Good morning peeps!
Well, I do hope you had a lovely weekend, and aren’t too upset that it is Monday again, Friday will be here before we know it!
My weekend can be summarized as follows, with pretty much no photos because I am a bad blogger like that (I still have to get the Bruges pics onto the computer)
Friday evening I spent at a friend’s house eating far too much food, and spending a fair chunk of time making Disney Princesses out of play-doh. I don’t know who had the most fun, me or Jack!
Also had some 90’s vs 00’s music program on in the background during our late night catch up which these days consists of considerably less alcohol and karaoke than they used to (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), and realised that hit me baby one more time is 16 years old!! Oh dear lord…
Pete’s trip to Newcastle got cancelled unfortunately, so instead, on Saturday, we ended up going to the cinema. We saw the Imitation Game which was really good, and also quite horrendous at the same time, when you realise what actually happened to this guy who made such an impact during World War 2 – I definitely recommend seeing it!
Sunday was spent stressing about how messy the flat is and how short of a timespan it is until Christmas and how we actually have got nothing prepared yet. Then instead of doing anything I watched 2 hours of House and Gogglebox and made some biscuits that have nothing remotely to do with Christmas prep, but they were very tasty and so quick to make it’s ridicilous! (Actually, I got a little bit of tidying done but not as much as I’d hoped
All done whilst finishing a book via audible, so I felt super efficient, having managed to bake AND read!
I also cooked ham in coca cola, which frankly was no way near as amazing as Nigella told me it would be and left a sticky mess of burnt in coca cola on my stovetop… Hate when that happens!
But all in all, I’d say the weekend was pretty good – I’ve decided to try and not stress about Christmas this year (hah) so what if it’s not all super tidy, and I forget to order some of the foods. It usually turns out quite well regardless. I really should start writing that to do / to shop / to buy list this week though.
How was your weekend? Are you all en-route for Christmas? (please say no, apart from Sarah who has a genuine excuse)
