The weekend just been has been what I now consider a fabulous weekend. When I was younger, a big weekend partying with friends was what I considered fun but how that has changed. Don’t get me wrong, I still like to let my hair down but it’s just different now I suppose.
So you ask what did I get up to this weekend. Well Friday night entailed a few drinks with my husband and a bit of a laugh after putting our daughter to bed, who was an angel. She did cry at around 5am but that was due to her being wet through and totally understandable. She did go back to sleep however and in her own bed until 6.30 I might add.
Saturday I went to the chiropractor, and then into the shop. We don’t own a clothes dryer so I went to the local laundromat to actually dry our sheets and towels as the weather we have been having is pretty wet and wild lately. I had forgotten how nice towels feel after coming out of the dryer, so warm and fluffy. It is one of the snall joys in life and I just wanted to snuggle into them. After shutting shop we headed to the mall where I brought a new pair of jeans.
Saturday night I had dinner, a few drinks and a little gambling with some girlfriends. I have to say there is so much to be said about having a good laugh and chat with some decent down to earth people.
Sunday was a pretty lazy day. We didn’t get out of bed until 8ish. Elise was cuddled in bed with us, watching cartoons on my phone for about an hour as we dozed. Justin made us ham and cheese croissants for breakfast. Midday Elise had a swim lesson with her Dad. We took Bonnie to the local park and played fetch with her as Elise ran around. Dad took Elise to Repco and I went to Spotlight childless where I wandered and eventually brought some pretty paper and washi tape.
Now I don’t know what it is about paper but I love it and as I don’t have much time I use stickers and tape in my planner to make my planner pretty to quench my need for paper crafts. I do plan however to get into scrapbooking as I have done one class and enjoyed it so much. So over the coming months I plan to slowly work at getting into it.
Now Sunday night is here. I’m typing this in bed. Justin is tinkling with his car in the garage, Bonnie is lying at my feet and Elise is tucked up asleep in bed. I can hear rain outside but I’m warm and dry. I even have my bamboo diffuser going with a relaxation essence.
So that weekend was perfect as it was relaxing and a weekend that everyone got something out of it but I’m praying that I’m wrong about one thing.
On the way home today I stopped at the shops to grab a few bits and pieces for dinner. We made ourselves a steak sandwich. Now Justin believed it smelled a little different but we thought it must have been the marinade on it as the use by date was about 5 days away. As we both were coming to the end of our sandwich we bite into a horrible tasting piece of steak pretty much at the exact same time. We both thought it tasted as if it was off. We threw out what was left but if it was off the damage has been done. We are now praying that we are not up in the middle of the night.
Wish us luck as I don’t want my lovely weekend to end badly!
