the week gone by...

Another week gone by so fast! Really, where did the time go? The weekend seemed to disappear in a nano second, but even though it was busy, it was a lot of fun. I just didn't get to unwind like I usually do though. We went out for a lovely lunch to meet some visiting cousins and E had a whale of a time. Then on saturday we entertained at home, an old college friend of DH that I was meeting for the first time. A lovely evening going down memory lane!
E's star pillow being sunned, after she had a rough night. Luckily this one has a removable cover and the pillow is machine washable, but her regular pillow isn't. So I opened up the stiches, washed the wool and dried it in the sun.
All set to browse the new Ikea catalog along with a soothing cup of green tea. With the changing season, the throat has been acting up, so taking every opportunity to sit and have a cup of tea.
Morning walk to her school! The weather here in Dubai is now lovely in the mornings, very refreshing.
Some banana bread with oatmeal, which I really liked for it's added texture. And then a dollop of whipped cream, left over from the chocolate cream pie I took for lunch out. Slightly over browned in my oven that doesn't have a thermometer.
