weekending

What glorious weather, a truly gorgeous weekend.  We have been spending as much time outdoors as possible.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner on the patio.  Why is it that food always tastes better outside?

We had a lovely afternoon yesterday at a family fun day organised by our local community hall, a beautifully restored stone schoolhouse.  The little ones bounced on castles, played with balloon swords and flowers and enjoyed a vintage tractor parade.

The big ones watched a skittles game, while enjoying a barbeque and a few beers.


This morning I decided to paint the play house.  It was in dire need of freshening up.  I am so taken with the pretty new colours I think I might move in.

A touch exhausted, I collapsed into an armchair to watch Andy Murray win Wimbledon, catch up in blogland and now I am set to be unnerved by tonight's episode of The Returned.

Hope you all have had a lovely weekend and are all set to enjoy more lovely sunshine this week.

  4. Good heavens - is that your playhouse - I'd be in there like a shot you lucky spud! Hope you enjoyed The Returned tonight - we love it over here and have so many different theories about the plot which were practically all scotched by tonight's storyline! Enjoy the sunny weather x Jane

  5. Would there be any room for me to move in too Bee? The playhouse is gorgeous and I know your children will just love it, who doesn't love playing house when you are little. Hasn't it been a divinely hot weekend? My goodness, we have been on the beach a lot and I managed to have my first cool dip in the sea, delicious to be swimming again. I hope this weather is here to stay a while, everyone just is so much more lighter and happier when the sun shines xox Penny
    ps. I love the Returned too!

  16. That little playhouse is SO gorgeous, and what a beautiful spot you have there! You are properly in the countryside. Hasn't this weather been bliss? I love how happy it makes everyone.

    What do you think of The Returned? I watched the first episode and found it very unsettling and quite depressing. Is it worth sticking with? xx
