Yes, we have some sun today!
We had sun yesterday too, but it turned into a monsoon when I headed for home. I squelched nicely as I can in the door, dripping water everywhere....
The weekend was very good - Mrs RC's birthday was great. Number One Son was home from Uni for the weelend, and out daughter baked a wonderful coffee and walnut cake (Mrs RC's favourite).
OK, when I say it was wonderful, it LOOKED wonderful and everyone said it tasted amazing, but as I do not like coffee I gave it a miss. Instead I helped demolish a raspberry pavlova that Number One Son made.
Dinner was a home made Mexicanish mashup - slow roasted chickens, beef, ribs, wraps, salad, sauces, nachos, etc. Splendid stuff!
We had intended to go out on the Sunday, but Frou Frou had been on the receiving end of too many scraps (she is a chicken junky) and needed constant access to the garden for most of the day. Still, we had a nice day, slobbing around chatting and eating. In place of dinner out I managed to cobble together a rather good lasagne with home made pasta and fresh baked bread rolls. Not quite the feast we had on Saturday, but still good.
And then it was Monday, and Number One Son headed home for a few more weeks, when he is returning for his own birthday and Mothers Day, which falls on the same weekend.
Life is very good right now.
Except for the rain, but you can't have everything can you?
OK, I guess that people who get to holiday in Florida (you know who you are...) might have everything, for a while at least ;-)
