weekend life...















So that was the weekend...
Gorgeous autumnal weather, made for long walks in the woods, great breakfasts and gardening with grandparents.
Autumn on days like these are my absolute favourite... soaring blue skies, crisp clean air.. each day a perfect gift and one we cannot waste.
Saturday we wandered through the woods.  We took a packed lunch of delicious bread and cheese, crisp local apples and our little burner to brew coffee.  Shame we forgot to pack the cups!  Coffee drank straight from the pot it was then.
For breakfast this morning I made 'Oeuf en Cocotte' or Baked eggs in crusty bread - a recipe I saw in the lastest issue of The Simple Things Magazine.  Super easy and super delicious too.
After our hearty breakfast we spent the day at my parents helping them to clear their front garden ready for a new design.
Good simple pleasures... 
How was your weekend?

  7. its so cool having little men, my two little men 3 and 5 also enjoy a good forage and dig and nothing makes them happier than finding a good stick :) suits me much better than the idea of brushing a barbies hair ...

  8. Lovely pictures! Coffee drunk straight from the pot can sometimes be the best coffee.
    We had every intention to go for a walk in the forest but nothing came of it so hopefully next weekend!

  14. Sounds perfect. I will have to remember to forget to coffee cups and drink straight from Mocha maker. I once forgot the sandwiches and we had to eat cake! Kids still recall it some years later! Happy times.
