the weekend that was *

the weekend that was *
reading 3191 on the sofa with a cosy blanket and a cup of tea

it feels like my weekend truly began when we arrived home on saturday afternoon, after staying with a friend friday night because we'd missed the last ferry home due flight delays returning from the uk

everything seemed more relaxed and the pace of my life slowed down a little

you’ll often find me staying in bed late, reading and drinking coffee until i’m so hungry i have to get up & have something to eat

or thinking about some new project – like making sausages, or picking the rosehips i saw down the road and turning them into jelly

and i like to eat something a little different from my weekday smoothies for breakfast – like poached eggs the heston way, or crispy bacon & avocado sandwiches

the soundtrack to my weekend is the birds singing in the trees outside and the rush of air past their wings as they chase each other around the garden

i’d rather be reading than  doing housework

and this weekend, i’ll be watching nat cheshire’s ‘do not rest’ talk from Semi-Permanent Auckland 2014 on vimeo

and if i could, i would teleport my friends from the uk on a regular basis so there wasn’t such a long time between ‘see you next time’s
