Meet Me On Monday - 11

Happy Monday!

Wow, I've just realised that Monday is nearly over and I'm only just posting my MMOM update, really sorry about that.

It's been the first day of the Autumn half term holidays today and the kids and I have had a p-j day (although I did insist we all got dressed when we went to the supermarket!).  I guess that should have meant that I've had lots of time for blogging, but somehow the day has just got away from me a bit. However, I intend to be a bit more disciplined with the rest of the week.

This week I'm

Wearing: my new pin that I picked up at our weekly Antiques Market. It's a brooch, made from felt, from the 30s - it had my name written all over it.

Making: a new tunic mini dress, using this lovely Amy Butler pattern bought at CallyCo in Cambridge yesterday.  Off to buy the material tomorrow - very excited!

Visiting: Cambridge on a perfect Autumn afternoon, for a play in the park.

Eating: Seafood Linguine at Carluccio's
Listening to: Magic Numbers. Oh how I wish I could sing like that ....
Cooking: French Toast - the perfect p-j day breakfast!
Watching: Scooby Doo - those pesky kids
Loving: Spirograph (yes, Spirograph, remember that?) I picked it up for 20p at an Autumn Fair I went to on Saturday afternoon. I had totally forgotten how addictive it is - love it!

So how was your weekend? What do you have planned for the week ahead? What is influencing you at the moment? Do join in - the more the merrier!

Have fun. xx

Ohh, I've not had a pj day for ages - sounds fab! Love the brooch too. I was at the museum on Sunday and they had Spirograph in the section about old toys! Now that REALLY makes me feel old!!

When you come and visit in Canada, you can have the barn, or the basement or the loft. Hope you do visit - what fun. It's not that big btw, it's quite cosy. X
