A Slow Cosy Weekend

It's been a slow, wet, quiet weekend here.  Even with some extra people around the house.  In fact, I would even go so far as to say I'm a bit bored between meals! 

We had French Toast this morning, Miss10yo visitor was oh so very excited when she learned of the treat ahead.  Easy to please!  Dh came home with a roasted chook on Thursday, so we had toasted chicken & cheese sandwiches for lunch.  An ordeal when your sandwich toaster does two at a time!  Nevertheless, there were lots of happy people quite willing to take turns at having theirs on their plate.

The 14yo's were as bored as I so they made butterfly cakes, a little like the ones in the picture above.  Plain cream and a dot of jam and topped with an uncut lid were more our style.  The 10yo's have been Playstationing....and the 13yo has had the joy of Daddy's iPhone.  You know.  Because you have to have special privileges when everyone else has something to do.

And it has rained.  My it's been heavy.  In a little bit I'll put some dough on for homemade pizzas for dinner.  And we'll stay indoors, all nice and cosy, and just watch the weather roll by.
