Day five was absorbed by family admin tasks. There a slim possibility that our family will be able to join DH on a business trip at the end of the month, and so I spent most of the day shuttling between the passport office, school and home. The applications are done now (despite me taking along my current passport, not the one I had when the children were born. I can't even remember what I did with my old one - surely I would have regarded it as unnecessary clutter, and destroyed it? Anyway, I digress.)
I did manage to print and enlarge a pattern and dig out some fabric. I'm thinking a new spring handbag would be nice.
