On Saturday morning we ran errands (including pre-ordering a much awaited, and saved for, new Pokemon game - just a few more days to wait, Cameron!) and a great chance to chat before swimming lessons. The afternoon was spent gardening. My overwintering plants are looking OK so far, fingers crossed.
On Saturday evening we made kale crisps and settled down together to watch the Hungry for Change film which was really eye opening for both of us and led to Cameron deciding to drop his usual morning cereal and switch to green smoothies with me. We also ordered a juicer which I'm very excited about!
Sunday began with a lovely walk, checking out the autumnal changes and searching for conkers (is there a conker shortage where you are, too?).
We were enchanted by some gorgeous Scottie dogs at the park that looked just like fluffy, beardy Moomins!
I'm especially enjoying chatting with Cameron at the moment, he's in such a great place - one minute we can be walking among the trees and making up stories with our imaginations and the next we can be having such a deep and grown up conversation. He is such a joy to spend time with.
Chicken miso ramen was requested for Sunday dinner and so our home filled with the aroma of bubbling broth - so comforting! - and much knitting was done whilst we discussed the wives of King Henry VIII to complete Cameron's homework.
In the midst of it all I dug my flannelette bedding out and it was such a cosy treat to slip between the sheets when all of my chores were completed on Sunday evening.
Despite the chill in the air, the sun is shining again this morning and I'm feeling optimistic for the week ahead. How was your weekend?
