A solo shopping trip in Guildford on Saturday afternoon. As much as I love shopping with other people, every now and again there’s nothing nicer than being able to shop entirely at your own pace, and with nobody to dissuade you from buying four candles in one go ;) Also, Jason owning parking spaces in central Guildford will never not be amazing. I’m grateful for it every time we use them at the weekends, and don’t have to feed a meter with a billion pound coins!
Late night cinema trips. (We saw Before I Go to Sleep, and in spite of what some rather scathing critics might say, thought it was amazing!)
Salted popcorn + lemonade + peanut M+Ms. (Though the popcorn wasn’t as tasty as I’d imagined it would be. Isn’t that always the way with cinema popcorn?)
An impromptu catch up with friends on Saturday afternoon, and an even more impromptu garden centre shopping trip!
Making time for an at-home Body Balance workout on Sunday morning. Felt torturous beforehand (and during, too), but so amazing afterwards.
Brioche french toast with more crispy bacon and maple syrup than you could shake a stick at. (Seriously, it was incredible. Just the right amount of cinnamon on the toast, so much syrup I didn’t even need to ask for more, and plentiful bacon. Jason’s eggs benedict was pretty great too!)
Reading newspapers + magazines over coffee and eggs on Sunday morning.
Getting the house looking pretty much spotless by the end of the weekend. Jason took charge of bathroom cleaning + vacuuming, I did the dusting, tidying and laundry, and all in all, we made the house look pretty sparkly! It feels so nice to be starting out the week with a house that’s not nagging to be cleaned.
Reading magazines in bed, with a hot water bottle against my back.
Getting the ratio of time spent out and about, and time spent at home exactly right. For me, a great weekend is all about finding that perfect balance.
How did you spend your weekend? I hope it was a lovely one!
