This weekend began a little differently to the last…due to the fact that on Friday afternoon my mum and dad flew in from San Francisco! A fly in fly out visit lasting just over a week that would allow me to top up on mum hugs and renew life chat sessions with dad. I really don’t know how we get by each week without a visit to see them for a quick cuppa or bbq dinner, not forgetting the puppy cuddles that we used to have on tap but now only dream about. Our family reunions make our love so much stronger and although I miss them dearly I know in the future they’ll be back in our lives even more involved than ever. I have plans of renovating a caravan with dad’s help, having mum help serve and design my baked treats from said caravan (can’t wait for her to model my vintage apron collection!) and of course not forgetting the obligatory babysitting sessions they’ll be subjected to when I finally settle down and have babies. It’s weird talking about a time so far from now (and babies!) but it keeps me going when we are physically so far apart. We have spent some quality time this weekend just catching up, sharing my new (and old) dreams and how it will all bring us back together. Drinking cups of tea & enjoying sweet treats, indulging in pints of cider and eating at some of our favourite places in town. On Wednesday we meet up with family friends on the coast and pay a visit to a couple of my favourite oppies (at their request of course). This weekend has been a little quiet finds wise but I’m so topped up with family love I haven’t even wanted to venture out. I swear I can hear a strawberry & lime cider calling my name so I’ll love you and leave you and be back during the week with some recipes and perhaps some Wednesday finds. Hope your weekend has been just as lovely and you’ve been spending time with some of your favourites.
