~ weekend snippets ~







 








We're still keeping our weekends low key.
A visit to Salamanca for apples, coffee, new plants for the garden and a chance meet-up with old friends.
Gardening, so many weeds to deal with.  Gorgeous roses to pick and delight in.  The chaotic beauty of the windflowers.
An afternoon tea with the friends who are family
Roast chicken and parsnips.
Amazing chalk art - we started drawing sea creatures as we talked about his excursion to the Marine Studies Centre this week but we ended up covering all the pavers with colourful art and he practised his letters over and over.
And candles for Earth Hour.

How was your weekend?

{all on the iphone - I really must make time to get the real camera out before I forget how to use it}

Linking up with Em and others who share the snippets of their days.

  13. sounds like a lovely weekend. We went down to the city to pick one of my brothers up from the airport and see my eldest brother (whom I haven't seen for two years) and have dinner with all my siblings. Sunday was recovering from the late, long drive home and a busy week.

  15. We cancelled our plans on Sunday in order to spend more time just us. Very domestic, but bliss. Chores and cuddles really. Soooo jealous of your time to snap (even if it is iphone) - I'm a bit stretched for time at the moment for that, as you would imagine. So very much enjoying looking at your photos though, as always. xx
