Order of the day

1. The kids are back in school after the mid-term break. Preparing lunch boxes, laying out school uniforms, chauffeuring and monitoring homework are once again in my daily agenda.
2. Countdown for hubby's 40th b-day, tomorrow: presents, greeting cards and other goodies are safely stored and await the midnight hour to be placed on hubby's nightstand, ready to be opened and savoured first thing in the morning. The house has been thoroughly aired and cleaned. Bright, fresh flowers embelish the dining room. The traditional leg of lamb - with all the trimmings - has been seasoned and is ready to be put in the oven. The birthday cake has been decorated. The pudding for tomorrow night's dinner still has to be made, however...
3. Countdown for Halloween, tomorrow night: front window has been spookily decorated for the eerie night of all souls. The kids will go out trick-or-treating with friends and their dad; their masks are ready for them to wear. I'll stay home, putting the finishing touches on the birthday dinner and giving out treats to the trick-or-treaters who come calling while my own are out.
4. Countdown for hubby's trip to Lisbon, the day after tomorrow: once again, lots of clothes and "stuff "to prepare...
5. Keep tuned: I'll try to post some pictures in the next couple of days!
