couch time...

things don't always go according to plan...
I had hoped to take myself for a pleasant Saturday drive up to Daylesford today, a bit of wander through the gorgeous streets, markets & country side all on my own, pleasing myself, doing what I love in my own sweet time.  But my head feels like a giant putty ball, my eyes are in & out of focus, I'm sick!  As much as I've tried to convince myself otherwise, the reality is I'm in no shape to drive...

So it's a bit of quiet hooking time tucked up on my nana couch with a warm lemon-y concoction & some mindless movie watching for now...

Our house is unusually peaceful.  All the boys doing their own thing, playing happily.  Hubby's catching up on some work, organising his week ahead before he spends the rest of the afternoon in the garden.  I do love these weekends (apart from the feeling crappy) when we are all just content at home, with no plans & nowhere we need to be.  I am grateful this week that we don't have anything we must do, sometimes a bit of couch time is exactly what we all need...

what are you grateful for this week? Pop on over to Maxabella's and join in..

  3. isn't that nice?! with the exception of the whole feeling sick thing. Relaxed days at home are wonderful, we are having one right now. It is great not to have anything to do for one whole afternoon - very rare pleasure indeed

  10. You poor thing. I hope you are feeling on top of the world by now.
    And Daylesford will wait but you must reschedule because that did sound like a great thing to do.
