Me on Monday

The sun is shining, the temperature is a little warmer and even though the daffodils in the garden aren't in bloom yet, the ones you can buy in the shops are - so here is Me on Monday, feeling like Spring may possibly be just around the corner.

It was nice to sleep in a proper bed last night.  My son in law was away this weekend on a stag 'do' and I offered to stay over at Rachel's because being up a lot during the night with a little baby can be lonely.  However, they have no spare bed so I slept on the sofa.  It's a large sofa and I'm a small person so it wasn't too uncomfortable but it was really good to be back sleeping on a mattress.

I have to share this photo that I took just after we had finished carving the roast lamb for lunch yesterday - my little sous chef Coco, captured licking her lips in anticipation of being given the bone to chew on!

So, what does the week hold in store?  Well of course it is Valentine's Day this week and whilst we both enjoy cooking, every now and again it is a nice treat to just get something ready made to put in the oven to cook while we enjoy a pre dinner glass of something chilled.  Marks and Spencer are doing their Dine In offer for dinner for two.  You get starters, main course, side dish, dessert, bottle of wine and box of chocolates for £20 which is clearly too good an offer to turn down (we'd never get a meal in a restaurant for £10 a head!) so I will be going into town as soon as I've finished this to check it out.

Other things on my 'to do' list include hand sewing the binding on the quilt and we end the week with a surprise meal out for our friends who are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary.  Meanwhile, I need to get out in that sunshine before the weather turns back to winter!  Have a good week!

Oh daffodils ... I cannot wait for spring. I really must learn how to do (properly) a roast of lamb, Mr Man so enjoys when we go out, maybe Coco can make some recommendations to me. Today everyone is out stocking up - our forecast for Tuesday is snow, ice pellets, freezing rain (again) & the possibility of up to 40cm of snow! Hope your Valentine's dinner is lovely.

Daffodils seem so far away right now. I woke up to snow on the ground this morning (it's still snowing now but ever so lightly). No big plans here for the week. Enjoy yours! :)

That's a lovely selfie of you with the daffodils! Cheeky Coco - great capture!

How nice to see both you and Coco looking full of the joys of nearly-Spring! Your week ahead has lots of nice things in it, so I hope you have a lovely, lovely time.

Sounds like a nice week! I love your picture in the mirror. I'm going to have to try that. That restaurant sounds amazing! The price certainly is right! said...

If I remember correctly, you had forgotten to pick up daffodils earlier in the month! I see they were remembered on a recent jaunt out. How lovely they are. We had volunteer daffodils all over an area of my childhood backyard. Don't think they would grow in El Paso.

Hope you enjoy your dinner out tonight. Please take pictures.

Kind of you to help Rachel with the babies. I am sure it was a delight to be with the grands. I am missing mine terribly.

Coco is adorable. Great capture in that photo. Hope his dreams of a bone were made true.

I hope you had a wonderful time out for dinner.
