The weekend







It' s been a good weekend and I can't believe it's Sunday evening already!

. A lovely long walk on the beach, although my ongoing search for a heart shaped pebble still proved futile...

. Chicken nachos made by G for Saturday night's tea, ate whilst watching Mr Popper's Penguins on DVD (Miss M's choice and a nice change from Marley and Me, The Puppy Years!)

. More chocolate marshmallow fudge made for G and his mountain bike buddies to enjoy today.

. Fun with Hama beads, I just love all those colours...

. Making peg dollies with Miss M and reading her current favourite book together - Matilda by Roald Dhal. I'm just loving reading this with her as I adored this book as a child. This weekend, I also started teaching Miss M how to knit, so, so exciting (for me, I mean!). It's a slow process but we are getting there and she seems to be enjoying it which is the main thing. We are currently working on a scarf for teddy.

. A little card I made for a friend at work.

. Painting our toenails and letting them dry in front of the fire

An ordinary weekend really, but a nice one. I have a couple of crafty projects to just finish off tonight then I am free to start on some new ones next week! Thanks for the lovely comments on my last post and for stopping by and reading, it really does make me smile:)

  1. Considering our nearest beach is entirely pebbley you'd think I'd have found a heart shaped stone by now too - one that is almost there but still looking for a perfect one! One day - until then my collection of lucky stones will grow!

    Looks like a lovely weekend :)

  2. Doesn't seem such an ordinary weekend to me - seems like the perfect combination of fresh air, good food and crafting. x

  3. Ordinary weekends are my favourite kind! Lovely photos, capturing the small happy things that make life good. That plate of nachos looks very good. And the fudge too, for that matter.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm happy you liked the tutorial! I hope you'll make one for your girl!
    Seems like you had a fantastic weekend! The last photo is wonderful! I've been trying to find some free time to do my nails in vain!And to have them dried near the fire...this is true luxury!
    Have a nice week!

  6. The fudge looks so yummy - so tempting :)

  7. Ordinary weekends are the tops - they're the ones that we keep in our hearts x
