Weekends are wonderful things, aren’t they? Time to recharge our batteries {sincere apologies to anyone who works weekends} do nothing, do everything, bake, make, talk, eat, the list goes on…

I just love them!

Our weekend was filled with simple pleasures…a walk through the park to town for shopping {where we managed to sneak a huge scone in a local cafe}, lots of relaxing, reading, art homework & revision, quality time together, an amazing meal with friends {my friend is a cooking ninja!}, wine and lots of sunshine…wonderful!

I hope yours was just what you wanted it to be.

This weekend has been filled with family, quiet, reading, a drum exam, revising, a night out with my husband involving chilli and Guinness {love the stuff!}, pretty flowers, a very windy walk, How to Train Your Dragon 2 {brilliant} and just generally staying close to home. I like this kind of weekend very much…just enough to make it interesting, but not so much as to make it too busy.

A bonus for me this week is having tomorrow and Tuesday at home too {massive fist pump moment}.

My weekend has been a good one. Friday evening was spent with my amazing friend {who is more like a sister to me} eating pizza, drinking wine, chatting and generally having a lovely time.

Yesterday was a quiet day…my husband was working and my son spent time with my dad, while I pottered around the house, tidying and such {with a small hangover}.

Today just seems to have flown by, with more jobs around the house ticked off my list {the dreaded ironing done…YES!}, my son’s English Literature coursework completed, a lovely sunny walk in the park and a visit to see my dad. Walking round the garden there made me feel so close to my mum and also so proud of my dad for how well he is coping without her. Today felt like another step towards healing, and for that I am so thankful.

I hope you have had a lovely weekend and wish you a happy week ahead.
