Happy Homemaker Monday

♥♥The Weather♥♥

It's warm but cloudy today, the rest of the week it's going to be mega-warm for this time of year, getting up to 28C on Thursday.  I'm pleased about that because I love to dry my washing outside, but I'm hoping it won't be too hot at night. Phew!

♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥

Not too bad, more positive than yesterday.  The lockdown and all the negativity in the news and on social media alongside some family stuff going on kind of got to me yesterday.  But today I feel a bit more positive.

♥♥On my mind♥♥

My girls and sorting out the next stage of their education.  We are hoping Lils can get into a local Sixth Form College and Bets needs to choose her accommodation for university.

♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥

Frozen berries with yogurt, sultanas and oats.

♥♥On my reading pile♥♥

A Wrinkle in Time - Madeleine L'Engle
Little Fires Everywhere - Celeste Ng
Abba's Child - Brennan Manning

♥♥On my tv♥♥

We finished Space Force with Steve Carrell last week - that was quite funny
We've been watching Emergence recently too
But the best thing we've watched was Little Fires Everywhere (hence me having the book on my to read pile) - it was such a good series, we totally binge watched it.
I'm also in the middle of watching the film Ground Hog Day, I've been enjoying watching nostalgic 80s and 90s films, I need some feel good fun!

♥♥On the menu this week♥♥

Tonight we're having bean burgers with chips and veg
Tomorrow it'll be Tuna Pasta Bake
I might do a chilli on Weds
Thursday is shopping day and I've not decided what to do

♥♥From the camera♥♥

I love dandelion clocks.

♥♥Looking around the house♥♥

I really need to get on with some decorating and spring cleaning and organising.
Today I've mowed the back lawn, vacuumed our bedroom and done some washing.

♥♥Chore I'm not looking forward to today, or this week♥♥

Cleaning the freezer, but it needs doing!

♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥

Read and watch some feel-good films.

♥♥On my prayer list♥♥

My husband and the stress he is under at work at the moment.
My girls and their future.
What God has got planned for the next season of my life.
Good health and protection over my family and friends.

Have a lovely week!

  1. Great books on your reading list! I need to get back and finish The Little Fires Everywhere series, I got distracted from it somehow (though having read the book, I do already know what happens). Hope you have a great week!

    1. The ending is just brilliant, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

  2. Love that photo! I haven't watched Little Fires Everywhere ye, will have to take a look. Hope you have a great week!

    1. It's a great series, so many twists in the plot!

  3. Groundhog day....such a funny film!

    1. I'm really enjoying it, I think Bill Murray is really funny.

  4. Sounds like you are definitely keeping busy and I love the books you are reading. Ground Hog Day was such a good movie. I think I need to re-watch some of the good feel good movies too, I tend to watch way too much news these days. Nothing there that's feel good. I hope you have a great week!

    1. Watching the news too much gets me down, I keep up with the main headlines in the morning then try to ignore it til the next day.

  5. These are definitely difficult times and hard to process or know how to feel. Trusting God gets me threw. So glad you visited me today, and met you, I think for the first time, at least in my recollection. Have a wonderful week. Keep lookin* up with your positive attitude this week. Blessings!

    1. They are hard times for so many at the moment. I enjoyed visiting your blog and thank you for visiting here too! :)

  6. I loved Little Fires Everywhere when I read it last year. It is a binge read for sure! So I am sure the series will be a binge watch. I am looking forward to watching it. Hope you have a lovely week!

    1. You'll love it!. And I'm looking forward to reading it! :) Have a lovely week too

  7. My humble suggestion... Avoid the so-called-news. It's aim seems to be, to point to all the horrors it can find. And if it can't find enough, to make some up.

    We need to protect ourselves from the so-called-news, as much as we need to protect ourselves from the Horrrible Virrrrus.

    1. I've stepped back a lot from social media and trying to just keep track of the headlines on the news now.
