I have realised that I smile whenever I hoover the stairs, but not the upstairs. I once read that "a ship is known by its boats". Handy when you only have 5 mins to spare.
I fed the children home-made soup and bread and boiled eggs from our girls. Smug is not the word.
I have stopped having all my pretty tea plates away in cupboards, and am using them everyday. They give me great pleasure, which I suppose is whole point of having them in the first place. Easy to forget that bit though.
