Oh what a difference an extra day makes to the weekend! A chance to break out of our usual routine and relax a little more. And the weather certainly helped as we were blessed with three days of dry weather and some sunshine as well. It has rained all day today but wouldn't you call that fair play?
Our weekend was fairly simple. Hubs did a few diy jobs like putting up a washing line in the garden - a simple job but one that we hadn't got round to - and I sneaked out of the house early on Sunday morning to a car boot sale specifically to pursue bargains for the garden. I was very focused and self-disciplined and (almost) stuck to my list and budget. We went for daily walks, had leisurely meals, sat reading outside, walked to the local pub and drank cider outside, mowed our annoyingly small lawn and made new plans for the garden. We're getting there with our garden plans, s l o w l y...
So, joining in with Jen from little birdie for week 35, here's my four particular happy moments.
♥ Lazy weekend breakfasts. Almond croissants. Mmm...
♥ Finding cheap terracotta pots and plants at the car boot sale. I wanted some small pots to cover a manhole cover at the front of our house and was delighted to find some. I love white flowers in pots and a geranium always pretties up an outdoor table, don't you think?
♥ A new addition to my summer wardrobe. I found this floaty tunic on my way out of the car boot sale. Just the perfect length to wear over leggings and a bargain at £1. Yes it was an impulse buy, but I was drawn to its colours and I know I'll wear it a lot. The lovely lady who sold it to me said it was clean but not ironed and having washed it myself I now fully intend not to iron it either :) That makes it a definite keeper in my summer minimalist wardrobe.
♥ Spotting the first azaleas in our local woods. I can't wait to see more of these beauties bloom over the next few weeks.
