I am hopeless. This weekend I checked the diary and saw that the weekend was free. And for most people that would be a chance to relax, read, get stuck into the garden and do, you know, nothing. For me though, I get itchy feet. I can’t sit still. And while we had a day yesterday to do all of the above, today it was not going to happen. We were forecast 15 degrees and sunshine so of course that meant a long lunch to me. A text later to Neighbour and we were sorted. Lunch. 1.30pm. DONE.
It wasn’t anything fancy – a couple of roast chooks, some salads, some cheese, some store bought desserts and some champagne (OF COURSE) but it was JUST what the Dr ordered. Some old friends. A completely relaxed afternoon. Kids playing, picking flowers and running around. Adults having a big laugh and catching up on lots of things. These are the kind of afternoons I thank my lucky stars that we live where we do. Live in the little village that we do. Have made friends with all the wonderful people that we have. Nothing fancy. No bullshit. Just a lovely afternoon.
I made a couple of roast chooks. We had risoni salad. I outsourced dessert which meant that it was outsourced to Gumnut patisserie. And I did my old favourite of a block of Lindt chocolate on the table for the adults. And can we take a moment to look at my hellebores?!
Hope you had a great Sunday doing whatever it is you did.
What DID you do?
