Hello there all, and how was your weekend?
The past 72 hours have been jam packed and just wonderful.
I started my weekend off on a high. After waiting 50 minutes, and repeatedly getting thrown off of the site, it happened. It finally happened.
I got tickets to see The Spice Girls! My poor neighbours! I couldn’t contain my excitement and screamed with happiness.
I managed to buy tickets for the tour from added UK dates, just minutes before I had to leave for work.
Saturday was a hectic day at work, but I was on a high knowing that I was going to see my favorite childhood band with a group of friends next year…. The hotel is booked and the road trip is already being planned.
I can’t remember the last time we had a girl’s night out. I met up with some of my closest friends, we had maybe one too many pitchers and cocktails, hours of catching up, and danced the night away to 80’s and 90’s dance and pop music until 2:30am
We ended the night eating Chinese takeaway at 3 in the morning, in our PJs and watching Friends. A Saturday evening with my favourite ladies was perfection.
We paid our respects and showed our support Sunday morning by attending the 11/11 memorial and giving our minutes silence. We then spent the afternoon supporting local musicians at the Ukele Festival. It was great fun, listening, and singing along to the music before having a Sunday roast dinner at one of my favorite places, The Bargemans’s Rest.
I had Monday off, and indulged in a relaxed yet productive morning.
The afternoon was spent grocery shopping, running errands, doing some chores etc.
We finally settled down to watch The Incredible’s 2 with dinner.
On my days off when I have time to, I prefer to cook as much as I can from scratch. There is nothing wrong with store bought food or from eating from the freezer, but I find I enjoy my food more, when I know that I’ve prepared and cooked it all myself.
For dinner I made pasta with minced beef in a simple red sauce with roasted vegetables.
For dessert I made sweet cream and jam buns. This was my first attempt at making them, and they were absolutely delicious, if I do say so myself.
A weekend full of food, laughter and great conversation, it was just what I needed.
Tell me, what’s your ideal weekend consist of, and what do you have planned for this weekend coming?
