All in a Weekend

This weekend seems to be passing really, really fast and I know I shouldn't be sat at the computer - hey ho!

But with a lazy Sunday afternoon curling around us, Mr T busying himself at the allotment and the little ones engrossed in popcorn and a movie I thought I would take this brief time to upload my weekend pictures.

We spent most of yesterday down on the beach relaxing, playing, generally mucking around and putting the final touches to the beach hut.....more shelves, bunting, having a good old sweep and clean and jollying around.

But most of our weekend has been dominated by cooking!

{Mr T's famous king prawn green curry}

Why? Wellllll......................basically we've been without a cooker for a whole week - uh huh.

A gas leak found in the oven, a week later of cooking on the barbecue (oh the joys - though I was starting to get quite imaginative) whilst waiting for a new thermostat to be delivered and installed was eventually starting to take it's toll.

But with all fixed and mended on Friday left me hugging, kissing and whispering sweet nothings to the cooker and on a promise of chocolate cake baking with of course the all important bowl to be licked out. I have somewhat had the urge to cook.

Cookies, cakes, oatcakes, biscuits and waffles - all good wholesome healthy (yeah right!) stuff and the house has smelt soooooo homely.

Though with tins now bursting with homemade goodies I think I'm well and truly done with all this baking lark and we've enough to last the whole week including inviting friends for tea, mates after school, play days and snacking, a jolly good stash to keep us going.......and then some.

Well my pictures have finally finished uploading and I really should go and join the rest of the family.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope that your nice and chilled.
