This weekend was very rare though - my girls went away to a music festival, so I had a few hours alone in the house (except for the pets). It was bliss. I was conscious though that there is a lot more of this to come as they are both talking of travelling and living away in the coming years. So before too long I'll be missing them and having lots of alone time. So enjoy the busy times now. Although I look at my mother who is one of the busiest people I know.
I actually felt as though I had a bit of a weekend. I still did groceries, cooking and jobs, but I also sewed and crocheted more than usual .
Several rows of the border for my rug done. Loving it too. Sounds obvious probably but it is really really adding another dimension to the rug and I'm loving it all the more too. I'm not sure how many rows I will do. I'm just trusting that the rug will tell me when there's enough. Then an edging of some description. Something new.
A bit of cooking - all scrummy. A chicken curry on Friday night, a good ol' fashioned beef stew on Saturday, absolutely DElishous. The smell filling the house whilst I sewed was divine. The anticpation of the meal to come...
Saturday night watching New Tricks on telly crocheting away. My colourful leftover quilt spread over me.
Sunday morning coffee with girlfriends at a patisserie in the Perth CBD.
We hadn't been there before - well worth a vist. Busy and vib-ey on a Sunday morning. I bought the girls a treat...ah memories of Paris last year....
Some more baking - my current favourite soup, Sweet Potato and Lentil and a banana cake.
And some herb patch admiring...planted in an old wheelbarrow about a month ago and THRIVING.
And a then a Sunday afternoon rugby match in glorious sunshine. My team lost by a point - their 5th straight loss.
And then settling in with a cuppa and Sunday night tv viewing - the return of Downtown Abbey and some more happy hooking!
Knock me socks off... if it wasn't a proper weekend! It just snuck up on me... just like that!
