The Last Few Days

Nothing momentous had happened in the last few days, I've just been busy getting the house in some sort of order after the chaos of Christmas. I've finished tidying, sorting and cleaning Little Prince's room, just need Mr Messy to have a few hours to store to get one or two things fixed and it's completely done :-) It looks quite bare and Spartan, but that's how he wants it and if can cope with keeping it cleaner and tidier then it's better for everyone.
I also restarted my Thursday Craft Class where I managed to get most of Little Prince's name cushion sewn ready for his birthday at the end of the month.
Something pretty major did happen, I forgot! I met up with a recently bereaved Dad to arrange me looking after his two young children when he returns to work in February. Hopefully this extra bit of income will make things a little easier and we'll have a bit of spare money to get jobs done round the house, and my favourite buy some oil for the heating! The children are lovely, but despite their young ages are struggling with the loss of their Mum, so it's going to hard work getting them through this. That and the fact that all mine have large age gaps between them and there is only 18 months between the two little ones I'll be looking after, a while new challenge for me :-)
