Just Enough


It was one of those weekends where there was just enough going on in our days to keep us busy but not too much to feel overwhelmed.  We felt satisfied and happy with the things that we got achieved, there was a bit of couple time, some family time and some crafty time too, I like having that balance.  

There is just one more week of school left for my girls (where did this year go!) so on Friday night Miss 8 had her carols night, the first at her new school.  It's always a special time seeing your child up on stage singing their hearts out and smiling with delight as she does it, it was such a proud Mum moment for me.

Sunday was quite a productive day for me, I really need more of these with Christmas coming up lets hope so. I managed to finish off my ornament swap, I've been procrastinating on the finishing off of it but it's all done now.  It's just waiting to be wrapped and put into the post to my recipient. I also made some spoon stakes to give to my Nan for her birthday present, it's always fun doing a bit of hammering and banging of the constructive kind.

We then finished off the weekend with a walk together to explore a new park in our local council, it was good to get outside together.  

How was your weekend?  Was it a busy one?  I hope it was a good one.♥

  6. Your balance of weekend activities sounded perfect Catherine. I love the shot of Miss 8 - such a pretty photo of her :) And your ornament for your swap is gorgeous - your recipient is very lucky indeed.

    I'm starting to feel a tad overwhelmed by all the Christmas 'to-dos' as well - mainly sorting out gifts but I guess that's normal at this time of year :)

    Have a wonderful week x

  17. Those painted wooden poles are so cute! Sounds like a lovely weekend with beautiful weather. Your ornament is so pretty as are the spoons. Our school week began yesterday. I can't believe your girls are already gonna finish up with school? So strange how different your seasons and school year are way over there. :) We've had lots of rain today which is unusual for my corner of the world. Take care and have a great week. Tammy

  20. I just love your Christmas ornament. Stunning!

    And those spoons. I'm impressed that you made those yourself. I honestly thought..."yay, Catherine will let us know where she brought those from". You're a clever lady.

    I think these types of weekends are the best. The perfect mix of connecting, relaxing and getting a few things done.

    I hope you're having a happy week.

    Sounds like a wonderful weekend...i really need to try and factor in more couple time and crafty time...seem to be all focused on kid's at the moment!
