I’ll ‘fess up now and tell you I’m writing this on Friday and then scheduling it for Saturday because that’s when – God Willing – some members of my family will arrive in Sydney. It’s been three and half years since we’ve been together so I’m really looking forward to it. That’s why today I have been baking – bread, cookies and savoury scones.

That reminded me that a generation or so ago women had specific days for doing certain jobs. I remember Monday was “Washing Day” in England when all the beds would be changed and all the laundry done. And I think Friday was “Baking Day” when all the bread, scones and biscuits were made.

Today I’ve combined both days into one – changing beds, doing laundry and baking! So, after I’ve polished my halo, I’m hoping to spend a few hours sewing this afternoon and make a start on the baby quilt I was planning.
