A weekend of ♥'s ...

Keeping in the spirit of St. Valentines this post is all about the things that I 
have ♥ed this weekend...

...Toasted Hot Cross Buns and tea after work on  Friday afternoon...

... one very spoilt dog curled up next to me on the sofa...

...some more wool for my wrap, so beautifully packaged from LoveKnitting...

... a Friday evening just knitting ...

...Saturday morning view from my bedroom window...

... the sun desperately trying to make its way through the clouds...

... a lovely morning making Save the Date cards with eldest daughter Meg, 
who got engaged last weekend !...

... finding cats in various places around the house making the most of the warmth..

(... definitely coming back as a cat., they are true masters of chilling...)

.... Open windows on Sunday morning, and SUN !!!! ....

... a big pot of homemade Ratatouille that will do dinner for the next couple of days ...

... my Valentines present from lovely hubby, it only took the smallest amount of persuading that we needed another heart in our house ...

...  its new home in the sunshine on the stairs ...

.... from tea infront of the fire on Friday to tea in the garden on Sunday morning...

... little bursts of Spring beginning to shine through ...

... and finally that by yesterday evening my wrap had grown this much...

.. little things I know, but all adding up to a very happy, homely weekend.

Those invites you made are just gorgeous, you clever girls! Loving all your cats around the house and yes that is surely what one calls kipping in style! I am with you all the way, I would love to come back as a cat, oh we can but dream. All mine does is eat and sleep and eat and sleep. Your garden looks gorgeous and I loved the aspect, so pretty. It sure looks like a lovely place to have some hot cross buns and a cuppa. Your 'rats' look delish too, we are big fans of ratatouille here. Love your pretty heart and I am seeing heaps of gorgeous progress with your knitting, you go gal!! Enjoy your week sweetie xoxo
