Weekend report

Well, let's see how this weekend went:

1. Do something for my hubby
He scored a lovely sleep-in on Sunday morning (until 9:30) but in return gave me an afternoon nap!
2. Something for each of the kids
I did not plan any special activities, but I made them crumpets (what you guys call pancakes) for breakfast on Saturday morning - I think Little man C ate about 12 small ones! They all loved it.
3. Something for the puppies and 4. Something for someone outside of my direct family that shares my home
We took our friend Roland and his dogs Lisa and Nero for our favorite Sunday koppie walk - they have never been up there and loved it. The dogs got along well after an initial hitch and this might just become a more regular event. The puppies also got a special Valentines day dinner with yummy food.

5. Something for the house
Not to slip again like last weekend I cleaned my kitchen counter from clutter and tidied and packed The Boys' toys - making them love the same toys once again.

6. And something for myself.
I had a lovely one and a half hour outride on Saturday afternoon - Maluti and I made such a great connection - we had a great ride. I was so stiff on Sunday that climbing the koppie was tough, and with 10kg on your back, gosh! I just kept on telling myself - good load bearing exercise girl!

So what did you do for yourself this weekend?


  1. Hi there! Wow..I like this post!! I think I'm going to have to do it!!!

  2. What a great weekend! I think I might start calling them crumpets instead of pancakes, sounds more sophisticated!!!! :)

  3. Sounds like a great weekend. I workout every morning. That is what I do for myself. On the weekends, I like to add a bubble bath to the mix. As queen of the house, I deserve it:-)

  4. we had pancakes this weekend too...and they were delish! you have a fab little fam there! very cute!

  5. It sounds like you had a fabulous time! I caught up on blog work!

  6. Right now it's all about me. Wish it wasn't. Makes me feel....looking for the word...selfish, maybe. Anyway, soon I will be allowed to do all the things I want to do and not have to hear, "you need to be careful, you are over doing it, please, just go rest."

    Your weekend sounds lovely.

  7. I don't think I did anything for myself this past weekend. It sounds like you had a great weekend!

  8. i love that you are doing this, i know i said it last week, but i really need to borrow this idea! we had pancakes this weekend too + the little ones loved them!

  9. Cleaned my house to bring myself peace of mind. Attended church and thoroughly enjoyed the sermon. It's been in my heart ever since.

  10. Hmmmm...don't think I did much for myself this weekend but we did take the kids to the Children's museum one day and I let hubby nap with the baby one afternoon. :-)

  11. I got my brows waxed...does that count???
