The weekend that was

What a great weekend.

I don't have any photos of what I was doing to show you - I didn't have my camera with me and so it was great to just be in the moment and enjoy.

We talked, a lot;
sewed, a lot;
ate, a little;
drank, a bit
and relaxed in this wonderful place.

The company was fabulous. Lots of funny, clever, talented, fun and helpful ladies.
(These descriptions apply to them all equally, not just the one they are linked to! Megan and 'Nikki's sewing buddy' were the other two lovely ladies who joined us, and they certainly apply to them too!)

I got lots made.
All for me.

Going away is a whole lot more relaxing when 'the guy who lives here' makes it so easy.
There's no guilt laid on me about having time to myself.
There's no demand as to when I have to be home.
He gets it; totally.
And I love him even more for that.

So here's what he and the girls got up to while I was away;

Butter wouldn't melt in their mouths would it...
Our standard zoo photo - their legs are getting very long!

Small child who just wants to be one of the gang.

Photo fun

This was on the door when I got home.

The chocolate cake they baked for my return was also enjoyed.

So thanks everyone for a lovely weekend - let's do it again, soon.

PS excuse the quality of the photos - they are all all iphone or Blackberry ones.

PPS - don't forget that SAY is on tonight - hope to see you there.

I'm so jealous of your weekend away. It looks like the girls had lots of fun too. It makes such a difference when you have a supportive husband.

Glad you had some quality time for yourself! :) It looks like the girls and the Man of the House had an absolute blast! Tell D I think he's awsome :)

Gina said...

Fun times for all. One day I'll make it to the crafty Mecca that is Sewjourn - if it's still running by the time I'm able to escape the gang!

Hope SAY is great.

hooray for you, those little charmers (welcome home Mum- delightful!) and that bloke that lives there! I am glad you had a great weekend. And, is that like, a tangerine coloured henna garden sleeve that Alice is sporting? Lucky Alice- what's that pattern? Gorgeous dresses all round, I should add- pity we don't have a photo (YET) of you in your new Lisette tunic...?!
