this weekend I was mainly...

Why does the weekend always zoom by so quickly?
I've had a lovely weekend. On saturday I did this:Have you ever wondered what 86,000 people looks like? Well it's kind of like this:


Wembley stadium is amazing and the foo fighters totally rocked (as you would expect). I'm not usually into rock, I'm more of an indie/alternative kinda girl, but I am partial to a bit of Foo's. I was sitting quite high up, but they had a revolving stage so we did get to see quite a lot - the top of the main stage was also surrounded by screens so if we couldn't see the stage we could watch the screens. The sound was immense, and the evening finished with the loudest fireworks I have ever heard in my life, sadly because we were still in the stadium we didn't see as much of them as I would have liked. All round, it was a fab day.

Today started like this:Egg on toast with love (from Mr Monda). How nice.
It has been lovely and sunny today, so I did what most brits do and went firstly to the DIY store and then to the supermarket.
In the afternoon, I did some sewing:and we finished off the day with a BBQ dinner in the garden.
If only every weekend was like this one. I'll go to bed tonight tired, but happy :o)

I knew you were my kind of girl, Monda. I would have loved to have been one of the 86 thousand too...

Oh wow - you lucky thing. The Foo Fighters are excellent!

The weather was glorious wasn't it? Glad you had a lovely time. x

That really is one heck of a lot of people! The concert sounds great though - Moogsdad is a Foo Fighters fan and will be very envious when I show him your blog!!

Your Sunday sewing is fab - I think I'll on the shopping bit though!

Yes I agree, they do seem to go too quickly. Sounds like you did lots of lovely things. Happy week to you.

Mmm, Dave Grohl. Mmm. Having a bit of a moment...rather envious of you actually.

What a lovely saucy breakfast!

I forgot to ask what length you might like your bracelet - drop me an email,

what cuties!! I love how your recent post shows them unsewn and you can see how different the finished product is to the sewing pieces - a lesson to anyone new at softie making (like me) who's toys always turn out too skinny!!
