Now the question is how many times do I have to change my clothes in one day. There is the trip down to the bus with Number 2 at 6.30 every morning which is invariably chilly and during the winter it is easy to throw on the coat and scarf over the pyjamas and travel incognito in the dark down the road. However with the lightening skies in the morning one needs to dig around for a quick pair of tracksuit bottoms and jersey, and of course remember to either tie up your hair or at least drag a comb through it.
Then it is home again and after number 3 has been dispatched on her bus it is time to get changed for farming so that is often take off the jersey as it collects hay and find the sweatshirt and overalls combo. Then after farming there is the butchery which means changing out of farming clothes into something clean but suitable for the warm afternoon temperatures. Then there is the children to fetch again and then take to activities which means removal of the butchery clothes and putting on town clothes but also now the evening cooler temperatures have arrived that means refinding the jersey from the morning, which you hope has not been slept on by the cat, changing shoes again and finally we are ready for town. Then of course there are the pyjamas again.
I think that makes 5. No wonder there are so few hours in a day.
Here is a pic of a very new baby and mummy getting to know each other.
See you all soon
