A perfect Day...



I Love Sundays.....

For so many years-especially when my step children were small- my Husband has worked on Sundays...

So weekends were snatched here and there,he spent Saturday with the children while I managed a shop- then worked in my own shop...And I spent my Sundays alone (happily) or with the children (not always happily-but mostly!)

A routine that over the years has changed beyond all recognition...

My Husband now rarely works the evenings,nights or weekends that he used to, the children (adults now) are away at University, so....

Sundays have become the most perfect day! 

The days usually begin with breakfast in bed....

Followed by...

Papers-also in bed...

Then some of this.....

I love to read and at the moment have some of my Christmas books still to read...
 
So spent most of today curled up with this....

 
 And have thoroughly enjoyed it, it is a love story but it is also about the power and beauty of books.... and the way they can shape us...


Next on the list...by another Cally AND about Christmas- got to give that a go!
 
Next on the Sunday to do list is this...
 
 
 With a glass or two of...


After which we both feel rather.....
Ah its a hard life....
 
We commented today how lucky we are to have our weekends...
 
  Back to the real world tomorrow!

 
Warm Wishes for a Wonderful Week,

Sounds like the perfect day to me! Cozy days at home are the best in this miserable kind of weather. Your pictures look so inviting!

Sounds like a perfect day! I rarely get time to myself and when Sophie is at nursery and James at work I spend the whole time running round doing housework, washing or running errands. Today I have made myself sit down for an hour and have some time to do what I like! We work some weekends too and I really miss James and Sophie when its my turn to work!!
