Don't you love it when the weekend really starts on a Friday night? We went to a big organised bonfire night at Bolton Abbey on Friday night (seem to be at that place a lot don't we?)....
....a humungous bonfire with spectacular fireworks set to music.
Saturday morning and I wangled a teensy bit of cosy nesting in bed by myself with a hot cuppa and Christmassy inspiration.
Little Man's art work inspired by the fireworks, propped up on the mantel.
Also on the mantel, the first of this years hyacinths have arrived, yaaaayyyyy!!
Such blue blue skies we had over the weekend....
....and some wonderful and welcome sunlight streaming into the house.
I picked a few little flowers from my back yard...
...and now they are brightening up the bathroom. They make me sooo happy ♥
Loved watching Little Lady's meticulous colouring. She spent an age designing and cutting out her paper doll outfits.
And Little B learnt how to press the buttons to make his own music.
I visited a friend on the other side of town and marvelled at My Attic View as seen from her kitchen window.
Went shopping on Sunday for a spot of retail therapy and couldn't resist these beautiful baubles. They make me sooooo excited for Christmas!
Ahhhh the end of a wonderful weekend full of nothing-in-particular.
Love the fire.
Love my candles.
Love my flowers.
Love my views.
Love my home.
Love my family.
And thats all folks ♥ very brief indeed!
I am out the door now, out into the lashing rain to the pub to crochet, see you all again soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Edited to add :: the baubles came from Sainsburys, along with some fabulous giant-sequined garland in same colours (will have to show you that too). Fabulous.
And for those of you who've been admiring my handpainted glass tealight holders with the little beady wire hangers, they were summer purchases from Morrisons, a bargain at only 50p each.
