Hooray for the weekend. We are being spoilt with glorious sunshine and blue skies, a chill in the air and leaves turning the most amazing colours, and the forecast is that way for the next week. Love it.
The Huzz and I sneaked a midweek morning date in this week. First breakfast at an old favourite cafe / bar and then two hours wandering the Portland Japanese Garden for a little photography. The colours are amazing in the Fall and if you get an early start, the mist is gradually lifting as the sun beams through the leaves. Stunning. Lucky us. We need to do these dates more often.

This Saturday evening the Huzz and I will dining out with friends at the Portland restaurant 'Beast'. It should be a meal to remember - 6 courses with accompanying wines at each course! Long table with other diners we've not met and and 2.5 hour feast! I'll report back....
We seem to be doing pretty well and checking stuff off the 'To Do' list lately. The 'Done' list is looking longer than the 'To Do' which is always nice and makes my shoulders feel a little lighter.
After last weekend's busyness, I asked myself "What happened to those lazy Sundays with lie-ins, walks, reading the bumper Sunday newspapers on the sofa and really relaxing? Do you remember those? Hopefully there are a few on the horizon with the winter months ahead.
Anyhow, this Sunday a potential drive over to the coast has been discussed, and that could suit me perfectly. Gotta make the most of the best Fall weather and a walk on the beach, dog and kiddos burning off some energy outdoors. It will be just the ticket after that 6 course dinner on Saturday!
