How was your weekend? Ours has been busy.
Saturday - we went into Cambridge for a spot of shopping and lunch. We dodged the showers and got blown about a fair amount. Nothing much was bought other than a top for the eldest's upcoming birthday and some t-shirts for the older boys. I can honestly say I dislike clothes shopping, maybe its my age, I just can't seem to find anything that floats my boat. I seem to spend my life in jeans and tops these days. I dread being asked to anything where I'll need to dress up. Put me in a yarn or craft shop though and I'll be as happy as a pig in clover.
I've been working on my Outing shawl, just 15 rows to finish, but as I have to increase 4 stitches every other row its just taking longer and longer each row. Plus the cable is getting a bit crowded. I can't wait to see the shawl released and blocking so that the pattern shows up properly

Sunday - Rachel and the children came for lunch so they could see Auntie BecBec before she goes back to France tomorrow. A full on roast, the yorkshires rose so much they were trying to get out of the oven, wish they did that every time I made them. Must admit I ate far too much, but still found room for the fruit crumble for dessert. I doubt I'll be eating anymore today though. The little ones had a fun time covering Beck with cushions when she tried to take an after lunch nap - that will teach her
The house is now quiet, cushions and throws back where they belong. Its been great having a family Sunday, we will be just us two again from tomorrow and back to our normal routine - I actually didn't think we had that much of a routine but clearly we do
