I think I probably have a romanticised view of the relaxed, stress-free weekends that other people have and I don’t achieve but this weekend we had an unusually relaxed Saturday.
Music Centre cancelled – which meant that even though I wasn’t going to go anyway (due to bad weather) I now didn’t need to feel guilty about it either! So I spent a good chunk of the morning in bed finishing off my book, Martin brought me tea and chocolate digestives so it was a good and relaxed start.
Then a bit of time blogging about the snow.
Lunch of last night’s leftovers – nice and easy.
A trip into town where we only shopped in small independent shops, the butchers (ironically for vegetarian haggis), The chocolatier (Montezuma chocolate buttons), the health food shop (large packet dried yeast), the newsagent (The Guardian for a photography project for Rebekah) and Ginger the greengrocers for a chat with the lovely proprietor! Even Martin enjoyed the shopping trip and he usually hates shopping.
Back home and a lovely Baileys latte – but unfortunately not the champagne truffles I had been saving for this relaxed occasion as I realised I had accidentally packaged them and sent them off to my mum for her birthday – opps – will need to send the correct ones off! However I did have some of the Montezuma chocolate to have with the latte so it was still lovely.
Then reading the papers and a game of scrabble with Martin and Jonathan.
An easy dinner of bangers and mash.
A game of Carcassone.
A hot bath with choral evensong and a murder mystery.
An episode or two of Grey’s Anatomy
And off to bed.
This is the Saturday that I always imagine other people have and don’t usually manage myself, relaxed doing just what I feel like at the time, no hassle and no outside pressures – lovely. And it fits in with my new years resolution to be more idle and to read more 🙂
No pics in this blog post so martin won’t be happy!
