Weekend Gardening

You know when your weekend feels like a week long holiday? 
We've had one of those. 

The sun was shining, a warm breeze was running and there was no surf, so we got to keep Dave to ourselves all weekend. Bliss.

 We went for beach side scooter rides, beach side chicken salted hot chips and beach side burgers. We were beach side most of the time. But never were we in the water, not one of us*.

When we weren't by the ocean's shore we were in the garden preparing for spring, for which we were rewarded by the warmth of the sun on our backs.

I hope you all had an awesome weekend too!

* with the exception of Zephie, who gleefully ripped off his pants and splashed about in the shallows at every available opportunity.



**P.S so sorry that I forgot to announce the winner of this giveaway sooner, head over here to see if it was you.

  4. Your weekend sounds so lovely!! I was just saying to my husband how our weekend was just a blur of changing nappies, pram pushing and breastfeeding a baby who doesn't really like sleep...I need the week to recover ; )

  5. Oh yay for you having a wonderful and I presume snot free weekend. That baby girl of yours just looks cheekier every time we see her. We had a little sun, less snot and some scootering so all is good here too. melx

  6. what a lovely weekend! Beautiful images.

    We had much the same, minus the green thumb. Loads of beach, scooter action, and so much sunshine. I am grateful for the pupil free day tomorrow to spend one more awesome day with my girl on her own. Enjoy your week x

  9. Looks like an ace weekend. I am trying to figure out what to plant in our little patch at our new place. But really I have only got so far as to put on some gloves, and stand, leaning on a shovel, saying "I think it needs poo, darl". I have no clue.
