We rushed about yesterday getting chores done - nothing major, but the little things you leave for the weekend, Matt had a hockey match in the afternoon, and it was actually warm, and pleasant watching. Chatting with the other parents was more relaxed - we could hear each other, there was no wind howling across the astro, and we weren't huddled under umbrellas. It made us look forward to the cricket season.
Today "the boys" have gone to play golf, (rugby was cancelled) so I have the day to myself. As I say, chores were completed yesterday (including the grass being cut - thanks Matt) and I intend to spend the day relaxing, a bit of reading, photography, and plenty of crafting.
I finished my Nordic Shawl - I can see this getting lots of use when I watch cricket through the summer. It will be perfect when the temperature drops in the early evenings. (Ok - I may be being a little optimistic, but surely it can't be as cold as last year - huddled in coats and under blankets, pretending we were having fun watching our sons?)
This morning, I have taken some photos in the garden
because you can't have too many photos of daffodils and flowers in the sun can you?
And now I'm sitting down with a cuppa and a slice of blueberry and lemon cake - I saw the recipe here and it is delicious. Thank you Jen.
I intend to craft out here, listening to the birdsong, with the odd walk into the kitchen to make another cup of tea, and breathe in the lovely scent of the flowers my mum gave to me yesterday.
Doesn't a bit of sunshine and warmth make a difference to the weekend.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
