The week that was…week 22: birthdays and simple pleasures

2013-05-27 12.27.21It is lovely to have a week with enough quiet time to catch up for lunch with James. Soup!

2013-05-28 22.21.02Another full moon week. And being the last week of autumn, it was also good to admire the final leaves.

2013-05-30 09.45.102013-05-31 15.25.14For James’ birthday we out for a lovely family dinner at the Elk & Pea. Zachary was particularly pleased about the unique dessert he was given when the things he wanted had run out.

Because life and work has been so completely relentless recently, I had Friday off to do very little. It did mean James and I got to pick the boys up together and walk them home.

2013-05-31 15.07.272013-05-31 15.09.37Jude is currently obsessed with Minecraft (again). Playing Minecraft, constructing maps, watching YouTube videos about Minecraft. We still have the no-Minecraft-talk-at-the-dinner-table rule.

2013-06-01 11.46.24Sebastian’s obsessions are sport (particularly hockey) and cooking. Here he is soaking after his footy game, and baking up some cakes to take out with us.

2013-06-01 12.30.34 2013-06-01 17.04.09We had a movie night at Dave and Caroline’s – after watching Babette’s Feast and eating nearly as much food, we dramatically switched moods to Monty Python and the Holy Grail for the second act. The boys were not excommunicated because they found their first viewing very funny. On my 53rd(ish) I still found it hilarious.

2013-06-02 21.27.07…and Zachary lost a tooth.
