 Welcome to my MondayπŸ‚
No Wobbly Work Wheel 🎑 for me.
Hubby is working from home,
And our kids...
Warm hug with brew.
I get the kids up to do their on-line learning.
Whereas hubby gets up,
I enjoy the warm bed for another hour!
After that, it's up up ↗↗↗
Let's explore the snow outside!
Put some bread out for the birds and gave them fresh water.
Coffee time!
Now to have a quick play with Kenny...
Cake goes in the oven for 1 hour.
One of my sons had a free lesson, and fetched my newspaper for me.
