Started with a little stitching. I'm taking part in The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery Story Time Sampler & I'm already behind! Ha ha!! Basically for those who don't know, every month the Pumpkins release a pattern over the space of a year, & at the end of the year, you've created a beautiful Kawaii style sampler. The first month was Alice in Wonderland themed, that I really need to finish, so I can start on this months theme of the Secret Garden.
As a family, we have decided that Sundays are now technology free days. Too much of our time is spent on iPhones, iPads, DS's, Kindles, etc, we need one day where the urge to do this is taken away. The girls weren't overly thrilled about this decision to begin with but by the end of the day, they actually agreed that this should be something we continue & they had fun without technology!
It was a freezing day, so we wrapped up warm & went for a short walk in a nearby woods.

The girls had lots of fun going exploring off whilst myself & Hubby stuck to the paths (I was so cold & my joints were really sore & wobbly, I really wanted to explore with them but I was sensible & took it easy!)

We then returned home for lunch & I felt so tired & sore that I went back to bed for a while, whilst Hubby taught Miss K to play Othello. I'm proud to say that after two games, she beat her Dad!!

I spent some time adding two more rows to my Cottage Ripple, I'm so in love with it, I cannot wait to finish it!

We cooked dinner together (which I forgot to take a photo off as I was too hungry!) & we tried The Pioneer Womans Crash Hot Potatoes which got a massive thumbs up from 4 out of 5 of us!! That's a success in my books!

We finished off our technology free day by spending some time together drawing. This was my effort, it didn't turn out exactly how I planned it, so I'm going to try it again.
So that was my Sunday, the nicest Sunday we've had for a while.
How was yours?
