Relaxing and re-setting

Last week was too much for me, I needed to spend most of the weekend consciously trying to relax and get over it.

I didn't sleep well on Friday night with frequent cramps and trouble relaxing but a couple of hours sailing on Saturday morning followed by manic cooking all afternoon helped to get my mind off work and onto other stuff. The weather continues to be excellent, the sun shone and there was a nice little offshore breeze to contend with (meaning no waves) without fear of swimming.

MK and the kids fetched our newest 1/4 cow from the farm so we are now ready for another few months of minced beef based dishes.

We had guests on Saturday night, I cooked pork filets stuffed and rolled with porcini mushrooms, bacon and sage followed by apple crumble with some of the tons of apples that we have from the garden. All was well, but getting home at 2pm from sailing without having bought the ingredients made for a very concentrated effort to be ready for the 5:30 arrival. We made it just in time.

Sunday was an altogether more relaxed day with Crossfit at 10:00 then dropping the kids at different parties and friends in the afternoon. MK and I even managed to find half an hour for a walk in the forest before collecting the little darlings.
