Wow!! What a busy weekend I've had! Not much time to sit around and relax as such! Friday Grace was still rather poorly so we had a quiet day at home, Simon watched her for me in the afternoon for a few hours whilst I went and had my hair done, I've had about 5/6 inches off!!!!! It was very long before and now it sits on my shoulders, it's layered a lot so it's got lots of shape whereas before it was long and cut straight. It's cut just beneath my face around the front so quite short in comparison to what I'm used to! It feels so much better though, I had some highlights put in too. We managed to go and see my Dad late afternoon as it was his Birthday, he liked the card I made for him from Grace and Simon & I.
Saturday, Grace was getting much better and we took a trip up to a large garden centre which has an aquatics department, we bought Dad some fish for his Birthday. My Mum and Dad had Grace stay with them on Saturday night, I was a little concerned about whether to leave her or not as she still wasn't 100% but she was fine, she had a lovely time and slept until 9am this morning!!! She was so ttired this afternoon too that she had a nap on the sofa (we're battling over day time naps at the moment!) Simon and I went out to a friend's Birthday party last night, we had a lovely night, greeted with a Pimm's reception and the most delicious food, a HUGE variety of scrumptious handmade desserts (which were amazing!) and then a spread of cheeses and to top it off handmade chocolates!!! We were fit to burst afterwards! We had a good old dance and then cosied up around a fire. We were absolutely pooped though and decided to call it a night at around midnight, we were shattered - I guess the last week or so has been rather mentally exhausting, Grace is getting better though each day and finishes her medication tomorrow again so fingers crossed!
I cooked the most delicious roast chicken dinner this evening, including some fresh carrots pulled from my veggie patch, they're my first ones of the season and were delicious, so sweet and the seemed to "melt" they were so tender. Oh and my butternut squash has lots of flowers and the beginnings of the squashes are showing too YIPEE!!!!
