This weekend we took a deep breath - and enjoyed it!

It was wonderful to have a weekend without the looming of 3 tests and two orals ahead. It changed everything for me - I really did not know that it contributed so much to the anxiety I have (see previous post). So this weekend we let our hair down and relaxed. Although Mr L had hockey early Saturday morning and A had ballet course at the same time , it was as if we sighed a combined breath of happy.

In pictures we:

Spent Friday the afternoon at the school festival - A is a total adrenaline junkie.

The school had Bobby van Jaarsveld in concert - I am not  fan but he gave us a most enjoyable concert. He even sang some CCR! A delightful Friday night.

The clever moms at school imported Stikeez ( a different series) from China and sold it to a great profit for the school

We attended a baby welcoming party for a friend who is adopting a little girl. It was such a relaxed afternoon with the kids splashing in the pool
We had a lovely relaxed early Sunday lunch with my mom at a nursery - lots of space to play and wonderful food too.
Mince pancake - it was so tasty
We also just relaxed at home - made marie biscuit art
And planted some violas - each kid in their own pot.
 How was your weekend?


  1. Sounds divine!!!

    I know it's a good weekend around here when I get to cook or bake :)

    This past weekend I had big plans but all I got to was Konmari-ing the study. It felt GREAT. Not 100% done but about 90% is almost as good.

  2. Sounds lovely! We also had a great relaxing weekend, and visiting with family!

  3. Sounds like a relaxing weekend.
    We now have drama in our house because we can't find a Stikeez house anywhere

  4. Your relaxing weekend still sounds busy...but that is just me. Love to see your weekend in pics.

    1. I think it was the right kind of busy though

  5. Your weekend always sounds so full of good things!! xx

    1. Believe me the last few ones were full of academic stuff and way too much to do
