:: a lovely Saturday lie-in
:: a long walk in the woods with Jack. It is really spring now, so many buds and shoots, it is a joy. It is still very muddy in our part of the world though.
:: an afternoon of sewing with Annie. She made her own lined zippered pouch for her dog essentials. She managed ok with the zip on my machine but stormed off in frustration because it is not really possible to control the speed of her own sewing machine and it went too fast for her to maintain a straight line. She returned eventually to finish it on my machine, which has a slow speed setting. I mad a boxy pouch inspired by Kristie's recent post using this tutorial.
:: Sam cooking dinner for us all, his latest favourite, pizza. I was very nearly weeping when I saw the kitchen but the pizza was delicious.
:: continental cheese cake baking in the evening.
:: breakfast in bed on Sunday with James's homemade Chelsea buns and plenty of coffee.
:: small gifts and cards from the three younger ones
:: another long walk in the woods, this time with our friends and their puppy Rudi. It was Rudi's first time in the woods and he really loved it. Jack and Rudi had a great time running and rolling around.
:: cheese cake and coffee for lunch, what's not to like? Jack stole the leftovers.
:: roller skating with Annie and friends. I am actually quite good. Considering my age and the time since my last skating experience. I felt 18 years old and carefree. No broken bones but I am sure I will be in pain tomorrow.
:: steak and chips for dinner.
With such a lovely weekend behind me, I am very motivated for the week ahead. I am refreshed and happy. I am wishing you all a great week. Cx
