So this weekend

I pulled all the furniture out and hoovered under it.
I cleaned my kitchen windows.
I finally emptied my laundry hamper and washed all the clothes, dried them, folded them and put them away.
I cooked an inordinate amount of fresh, wholesome food for my family to turn their noses up at.
I tackled the stair basket which has become the dumping ground.
I went through our paper work, recycled what needed to be recycled, shredded what needed to be shredded and filed what needed to be filed.
I changed all the bed linen.
I cleaned even the darkest crevices of the bathroom.
I ironed our clothes for the week ahead.
I did our shopping.
I stayed within my WeightWatchers points.

I didn't write.

Avoidance therapy anyone?

sounds like a productive weekend, even if it is an avoidance tactic. I wish I had your energy.

If you would like to avoid some more, you are more than welcome to come to my house. :)

I did no work all through December as I was too worried about my Alice freezing to death on the way home from school and now I'm afraid to write in case I can't remember how. I've been tidying cupboards in a bid to avoid my desk. Sometimes I think it'd be easier if I iced buns for a living.

God bless Michaela Harte (now McAreavey) and all who knew her, by the way. I thought nothing could be worse than losing a loved one to illness (my sister-in-law Carmel Owens died in June 2009 after a long illness, and ten weeks in a coma in the RVH) but what on earth can prepare any parent for this? A brutal murder over some holiday money? It is beyond comprehension.

God bless parents everywhere.
