This weekend was a perfect mix of busy and quiet, full of time spent with family and funny conversations.
As I mentioned yesterday, I managed to see all on my siblings this weekend. My dad, Little L and I drove up to Wales for the day to see my grandfather, and called in to see C while we were there. En route home, we managed to get hold of J, and we popped into Brizzle for a coffee with him, where we accidentally found a Gromit (above).
We decided that Mickey might like to see where he was going. He also helped Little L with I Spy- she seemed to struggle to grasp the concept, as when it was her turn she started with "I spy with my little eye something beginning with L", only ten minutes later to tell us that of COURSE it was "spider". Gotta love four-year-old logic...!
Sunday involved running (and the now classic reservoir picture), a farmer's market with Mama CupandSaucer, telling Mama about the blog ("it's, er, like a website, where I write about things I like and have been up to and stuff" "Oh... That's nice darling."), baking lemon and blueberry cake for my work colleagues, an exceptional sunset I failed to sufficiently capture, and a pub quiz with E (the final sibling). We came fourth from bottom, but it was a valiant effort, and I argued with the quiz master over whether Lihou is permanently inhabited (I was right. It isn't)
