And that’s how you do a weekend…

2 September , 2014


A little surprise left for me by Nicola on Saturday – say it with me, “Ah aweet!’ πŸ˜€


Nicola getting BUSY with scissors, to add some love to a card we were making.


Mmm…frozen margerita. Yumm! Seriously, I haven’t had one of these babies in aaaages – it was just what I wanted.


Good friends, having a great time catching up. Marcia’s poor D had his hands full (of cameras)! πŸ˜‰


Nicola and Ouma, building pizzas. Some seriously sweet conversations in this kitchen.


Sunday family lunch. Followed by a really awesome afternoon nap for Nicola and I. πŸ™‚


Apricot blossoms – and just in time to be my Spring header image too!


And talking about Spring, you guys know how I’ve been counting off the days. Well this was Nicola’s Spring outfit yesterday. Somehow I forgot to take a photo of mine, but anyway – I managed to uphold the Spring day dress wearing tradition, even though it was still a bit fresh out for that!


Yesterday was also a great fb photo day for me – haha! This beautiful photo was taken by cat on Saturday. I love it! This is definitely getting framed.


And this one was taken a few weeks ago at my friend Ivy’s Gatsby party.

Anyhoo, this past weekend had just the right mix of fun and rest as far as I’m concerned. I could do with another, just like it – but possibly a bit warmer so that we can get our swim on already!

How was your weekend?

PS! Thursday will be a biggish day for us. We have the information day at the Primary School in the morning, and Polka is going for the great snip. Expect a more wordy update from me by the end of the week. πŸ˜‰

PPS! I need to plant something…TODAY. I’m planting out container plants and sowing a few seeds, hopefully some time this weekend we might find time to pop round to a nursery and get something pretty to add to that.
