Home alone!

I'm home alone! What a treat! fter a long summer wth hubby and the kids around all the time, it is finally back to normal. Hubby's at work- he should have been on an oilrig in the NorthSea, but he is at the office in Stavanger. And he'll be away for two weeks. The kids are back in school,already in their second week. 5th,7th,9th,and 10th grade. The house is quiet, it is only me and the cats.
I cherish these mornings. Being able to do whatever I want for a few hours. No one asks for attention.No one needs help with the homework RIGHT AWAY, MUM! I sit down with my cup of tea and my knitting, listen to the radio and watch the everchanging view. We don't need curtains- we have a new view several times a day. The rainbow showed up Monday. It looks like we might have a pot of gold in our seahouse!

Well, I'm off to drink that cup of tea-it is all ready. And then there is some casting on to be done. I actually have a couple of finished items too, but they need some blocking first...

Have a lovely day:-)

I remember those days, although hubby never worked "away" like yours does. He came home every evening, but I always had the house to myself until he and the kids came in.
I miss that, now I get up every morning and go out back to the office and tend to all the mundane chores that goes along with managing an office.
I tried to comment on your other post about the random things but my 'puter would not let me. Oh, well.
How is Tussi and Mr. Black doing? You haven't posted any pics of them in awhile.
Have a great day!!
