weekends are for...


/ weet-bix
/ lazy mornings in pj's, games of memory
/ home made babycinos with sprinkles
/ folding endless piles of washing, and noting my love of wintery knits
/ coffee, frothy goodness, and watching the rain
/ leaving the kids to their own devices out on our back table (meant artwork - and mess galore)
/ pumpkin scones fresh from the oven, with lashings of butter

We also were lucky enough to have a rare visit from my mother-in-law who has been super busy lately. She spent the day loving on the kiddos, and we were even able to sneak off for a couple of hours to have a coffee together and watch Brad Pitt save the world.
For tea, we bought Indian from a new little restaurant around the corner, and had leftover butter chicken for Sunday lunch. 
Late Sunday afternoon finds us watching grey skies, rugged up inside. 

Weekend love. 

Joining up with Em's Stills Collection.

  5. Oh that art table! Heaven! We managed some glitter art on the grass (for easy excess shake off) just before the rain hit. Have a lovely week!
