That sounds like a wonderful way to spend a kid-free afternoon & evening! Mmmmm, mussels ...

What a fabulous layout! I love all the different colours and patterns, and the stitching looks great!

That sounds like the best kind of way to relax! Your spread looks so elegant - I thought for a second you had gone to some posh place! LOL


Good on you Trina for having a bit of 'us' time - I bet you feel so much more refreshed and relaxed for it. And when you are at home like that, no having to deal with traffic and parking...getting dressed up etc etc - so much more relaxing!


I LOVE your platters of yummy treats! Such a nice way to relax and enjoy a peaceful afternoon :) It's definitely weird not having the kids around when you are so used to it but your 'us' time is important to... hope you have a great day :)


oh yum oh YUM! What a beautiful gift of free time.

Love the LO..
I have printed off your sketch collection with the intention of using them this week!


Oh you lucky things having some us/me time! I love how you made it really special with the yummy food presented so beautifully!.
It does feel weird not having the kids around, I always feel as though I have lost a limb when they are away. But oh SO important to have quality time together. Enjoy your part of the day on your own too.
Love the layout. I haven't got my kit yet but after seeing your layout I can't wait for it to arrive and peruse its beautifulness.


Oh yum, you're making me hungry! Can you bring one round? LOL.
Gorgeous LO, love the colours!

Looks so lovely! It's a rare event here too with no family in Auckland, but the 1 weekend we've been away, I missed the kids dreadfully. You can't win!

Yummo, my kind of food. It's hard when you miss the kids but love the time together alone. Doesn't happen often in our house.
