This week I'm Glad for...

1. Not being born Royal or falling in love with someone who is.

 I'm by no means a private person but even I would be terrified of a Royal Wedding.

2. Roast Lamb Dinners.

They are so easy to cook, taste divine and everyone in the house eats them.
We had two over the Easter Long Weekend.  I cooked one and Mum cooked one on Easter Sunday.

3. Easter long weekend recovery days.

Man I needed them!

3 days at home with the Munchkin has recharged my batteries post the long weekend spent at home.

We normally go away.  We should have gone away.  Having the Workaholic home for 5 whole days threw the entire house into chaos and led to some rather heated moments.

Spending the end of the week with the Munchkin while the Little Man was at Pre-school has realigned the universe, well my universe.

  1. I'm watching the Royals as I type - omg, the pressure! Plus it just doesn't feel intimate or personal or unique to them. I think that's a bit sad, really! x

  2. Maxabella - AGREE! You just captured it in that comment.

  3. Gotta love a roast lamb at Easter. I reckon its a special time to just dag around the house and not do the going away thing now. And yes defintely glad not a princess.

  4. I am with you on the whole royal wedding thing. I'd hate to be in the centre of this much attention!

  5. i agree with the wedding stuff but then why could i not tear my eyes away!? i could never handle it myself and I was staring at her wondering how on earth she was remaining so composed!

    Gill xo

  6. We had a pork roast on Easter Sunday (I usually go the lamb option - but decided to try something different) Grateful that it turned out and I even got it to crackle:)
    We have a long weekend here this year too and also glad that I am not a royal - the pressure.

  7. I agree with you on both count there.

    I just love love love roast lamb!

  8. Herding cats, Kylie, dieux, I am attempting a roast pork this evening. I can never get the crackling right though. I ADORE a roast. Easy and Nom-nom-nom's all round!

  9. Gill and Muminsearch, I almost bought the Womens weekly at the supermarket today, which I never do. She was a beautiful bride and who isn't a sucker for a love story??


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read them all and try very hard to reply.
