weekend highs

The biggest high of the weekend was the temperature on Sunday - 25°C (77°F) on 3rd October!  Yay.  Stretching out that summer feeling one last time maybe.  We had all the doors and windows open, lunch in the garden and a bike ride.

And we visited our local icecream parlour (on its last open day until spring 2011).  Luca played football with a group of school friends, with his shirt off.  This is October in NL - it can't last surely?

Huzz and I enjoyed watching, again, Crazy Heart with Jeff Bridges.  Fab film.  Love the music.  Mr Bridges was the perfect actor for the role. If you haven't seen it - you should.

I picked up a couple of Sinterklass, birthday (Luca) or Christmas pressies in a great sale on Saturday.  Yes, I know its a bit early, but I couldn't resist.  With 3 big celebrations within 3 weeks (2 on the same day) I like to start hoarding early.

And a bit of domestic stuff (clearing out cupboards, cleaning the fridge, vacuuming the car and gardening too) it was all quite satisfying.

And, how was your weekend?  Hope you had a good one.


  1. Good idea on starting "hoarding" presents early. I set that goal each year, and then it's December 20 and I haven't even started. Good job, Victoria!
    Same weather here in my areas (the Rockies, US). Holding on to summer for as long as I can :-)

  2. We've been curious about this film. Is it super sad? I can't do sad films. Not sure why... I'm sure I could use therapy about this. ;)

  3. glad you made to to UK in the end:) it must have been so stressful...great boots, great film link...thank you:)

  4. I've been trying to get the hubs to rent that flick!

  5. Just lost my comment, error 505:(
    I wrote something about being all for gentle autumn and winter seasons!

  6. We sat outside too. It was glorious! Even sneaked a glass of wine.

  7. I haven't seen Crazy Heart yet - thanks for reminding me that it's on my list. I have started Christmas shopping. I can't help myself. I just hate going to the shops in December...

  8. I also loved Crazy Heart! Jeff Bridges is so amazing, really a great movie!

  9. OOh - I NEED to see this. It's been on my list for a while. I hadn't seen this trailer. Now I'm even more excited.


Thanks for stopping by.
