Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. It was so good to see so many British Sports men and women do well this weekend at the Olympics, it has been amazing Sunday for Team GB. I am going to make sure I watch some events tonight as I did miss some over the weekend due to working and for some events being on so late. Nevertheless it hasn't stopped me from feeling proud and patriotic. Everyone should be proud of where they come from.
The football season has also started and it was great to see Gary Lineker in his pants presenting Match of the Day, which I watched on Sunday morning, not as nice as what he was back when he used to play football himself, but I still wouldn't kick him out of bed.
He was one of my pin ups on my wall as a kid, when everyone else had Take That or East 17 posters on their wall.
When my husband was driving me back home one Sunday after picking me up on route from work, a song from the 90's came on the radio from that era, which was going into the early 90's and always reminds me of that time.
See video below of this song, it was a One Hit Wonder, but a great song from that decade.
Today I did a bit of dusting of the Windowsills and some units in our bedroom as they do get dusty very quickly and with Henry's Hayfever and Eczema it is important to keep the home dust free as much as possible and my hubby does really help with that. He helped dust the living room and bathroom for me, so saves me a task.
I do think it is a lot easier when you can share the chores. Balancing work, home and parenthood can be tricky, but every little bit does help whether it is cleaning one item or area a day. I have stopped stressing over not getting everything done as it is wasted energy and I know I will get it done. I read in a book called Thrive (see my book reviews) a couple of months ago and it made a great point in that, no one is remembered for their cleaning skills or for the fact they managed to stack the dish washer every day but for their personality and value they added to people's lives. I just make sure that if I do get a spare moment to clean an area or a work top, then I will.
I did clean Henry bath toys today, an item on my list that was overdue and it is important that this is done as water can become stale and turn into mould if not careful. This can cause unnecessary odour and germs.
I waited nearly over and hour in the doctors as I was concerned that Henry cold was turning into a Chest Infection again, but it wasn't and so he is fine. I think he has a mixture of a cold and Hayfever like I had a few weeks ago.
I also caught up on some TV I missed over the weekend and today, so watched Dragons Den from last Sunday and Loose Women from today. I do like having that bit of time to catch up on my TV. I don't watch a lot to be honest, there are just some certain programmes I will watch when they are on, they are like two or three programmes.
Anyway going to end the blog here for the start of the week, as I have dinner to cook for my hubby and I, so have a good week everyone and I will blog again on Friday.
Many thanks for reading,
