Here we are another week gone by and we are speeding towards May. May is such a lovely month, winter is coming and hopefully some rain, the nights are really cooling off and the days can be bright and sunny or blurry with rain, either way they are good.
Welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays Link Up. I hope you have all had a good week and that you will face this week remembering to focus on God first and other stuff second.
I have had a quiet week at home, and didn’t achieve any of the sewing I wanted to do, but we did get all our school work and music practice done.
Our younger two children are playing a duet in the local eisteddfod in 5 weeks and they have worked hard to get the music together. We achieved this and now they are working at perfecting it and listening to each other. It sounds just wonderful and when I work it out I will put it up here for you all to see.
The children picked some more tomatoes and I did notice some more out there today so they will pick them tomorrow but I don’t know how many more we will get, but we will pick them happily.
The were quite a few red ones and a bowl of green ones that I hope will turn red. They look good anyway.We spent some time with our friends Mr and Mrs H this past week, enjoying a quick meal together before the men had a meeting. I then sat with Mrs H and we chatted away for a few hours.
We discussed everything from schooling (she was a teacher) to cooking and recipes. She generously lent me some games that she had made years ago for her class that encourages reading and memory work. The children were excited when we brought the box inside and I am sure they are going to enjoy them this week.
They are going to join us for tea later this week on their way home from Mr H’s specialist appointment. Please remember them in your prayers as they face more testing, and scans.
We have had roaming piglet problems this past week and they seemed to always head for the main road. We had numerous drivers stop in to tell us and we finally managed to corral them all and get them sorted. This did take all of us out there standing in strategic places to stop them getting out. They are now happy and settled with their mothers and are secure in their pen.
Here they are having a good feed, I just love the way that stack in.
It’s been quite a cold weekend but my husband was able to get some work done on his work vehicle and the children were able to give him a hand, feeding wires etc.
There seems to be a great pleasure that comes from helping Dad out and being with him.
Okay that’s enough, onto the link up.

Thank you to everyone for stopping by and linking up, I really appreciate it and enjoy reading your posts.
This week coming is another quiet one for me and I am determined to get some sewing done and I am going to take some advice from Tracy at Our Simple Homestead and her Step by Step Cleaning Routine to try and keep the house in order. This was a great post and gave some great advice.
I hope you all have a great week and that God really blesses you all. May you be able to focus on Him and give your heart over to Him daily.
