My Weekend Was Mostly Spent...

The format for this has come entirely from Love Audrey- one of the loveliest blogs I read. You should check her out, if you don't already. Though she is much more organised with these posts and does them on a Sunday. Around these here parts, you get posts about weekends on a Tuesday- because really, why not?

My weekend was mostly spent...

- waking up early  (7:30am!) without an alarm
- slowly getting dressed in a faintly weather-appropriate outfit
- beaming at the sunshine outside my window
- feeling lazy when M and M came in from their early morning run

- making the three of us pancakes
- letting M do the washing up
- popping to Sainsbury's for supplies
- chatting with M's visiting family members

- going for a stroll around the park in the sunshine
- reading the paper

- having a late lunch of pea soup and a crumpet
- showing a friend around the house
- going for tea and cake in Coffee #1

- finding out how many people Harold Shipman killed (250+, according to wikipedia)
- taking an impromptu trip to Ikea
- buying new bedding, new pictures, and bathroom scales
- assembling a six-layer rainbow cake. Wonkily.

- putting together homemade pizza with M and M
- making myself look like a girl
- eating homemade pizza and spilling some on my top
- carrying a six-layer cake around the corner
- panicking over whether the cake worked

- blushing at everyone's kind words about the cake
- drinking a bottle of red wine

- getting overly competitive at Singstar
- uttering the phrase "NEVER apologise for victory!"
- becoming overall Singstar victor
- stumbling into bed at 2:15am

- waking up far too early considering how late to bed I was
- tidying my room after the chaos of the previous night
- directing M while he hung my pictures for me
- deciding I could eat branflakes for England
- popping to Sainsbury's for more fruit and hot cross buns
- grating carrots for coleslaw

- drinking my first coffee of the year
- eating hot cross buns for lunch
- finishing Saturday's crossword
- going for a nice stroll in the sunshine

- marvelling at the complete lack of clouds
- running into J & N

- watching the rugby at J, K, R & L's
- inwardly weeping over Wales' performance
- popping to Sainsbury's again for pudding supplies
- making a simple apple tart for pudding
- drinking G&Ts with M, M, J & N
- eating M's delicious pulled pork, spicy coleslaw, and baguettes
- chattering over apple tart and vanilla ice cream
- breaking a glass whilst drying the dishes
- speaking to Mama CupandSaucer for the first time in two weeks
- putting myself to bed at 10:30.

And supposedly, that was a quiet weekend. How was yours?
