It’s been a while since I posted a Vicar’s wife job description and yesterday was particularly manic, so I thought I’d give you yet another glimpse of life in our Vicarage from my perspective.
Yesterday I cooked:
- Meringues (using up leftovers) for Thursday’s coffee morning.
- Bread for lunch for mini mission team (7 adults expected, tho’ only 5 ate in the end).
- Soup for ditto.
- Lasagne for Diamond, a school gate mum friend who’s just moved house, and her family.
- Roast chicken, mashed potatoes & parsnip and steamed cabbage for the family, including Happy.
- Chicken stock from the chicken bones (see above).
Yesterday I hoovered:
- The hall
- The family room. This took longer than you’d think, due to wood burning stove dust getting into every crevice and me not having deep hoovered for er-hum weeks now.
Yesterday I organised:
- Our 5 year college reunion, including individually emailing everyone who’d not yet got back to me.
- My pantry. I would not have chosen to do this, you understand, but a shelf was on the point of collapse, so I had to empty it and the Vicar had to do some manly stuff with a drill. Result: lots of dust followed by safe, clean and reorganised shelf.
- Piano practice by three children.
- Quiz papers to be carried out by three children.
- Myself and two other women to start a new ministry in our church – we’re thinking of calling it ‘The Brunch Bunch’.
- The vast pile of odd socks and pants to prevent morning underwear crises, of which there are far too many in the Vicarage.
Yesterday I did not:
- Hoover the stairs and upper landing. Again.
- Pick up the form from school about applying to be a parent governor.
- Nobble the teacher who’s meant to be organising the volunteers so that I can start making use of my CRB form by going into school to help out.
- Remember to give the reply about the party to the Engineer’s friend’s mother.
Today I am going to:
- Hoover the stairs and landings. I am.
- Attend a prayer meeting.
- Help with preparation of lunch club vegetables and the deep cleaning of the church hall kitchen.
- Get those governor forms and nobble that teacher. And the mother.
- Take the kids to swimming lessons.
- Cook a curry so that everyone can eat – at different times due to the Vicar having Governors and a baptism meeting.
- Make a list of all the work that needs doing to the house – we have our Quinquennial tomorrow.
Wish me luck!
