Yesterday we had a much needed home day. The boys both have funny tums. And it was cold, grey and cloudy. Thankfully we had some much needed rain overnight.
I had a dozen hydrangea plants to nestle into the garden, some plants to trim and weeding to deal with. All with the help of my little gardeners. Although they were not feeling well they were happy to be outside.
A lunch request for eggy sandwiches was made. And with the cooling weather I had a "Boil up" on the stove. Pork, sea salt, bay leaves, peppercorns, potatoes (always double how much you think you will need) and huge amounts of watercress. This was welcomed for both lunch and dinner.
I like days like these, where there is no need to go anywhere, no need to rush. Growing up, we always seemed to be at home more that we were out and about. Today everyone's lives seem so busy that full days at home are few and far between. I always like to have atleast one day during the week and usually a Sunday at home. If it is time spent outside in the garden or inside playing, (afternoon sleeps) pottering, cooking or making. It always recharges you I think. Simple days are great days when spent at home.
