This weekend was so different in it’s two days. 
Not only the weather but in activities too. 
Saturday was busy busy, with the school street party. 
I helped in the Butterfly Cafe, serving delicious cakes and quiches.  The queue was non-stop…I haven’t been so busyat work  since my days as a waitress!
Charlie took part in SportsStars.  He and class mates ran around playing British Bulldog and other games, which ended up in giggling chaos as none of them new the rules. 

After the streetparty we went to witness the beautiful naming ceremony of little Violet.  Such a tender, happy, loving ceremony.  Delicious cakes and pink champagne.  Held in the most amazing building…the University and Literary Club.  Thank you Cathy, I can’t stop thinking about it.  I love my flowers & little pot of  (Violet) Marmalade.

Sunday, gosh didn’t rain?! 
I didn’t leave the house. 
Instead we did a bit of crafting and I made a star garland for the boys room. We had a puzzle and game marathon and then settled down to watching Tangled DVD with popcorn and hot chocolate.

I am so pleased to see the sun today.
Have a great week.
