I’ve decided to make this a Monday morning ‘thing’, mainly because I’m a bit weird and I like to be able to remember exactly what I was doing this time last week / year / month / decade and so these posts will serve me that purpose. Also *YAY* for my first post with an actual picture!

Despite Daddy working all day on Saturday we’ve had a really lovely weekend. On Saturday Hen & I went for a late breakfast with one of my best friends, followed by a lovely walk around town where we discovered a vegan food shop. I’m not a vegan, but I have given up refined sugar and so was pretty excited to find that they sold Ombar – a yummy refined sugar free chocolate. I’ll skip past the fact that it costs £1.99 for a teeny 35g. We spent the rest of the day in the garden watching our feral pug torture the neighbours.

Clearly wired from all the vegan-shop-excitement, Henry was up pretty much every hour on Saturday night, which left us pretty bleary eyed yesterday morning. I generally find that the best thing to do after a bad night is to argue with your husband about who is the most tired dust yourself off and get out, which is what we did, enjoying a delightful brunch with Henry’s soon-to-be Godparents and their beautiful daughter – our Goddaughter – like a big, happy Godfamily at Depot Bakery. We had a catch up and munched on eggs in various forms while the babies *ahem* ‘entertained’ our fellow diners with Halilit instruments. Later on in the day Henry’s other soon-to-be Godparents, who are about to spend the next ten months travelling the world, came to visit, which was just lovely, and may have included some slightly naughty grub.

Maternity leave has allowed me to truly appreciate Sundays, without anxiety about the working week ahead and I think these are the ones I’ll always look back fondly on. Henry is growing so quickly and I like to make sure we spend our weekends wisely.

What did you do this weekend? I’m always on the lookout for some weekend inspiration!
