We've had a really nice day today. We took the children and their bikes down to the park and played for the morning. I managed to do a bit of cross stitching and now we've just finished a delicious meal ... a chick pea and sweet potato concoction followed by jelly and custard for the kids. The dishes are done and I am feeling content.

House keeping is not my forte. I have never been very good at keeping things tidy, and, with three very creative little mess makers in the house I don't seem to stand a chance. I console myself with the knowledge that they are well fed, at least! Every evening I decide tomorrow will be the day that I get my act together, then tomorrow comes and I rush around like a headless chicken, and somehoe manage to just maintain the status quo, never actually improving anything.

I am hoping that, by using my blog as a journal, I might give myself the accountability to actually get something done. I am hoping that, anyway. I LIKE being at home, and I dream of a home that would be a sanctuary for the people I love, a haven of calm and peace. I love reading the thoughts of other home makers, they all seem to have it together, and it's so interesting to hear how other women are doing it.

Tomorrow I will try to declutter and tidy the dining room. My uni materials are in a mess and the computer desk is chaos. I have little piles everywhere that need to find permanent homes.
That's my goal for tomorrow.
