Not a great picture I'm afraid, still getting to grips with all the dials - and with my old eyes!!! But you get the idea. I found myself at a loose end this morning. Hubby working all weekend (which I hate) The Dancing Queen had gone off to her Dance Class, The Young Man was still in bed, so I made a delicious bacon, cheese and onion panini, full pot of coffee, and settled down with my recent library book, Hughs Rivercottage Family cookbook - breakfast Alfresco - the best start to the day. Once the Young Man had arisen, and couldnt find any friends to entertain him, I decided that he and I should go for a long walk. We walked for 3 hours and enjoyed conversations about Playstation3's, cars, Jeremy Clarkson, jobs he wants to do when he is older (anything with a "geo" in the title) the subjects he is going to take at school next year(he will be year 10 then), the new and revolting flavour's of Walkers crisps etc etc. Whilst I could not add an opinion about most of the topics (!!!) I really enjoyed his company and realised that he and I don't get to spend all that much time on our own together these days. It was lovely. We got back home and I baked Lavender Shortbread - I had saved some lavender from last year and had been infusing it in sugar. It was delicious.
You may have noticed - as did the hubby on his return from work - that not much housework has taken place here this weekend. I did point out, and this is a little known fact, that it is actually against the law to do housework on sunny weekends. Well it is in my world anyway.
