A Friday of Fun

I had the bestest day today!
After playing netball last night and taking a tumble (why do I play again?) - grazing my right knee rather nicely, I woke up in a bit of a funk this morning. 5.30am is just not my best look!

Anyway, I had lots to do...
Tidy the house a little, bake a sponge cake, make a shopping list, do dishes, go to the supermarket, decorate sponge with lashings of whipped cream and strawberries, make a stuffed cob loaf, take a shower and prepare a scrumptious antipasto platter. All before 10.30. Whew!

At 11 o'clock my dear friends Tracie, Leah and Kim arrived for a day filled with food, fun and laughter.

Yes, we put the world to rights, decided on a night out next week, organised the details of our Christmas holiday, drank copious amounts of coffee and gorged ourselves on yummy food. What more could one want from a Friday?
The children played happily together all day, and we finally ended it at about 5 o'clock this afternoon.

With leftovers from lunch and sandwiches for dinner, all that remained for me was to wash up and relax with a lovely hot cup of tea in front of the fire with my copy of Romantic Homes magazine (which came in the post yesterday) - utter bliss :)

I am feeling all recharged now, so will say goodnight as I am off to make a batch of Castile soap - a wonderfully gentle soap made from olive oil, perfect for handmilling...

It certainly did sound like a very fun day with your friends...wish I lived closer:-) Isn't it amazing though how much we can accomplish in one day...and other days it seems we can't get anything done! lol

Sounds like a heavenly day you've had. I'm glad. We are in our Friday here and I need to see what I can accomplish in the few hours left. I could use a little feminine fellowship right now or maybe some success with my tatting would be nice. I'm trying to figure out a vintage pattern. The 1st and 2nd rounds go quite well and then the 3rd...has trashed the whole pretty thing--twice!!

Oh...I just love Romantic Homes magazine when I can find it...I guess I just need to go ahead and order a subscription.
The pictures in that mag are what I dream of if I were to ever have my wishes granted..
Glad you had a great time with your friends!!
