lot of other busy mums homes at times, but when I sit down to blog I want to show you the nice things, I want things to be perfect just for that short time even if I know and you know in reality they are not.We also know that friends & family are more important than mopped floors & neatly made beds but I don't think it is necessarily a bad thing that we do not want others to see this, for the most part we are simply showing we have pride and self esteem in ourselves when our homes are clean, our families are happy and their is a nice meal on the table. It at least tells us we are somewhat getting there.
This garden bed has been sitting way to long & could be producing
more homegrown yummies right now!!
Well I suppose you can tell what is more important to me at this very moment can't you?? or I guess you wouldn't be reading this post. LOL!!
Until next time remember happiness is more important than perfection which is never achievable when you will just then rise the standard.
Anyway it's dinner time & I'm off to do breakfast dishes.
I wonder who else is up for the challange?????
Do all you Aussie bloggers remember this T.V show?? It was one of my favourites when I was younger. A real Australian classic I would love it to come on again so my children could see it then again they are probably to old for it now-but I would still watch it.LOL

Between the crosses, row on row,

Anyway these are the five steps that take our family to slumber land each night. All the bedrooms are up these five steps totally separate from our living area, which can be a good thing when you have visitors at 4 in the Arvy and you still haven't made the bed yet. So far this post sounds totally exhilarating doesn't it, what with unmade beds & crunchies on the floor ho hum that's life (at our house) At the top of the stairs you can just see our cow hide mat.
So sometimes when there is a power blackout I really can believe I lived a hundred years ago as I pick up my candle complete in brass holder and say I'm going up stairs to bed!! Okay I'll rephrase that it sounds too romantic & old world. How about this - Kids if you don't get upstairs to bed now I'm going to..................
Thanks for visiting anyway I'm going up to bed- CAROLINE xxoo

Look what darling daughter bought me she said as soon as she saw it that it was for me. It's really heavy so hope I never drop it on my foot it will be a broken toe for sure. I think it is cast iron so it will most likely rust which I don't mind -more character.
At the moment it is sitting on my sink with a cake of sunlight soap in it . In my house I do tend to move things around all the time so you will probably see it in the laundry next week or in the garden under a tap.

Oh and then there is the minority group consisting of me and really only me & maybe a few other odd bods. The simple fact is I really don't care because I picked my son up with his eyes sparkling with fun, to hyper to sit still in the backseat on the way home due to an overdose of sugar, telling me who did this & that, and how much fun it was to take your shoes off & slide around the old halls polished floors with just your socks on.
