A (Really) Long Weekend

Five days at home seems so luxurious.

I've been back working for eight months now, so this time with my little family feels like stolen time. Ultra good for the soul. Perfect for recharding the old batts.

We've hung out together, I've sort of tidied, I've baked (and misread the recipe and inadvertently doubled the butter in the brownie recipe FAILWHALE), we've gone walking, we've played frisbee, we've egg hunted, we've tidied bedrooms, we've chatted, we've cuddled, we've stayed up really late, we've caught up with DVDs, we've curled up on the couch. We've had such a beautiful time.

And we've still got two days up our sleeves. Aye carumba. I am the luckiest girl in the world.

Looks like you are enjoying yourself on those scooters!!

Sounds like you are really making the most of the long break.

I think every week should be like this. 2 days of work. 5 days off. 2 days of work. 5 days off. Life would be less stressful. More love in the world for everyone.

Love it, I am doing all the same. Trying to write my blog is proving hard. I don't know what to leave out.

I know! It's so fun and nice. I am even loving the cool rainy time. How did the fail whale brownies taste? Too buttery? Is there such a thing?
