Dear So & So

Dear Rain,
thank you for staying away all weekend (apart from the time you started, forcing me to pack away the paintbrush then stopped as soon as everything was away five minutes later!). Ant and I both appreciated being able to get 2 full days work done in the garden 🙂

Yours, a very grateful, Shell

Dear Wind,
you’re not being as helpful as the rain. You’re actually making a mess and if you carry on, something’s going to get broken. You’ve already knocked over our new arch that we haven’t had chance to secure yet. Thankfully, our new jasmine plants, that are going to grow over said arch, are safely stored in the kitchen.
I’m asking nicely, please go away!
Yours, a bit peed off, Shell.

Dear Children,
You’ve been loads better at breakfast time this week. You’ve been nice to each other, for the most part and haven’t taken all morning to finish eating and get ready for school 🙂
Mornings have been less stressful and you girls have even had chance to play for a bit instead of being rushed out of the door.
Your bedrooms, however, are another matter entirely!
We’ll discuss this further if the situation doesn’t improve soon 😉
Yours lovingly, Mum/Mummy xx

Dear Ant,
I really enjoyed spending all that time with you at the weekend, working together on our garden.
I’m really looking forward to our new ‘kissing bench’ to be finished, and to hearing KayCee’s giggle every time you mention kissing!! :oD
I’m sorry that I didn’t get the rest of the wood painted before Thursday….you’ve seen the motivation posts so you know why!
I love you my darling.
Your Shell, forever xxx

Dear Motivation,
please stop leaving me. My house needs cleaning, my garden needs doing, the laundry needs folding and putting away and you’re supposed to be there to help me get up from the chair and get it all done! Where do you keep running off to, that’s what I’d like to know?
Yours, the lady of the messy house!

Dear So and So...

    Good idea Instant Student….I bought some scones, jam and cream today so I think I'll use them as my treat tomorrow!

    Thanks for stopping by and sorry I didn't reply yesterday. I got the email but forgot to flag it to remind me to reply (my memory is really bad!). Take care 🙂 xx

    I hope your motivation stops by for a tad longer next time.
    Maybe you can lure her with a treat?

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
