(I finally weakend and bought these embroidered anenomes at the Flea Market)Yesterday was my out and about day/busy, busy day. Off to town nice and early to pick up mountains of deliciously fresh fruit and veg from the greengrocer and some provisions from the butcher, the dairy and the fishmonger's stalls in the Butter Market.

In the afternoon B and I set to on the house (which for now he really enjoys doing so I'm milking it), aired rooms, changed beds and hoovered with a vengeance. Four hours later (!) it looks as smart as I can ever get it and, although it won't last long, I feel friends with our home for the moment.
And then last night Woody and I went out - on a date! He's been planning it for a while, something different for the two of us to enjoy, so the grandparents arrived after tea, we kissed two pyjamed chaps (with an evening of fun ahead of them) goodbye and headed off on our own to the flicks!

We've worked out that its three years since we went to see a grown ups film (Ice Age 3 doesn't count). Attached to the univeristy in the city is the small but perfectly formed Film Theatre and we turned up last night at a rather civilised 7.30pm (when we occassionally go out its usually after bedtime so almost 8.30/9pm before we arrive anywhere), took our seats with a packed audience and watched the charming An Education. It was just our sort of film; moving, heart rending and beautifully shot. And it was the most delicious thing to look at too; lovely interiors, glamorous locations and the most fabulous clothes.
On the way home we called in at one of the village pubs run by some friends and enjoyed a cosy hour or so having a giggle and indulging in a spot of people watching. It really was a very special evening, bless my Woody. Thank you.
So today has been ultra relaxing, a bit of pottering about with these new vintage finds (which are all very floral because I need flowers to keep me going until Spring), planning some food for later (a roast chicken and veg I think), doing the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch with the boys, looking forward to curling up to watch Lark Rise later and generally enjoying being at home.

A fine weekend indeed, enjoy yours and hope the sun keep shining.
