weekend #39

Oh I love three-day weekends...
As Hubs and I celebrated six years married on Sunday, we decided to take Monday off work and spend the day together and it was glorious. I wish every weekend was three days long; three days allows you the time to get shit done while still having fun and spending some quality time together!

We were up and about early on Saturday as this was the day we'd delegated to be productive...


We went into town and ran some errands, including fixing Hubs wedding ring which bent out of shape a few weeks ago when building the raised bed in the garden :) We also called into a Macmillan coffee morning being held by Tom's friend who fitted our wardrobes and kitchen breakfast bar last year...

Once home, we had a spot of lunch before commencing more chores, including cleaning, laundry and mowing the lawn, possibly for the last time this year... 

We decided not to go out for an anniversary meal this week (we'll do that next weekend) so I made veggie tacos...

We then spent the night killing time and waiting until 1:30am...
...when we were fortunate to be on a rather exclusive invite list; we got to watch my beautiful blogging bestie, Kelly marry the move of her life, Ben, via Facebook Live. It was such a beautiful and heart-felt ceremony (the vows bought a tear to my eye) and I'm so thrilled that she was able to find a way for us to be a part of it. We would have so loved to have made it to Washington State for the big day, but it was not to be :( However, we didn't feel left out; I just wish we could have boogied the night away with her and her lovely friends and family!

Despite the late night, I was awake early on Sunday, so I left Tom sleeping, got up and had some breakfast.

 Once Tom was awake, we exchanged cards and opened others from family...

Before heading over to my parents' house for a roast dinner, I cleared out the summer plants from my planters/tubs and planted up a spring bulb lasagne; this one contains irises, daffodils and crocuses.

After dinner, we took Izzy on a longgg walk...
...before calling in to Tom's mums for a catch up and a pizza supper. Tired from our long walk and our late night, we hot the hay pretty early...

...and enjoyed an alarm-free, lazy Monday morning; we chilled in front of the TV for a while watching crappy morning TV (mainly Homes Under The Hammer) and warmed up with a bowl of soup for lunch before heading out for a hand-in-hand stroll around a local reservoir...
Thankfully, the rain didn't spoil our day off work, but today has been the Mondayest-Tuesday for a long time!

Here's to a great week,
