Me On a Monday

This Monday, you'll find me a bit disheveled after a long play at the park with the bears. Simon has today off, so we took them earlier for a good run about, and it was lovely, we almost had the whole place to ourselves.  The bears still have selective hearing when called, so they stay on a training lead, but I think soon, we'll try them off.  Scary stuff.
We had such a lovely weekend, but different from the one we had planned, but isn't that always the case. Friday night saw us having our friends over for dinner. I'm incredibly lucky to be living right next door to one of my closest friends.  We had a wonderful evening
Then Saturday, instead of going to the little house, we took a quick trip into Dorking, and I bought some lovely fabric at a sale for my project to cover our chairs with patchwork remnants. I also may have bought a couple of extra mugs to add to my Emma Bridgewater collection. And my Christmas jumper arrived (well, only 67 days to go, you know).
Sunday saw me moving our dining room back to an actual dining room.  For a long time now, it's had the puppy play pen in it (well after it was a trial office and craft room). But now the bears sleep in the kitchen, I can reclaim my home again.
By the way, I'm thinking of dying each of the chair covers, different colours .... what do you think? They're white at the moment (and really that doesn't work in this house lol)

The evening was finished off watching strictly with the bears asleep and a box of Matchmakers ... bliss.

So there you have it. Oh and where is a photo of me this Monday. Actually shock horror! Simon took one of me trying to have a coffee and reading a magazine after our walk.  Well, I did say disheveled, didn't I?
Wishing you all a lovely week; I'm a bit behind in my blog reading, so hoping to catch up this week.

    1. I've only seen the tiny mug in a Christmas brochure they sent me, I've not yet seen it in real life ... although I have actually put a page marker on it, just in case a certain hubby is looking as to what to buy me for Christmas lol xxx

  6. Lovely photos Sandra.
    I love the Christmas jumper and your dining room is looking great (what sort of colours are you thinking of for the chairs? - Duck egg, soft caramel, sage?)
    Have a super week

    1. yes Toni, you're right, I was looking at the soft blue, its not quite as duck egg as I would have liked, also at the lavender, the sage and there is a pale pink ... but I think that will be too light.

  7. Such a FUN photo of you - sounds like y'all have been quite busy! Isn't it funny how the bears have "selective hearing!"

  9. Lots going on there, sounds like a lovely weekend. Those fabrics are so pretty, and I'm die-ing to know to what color you change the chairs.

  10. It sounds like you had a really lovely weekend and I'm so jealous that you went to Gerties and got all of that fabric. I think you should dye the chair covers. I love your Christmas jumper, I've actually tagged you in a Facebook post that I think you'll like :) xx
