This weekend we've been at home. After a long week of school and work it's nice just to stay here. Coffee and slow breakfasts. Walking the dogs in the grey early morning. Baking a chocolate cake (this one). Making a roast. Yes, there's washing and ironing and humdrum housework but there's also laughing with the boys over homemade pizza as they draw what's in their brains (and ours... Kevin's is mainly "dusty buildings" and mine "family"and "lovely mummy shops". There's also been the chance to read by the fire (the third book in the Cazalet series 'Confusion'). All fairly low key activities but enough to re-store our energy and get us ready for the week ahead.
