This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

Ticking - off lots of little jobs around the house and in town. Mundane things like picking up a present for Andrew's 4 year old godson, getting a new watch battery and filling in some entry forms for this summer's steam rally season.

Pruning - an elder tree that's growing too tall and in the wrong place in our back garden.

Ordering - some new bedroom furniture from Ikea. Our house has four bedrooms; the bedroom we use is slightly small but has built in wardrobes, the one we want to use is an en-suite but has absolutely no furniture so we designed our own layout and matched the stuff from Ikea to fit. This doesn't actually mean we'll be living in our lovely new bedroom anytime soon though - what's more likely to happen is that we'll have a pile of boxed-up flatpack furniture stacked up in the bedroom for about 9 months!

Getting - a long overdue haircut. It doesn't seem dramatically different to what I usually have (what can I say, I'm not that adventurous when it comes to hair) but it's certainly a lot tidier and doesn't look quite as much like I've been dragged through the proverbial bush backwards.

Participating - in the lovely Jane's (from Is That You Darling) March Photo an Hour challenge.
Full round up to follow tomorrow :-)

Baking - some chocolate chip cookies courtesy of the one of the lovely gifts I was sent as part of the Thrifty Gift Swap last Christmas. I thought it seemed rather appropriate to cook 'bloggy biscuits' to celebrate the blog's first birthday!
