......Was an extremely lazy one.
It started in the most perfect way.....
A lounge in bed whilst the sun shone and the birds chirped. A cuppa in one hand, a hook in the other and my favourite weekend morning tracks played. A bit of quiet time, then a bounce on the bed, pillow fight and snuggle time with all the Bears. P-E-R-F-E-C-T
After finally getting up, I went from the bedroom, to the garden.....and pretty much stayed there all weekend.
After having, what seems like months, of wind and rain, to pass up the opportunity of garden lounging in fine weather would have been criminal!
I worked on a bit of this and a bit of that.....
I got to enjoy the Evening Sun blanket in the evening sun. It was delicious to wrap in it and read stories with Baby Bear. It was everything I had dreamed about when making the blanket......and more......
....and on Sunday........I made a girl den for myself.
Having boys, I have made a lot of boy dens in my time.
On Sunday, I fancied a little girly retreat where I could read my books, and just get away from it all. Now, having a 2ft by 2ft garden, means it's pretty hard to escape.....but, the elder Bears were doing their own thing (building ant and worm farms with their friends), and Baby Bear came and went as the fancy took him. Grand Prix meant Mr H was occupied, so it was pretty much me to myself.
During the day cordial was sipped, fruit was eaten, books were read and bubbles were blown......and as the evening drew in, lanterns were switched on and wine was opened. It really was a lovely little escape. Who needs luxury holidays when a blanket and a few cheap lanterns can do it for you!!!!!
So, a lovely restful weekend was had. I have a ton of cleaning to do today though, so no rest for the wicked!
I hope you all had a good weekend. I would love to hear what you got up to. Restful of jam packed?
Thank you for all your messages on my last post. A lot of you agreed about the trainer issues! It's great to hear so many of you walk a lot. It was uplifting to hear actually. Sometimes when you think you are the only one doing it, you sort of feel like why should you bother. I know it must be doing me good, and hopefully I will start to feel it soon! Annie, you made a good point, I shall look into it! It was also nice to hear that a lot of you felt like I do about magazines. It just seems to have got to a point where the real content is only 10 pages when the whole magazine is 100. And, I think it's clear that we ALL dream of a simpler life. Blogging, for myself and i'm sure for many, has made me appreciate all the little things in life. The little things that often get so easily missed, but that can have a wonderful effect on the mind and soul. So I am thankful for blogging, and all you guys that make it just so much fun. You are all so truly awesome.
Okay, enough gushing, I have beds to strip, wash loads to put on and I REALLY need to find out where I put my hoover.........................
