a little sunshine at last

The weather has been mostly grey, dismal and very wet here recently, and at the weekends a combination of weather and jobs to do has kept us at home. This weekend was a refreshing change. I've been -

Doing: grocery shopping, running errands, driving down to Leigh-on-Sea, visiting my parents for a cup of tea on the way home 

Eating: chocolate cake with orange icing, cucumber and salad cream sandwiches, houmous and pitta bread, the last of the Wensleydale cheese with cranberries leftover from Christmas

Drinking: full leaded coffee, lager, orange and lemon tea

Making: Finishing the vintage embroidered tablecloth I've been working on for a while, and trying to master intarsia on a hot water bottle cover 

Weekending with Amanda


  1. The weather in London yesterday was just absolutely glorious! We got out and made the most of it, and it felt so nice to spend a day in the sunshine!

  2. Love the second photo!! We have snow, gray days and I guess more snow in the forecast!! Snuggling under some knits for now.

  3. I think it's grey all over the globe these days! Another day of snow for us..... Enjoy your week!

  4. oh sunshine, glorious sunshine! and made magical with those reflections on the water.


please leave a comment or just say hello, I'd love to hear from you!
