scenes from the weekend

Hello lovelies!
Hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful start to your week!
Here things are quite laid back; slowly but surely, I'm going through the stuff we brought back home - a couple of boxes here, a suitcase there...
This morning, when I proudly stated that we could finally see our floors, hubby answered :'what about the sofa?'
Ahem..., we have another one, plus a very comfortable armchair; what do we need our (now full of winter clothes to be sorted out and put away) smaller sofa?

Our weekend was a very good one.
There was ...

...reading a very interesting book in my comfy flowery pjs (and a cardigan; it was a bit chilly in the mornings)

...lots of playmobil action (after the caravan, knights, pirates and a castle came out of their boxes and mummy discreetly turned to her book -shhhh!)

...some yummy action in the kitchen (chocolate-nutella tart; most of it still in the freezer to tempt me - no, no, I need to lose some weight)

...a birthday celebration with just the three of us at home followed by dinner at a restaurant with friends (it was hubby's birthday, by the way)


...a family breakfast - pancakes + honey+ almonds. mmmmm blanket being put in good use by little one while watching cartoons early in the morning (good thing it's acrylic and not wool!)

...some (light) housework which resulted in fresh bedlinen (the piles of books are among the things that were revomed from the floor but have in fact nowhere to live!)

We also attended a Christening; my youngest nephew bacame godfather to a little girl and ...
watched the news... a lot :(

As you can see, regardless of the general chaos in my country, life at our little home is good.

Thank you all so very much for your lovely comments. It feels great to write 'I'm back home' and see that so many people I've actually never met understand what this means to me and feel happy for me. I'm so grateful for your being here!

Take Care!

I'm unhappy about the general chaos in your beautiful country and glad to hear that your little corner of the world is good!!! ♥

I loved that book by the way -- want to hear what your thoughts are when you are done...and I love the pjs with a cardigan!!

I have so many books on my floor because there is nowhere to put them...I think we must be sisters!!! :)

There truly is no place like Home and I'm glad to hear that you are back home once again. A chocolate and Nutella cake sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate hubby's birthday. Mmmm. Happy Birthday to him.

Sounds like a perfect way to spend time! Hope your husband had a good birthday and enjoyed his cake. So glad that amid the chaos both in your country as a whole and at home surrounded by unpacking you have managed to find a spot of tranquility. The sorting out will eventually get done I'm sure and in the meantime you can escape into your reading. So glad you are happy to be back where you belong.

It sounds like an absolutely wonderful weekend! And all the unpacking and sorting will get done in good time. :)

I wish it was cool here this morning. We're headed into a hot, humid, heat wave. Enjoy the coolness!

Happy Birthday to your husband:-)
The unrest is sad - I hope the problems will be resolved soon.
It's good to know that you're relaxing in your own home.
