A Week in the Life of Me - Friday

Thank you for your comments saying you are enjoying this. I was worried I had bored you all to tears, but I think I can blame Blogger for the lack of comments earlier in the week.
So, here we are at the end of the working week, and I have a learned quite a lot from writing down everything I do. I'll carry this on for Saturday and Sunday, if for only for contrast, and update on lessons learned over the weekend. Next week is half term, but the following week I will try to take as many photos as possible so I can put words and pictures together in a mini book.

It's really interesting to see which details change and which stay the same each day :)
