Day four of the blogtember challenge already and I'm having such fun this year!
The Blogtember Challenge is a wonderful link up organized by the lovely Bailey Jean of Brave Love Blog. In it bloggers are challenged to post every day for a whole month, Bailey Jean has provided writing prompts for each day (which you can read here.) Why not join in the fun? Don't blog? Why not join in on Instagram?
Well, honeys, as I write this I'm dashing around getting things together to dash to work but since this post will be scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday the fourth, that means.....
Catching Up With Laundry & Housework
I wash every day, it's my first homemaking task each morning. Hubby goes off to work, I go have my shower & dress, then my first load of laundry goes into the washing machine and I start my day with a smile :)
I'm sure someone very smart could work out why I get so much joy from laundry but all I know is I'm just so happy to do it :) It is of course proof, each time I complete any of my laundry tasks, that the arthritis hasn't beaten me yet and that's important to me, but I truly have adored laundry for as long as I can remember.
In my teens I washed and ironed my own school uniform each weekend for the week ahead and loved seeing the five designated hangers in my wardrobe, one for each day, hanging alongside my blazer and two school ties.
I work Friday and Saturdays so Sunday is my catch up day. If my shifts at work haven't drained my body batteries then laundry will be done, Hubby's shirts ironed and it'll all be done with a happy smile :) If shifts have left me drained and in pain then my laundry will wait till Monday.
According to the BBC this morning we're supposed to have a dry day Sunday so hopefully my laundry can be pegged outside yaaaaayy!!!
Organizing Outside On Our Little Patio
Now that autumn is officially here I'm hoping this weekend we (mostly Hubby, bless him, since he does all of the heavy lifting and moving of things - thank you sweetheart x) can try to get some work done on our patio before the weather changes.
We're planning on moving the three huge (and not very pretty) wheelie bins from just outside the back door to the other end of the garden. They'll sit against the garden fence by the side gate.
This gets them off the patio and also has the bonus of making them easier to wheel out on trash collection day. The patio will then be emptied of anything we can get rid of and will need weeding. Once that's done (sorry sweetheart! I know that's a tough job x) we get to do the fun part :)
The newly cleared & weeded patio will be home to a beautiful new garden bench we bought earlier this year. Because we've been working on inside our home we haven't managed to get it put together (it comes flat pack) and in place yet. It looks like this...
I so love the rose pattern in wrought iron in the back rest honeys :) Next Spring I'll fill lots of pretty pots with flowers to place around the patio to brighten it. I don't know how much we'll get done in one day but I'm sure we'll have a laugh while working on our patio :)
So there it is honeys, those are our current plans for our next day off together. What are your plans for this weekend? Till next time dear ones, smile lots and hug even more, huggles always xxx
