weekend #7

I found another new favourite corner of my house this weekend...
The morning sun streams through this window into the downstairs loo and it's actually quite beautiful.

While couples all over the UK world more than likely enjoyed romantic strolls, candlelit dinners, boxes of chocolates and bunches of roses this past weekend, Hubs and I had a great weekend, filled with quality time spent together in the place we call home, the place that we fall more and more in love with every weekend.
For us, there was no need for roses and special dinners, because (while we can appreciate Valentine's Day for the newer couples out there), we don't feel the need to be soppy or over-the-top romantic towards one another one day a year; for us, it's the small details that happen daily that declare our love and commitment to one another. So, there's no sign of Valentine's Day anywhere on this post #sorrynotsorry #everydayisValentinesdayhere #not

It was a weird one weather-wise this weekend; I feel like I experienced every season going in the space of 48 hours.

Saturday was dull and the wind was bitterly cold, as we discovered while walking into town to run a few errands, which is why hubs treated us to Costa to warm our bones...

Once home from town, we followed up our Costas with a bowl of soup and some tiger bread...

Before I got on with the cleaning...

And Hubs did the food shopping and re-potted his beloved cactuses...

Knackered from our action-packed day, we tucked into a lazy tea of tacos and collapsed on the sofa...
And called it a night at 10pm #sorockandroll

We woke surprisingly early on Sunday, but time seemed to run away with us; I watched Chicago PD, while Hubs watched the footie; I mopped the floors while hubs sorted out the laundry; Hubs nipped out to get some ice cream while I had a quick shower; we put the roast dinner in the oven, as my parents came to ours this week...

After a roast and delicious puddings, my mum, Hubs, Izzy and I headed out for a long walk along the train lines. We left our house at 2:45pm to warm sun and blue skies...

But, 15 minutes from home, around 5pm, the dark clouds rolled in suddenly and the heavens opened, with an actual blizzard of snow...
It was crazy!!

We warmed up with hot chocolate and cookies, before waving bye to my parents around 6pm. Soon after Hubs' mum and step dad came over for a coffee and a catch up. 

I really do love our weekends and spending quality time with the ones we love, as well as one another. We've got a few job-filled weekends on the horizon, especially as the weather begins to improve and we can start tackling our garden project, so it's nice to make the most of the quiet, almost lazy weekends while we can.

Here's to a great week!
