Taking a Break

This weekend we decided to put down the tools and put up our feet. I reckon since we moved in in August we've been going fairly flat chat and we deserved (desperately needed) a quiet weekend. It was lovely, although I did have other work (writing school reports...yuck) hanging over my head, but I managed to put that off too - very Scarlett O'Hara of me...why do today what I can put off until tomorrow etc

So for once we took our time reading the papers. I actually fitted in a beautician appointment I haven't had time for. I finished a book I've been reading. I sat on the lounge and watched a movie. I had more family over for a lovely bbq lunch. Sound relaxing? It was! I suggest those of you who have been working madly like me, take a weekend and just chill out! I know that when we are ready for the next onslaught of jobs I'll be rested and ready to go again.

I did buy my flowers for my bedroom for this small but enjoyable job.

 Nothing nicer than having fresh flowers in the bedroom. Try it. I don't go silly and buy expensive - then I'd just feel guilty everytime I looked at them - but small and simple is nicer anyway I think.

I also enjoyed burning my new candle in my new candle/lantern thingy during Friday afternoon drinks.

And in other news, the render guy has started on our wall, planter box and letterbox. If the weather behaves it should be finished tomorrow, but I'm not sure how lucky I'm going to be with that. Snapped a quick shot or two on my way to my son's Oztag game.

 Really won't be long now until we tackle the front gardens and turf. We'll paint first but that shouldn't be too big a job (hopefully).

Pool is still moving along slowly. I'm eagerly, stressfully, anxiously waiting for the fence guy still...will be very relieved when he has done his job!

That is all to report for now. Those posters I ordered should have arrived by last Friday, so I will chase that up tomorrow. Back to work...can't keep putting it off as the deadline is looming closer by the minute!

  1. I'm glad you managed to have a nice relaxing (albeit, still a bit busy, with entertaining and kidlets etc!!!) weekend!

    Love the fresh flowers in your bedroom, I am content with fakeys for now. But, look out new house, I say!

    Good luck with your reports.
