9 :: days after purchase, my ranunculus are still going strong. Now that they’re fully open and wonderfully blousy, I’ve cut them down short and packed them tightly into little jars and bottles. They might be my favourite flowers I’ve ever had in the house.
2 :: train tickets to Edinburgh purchased! I’m very excited. Because Edinburgh will be wonderful, AND because I hate flying and now we don’t have to!
1 :: hour spent browsing Waterstones online straight after booking the train tickets, looking for books to read on the journey to Scotland.
10+ :: amount of bad words I said when I broke the mop partway through cleaning the hall and kitchen floor on Saturday.
3 :: episodes of Sex and the City watched later that afternoon, as a reward for managing to clean the floor with a broken mop.
2 :: hours spent using my dungaree pouch as a place to store a hot water bottle. Never been so cosy in all my life.
7.15 :: the time my Sunday morning alarm went off. The earliest I’ve been up at the weekend for a long while (I think since Teddy was a puppy!)
4 (at least) :: times my friend Cath and I walked up and down the Kings Road whilst shopping on Sunday. (Jason believes that the main difference between men and women is that men shop by walking in one continuous line down a street and in + out of shops, and women bounce at random from one shop and item to another. I can’t help but agree with him…)
4 :: the number of items coveted, tracked down, and bought from Anthropologie’s home department.
75 :: the percentage of those items that Jason actually likes. Unprecedented! I expected him to strongly dislike them all (our taste in crockery is so very different!)
8 :: the amount of hours straight Cath and I talked whilst shopping and driving and lunching and walking. My throat was actually sore in the evening.
1 :: Hummingbird Red Velvet cupcake brought home from London as a treat for Jason (+ 3 Ben’s cookies picked up on a whim on our way over to Hummingbird)
1 :: the number of Ben’s cookies that actually made its way back to Jason (I accidentally ate the other two on the journey home. Peanut butter, & white chocolate flavours. Uhmazing.)
10.30 :: the exact time I had a massive post-cookie sugar crash yesterday evening, and nearly fell over from tiredness.
3 :: photos taken this weekend. Just 3, and all on my iPhone. I accidentally took the entire weekend off from work, and didn’t shoot a single photo on my proper camera. It was hard not to feel guilty, but I think I kind of needed it.
Now tell me, how was your weekend? Did you do anything lovely? :)
