H’s school was closed last Friday due to a rat infestation in the kitchens. He loved having a day at home to chill and I think it was what he needed as this is a long half term and an extra day’s break was very welcome. I think he was hoping that the rats would still be there on Monday morning, but it was back to school for him. This picture was taken of the sunrise as we walked down to the bus stop on the way to school one morning.
I had an invite this week to an event at a Toby Carvery. It was a lunchtime event and I took along a friend that I hadn’t taken to a blogging event before. She loved it and I must admit it did make me see what we do with new eyes. I was stuffed though as I ate my own dinner and then had to eat part of another during filming.
Back in January I think I agree to do a review of a private chef company on my other blog. For various reasons a date didn’t get set till now. When I agreed to it I loved the idea of a private chef (and I still do), but I hadn’t thought through all that was involved. It suddenly clicked that as a professional photographer was coming round, I’d need to clean and tidy up more than I would have done if I had been taking my own photos. And then there was the idea of a professional chef in my kitchen. So this week has been a cleaning, sorting and tidying mission. It’s been hard work, but some of it was well overdue. I even put a few items on eBay while I was at it and I’ve sold one already. Today I’ll be finishing off the cleaning ahead of party. I’m sure the food will be lovely, so it will all be worth it and I’ll have a clean and tidy house. It needed doing before I hosted this year’s big family Christmas anyway.
