Jobs Day

Naomi, Miriam and I spend most mornings out the house and at a group of some sort.  It makes us all happy, it lets Naomi play and me talk to other adults.  Miriam normally manages a sneaky cuddle from someone too.  In fact we have a group we can go to every day apart from every second Friday.  Today was one of those Fridays.  Sometimes I declare it a day for going to the park but unfortunately my clean washing pile looked a little like this (in fact there was more lurking in the tumble drier) and so I had to declare it jobs day






It was a nice enough day to hang things on the line so Naomi and Miriam came out to help, although Naomi mainly played with her football!






There was also a small incident whereby Naomi tried to feed Miriam so random leaves





Overcome with tiredness, Miriam decided to have a rest from jobs day





It was decided that cooking would be the best thing to do while Miriam slept, Naomi helped

That's a Delia Smith book right out the 70s that she's studying there
Soon, though, she decided that "dressing up" in all the hats and scarves and Mummy's shoes was much more fun...

And also taking dolly for a walk in the pram


The next part of the day was better appreciated as we had some jobs to do in town, so off we went


You can just see Naomi there (next to the letters we went to post to Grandma and Granny) but now that she's bigger she does a lot of this too





When we got home it was lunch time so we had mexican wraps using left over chilli from two nights ago

Messy!
 Then we stopped for a bit of a dance and a play with a drum





The next conversation went like this

"Mummy is just nipping upstairs, wait here for me, I'll only be a minute"
"okay"

Ten seconds later this scene was found, despite not being allowed to climb the stairs on our own




Oh well, must be time for a snack after all this hard work...


Mummy was hoping for a sit down during nap time, but while Naomi slept, Miriam did this






(although, there was about 15 minutes of concurrent napping that allowed this blog post to be written!)

All in a days work!
