Today so far...

Today I woke up wishing it were still the weekend, we were given lots of lovely cards about love from our girlies, I scrambled around for bits of underwear and uniform, I offended the eldest with a comment about her social life, I let the youngest wear shoes that are waaaaaaaay too big for her, I reminded the middle to remove her potions from the freezer to take to school,

I went for a walk with my boy, we did a pilates class and then met his parents for an early lunch in a court yard, I had a coffee and a lentil summer salad mmmm, I came home, I tidied up a bit and put some washing on, I read some emails, I gathered up the dress for a little girl to wear to a wedding and then I changed my mind and decided it wasn't quite right so I cut out some fabric and made another one, I sewed one of Wendy's divine little pockets on for treasure collecting,

I took a couple of photos of the dress and then came inside and decided I like the other one after all, I think I'll send her both and she can decide.

Soon the girls will be home, I'll bring the washing in and make lentil bolognese for dinner, then its craft night, a drink, a spot of knitting and a gossip and hopefully not too late a night.


What are you up to?

I hope your Monday is a Funday. XX


  1. The dress is so sweet, enjoy your craft night!

  2. It sounds like you had a lovely day. The weather has been gorgeous here. I havent done much at all, read emails and did some ironing whilst Paul made vegetable soup!

  3. I love the sound of your day, except for getting the littlies ready for school. That is not always fun. Love pilates and that dress is, as per your usual standard....gorgeous!

  4. Not so funday for me. Monday's are my 'get every boring domestic job done' so that I have the rest of the week to do the real fun stuff.

    Loving the sound of lentil bolognese, any recipe recommendation?


  5. As you know, my sewjo has returned so I am itching to cut out and sew, sew, sew. My knitting is sulking. Your dresses are lovely. Has your knitting got its nose out of joint too? And I am trying to catch up on my blog reading and referred 3 siblings who have chosen this week/month/year to be completely disagreeable with each other (I am hoping it is "week" rather than "year"...)

  6. I was also going to ask for the lentil bolognese recipe. :)

  7. i LOVE your blog. happy valentines day sweet Kate x and i love your new dress x and i wish i could come to craft night with you and have a gossip and maybe more than one drink x

  8. ...yes can I hop in the queue for the lentil bolognese recipe?? Sounds totally delish!! You have had a wonderful day by the sounds of things! TK xx

  9. Ahhh craft night I cant find one of those near me and I miss them. Enjoy yourself. I love the dresses both are really lovely.

  10. Both dresses are great - I wonder which she'll choose?
    I'm on hold on the phone after having a car run into the back of mine... oh well, at least the driver was lovely and kind and apologetic!
    YUM - lentil bolognese!

  11. lucky girl, both dresses looking great! I wish it was weekend too.. =)

  12. sounds like a perfect day Kate! I can't wait to get sewing again! xo Rach

  14. Lentil bolognese sounds yummy, you will have to do a post seems popular :-) Dresses are divine and I love that little pocket you added!

  15. Happy valentine's day :-)
    your lentil bolog sounds really the recipe on your blog somewhere? Or can you point me in the right direction?
    And those dresses are gorgeous!!

  16. Whew...busy, busy..I just woke up here in my part of the is almost 8:00 am and I am on winter break, as I'm a school teacher..I'm be busy soon, as the Hubs and I have plans for the day..

  17. Ah, yet another lovely creation! I am so inspired by your sweet dresses and amazed at your collection of vintage fabrics!
    I have been sewing up a storm these days, and enjoying it so much.
    Have a wonderful craft night!

  18. Well, I rode my bike to work in the cool of the morning, and then I worked and worked and worked and then I had lunch with a friend and had a lovely sandwich with turkey and brie on it, and then I got an upset tummy from the apricots I'd eaten earlier so I ended up not riding home again and got a lift instead. Then I had a very small dinner and went to a friend's place for craft night, where we drank coffee and ate mint slices and lots of cheese and laughed a lot and talked about iphone apps and then I cam home and fell into bed at midnight.

    This morning I checked on my bike in the lockup downstairs, and someone with an even prettier bike than mine has parked right next to me. I'm going to have to take a photo before I ride home this afternoon.

    Your Monday actually sounds far more interesting that mine!

  19. Sounds like a lovely Monday! And the dresses are so cool.
    We had lunch in our local and very yummy cafe, made some quick valentine cards, attempted some unsuccessful sewing, took a walk at dusk and had miso soup for dinner.

  20. Busy, check, gorgeous dress, check, fitness, check, healthy yummy food, check, craft, check. I think youve got it pretty well covered :) I love busy days like this, feels like you have achieved so much.

  21. Hah! Funny that. I was thinking of sending you some more just the other day and wondered if you have used any yet!

    Beautiful dress as always Kate. Maybe she can do what us big girls do and wear one to the wedding and one to the reception? x

  22. The dress- so divine! I love it..
    My Monday- dealing with real estate agents - trying to buy a house ( for the first time ever , and attempting to look like i know what i am doing!)

  23. I love both of those dresses! And your monday sounds just about perfect. It reminds me that I have to host another crafternoon soon, if only more of my friends crafted

  26. That sounds like a day from my dreams! Dresses are lovely - so pretty and unique. K

  28. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    However think of if you added some great graphics or
    video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and
    clips, this blog could definitely be one of the best in
    its field. Wonderful blog!
