I do love that feeling on a Friday, around 5pm, when you know you have the whole weekend in front of you to look forward to. A whole two and more days of endless possibilities.
And this September has been so beautifully warm that this weekend, my Friday evening saw me....
... cutting back our Leylandii tree and discovering lots of footballs underneath. I am not a great
fan of these hedges but it makes a good barrier between us and our neighbours and stops
a few balls from going into their garden!
... hanging out the washing in the evening knowing that it will dry the next day
(I've never worked out why I get such pleasure from hanging my washing out late in the day -
I've even been known to hang it out in the dark!)
... enjoying a glass of Prosecco and a read of my book - for it to be warm enough to do this sat outside early evening in September is a rare bonus.
... watching the sun go down behind the trees at the end of the field.
... and Saturday was warm enough for me to wear shorts while watching daughter run
... calling at a garden centre on the way home for a coffee and finding some treasures in their antiques barn including the pliers above that daughter fell in love with.
... and the basket I fell in love with,
... which I decided was ideal for my magazines and knitting.
I LOVE the shape - tall and rectangular, a little bit unusual.
... making the most of the warm weather to catch up on some gardening.
I think I may start again with this overgrown corner. I'm not sure that it is possible to even
work out what is going on in this corner.
... collecting a few things together for younger son's imminent departure to university.
.... this has also meant buying in a few supplies.
Please note the bottle of bleach - I forgot to buy one for older son when he first went off
to university and considering that they have en-suite facilities I soon learnt that I had
made a grave omission, enough said!
I hope you had a good weekend
