OK what are you all doing THIS weekend

Recommended Posts

Lets see what everone is up to the weekend.


Tonight is veg in front of the telly with the fire on night, might try and persuade Mum to come in the hot tub with me after James is in bed (he just splashes around too much in the dark). Friday was formerly take away night but now its a lighterlife veggie soup with a savoury drink mixed in and LOTS OF SALT. I only have salt in my evening soup (and I dont' always have evening soup, sometimes I go for hot choc instead) but I do so love it and my blood pressure has gone down LOADS since I started lighterlife.


Saturday we are taking James to a party which is about 30 mins away (yes they drive their daughter that far for a primary school). They live on a farm and the kids party is 3 till 5, I plan to leave James there and then go to Freeport at Braintree as we will be quite nearby. When we go back at 5 we will be staying on with James as they are having fireworks at 6pm but the wanted the parents back first so they are having an adult party for their freinds in the evening and have invited us all to stay. By 7pm James will be ready for bed so we will come home and then for me its glad rags on, pick up my friend and off to a housewarming for an ex colleague.


Sunday I'm hoping the weather will be fine for chook cleaning, a few garden tasks and run the mower round to pick up the leaves - I have one tree that has managed to drop ALL it's leaves this week - seriously last weekend there was not a leaf on the ground beneath it and this weekend you cant see the grass and the tree is bare.

I'm planning to clean out the chooks first thing, and then OH has offered to keep an eye on the children whilst I paint the dining room :D


I find it so theraputic, and it's been driving me mad, we have the paint, and it's new plaster from the extension, so minimum preparation :D We moved back in mid June, and it's now November, so I think it's about time :lol:


Tonight is veg out night, before the mad dash to parties, dancing lessons and rugby, and Remembrance Parade on Sunday

plus OH has offered to make me a curry, and it would be very rude to refuse :lol::wink:

:lol: Go Chelsea!

Vegging night for me too! OH has just done a lovely curry so now I'm putting my feet up while he loads the dishwasher (threw a wobbly earlier as I do ALL the cooking, cleaning, housework etc. but on the one day I go out to work I do not expect to have to start cleaning up a full days mess at 8pm like last night! :evil: ) Tomorrow night DS1 and I are going to see Alice Cooper, Motorhead and Joan Jett at the NEC :dance:

I have to laugh - your'e worried about 10 year olds seeing you bowling? A couple of years ago our department went out to a local chinese buffet for our end of term do. I was having marital difficulties at the time (it may have been around the time I threw him out) and was up for a good drink. The table across the aisle from us was full of YEAR 10 GIRLS! Several of which were in my classes but....it didn't stop me downing 10 pints (well that's what I got charged for!!!)


Not one of the kids ever mentioned it.

Well, I am REALLY looking forward to a weekend of staying at home with my two boys. We've been so busy recently, dashing here and there (we were in Braintree a couple of weekends ago Pengy - stayed at the new Purple Hotel. I did think abouot you and your hot tub!) I want to read the papers, potter about the garden and go a play in the park with our friends and their children.


We're also going to Grandma's for dinner on Sunday - yummy.

Then home, light the fire before OH comes home and a nice snuggly evening.


Garden jobs etc on Sunday then off to Berlin with work in the evening :(

Nothing much this evening....... have just finished helping son fit a new shower - except the plumbing here is dire and it won't work as we want it to. Made Broccoli and Oxford Blue soup, with roast pumpkin and potato 'croutons'........


Tomorrow now involves a quick trip to the plumbers merchants to get a different shower, which wasn't planned :twisted: , and then over to the Domestic Fowl Trust for a few chickeny things and then on to sort out a wood burner.


AnnieW and her OH are coming to see us Sat. pm and will help us to despatch a few 'diiners'


Sunday - Remembrance Service at Church............ followed by some sort of 'mucking out'! always plenty of that to do :roll: - we'll be roasting a lamb joint as well.

good to read what you are all up to. Mrcluck gets his hair off about our constantly busy weekends running the kids around from A to B and back again to Piano/kickboxing/windband/dancing etc.... Sunday is always a free day unless the Scouts have sprung it on us on Friday that it is a church Parade, attend or else.

However this weekend my mum is having the kids overnight for us on Saturday as James (mrcluck!) is in a band and they are supporting Paul Young (of 80's fame) Los Pacaminos. The bands myspace is http://www.myspace.com/midnightpilgrims. (Dont think I have done that right??) anyway I am going to watch and then plan to have a sunday morning in bed, which is usualy unheard of, then I am going to my mums for lunch and pick up the kids then home. Mrcluck out all day as the band are playing in a country music festival in Gloucester. [/url]

We get a letter home on the friday night at about 10pm when he gets in with a list of stuff for the weekend. It is sooo anoying :twisted: Josh wont be there as he is at his nannas in Chester so I am off the hook.

I'll be heading off early in the morning just to check there hasn't been too much damage overnight.


I went down this morning and although there were quite a lot of boats that had been turned over and deposited all over the place, the damage was nothing like we had anticipated given the dire warnings.


The wind has dropped a lot so I'm hoping that all will be fine tomorrow.


So I think tomorrow morning might be a walk - inland!

I'm planting 1000 crocus bulbs! I'm chair of our new gardening club and the parish council gave us a small grant which we decided to spend on bulbs to plant around one of the two village signs. The lovely man at the garden centre then got us 1000 bulbs instead of the 500 we could afford and paid the difference himself! We can now plant around _both_ signs! Hopefully it won't just be me and my 3 fellow committee members who turn up to plant them!


Other than that. tomorrow someone is coming to collect a chicken ark we've sold on eBay and dh needs to mend the tongue and groove panelling in ds1's room where I had to crowbar it off today to rescue a starling that had fallen down the chimney (first time in 4 years that's happened - hope it's the last because the scrabbling noise was horrific!)


On Sunday we're off to a christening 2 1/2 hours away with some quite posh friends so am already worried my boys will behave badly!
