this is not a back-to-school post
Youngest started back in Year 10.Yay. Eldest doesn't start university until March 4. I am really looking forward to having my Thursdays and Fridays home alone once more, as I haven't been home alone on those days since October. Not that the nearly 19-year-old is a problem. I just like to have the house with only me in it sometimes. No, no mother-of-the-year here.
It is the end of the month and I don't think I've bought anything second-hand except for this jacket ($12) from Savers in Brunswick last week. It's a wool blend and fits beautifully around the arms and shoulders. I'm picturing a brooch on it to fasten it on a cold day.
Speaking of cold, the temperature has dropped and I'm hopeful of some rain later. The garden is parched.
Right now I'm going to make a cup of tea and hopefully finish my latest book ( which is WONDERFUL) while ignoring the dirty upstairs bathroom.
