Slow Living Sunday: Sunshine & Serenity

sundayapril2nd

It’s a beautiful and sunny Sunday evening here in Bridport today. Alan and I had a nice long lie in followed by him making us cinnamon rolls! They were so good! It was his first time making them too and they turned out fantastic! We had to run some errands earlier so after having breakfast we went into town to get a few things and enjoy the sunshine. It is lovely to be out and taking all the signs of Spring in. I had a few things I wanted to do when we got home, making a nice loaf of bread being one of them!

Back in January we moved into our own place but we still have a few things over at Alan’s parents’ place so while I got busy making my Bara Soda Carawe (that’s Welsh for Caraway Soda Bread), Alan went to go get some of our books to add to our bookcase which had been sitting in the hallway not getting much use other than as a catch-all of sorts. We cleared it out last weekend and now it is finally starting to look like a proper bookcase and soon I will have the hallway clear of all the excess clutter.

So, today has really been more about slow living, trying to just take at least a day to enjoy life without all the major distractions from the everyday. Alan made a lovely chili con carne while I baked and we had a late lunch followed by a nice nap (sunshine and a hearty meal will do that to you). Now I am up, writing to you all after having finished a few designs and test prints to upload some new stuff to the Etsy shop and Alan is making scones for supper! Couple that with a gorgeous evening of sunshine and a leisurely viewing of Vera on ITV in about 40 minutes and we are ready to end this relaxing day to start a new and vibrant week ahead. How was your Sunday?

Well, I am off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday evening with my hubby! More news to come tomorrow! Have a lovely week and stay positive!

Hello again! It’s been a while…

Well, after a rather long hiatus from blogging, partially because I wasn’t feeling much like writing and partly because I had forgotten my login details, I am back with you all again. Hello from Bridport! It was a lovely start to April today, lots of sunshine despite some looming clouds so Alan and I headed off on a walk to West Bay to have a nice beach day.

Despite some brooding storm clouds towards town, the Bay stayed dry while we were there and the walk home was lovely. Alan even found a human size hamster wheel in one of the fields. *wink*

Hopefully we will be back blogging more regularly here though we can’t promise to do so daily. I for one have a lot more to share with you all but for now I bid you a good weekend and a good night!
