Monday, Monday ...

Hello Fellow Bloggers !!

Just a short post to let you know that I am still here, and I survived another weekend. I hope you all did, too.

My weekend was fairly quiet, I guess. I spent Saturday typing (how unusual), doing a bit of housework, and preparing for dinner guests on Saturday night. We had a lovely evening with a couple of friends, just catching up. We haven't seen them for quite some time, so it was really nice just chatting. My meal turned out pretty yummy, too. I made a pasta sauce of cream, lots of mushrooms, bacon, spring onions, peas, parsley, seasoning ... mmmmmm, tasty. We had it with flat noodles - fettucini. We also had herb bread, and garlic bread. And I made a non-bake cheesecake for afterward.

On Sunday we all had a bit of a lie-in, then I continued with my typing (which I have now finished ... yay, I am free for awhile !!). I watched TV in the evening, whilst Hubby did an extra shift at work., falling asleep on the couch around 11.30ish (which is fairly normal for me these days !!), but awoke just as the Australia V Brazil soccer match started at 2am. I watched this until it was over, then went to bed. Shame the Aussies lost, but I felt it was a great game ... they played pretty well, I think. Now all we need is at least a draw with Croatia in a few days to make it into Round 2. Hopefully they make it.

My plan for today is to write this post, catch up on all your blogs, and then do who-knows-what. It is school holidays for the next 2 weeks, so our days will be slow starters, and no planners. We will do whatever takes our fancy at the time. Should be wonderful having 2 weeks of no structure. Unfortunately Hubby doesn't have holidays, but he has a couple of days off here and there, so we should be able to do stuff together.

Today is a gorgeous, sunny Winter's day. I hope the beautiful weather continues throughout much of the holidays ... my Chicky loves to play outside with all her friends, so the good weather makes for good play (also, not too many kids inside, to trash my house !!).

Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and that the upcoming week will be a great one for you all.

Take care,

Hi Meow, are you awake? thanks for the wake up call, 4 AM and the Socceroo's losing... not a good combination.
Your morning certainly had it's complications, could have been worse I guess, could have been a playfull hubby at 6.30AM,

Your pasta sauce sounds like carbonara. Yum.

Meow said...

Deb ... nice to see you. I guess Blogger has been naughty again. Hope you are well, too.

Moonlight ... thanks for dropping by. I popped over to your blog ... it is very nice ... I'll be back.

Peter ... I am awake, for sure ... I have a backyard full of noisy kids (oh, where are those headache tablets !?!?!). Bad luck about the Aussies, but they played well. A playful hubby at 6.30am would have been told what-for !!

Have a great day, take care, Meow

Meow said...

Granny ... Yeah, I guess it is a carbonara ... I didn't want to call it that in case it wasn't authentic. It sure was yummy, though !!
Take care, Meow
