...of a lovely weekend.

:: Family morning of miniature golfing.  Hilarious fun... Especially Mr J's hole-in-one: twice!

:: Evening in with a sisterly friend, drinking coffee and watching this.  Sinister cheese based on the 80's musical... in my opinion, the book and on-stage musical are much better! 

:: Morning out at my friend's, with Coo. Enjoying brilliant sunshine and soaking in the unusual warmth.  Watching Coo and her buddies [twin boys] play together.  Meanwhile, Dan and our three boys went on a rambling adventure in a nearby forest.

:: Afternoon in as a family watching this.  Crazy movie... but sweet family time.

:: Evening out in our friends' back garden... bonfire!  Ever smelled conifers burning?  Fresh, smoky, sharp, piney smell... Mmmm!  The Boys wouldn't leave until the last branch was on the bonfire.  I think the fire might have been Mordor, and there were definitely orcs and elves involved.  I love my imaginative kids!

:: Morning out with our church family, meeting together.

:: Afternoon in at home.  Lentil soup... boys playing football... Daddy kindly corralled all four small people and I had free time!  One of my favourite old books, re-read many times, read in an hour.  I speed-read often.  Wonder why...

:: After that it was baking, cleaning up, putting kids to bed, conversation on the phone with a friend, and lots of people round.  

Not spectacular, just... significantly special and worthy of mention!


  1. It sounds like the PERFECT weekend! Mine was spent moving, sleeping in, watching movies, packing, unpacking...I'll be glad when this is all done.

    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is definitely a bizarre movie, but cute. :-)
