My weekend has mainly been spent…

  • Letting Mr.LA lie in.
  • Watching old cartoons with the children. It’s been ages since I’ve seen any classic Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck. Vintage Disney is truly wonderful.
  • Catching up with my brother-in-law who was staying with us for the weekend.
  • Sipping tea.
  • Skipping breakfast.
  • Enjoying a long, hot shower.
  • Slipping on a favourite red dress.
  • Wearing a beret, much to my husband’s amusement.
  • Braving the wind and rain to visit Exeter Christmas Market.
  • Feeling a little underwhelmed. While there was some delicious food on offer, the market lacked the festive feeling I had hoped for. The truly miserable weather didn’t help matters either.
  • Eating bratwurst and sauerkraut in the pouring rain.
  • Desperately searching for some new winter boots. Ballet pumps just won’t cut it in this weather.
  • Retreating back to the house.
  • Drying off and warming up.
  • Feeling cosy in my Primarni PJs.
  • Being generally lazy all afternoon.
  • Making supper for the children.
  • Listening in as Jesse was read to by his Uncle.
  • Drinking wine and making dinner.
  • Dancing round the kitchen to Florence & the Machine.
  • Enjoying Jamie Oliver’s Asian Style Salmon.
  • Watching ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’. Easily the biggest turkey we’ve watched in a while.
  • Eating too many Haribos.
  • Retiring to bed.
  • Listening to the wind and rain.
  • Sleeping in.
  • Eating porridge and sipping tea.
  • Catching up on the latest flood news.
  • Staying in my pyjamas.
  • Relishing the peace and quiet of an empty house.
  • Writing.
  • Preparing soup and toasted bagels for lunch.
  • Clearing a cupboard of clutter. I’m craving a bit of life laundry at the moment. It took me two hours to organise one shelf out of a possible three. Still, it’s a start!
  • Roasting a chicken for Sunday dinner.
  • Feeling comforted after potatoes, yorkshire puddings and gravy.
  • Bathing the children.
  • Reading bedtime stories.
  • Drinking diet coke, eating a wispa and writing a blog post.

  1. That J.O Asian style salmon is a favourite in our house – so tasty yet so easy! Soup and a toasted bagel sounds like perfect autumn/winter lunching food too. x

  2. Your weekends always sound so cosy! I’ll have to try the asian style salmon if I can get the ingredients here…Imagine, I have to go all the way to Ikea just to get salmon!

  3. I love these segments in your blog!! Your family is just so cute. What wonderful memories you’re making with them. Your weekends often inspire mine! :D
