  1. Fascinating! Us Mommies simply must have our routines in order to have time to ourselves and not go completely insane! I can see quite a few similarities in my own daily routine even though my work is quite different to yours. I know some find routine a bore but I thrive on it, I think the key is to schedule some time for doing the things you love otherwise it would be drudgery.
    Thanks for sharing Alison, I've really enjoyed your daily posts this year, it must be hard work to keep it up but, us readers get so much pleasure from your writing, please know that I for one am so grateful.

  2. Oh how lovely your life surely is Alison! and so well deserved,you work very hard at making it so,you have the cleverest way of making it all sound,well……scrumptious!

  3. I loved reading this, your life really does sound so scrumptious. I so wish I could get myself as organised, sometimes I think I need to personally fly you here to whip my disorganised backside into perfectly scrumptious and harmonious vintage housekeeping shape lol. Megan xx

  4. How wonderful! As my own routine has been somewhat shattered by the renovation of our new house (with me as project manager?!?) and the disruption and downright invasion that involves, reading your post and remembering how lucky I will be when I can reclaim my home and my own comforting routines again, made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You are shining that light at the end of the tunnel for me! Thank you for sharing such a personal insight to your life. x

  5. This was quite a long post, although riveting somehow. I don't think I would ever have imagined it would be so interesting. You have a very happy sounding, amazingly tranquil life. I'd love to come visit. 🙂
    And I'd love it if you'd stop by my blog and leave a comment on my latest post. It made me think of you and I KNOW you'd have a few wise something's to offer me.

  6. dear A: it occurs to me that our flat is quite like the Tardis except in one vital area. It appears to be smaller on the inside. However, Trashing and Treasuring is in progress, so I don't trip over K9 quite so often as I used to and my assistants are not quite so mardy. Have a good day! L.
    PS what would happen if Darth Vader collected Finley from school one day??

  7. I loved reading this post, Alison! This is so inspiring, to me–Thanks for answering!! ♥
    I couldn't comment from my iPad the other day–silly thing wouldn't open any internet pages for me!

  8. Your blog has shot its way onto my daily must-reads. I just love the way you write. Even something as simple as describing your day is transformed into a glorious, exciting-sounding saga.
    Love it!!

  9. Oh Alison, what an utterly scrumptious piece of writing! I am moving soon and am rethinking my daily routine and planning to step into a lovely new one, and remembered years ago you writing about your morning and evening routines. I was trying to find that when I found this, and it sounds just blissful! I am so glad you shared!
