On Friday evening, to help ease us into the weekend, we all snuggled down on the sofa (with popcorn) to watch Bewitched. I had no idea what to expect as I hadn't read any reviews but it was entertaining, just not up to the normal Nora Ephron rom com standard. I think that had something to do with Will Ferrell as although he was funny in parts I just don't see him as romantic lead material, his eyes are too small!
Saturday we had a picnic in the park and then S spent ages playing in the playground. Her teddy from T has now been put to one side and the current favourite is this one accompanying her on the seesaw and wearing her cardi.
On Sunday morning I prepared this french toast bake for us to have after our roast beef and as there were lots of crusts left over S and I took a wander down to the local pond to feed the ducks where the crumbs were also very much appreciated by the water rats.
In the afternoon I set about with this to change the porch from the peeling white paint you can see here
to the Hot Brick painted porch you can now see here.
Not sure G likes it as he has only commented on how dark it looks, but I really like it. I think it feels quite cosy and welcoming. It needs another coat and the door needs a touch up of varnish too. Also the window sills need to be painted as these now look even grubbier. One job just leads on from the next doesn't it, but I don't mind, I've made a start and it'll all get done.
One thing that can now be put to use is this cream and pink flower bucket I bought in a charity shop last week, it's going to be handy for wet umbrellas.
