All too often I reach Friday evening rejoicing in the fact that it’s the weekend. Well now I’ve decided I should look back over the previous seven days and perhaps blog about fab things from the week.

My Dad is the king of digging, and so him and the hubby had soon cleared half the area. The best bit about this was spending a whole day with my mum, we had fun working up a design for a counterpane which I will hopefully finish soon. We rounded the evening off with a homemade curry – all recipes from the wonderful Rick Stein India book, one of my favorites. I love weekends like that.
