Bits of the weekend

We finally got round to seeing Avatar which was amazing, went to St Albans to see our friends Emma & Alex, ate way too much delicious Indian food which Henrik and Alex worked of with a hilarious dance off on the Wii! We are now just relaxing at home enjoying this last rainy day of February, hoping that the arrival of March brings a blue sky!

I heart Donna Wilson

I'd like all of these Donna Wilson goodies from SCP, but it aint gonna happen! (Sadly!)

Today I have been on the first day of a two day Makaton course and I feel totally overloaded with information! It was so much fun and Im amazed that in just one day I learned to sign so many useful things! Im totally exhausted now though and need an evening on the sofa doing nothing more taxing than lifting the remote control!

Sunny Saturday

Its a beautiful sunny day here in London, not sure when we will get out as Henrik has not surfaced yet (he has become totally obsessed with the Winter Olympics,shouting loudly at the TV in Norwegian) after only getting to bed at 5am. Im hoping for a walk up to Hampstead later but who knows??

Today involved dropping Henrik at the station, shopping for clothes for school (things I dont care if they get covered in paint,clay,playdough,snot etc!) doing a food shop, making the Door Sixteen chili again,listening to Doves and Kasabian,watching Glee,making some blueberry jellies
and contemplating making a blueberry cake from The Hummingbird Bakery book.
I might go and get a manicure later cause my hands/nails are so horrid from the cold weather....

This morning

Im taking it easy, lay in bed drinking coffee (I have a whole pot next to the bed so I dont have to move a muscle, lazy huh?) and reading magazines.

Its half term holiday and Im halfway through a week off work. Just put my mum on the train to Liverpool after having her stay for a few days, now I have the rest of the week for myself.... lovely!
Managed to find a few junk shop treasures when up in Liverpool at the weekend-a glass cakestand,cups and saucers and a few little jugs (and new Converse as a Valentines present from Henrik,to replace my sorry looking, battered old pair)
