What a lovely long weekend I’ve just had. Leslie surprised us with Friday off work, so we had four days of family time. Sunday morning, I was presented with some lovely flowers, and a card from:
Jack and Adam and the fishies ?
Considering, I feed them and clean the tank, I suppose it’s only appropriate they were featured on the card 😉
Leslie then suggested we head off out to Powerscourt House & Gardens for the day, and as it was such a fabulously sunny day, how could I resist! I got to wander in the gardens, the boys had a lark pretending to be knights and all sorts, a browse in the shops (gotta love Avoca) and some delicious lunch which we got to eat out on the terrace as the sun was blazing down on us. A really lovely day. The whole day, I kept thinking that I really cannot wait to be finished with work projects, so that my weekends can be mine completely; no websites to design, no content to add, no stationery to print… Yes, I’ll have some of that 😉
I also got to indulge in visiting Tara’s Palace, if you haven’t been, GO… I adore everything about it, I’d love to shrink right down and be in the dollshouse, it’s just stunning!
So what will I fill all the time that I’m not being the goddess of mop and cooker? Well I’ve my eye on a few pairs of jeans that aren’t quite right, fit wise, and think I’ll chance using one to turn into a skirt… Who knows what will happen to the others! I’ve also got some fab fabrics en route, and a huge collection of buttons of all shapes & sizes coming… I’m going to chance making a quilt, and I also want to make a knitting bag for a dear friend who’s been bitten by the knitting bug but doesn’t have the suitable bag for storing her supplies… I’ve a stunning pattern ordered for this, and cannot WAIT to go shopping for fabrics… Oh the choices!
As for today, well I’m assembling a suite of wedding stationery, feeding the boys, keeping the house relatively tidy (the cleaning will have to wait till tomorrow morning), setting up a website for a client, and browsing Pinterest as my guilty pleasure!
Have a good day!
