My Weekend

This past weekend was spent a lot closer to home.
It began with a cuppa and a catch up with my friend G.
There was lots to chat about and as usual we could have nattered the whole day away.

One job which really needed doing was tidying my wardrobe and chest of drawers. It didn't take long to sort and with some kind of order restored I took the opportunity to count how many cardigans I have. 
I admit they are my weakness. 
I counted 50. 
Perhaps, but I love them.

We weren't sure about going to the car boot on Sunday morning due to the overnight rain but decided we'd pop along to see what was to be had.
G picked up a stash of records which he was thrilled with and my best buy was this tin for 50p.
It's going to be one of the items in my mum's advent box of gifts. I just need to decide what treats to put inside. I'm thinking shortbread.

A short while was spent in the garden, filling up various pots with daffodil bulbs,

before spending some time indoors with glue and glitter. Our boss is retiring at the end of this week and she is having a bit of a do on Tuesday evening. Colleagues who have worked with her for a long, long time want to decorate the room where it's being held with some of photos of her from over years. I volunteered to make some glittery pegs to hang the photos up with, I thought this would look more fun and festive.

Time with friends and family, odd jobs completed and of course the start of Strictly all added up to a gentle weekend to savour.


  1. It sounds like a good weekend! I enjoyed watching strictly again too. Your glittery pegs would fit in well there and I am sure will make your colleague smile too! xx

  2. That sounds like a lovely weekend, a bit of everything all thrown in. That tin was a great find, once it's filled up with treats it will be a wonderful gift.

  3. Sounds like a good weekend! I watched Strictly too - couldn't believe how good some of the dancers were for week 1!

  4. Sounds a wonderful weekend ... especially with Strictly being back!
    Wow 50 cardigans does sound a lot!

    I love the tin you bought, it looks great.

    Festive pegs are a wonderful idea to add to the fun and I'm sure your colleague will appreciate them.

    All the best Jan

  5. Looks & sounds like a very busy but rewarding weekend!
    I'm not a big fan of talent shows but Strictly & Bake OFF are the exception to the rule. Hope this weekend will be just as nice for you as the last one!
