The Weekend

Monday, February 03, 2014

This weekend was a good one. Like, a really good one! The sun was out and even though it was still freezing cold, those beautiful rays of sunshine streaming down onto our skin was enough to put us all into the best mood. We spent most of it out and about, stopping in various café's and restaurants and generally trying to find any excuse not to return home. I was feeling better than I have done in a few weeks, though not quite up to dragging a camera around with me. Instead I captured this weekend on my iPhone.

We spent Friday doing arts and crafts. I literally got everything out. Paint, coloured lolly pop sticks, feathers, glitter. Needless to say it was very messy, but worth every splodge of paint just to see Alice's creations!
 Those colours! She just didn't know what to do first! Hehe!
 We went to soft play on Sunday afternoon where we could get some tea and Alice could jump about like a little monkey! 
 We found a lovely gelato place to have a snack at on Saturday morning. It was Alice's first taste of gelato and she loved it. I have never been so proud... :)
And if you follow me on twitter, you'll know that I have been going on and on and on about wanting a Big Mac for ages. Well, I finally got one. And... I was disappointed! It tasted of pure salt and I could only manage half :( Not sure if this is because I haven't had one for so long or if they had just dropped the salt pot in it... 
And for anyone wondering, I don't buy Alice McDonalds yet. The truth is, she just doesn't like them and would prefer to sit there with her ham sandwich. I did get her one of those Robinson fruit shoots which she loved, though I'm sure there must be a ton of sugar in them... oops! 

Hope you all had a fab weekend! Lets hope the sun stays out a little longer!


  1. It sounds like a great weekend! It's amazing what a difference a little bit of nice weather can do to your mood, isn't it?! I love seeing all that painting fun!

  2. Sounds like you guys had a great wee weekend. Good on Alice liking Gelato, I've yet to taste the stuff, haha!



I love hearing your thoughts... (And don't forget to follow me too!)
