Memories from my weekend in no particular order...
Drinking champagne with my sister, to the sounds of Billie Holiday and the sight of these beautiful hydrangea.
Getting up late to find that she and Zebra-girl had filled the table with fruit, smoothies, yoghurt, dates and so many other very good breakfasty things.
Going to watch my lovely husband sing, while sat at a table overflowing with friends and family and rather too much to drink.
Lighting a bonfire at half-past midnight and sitting out eating Marmite and melted cheese on toast.
Watching the wonderful ballerinas from the Royal Ballet School perform in their annual matinee with my sister, Zebra-girl and lovely Mama.
And the happiness of sitting on the sofa wearing the new nightie that my sister bought for me, adoring the little lines of pintucking that run around just above the hem, and looking through photos from an utterly wonderful weekend.
Memories not pictured here:- a couple of sunlit hours spent in the park with my sister and Zebra-girl; eating amazing food in a quirky new restaurant; spotting peacocks in Holland Park; a scrambled egg breakfast rustled up by Mr Teacakes; lunch in the garden with friends beneath a very wonky parasol (with one person on keeping-the-parasol-upright duty at all times); seeing a sweaty-headed Dinosaur-boy asleep in my father's arms after staying up too late; eating peanut butter ice-cream from the most wonderful ice-cream shop imaginable; my mobile phone beeping as lovely pictures arrived from Mr Teacakes of the bike rides that he and Dinosaur-boy were taking. While some weekends seem to disappear in a haze of uneventful time happily frittered away, others seem to be packed full of a summer's-worth of treats.
What did you get up to?
