Pictures, words

Saturday morning
Running around
Chopping wood
Getting splinters
Setting fires
Stacking piles
Sweeping leaves
Cooking casseroles
Flowers in vases
Guests calling to tell us they weren’t coming

Saturday afternoon
A trip to the pub regardless
Playing in afternoon sunshine
Soaking up the wintery vistas

Saturday evening
A fire on the verandah
Champagne & cheese with neighbours
World’s most overtired 4 year old losing her shit completely
People (strangers) down the road coming in to check everything was ‘alright’
Mortified & embarrassed parents
Parents being hard on each other to each other
A baby that woke
A mother that sat on the floor, in the cold and waited for sleep to come

Sunday Morning
Classical music and coffee
Playing in the morning sunshine
Tea and toast
Fires cleaned and set
Lunch prepared
Visitors arrive
Settle in for a looooooong afternoon of food and wine
