weekending

It is so, so cold.  A bitter, biting wind is whooping and wailing outside.  Time to batten down the hatches. We have been promised some snow although it is difficult to imagine as I look out at the grey sleety rain trickling down our windowpane.

I am so happy the weekend has arrived.   I have plans for a cosy weekend at home. 

Stove lit, snuggling under blankets.  Feasting on warming soups and stews. Trying out a new recipe for apple cake and enjoying some films with the little ones.

And if the snow does arrive I expect there will be some sledging and snowman building.

What about you?  Any plans?  I hope you have a warm and cosy weekend whatever you get up to.

  7. The snow arrived here this morning so I spent the morning throwing snowballs at little children at school, who then all got to go home early! Waiting for tomorrow and hopefully an early morning trek and some snowy photographs!

  9. oooh I wish we had a fire!! It is exactly the type of weather book reading, blanket snuggling and an open fire...but alas my little cottage only has night storage heaters and an oil fired rayburn...not quite the same! :( Do pop over to mine and take a peek at my giveaway if you get a chance. Its only a little one but you might like it x

  10. We're having a snug weekend too - the snow arrived with us this morning so we've mostly been holed up keeping cosy! I'm mega jealous of your woodburner though - we're currently in the (long, slow) process of trying to choose one and get it fitted. Apple cake sounds good too!x

    1. Sounds perfect ... keeping cosy is the only way when the weather is like this ... we love our woodburner ... I have always wanted one so we had it fitted when we built our house three years ago ... definitely recommend them ... they are so cosy ... ours is a Stanley Tara ... quite reasonable and good quality ... enjoy the weekend ... Bee xx

  16. I was just thinking about baking an apple cake this morning! Definitely a day for baking...keeps the kitchen warm and there's cake to eat at the end of it...perfect! We had a great day sledging in the park yesterday and built a snowman in the garden...but today is all about blankets and DVDs and baking...just wish my kids would eat soup! Might have to make myself some anyway...have a lovely cosy weekend. Rachel xx

    1. Glad you have had fun in the snow Rachel ... definitely weather to enjoy snuggling in ... I've just recently convinced my eldest to eat soup and the other two love it ... in fact it's virtually the only way I can get veg into my second little man ... although he is getting a little more adventurous ... enjoy the rest of your weekend lovely ...

  17. I do enjoy snugly cosy weather and I'd love to see snow from my window, however in this part of the world it's summer and we've just had a day at the beach.

  20. Hi Bee. Your fire looks so inviting. we have had ALOT of snow, since the beginning of the week. I've not left the house since Tues. Well and truly fed up with snow. Apple cake sounds yum! xx

  21. I hope the snow arrived so you could get out and enjoy it. Although I must say soups, stews, fires and dvds all sound a lot more appealing to me :-) x

  22. Ah, Bee, that stove...can I just move right in? Your weekend promises to be wonderful - I hope it was. We went up to the Yorkshire Dales and it was magical.
