Well the weekend started with such promised - when the VV household eventually woke (quite late) on Saturday we were treated to a sunbeam peaking round the curtains.
As it was so nice little son & I decided to walk into town to collect a newspaper and few forgotten pieces of shopping. We called into the florists as the sunshine was making me long for more colour - opted for these mini-daffs which since the pic was taken have bloomed even more, bringing much needed sunshine into my kitchen. Thought they'd look even better in my cs cornishware bowl;
The boys all planned a cycle ride for after lunch as the weather was so nice. Off they set leaving me with a quiet house to myself. After a little while I wandered off upstairs to collect more wool and I happened to glance out of the window - oh dear - thick mist had decended. They arrived home much quicker than planned having cut their ride short :(
Another hint of colour in the kitchen this weekend has been my gorgeous new silicone bun cases from £land - I bought one set to test and a lovely sister got me some more in the week;
Sunday morning we were all up early & dressed as we were heading out for breakfast a treat to big son who is 14 later this week. He choose to head to the FarmCafe @ Marlesford which is brilliant for a special treat - expensive but still cheaper than having a house full of 14 year old boys which was the alternative. I forgot to take my camera so there are no pics of him devouring his full english breakfast :(
I have been plodding on with 20 minutes of crafting - the knitted blanket now consists of 18 squares sewn together with another 2 ready to sew on. When I've got this next band finished I will pop another photo on. I've also been planning a couple of sewing projects as I've more birthdays coming up and want to make things towards those - oh the joys of a big family!
See you later in the week.
