Casual Sunday


Today was a pretty casual & chilled out Sunday. We had all these plans for the weekend but then I got sick and the children haven't been very well either...plus Jonathan is still recovering from his surgery. So we laid low and barely did anything but I think we're all feeling a lot more relaxed & ready to tackle the week ahead! Our plan for today was to ease gently into braving the outdoors and do a spot of grocery shopping...like most times this ended up being an excuse to eat out for lunch on the way home ;) We went to Ask Italian, I ordered the goat's cheese salad followed by this beauty - a warm pear & almond tart which I drowned in cream. Yummy!! 


At Morrison's Disney DVDs were on special offer so we bought Pocahontas, Aristocats and Monsters Inc. After watching Monsters Inc. this afternoon I FINALLY convinced Emilia to let me put her hair up in pigtails like Boo! She looked adorable! She has even requested to wear her hair this way to preschool tomorrow (*squeals and jumps up and down triumphantly*)! I feel like I've won an award. Honestly...do you know how long this took!?! Emilia is wearing her new Minnie & Mickey pyjamas from Baby Zara. Oh, and see that pink hair tie on her wrist? She took it out of my hair accessories bag while I was putting hers in pigtails. When I was going to bed myself I discovered one in every other colour hanging off all the knobs on my large chest of drawers. That girl makes me laugh, even when she's asleep and doesn't know it!

  2. So happy to hear you and your family had a nice relaxing weekend. I watch your vlogs and you all live such a busy lifestyle, it's nice to know you are able to just turn it down a notch or two on some weekends. Sometimes the best living happens in the most boring of times! :)

  10. That sounds like the perfect weekend - desert & disney. What more could you want! I wonder if I could get away with doing this not having kids; might have to dress the dog up as Sully instead...

  14. So adorable! Those pjs are lush and the pigtails look brilliant on her! I'm sorry to hear you're all feeling a bit unwell, hope you all feel better soon - surely that delicious looking tart helped a little (if not I think it's time to get your cake baking bits out!). Sounds like a nice little family day and I'm now going to watch Monsters Inc because I've forgotten how brilliant a film that is!
