On Sunday morning we forewent the usual pancakes in favour of a rather unhealthy breakfast of panettone, and a chocolate chip one at that. Reminding me of a typical breakfast at my mother in laws, minus the nutella (and of which deprivation I was reminded by my kids, and husband). But it did go down pretty well with a good strong coffee.
Although there was much to do at home, as there always is, we went for a drive into town. Our small town was buzzing with the sound of live music and passing through motorbikes. So we grabbed some coffees and drinks at one of our favourite coffee shops, and parked ourselves on the provided mild crates and folded coffee sacks to listen to some folksy local talent.
Before we headed home for a busy afternoon of jobs, we stopped at the park. I'm not a huge fan of parks, but they're something you can't really avoid when you have kids. Whether they're two or ten.
Did you notice Violet's little dress? Craving a quick little sewing project on the weekend I made my first pillowcase dress. I followed this easy tutorial, using a vintage pillowcase, sheeting and a little quilting cotton for the pockets.
How was your weekend? I do hope it was a good one.
how cute is that car! the weather was lovely to be outdoors. penny is crazy about the park and although i find the crowds a little overwhelming we still find ourselves there quite a bit - it's hard to say no. your weekend looks like a good mix of food and fun. xoReplyDelete
Looks like you had a lovely weekend. I went to a baby expo where lots of clever mums held craft stalls. Bought some gorgeous things. Sunday was a lazy one. It has turned cold and rainy here............ReplyDelete

Sounds like a great weekend....we stayed home and got some planting in the vegie patch done with the twins...then fixed the chook fence after they got into said patch and dug around my new seedlings....hmmmm...have a great week x
We don't have Nutella here anymore either and a few other things that my family likes to remind of what they are missing. It looks like a fun day out and about, it's always nice to take some time out together to do something a little bit different. We had some time at home and on Sunday went to some markets which was fun, the weekend was too short as usual. Have a lovely Monday. xReplyDelete

Here...headed off for a potte around China town stopping for Yum Cha of course. Painting, painting, and more painting. The house kind so not terribly fun. LOvely all round though. WIshing you a gorgeous week :) xReplyDelete
