A Quietly Productive Day

Today I have.....
* weeded the front garden,
* pruned the jasmine that was threatening to keep us captive, Sleeping Beauty-style,
* cleaned all the spent pots, ready for autumn bulb planting,
* helped the Beautiful Girl build a frog habitat,
* weeded and scrubbed the patio,
* cleaned the airing cupboard, "rationalising" the towels and lining the shelf with scented, rose-sprigged liners,
* made salted caramel popcorn (and munched my way through it watching Toy Story 3),
* baked a batch of fork biscuits with the Beautiful Girl,
* made dahl, topped with crispy spiced onions,
* finally written a blog post, albeit a boring one,
* addressed all the invitations for Beautiful Girl's birthday party,
* supervised bath time and read a chapter of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" aloud.

No wonder I'm tired. Bath, book and bed await....


  1. What a wonderful day Jo....much love Helen xx

  2. Quietly productive days are my absolute favourite kind. I like the sound of salted caramel popcorn very much.

    You asked about the grey paint on our front door - sorry it's taken to so long to get back to you! It's by dulux and we had it mixed up, that's all I can remember now, but tomorrow I'll go into the garage and write down the name and post it as a reply to your question in my comment thread. Hope that's ok.
