Happy Homemaker 2023-05-29

Good morning

Work - don't want to talk about it - just too much

Health - my ibs/ibd still not getting better.  had to stop fodmap tests until it is better.  Tired.

We had grandkids for supper and to spend the night on Thursday night.  DH drove them to daycare Friday morning.

Saturday my sister, bil, and parents arrived for lunch - dh had made chicken pot pie.  We left around 2:00 to go to ds's house where dd, boyfriend & 2 children had arrived for lunch too.  Spent the afternoon outside with the kids and had supper there (celebrated dh's 27th bday at the same time).  DD slept over there , while sis, bil & parents came back here around 9:30.

Sunday, everyone met here for breakfast and they all left around 11:00 am.  Was nice to see everyone.  

Let's join Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom .  

The weather

Warm temperatures last weekend but today is 19C very windy and north wind.  cold this morning. Should warm up during the week... and then be too hot with 30C ;) 

Looking around the house
Lots to do.
