weekend snaps...

Budva (Madonna played here in 2008 but little Miss was only 18mths old and I one tired mama).
Strolled the promenade. Visited the teeny historic town. Took a retreat in the citadel's library - the refreshing coolness of stone and the magic of oh books and books.


Chomped kebabs wrapped in freshly made flat bread. Slurped gelato style ice cream in sweet waffle cones. Drank tea and latte while Miss 3 played. Oh, and I left the camera in the car....

I did remember to buy postcards for my postcard swap buddies.

Awake at 4am, I read a little more Thomas Hardy.
(tired) question: why do some birds sing at night?

Made some hazelnut spread.
Hazelnuts, cocoa powder, sweetener, nothing else. Delish.

On Summer-is-oh-so-here Sunday we skyped the in-laws in UK 
from the hotspot in town.

A stroll through a still quiet town centre.
yeah ok, one shot. now give me back my Canonbaby.

Finish with a cranberry tea by the seaside.

So how was your weekend?

p.s, if you do a weekend wrap-up type post of mostly photos, let me know and I'll add your link into this post! I might add a linky next time.

  5. Hi Monica, thanks for your lovely comment, I really appreciate it. That piece of wood is actually a vintage shoe shape (I think that's what it's called)that was used for making made-to-measure shoes.

  7. Fun weekend! Mine wasn't enywhere close to this. for one thing, the weather is cold and it is raining non-stop since Friday evening.

    I like the sounds of that hazelnut spread. And the recipe you have from a while back for coconut pancakes also sounds delish, I think I will try!

    I also like the sounds of this postcard swap group. Great idea! Do you do much travelling?

  12. welcome lovely people!

    Brandi, not sure if it's a little sad that the spread was almost the highlight for me. lol

  13. Mon, you have beautiful hair!
    am laughing at the caption 'now give me back my cannonbaby' :) sounds familiar!
