A Very Busy Weekend

Wow this weekend has been so busy, but so much fun.  I had the day off work on Friday so headed down to Paul's to spend some time with him.  Traffic, accidents and roadwork meant that the trip took over 3 hours instead of just under two and then when I got there I found out his work schedule had changed and he had to be up at 5:00 the next morning!  Not to worry, I am go with the flow kind of gal and as he was taking a coach load of passengers to London I said I'd drive home and meet him there.
I met him at Embankment at lunchtime and the weather was glorious.  We had a quick coffee and a wander around Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square before heading back to Embankment and boarding a stationary boat for a late lunch.
 With amazing views:

After lunch we headed over to South Bank to have a look at the beach hut display.
Found this fantastic old camera:
And an amazing ice-cream van:
I couldn't resist taking a picture of this for Maddie, because she hates birds :)
I really had such a great day.

This morning was housework day, which is incredibly boring so I found a bit of time to make these:
I told Maddie the other day that I was going to look for a recipe for peanut butter cookies, I couldn't believe my luck when my friend Fiona posted a recipe for them on her blog! They are so easy to make and very, very tasty.

Finally I managed the Weekly Challenge over on UKScrappers.  We had to use punches, a 4x6 photo and a bit of history:
After being the only girl amongst lots of male cousins Maddie was so excited when Elsie came along.
I used plenty of my borders punches.
And made some flowers.

Well done if you got to the end of this epic post.

Hope you've had a great weekend.
