Just for a change we decided that we'd have a quiet weekend - no going out - just a weekend at home. When I first started blogging I wrote about the Wonderful Weekend Book by Elspeth Thompson and how I loved the idea of reclaiming weekends. Well it was a habit we kept to for a while but then things got hectic - boys have places to be and people to see and of course there have been some great family days out over the summer. However this weekend was going to be reclaimed - its started with a lie-in :)
The weather helped - it was really quite soggy here for most of Saturday afternoon and all of Sunday - just the sort of weather to keep you indoors doing home stuff. Firstly there was;
Jam making - Apple & Blackberry
There were 6 jars - one was given to a friend as a thank you and another swiped by the boys before it could be photographed!!
Then there was finishing off of various sewing/knitting projects - I can't show you most of them as they are destined for swaps. I did finish my purple scarf though - rather handy as its been so cold;
Sunday afternoon was particularly chilly, however MrVV insisted it was still shorts weather so I was surprised to see him wrapped up in one of my quilts watching the Grand Prix;
More baking was needed - well you need something to go with mugs of tea;
Blueberry muffins - yum yum
Back in blogland - don't forget that I shall be drawing my mystery blog birthday giveaway on Wednesday. Also I've just signed up for my first Christmas swap - (its a Secret Santa one)over @ Laalaa's - go on have a look, you know you want to take part too, it should be great fun.
See you soon
