It's Friday! Yay! This week we're going to visit Damjana of loddelina.etsy.com in France. I'm a big fan of her bags, wristlets, pouches and more - the details are delightful!
7.45h - breakfast
My alarm clock is set to 7.15 but my children, Gaston (4.5) and Lily (2.5), always wake me up half an hour or so earlier. The tempo of our morning depends on whether it is a school day or not.
8.30h - at the school
On "green" school days we hurry up with dressing and having breakfast and we try to leave the house at 8.15. Gaston's école maternelle is on the hill above the town from where we admire a frosty, wintry view of Pontarlier.
9.30h - shopping
On "blue" non-school days I take both my children with me on my morning chores - every day we buy fresh milk, cheese, eggs and yohurt at the local fromagerie.
12.00h - lunch
Children love homemade pizza with sour cream, leek, goat cheese, lardons of bacon and black olives.
13.30h - back to school
Lily and I escort Gaston back to school in the afternoon and on the way back Lily falls asleep in her pram.
14.00h - siesta
Back at home I put Lily to bed and now I have some time for Loddelina!
14.30h - coffee!
I make myself a foamy macchiato and check my shop, blog and Etsy forums. If I have pictures to take, early afternoon is the best light for photography and later I can quickly edit the pictures before Lily wakes up and demands my attention.
15.30h - psssst, she is still sleeping...
... So I quickly do some sewing before it is time to go pick up Gaston from school at 16.20h
intermezzo: a view of Pontarlier
time between us coming back from school, snacking, playing, eating dinner, bathing and putting on the pijama, is a blur. Before I know it, it is 20.15h and time for bed. Yes, please, I am exhausted! - oh, bedtime for children...
21.30h - sew, mama, sew!
children are in bed and hubby is watching a game tonight so I retreat happily to my sewing corner...
23.00h - packing an order, yey!
I check my emails before switching off the computer and if there is an order to pack, I quickly prepare some labels and cards to go with it.
