As a reluctant hausfrau since we returned to England, I keep busy with the family, dog and house. I recently spent part of the day nosing through shops looking for some cute holiday pyjamas with matching booties for the 15-yr-old. She sure does love wooly jammers to wear in the winter months. Then I returned home to bake her some lemon and blueberry bread. Best part about not teaching is that I can schedule everything on my own timetable since I don't have to work in cooking, cleaning, carpooling, shopping, appointments, etc around school hours.
