Weekend fun

Woo hoo – school’s out for summer! The end of term was pretty hectic, but we’ve had a more relaxed weekend, and it’s been good to start to catch up with ourselves a little.

Some beautiful things from the weekend:

1) Friday night dinner – delicious, eminently repeatable, and isn’t the colour fantastic? It isn’t every day you get a pink dinner!

 Beetroot risotto, topped with roasted beetroot and parmesan shavings.  

2) Saturday night clear-out…  we looked through the mountain of schoolwork brought home by the kids over the last few weeks, and reduced it to a few special representative items.

M found it a fairly easy process, A wanted to keep most of it, so a more painful process for him.  We hope he’ll thank us in twenty years time!

3) Sunday night reading…  I thought M might enjoy reading Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

She was initially a little daunted by the small text size, but gamely gave it a go, and has been glued to her book at every available opportunity ever since. She read two chapters yesterday. So proud of her 🙂 .

About Carolyn

This blog has served different purposes over the years - it started out following a Three Beautiful Things (3BT) structure: and I used to record three things, often the ordinary moments in life, which made me smile that smile. Then, I joined a community of knitters sharing my progress on what I was knitting that week. Now, after a long hiatus, I'm back to share an unusual new knitting project...
