Weekend

Here's a quick flick through our weekend so far...

Saturday:

Fast-Momma was out at a business meeting in London for her company Lucky Sew & Sew so I took the kids out into town, we had a blast in the arcades on Logan's favourite "penny shooters" then went for lunch at an awesome pub called The Railway, they serve mostly vegan and vegetarian food so me and the kids thought we'd check it out 






We had Veggie burgers which turned out to be amazing! Logan told me they're made of vegetable meat, which seems pretty legit to me.

By the time we finished, went to a couple of shops for supplies and walked all the way home it was time to start dinner so me and the boy whipped up a stirfry whilst Aurora gave moral support



All boys should know how to cook and 3 years old is old enough to help out with plenty in the kitchen. After this photo my battery died so we'll jump on to Sunday now.

First up we mowed the grass, as you can see from this pic it was getting a bit like the Serengeti. 


After that me and Logan got our man on and put together a small raised bed, we're gonna use this one to plant some sunflowers and other fun stuff with the kids


All the hard work made us plenty hungry so it was time to scramble two dozen quail eggs for lunch


Sprinkled with some home grown chives and we were ready to rock! The kids LOVE scrambled quail eggs, goes down a treat

And of course what lunchtime would be complete without someone casually dressed as a power ranger?


Hope you have all made the most of the weekend, TTFN!

    1. We do try, sometimes there are tears and everything isn't always sunshine and butterflies, but equally sometimes are just absolute bliss. I always think that when you have happy kids you have all that you could ever ask for :)

  8. Here in North Georgia, we don't have any quail. They do raise them in South Georgia, but it's just for "shooters". You get these rich guys who go out in a field in a long line, then the "preserve" people let the quail out in they shoot them. Not sport, in my opinion.

    Never heard of anyone eating quail eggs but it looked pretty good in your photo. I have chickens but I think my dogs eat the eggs more than I do. Have about 50 and they are free range.

    Enjoyed your post, will be stopping back by for certain.

  9. Hi there, I found your blog through 5 on Friday and Sara. What a lovely and genuinely warming post. I also wanted to say that I come into Essex every so often as my MIL lives there and we are in Wales, I visited The Railway a couple of months back and was well impressed. http://allotment2kitchen.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/vegetarian-vegan-bohemian-pub-railway.html
