  1. Family weekends are the best. We had my mum and dad round for dinner yesterday, I cooked roast beef and Yorkshire puddings and all the trimmings, it was lovely.

  2. I'm looking forward to the long weekend as well. You do sound as if you've been busy. I really must find more time for knitting and sewing, there never seem to be enough hours in the day! Hope you have a really good (short) week. CJ xx
