A Perfect Weekend
We have just returned from what I can only describe as a perfect weekend. It started on Friday when we headed back over to Sheffield to see my family, which was lovely - it was especially nice to see my niece Sophia again, as we haven't seen her since Christmas (she is 9 months old). My mum had made this lovely rag doll for Georgia, she had made me one when I was 9 years old - except mine didn't have legs! - Mum tried to pass it off as a nightdress case, but I was relieved to see that Georgia's did indeed have legs, which were clothed in lovely rose print panaloons. While we were in South Yorkshire we had a few other jobs to do, such as a visit to the dentist (no work needed) and a visit to our accountant to drop off all the books I finished the other week.
On Saturday, Tim and I had the luxury of a whole day together alone - Tim's Dad offered to babysit, so we headed off to Meadowhall to get a few bits for our holiday - It was lovely to wander around, without children, as all of you with children will appreciate - clothes shopping and children don't mix! - After shopping, we called in at a lovely country pub for a spot to eat and a glass of wine before heading back at about 9.30pm - where we sat in the garden until it went so dark we couldn't see - we had a great laugh watching some home videos from the 80's and 90's - I kept my eyes peeled for anything that might be worth £250 on you've been framed but no such luck!
Sunday, was of course Georgia's 2nd Birthday and we couldn't have asked for better weather - We headed off to Rosehill Park in Rotherham for a birthday picnic and quite a few games of cricket - It was quite simply a perfect day - We went well equipped with lounger chairs, umbrella, picnic table and loads of food and stayed in the park until about 7.30pm. Great Grandma Mary (Tim's stepmums mum) was the best - at 86 years old she was our cricket teams star fielder - I only hope I am that agile at 86! - Georgia had loads of lovely presents and the homemade cakes and tea set went down really well (especially with the adults).
So we are now back at home in Filey and looking forward to lots more sunny days! Hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed the weather too - I will be posting another corner of my home later in the week - Thanks for reading - Natalie x
