I have mentioned before how much i love staying at home. I welcome every opportunity not to have any reasons to go out. I have been pretty hectic in the last few months and it's so nice to be able to not have any plans these days. It enables me to recharge my batteries as well as have time to do what i enjoy. Being creative. It is my outlet and helps me regain balance.
So here's to the weekends of doing absolutely nothing but things that we enjoy! Like cooking. I don't know if you have noticed lately, i have been documenting some recipes. This is one of those things that i love to do to unwind. :)
This weekend, Hayden and I also made some Sausage Rolls! Don't worry, i haven't forgotten. I will post the recipe soon. But here's a little photo teaser....
I love how Hayden shows interest in food and cooking in general. He loves to help out. I have to reign him in at times as he can get a little bossy and starts telling me how things should be done. Like, excuse me... it's my recipe...!? You're just the Sous Chef. H E L L O...?!
He used to always tell us... ''No Pepper!''. [Yes, Chef!]
Now, he tells me... ''Can you make it spicy, Mummy? I like it spicy.''.
When we pick him up from Pre-school, the first thing he asks is.. ''What are we having for dinner?''. He always have 2 portions lunch in Pre-school. Like we never feed him at home. Seriously. I don't know where he puts all his food.
I also made one of my all time favourite, Guacamole which is before this post. Click here to go to it and try the recipe, maybe. :)
Oh, before i forget and also because i don't want to forget about today. Hayden gave me this little dandelion flower from the garden. Some of you will call this weeds but to me, it's the sweetest and most beautiful declaration of love from a 3.5 year old little boy. He has his ways to Mama's heart!
He came in the living room whilst i was having my coffee and said.. ''I got you something, Mummy. Look!''. Then when i said thank you, he said.. ''I love you so much, Mummy!''. He tells he loves me everyday. And it always gets me. Like a reset button. He has the most adorable way of telling me he loves me. He looks me in the eye and uses expressions. He gives me this little smile and a twinkle in his eyes. It makes me teary just to think how on earth i deserve such a sweet little boy with so much love and kindness [don't get me wrong, he can be a little shit at times]. I don't want him to grow up too soon but i hope when he does, he would be a gentleman with even more love and kindness to give.
Do small things with great love. Pretty much sums up my weekend.
I hope you all had a great one. Have a great week!
