I had a whole weekend off this weekend – what sheer joy! And I had originally planned some energetic activities. You know, the sort that would actually require us to get dressed and leave the house. But after my Friday afternoon cosy-fest I decided on an indulgent, all out pyjama day on Saturday. BLIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSS! In our defense, we have all been knocked sideways by various tummy bugs and coughs & colds, so (in my mind anyway) a PJ day was practically medicinal.
We baked…(using this recipe – the dough was LOVELY to work with and the results yummy!)
and I crocheted little stars…(very cute – pattern found here)…
and played with Hama beads…made homemade wholemeal pizzas using this recipe for the base, and topped with BBQ sauce, chorizo, peppers and cheese (I didn’t get any photos as they didn’t survive long enough!)…watched rubbish TV…had loooonnnnngggg bubble baths..read some of my favorite blogs (including 71toes, Posie gets Cozy, My Rose Valley….and took time to smell the lillies.
Mark brought these home for me last week when I was feeling most sorry for myself. He also brought Imodium, Sudofed, extra loo roll and a Greggs Custard Slice. Who said romance was dead? That man knows me so well.
Sunday continued in the same way after church. Mark went to play golf, the kids went about their various indoor activities and I snoozed on the sofa. We had the first rehearsal of our new choir last night and it was so lovely. We are practicing songs for a couple of Christmas services. I LOVE Christmas music and I came home having sung/bellowed/screeched my heart out feeling all festive. Which added to my weekend of cosy beautifully!
