Me On Monday

It was a weekend of food and flowers. A let's meet up with Little E for a Saturday night pizza weekend.

Beard note: yes, we have two in the family now

A let's take Granny some Sunday dinner weekend. Which also turned into a "I've got lots of plants for you to pot up for me" weekend. And then a "Quick the rain's on, inside without any photos" weekend.

So it was a pizza and pasta guzzling, too full for icecream, who let him drink all that coke now we need to take him to the bathrooms again weekend. And a roast gammon and crispy potatoes, ooh let's finish up with a malteser traybake weekend. But the best meal of all? I suspect it was the one we spotted on Facebook, with a boy and his beard and his dinner jacket and his bow tie. Nice work if you can get it, as they say.

Me? I'm planning a light and healthy stirfry for dinner tonight. I've been out to the wool shop for supplies (for my cowboy crochet blanket, not my stirfry). This is what happens when you try to take a picture of yourself looking in the wool shop window, and someone comes along and stands behind you, and doesn't move, and you try to pretend you are actually on the phone and not taking strange selfies...



Last week Eileen T, Ladkyis, Deb, Ruth, Helena, Jane, Alison, Karmacraft, Krafty Karen and Starnitesky all gave us a Monday wave. Go on, give 'em a wave back! And have a great week!

I think I'd like to eat pasta and/or pizza with Little E ...

Eileen T said...

A fun sort of almost selfie! So what colour wool did you buy?

It makes for an interesting selfie though....following an interesting weekend.

I'm thinking it would be fun to see what kind of a selfie Little E would have come up with!
I'm pleased I'm not the only one too self conscious to take pictures of myself out in public. An interesting shot!

Louise said...

haha at the selfie... you made me lol ..that'd be something i'd do. They were probably trying to photo bomb your selfie!!

Beards are hugely fashionable now!

Karen said...

Sounds like some very good food this weekend, and the selfie gave me a good chuckle!

Lizzy Hill said...

LOL re the selfie! Sooo been there! The young 'uns wouldn't even batt an eyelid. They'd probably tell said codger to 'move on'!!!! What the heck is a malteser traybake???????

Alison said...

So glad it's not just me with the selfies! Xx

Susanne said...

I agree with Deb, would be fun to see a Little E selfie - with an explanation that only Little E could concoct. Sounds like you were had a grand weekend.

Mel said...

Haha it is embarrassing to get caught in the act of taking selfies!

KraftyKaren said...

Sounds like you have had a great weekend. Shame you couldn't get the photograph that you wanted. Malteaser traybake sounds great - do you have the recipe? I'm waving back at you again this week, albeit at a late hour!!

Julie Kirk said...

That's a perfect start for a 'Bad Portraits 2015' collection. That's exactly the kind of thing that happens to me!

Not wishing to be outdone we're a 2 beard family too [Dad and James]. Although only one of those has needed to use my hair straighteners to de-kink theirs...don't ask.

Happy blanket-making. :-)

A fun, family weekend. Also the best kind. I laughed at your selfie too! I've often ended up with funny half shots of all sorts of things, because somebody has walked by at a crucial moment.

Sian said...

I bought Lipstick Red Stylecraft Special DK.

And I'm looking for a malteser bun recipe

Cheri said...

ah, carb overload! Always happens when out with family - my weekend was similar and I'm still paying for it! And I think it is funny that our generation is so self-conscious about selfies, but my daughters think NOTHING of it!

Barbara Eads said...

I always learn something new with your posts. I had to look up a couple things, but I learned a "gammon" was ham and a maltese tray bake is some sort of dessert. Unusual names makes those dishes all the more enticing to me!

Gail said...

LOL, I know exactly what you mean about people being around when you're taking photos like that. I'm alway so self conscious about it. :) I had a Monday post but no picture to go along with it. Maybe I can get one later today or early tomorrow. I need to get back in the swing of things. :)

Miriam said...

Oh I love the selfie and know exactly where you are coming from. We are a two beard family too.

Melissa said...

That selfie totally made me laugh as I wave back from a wet and gray Texas, procrastinating on the housework I need to do today before the start of two spring break trips!

Sandra said...

It's a selfie that's bought a smile to my face for sure

alexa said...

What a great almost-selfie. We need to invent a name for those, I think! It sounds like a happy, enjoyable, family time ...

Jennifer Shaw said...

Sounds like some good eating! Yay to a visit to the yarn shop!

Beverly said...

Love the famil weekend and so glad I am not the only person that is so self conscious that I pretend I am on the phone ;)

Jo said...

That sounds like a lovely weekend full of food. The story behind the selfie made me laugh :)
