Just loved our weekend. Tom scored his first Try at Rugby, there was minimal squabbling the only real hiccup being the button someone shoved up their nose! And after complaints from Bell Saturday morning that she was bored after telling her she needed to do something other than play on her phone, I was on a mission to make her weekend phone free and fun! She loves craft so I set up the table with paints, mini canvases, buttons, washi tape, a necklace making kit and anything else I could get my hands on. She loved it and crafted all day.......mission complete.
Let's not forget the Looming too. I actually thought this had been and gone in our town and had simply bi-passed our house. But no, after having Bell talk about it all week we did a quick dash into town to pick up the necessary supplies (yay a cheap hobby) and this kept her occupied (and off her phone) for the rest of the weekend. I've since been on line and ordered her a huge Looming kit with all the Bell's and whistles. With school holidays approaching this new hobby/distraction could be great timing.
Over the weekend:
Home time - hanging at home over the weekend is under-rated I think.
A roaring fire.
Homemade vegetable soup with a bacon hock for dinner.
Date and cinnamon scones.
Mr H's English breakfasts on a Sunday morning.
Windows and window sills washed.
Vegetable garden weeded and dug over ready for new plantings.
Mud pies and outdoor kitchen/café play.
Books, trains and Lego.
Tea, tea and more tea.
I would have loved more sleep but heck you can't have everything. Here's to a good week ahead and another weekend to look forward too.
