The beauty of doing nothing....
that was what the last five days were like for me - i do love a getaway...a getaway with no set plans, just idle days, long meals...walking, browsing, reading ...the boys swam daily, played with their cousins and took in lots of fresh air!
i did plan to crochet more than i did but the weather was just too good and in the evenings after the kids were in bed we all sat around and played rummy...
back home to a dusty house
and a huge bag of laundry!
i spent the morning washing then off to two soccer games (one son's team won, the others lost), took my car in for a pinkslip, grabbed a coffee while i waited, then it was off to get my gray hair-roots dyed, came home starving, made a peanut butter sandwich,
more laundry washing,
made some chicken stock (from scratch) for soup, we had an early dinner - soup, baked fish and a salad, cleaned up then it was off to the supermarket at 7.30pm (very busy!),
ironed for 2hrs and here I am....
its time for bed!
tommorow wont be any easier as its our niece's kitchen tea/bridal shower so its up early as I need to make some savouries and sweets to take along...should be a great day though! im getting excited for her!
Happy Sunday to you too.......

  2. I love lazy days. The first picture is so relaxed.

    Its nice u had a great time.
    I wish i cud be lazy more. Id like a 'lazy' life.:)

  3. You're like superwoman to fit all that in one day!... You holiday sounded just perfect

  4. Jeez, I wish I had your energy! I always have good intentions when I get up on the weekend, but never end up doing much at all!

  5. Oh I'm glad you had a wonderful getaway. The ones with no plans are sometimes the best ones. You pack so much into your days. It's amazing!

    Don't you love holidays ... gives you back your zest for life :) I find I do too much of nothing lately, I think I'm making up for 15yrs of working long hours & never seeing daylight :D

  7. Love the top pic. :) I've had a couple of lazy days lately, but have been too restless to enjoy them, and spend the whole time trying to fill them up with stuff to do. Urgh.


Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment!! i really appreciate it!
