Well the week started off well with a trip to one of my favourite shops to spend some birthday money I still had tucked away. I treated myself to a pretty cover for my journal:
Alas dear little son has now passed on an annoying virus to hubby and I. The good news is now that the weekend is here it is time to rest, relax and recharge the batteries! Luckily the sun is shinning and it is one of those glorious autumnal days with a bright azure blue sky and a gentle warm wind blowing.
I have been a fabulous domestic goddess type (ha ha!) and washed all the bedding and linen so it could spend the day on the line outside, getting fresh and lovely in the sunshine. While it dried hubby and I lounged on the sofa and moaned about our various ailments. It was bliss to have some time to devour my favourite magazines though!
And just when I think that my little boy is becoming so grown up (I was reprimanded for kissing him goodbye at the schoolgate this week!), he surprises me with something sweet and adorable, like spending a hour or so playing 'doctors' with his wee teddies. Tucking them up in bed and nagging them to eat their green veggies (hmmm, I dont know where he has heard that before!).
Time to dash back to the comfort of the sofa, hubby has put on an old black and white Humphrey Bogart movie to watch and made us all mugs of hot chocolate - yum yum! I think dinner tonight will simply be soup and toast (or maybe just brandy and dark chocolate, he he he).
Have a happy and healthy week dear friends!
