== we made == a few small purses. Songbirds-purses, in fact. They are easy to sew and quite cute, but I think I will try out a few changes to the pattern today.
== the kids == had lots of fun dressing up, jumping on matresses, playing in the garden, racing about on the kettcar and looking after a stray cat.
== I listened to == some old audio plays; my son has kind of developed a passion for these stories :-)
== I read == Agatha Christy; I finished the book whilst lying on a blanket in the garden.
== in the kitchen == unhealthy breakfast with chocolate spread; mediterranean stew with homemade ciabatta for dinner (we eat dinner at lunch-time); chard braised in butter, salad of rocket, lettuce and wild herbs from my garden and little strawberries sweet like bonbons for supper.
== thoughts & plans == I am working on a second business right now. In the long run I hope it will make up half of my income. I love selling things and working on the computer, therefore I try to combine both. I realize that it is important for me to work as a childminder only half of the day, preferably morning till early afternoon. Having to be present to the children from early morning until late evening (with a special needs child) was slowly wearing me out because I never actually had a real break. I have to change this and create enough time for myself to wind down and also spend time with my own kids. Oh, the balancing of things - it is quite a juggling act!
