Well we’ve managed a very full weekend for next to nothing. Yesterday a friend and her little boy came over for coffee in the morning which turned into a whole day affair. I managed to scratch lunch together for everyone out of the last few bits in the fridge and cupboard (pasta and mushrooms in a home-made cheese sauce). The kids had fun running around and when they got a bit stir crazy we took them off to the park. My friend treated them to an ice cream on the seafront (kids don’t seem to notice how cold it is when there is ice cream involved!) as we had done lunch. Husband and I watched something on Lovefilm Instant in the evening which we’ll probably do tonight provided baby hoy settles – I’m currently obsessed with the TV series Blue Bloods.
Today we had some other friends over for lunch with more kiddos tearing around the place like mini tornados. I confess I am quite knackered after hosting two days in a row so I’m hoping for a chilled out morning tomorrow. Well, as chilled out as it can get with a newborn and a 3 year old!
The only spending we had to do this weekend was to buy a few bits to make lunch today (we would have to have bought something anyway as the cupboards are bare) and we’ve seen lots of friends which has been great. Hopefully I’m on a roll!
