Another week has begun (still think of Sunday as “weekend”) and this weekend seemed to fly by! The free Japanese lessons at the community centre started up again on Saturday. I had applied and was meaning to go, but ahhhh, just seems to cut out so much of my weekend time. Weird, because I technically don’t “work”, but weekend is my chance to get things done while hubby is there to help out with watching the children.
I am still de-cluttering, but quite frustrated. Wish there were charity shops here. There are lots of things that I don’t want/need in my house anymore, but hate to throw things away that other people could get use out of. Books, hardly ever worn shoes, DVDs. Then I remembered that the city hall has a free English library where they take donated books. So yesterday, I piled all of my read and likely never to be read again books, and filled one of those paper Ikea bags. Then realised it was a Sunday and there wouldn’t be anyone to take them *sigh* So put them in the car ready for when I could face carting a heavy bag of books with children in tow.
Hannah is off nursery today. She has a cold. Usually I would let her go, because she is still up for playing, but everyone is paranoid about swine flu, so I kept her home. Now she is bored, oh dear, where to go? Too hot for the park, too snotty for the indoor play area. Either to city hall to take the books (what fun!) or to K’s Denki to look at new rice cookers (yay for me, bit of a yawn for the children..). But then, children can have fun anywhere, right? At least the age that mine are 🙂 Books and rice cookers it is then! Bye!
