A long weekend + absolutely nothing planned + husband away for a couple of days
= the time for some serious pootling.
Now that's the sort of sum I like !
Nothing stressful, nothing of any great significance ... just simple, perfect pootling.
No meals needing to be cooked, no mounting pile of laundry, no clearing up after anybody.
There was time for kitchen pootling when my lovely circus heart light arrived in the post
and the right spot needed to be found for its new home.
There was gardening pootling, involving tidying of pots, a little replanting
and making tidy the corner by the back door.
There was sitting drinking tea in the sunshine pootling,
just enjoying the warmth of the sun and the smell of the lilac.
It would seem Lilou enjoys a bit of gentle pootling too.
And then there was even time for some wedding pootling
- slightly more organised pootling was needed here,
so a production line was set up with Beth on the sewing machine,
Meg on turning inside out duty
and me on pulling out the points and ironing duty.
A lovely afternoon passed with the sewing machine whirring away and
wedding songs being listened to and chosen.
And several hours, many cups of tea and about 50 metres of bias binding later
'Make Wedding Bunting ' is another thing
to be ticked off the wedding 'to do' list.
Truly a weekend of perfect pootling.
Here's hoping your weekend was also filled with
all the things that you wanted to do.
