Sunday is my favourite day of the week.
Historically it was our day for lazy lie-ins, marathon weekend-paper reading sessions and lots of coffee.
These days a lie-in involves 3 children, lots of wriggling, many demands for more space, more stories, more cuddles and it feels like an escape to get up and get moving.
Today we escaped to the farmers market.
It was a beautiful morning - the sun tried to shine, we saw friends and drank that much-needed coffee.
We left with arms laden - farm fresh spuds, apples and greens. Bunches of daffies. A small pot of sprouts for school lunches. A taster of some amazing bikkies (I love that word so much more than cookie) that our friends bake there each week. That warm feeling inside from supporting our local farmers and provedores.
And as an added bonus we were there so early there was still enough day left for a gym class*, some gardening, plays with friends and time to cook a roast for the family that are arriving to stay tonight.
How was your weekend?
*Progress report on my little gym experiment - I have been going swimming and to stretchy class (yoga/pilates) at least twice a week - no waist yet and no other visible results but I feel better. Yay! And I had to buy new gym clothes so that was fun too.
