This Weekend I…28th March

This Weekend I...
 

This Weekend I…

On Friday evening, I had the Red Nose Day coverage on while doing various bits. I really wanted to see the Love Actually sequel – it was quite frustrated that, that didn’t come on until nearly 9:45 pm. Amusingly enough it’s had 151 complaints made to OFCOM following the airing on Friday. I had tweeted about how inappropriate it was to air Innuendo Bingo pre-watershed and got an earful because normally it airs in the afternoon on Radio 1.

This Weekend I….

The boys and I went to see Kung Fu Panda 3 at the cinema. It wasn’t my first choice as I quite liked the idea of going to see Moana but seeing as Jaxon was with us it needed to be him-suitable. I’m sure Moana would have been fine but we decided Kung Fu Panda would have been more his thing. The song You’re Welcome keeps coming up on the Disney playlist so that one keeps getting stuck in my head!

Following our cinema trip, we grabbed a pizza for lunch and had a picnic in the middle of the living room floor. Our Sidekick had a meat feast concoction thing that Chris had come up with because of an offer he saw. I had a Ham and Pineapple (I think I was on a large but it took me like three meal times to eat it!) and Jaxon was supposed to share with me but ended up just eating the little garlic bread pizza to himself. Jaxon loves having indoor picnics. I just have to make sure that when the weather is good enough we make sure to have outdoor picnics too.

During the afternoon our friend Tom (from Tom’s Garden Services) came to fix up our garden fence that got damaged during Storm Doris. He did a great job again. I just need to get round to painting the fence now (and hopefully doing all the fence and not just the bit closest to the wall).

This Weekend I….

Sunday was Mother’s Day. Jaxon made me breakfast in bed (with assistance from Daddy). Chris carried it up the stairs and then at the top of the stairs Jaxon held onto one end of the tray while Chris held the other end.

This Weekend I….

Following breakfast, we headed to church. This week we started a new series which leads up to Easter which is called Road to the Cross. It starts with the events of Holy Week – there was a summary to get up to Maundy Thursday and then up to the Passover Meal. While we at church I got a cuddle with my friend’s new little baby boy – he’s gorgeous! Jaxon wasn’t so keen on me hugging a baby that wasn’t him. He ended up going to find Chris and hugging him super tight!

This Weekend I….

After church we headed home, I worked on tidying up the garden  My neighbours said hello and we had a chat – I said that I couldn’t do some of the gardening because my secateurs had run away. My next door neighbour said I could borrow hers so she posted them through the reeds on the trellis so that I could get them that way rather than having to walk around the front of the house.

This Weekend I….

I was being super domesticated and after hanging the washing out I also ended up pulling out the sofa with help from Our Sidekick so that we could tidy out under the sofa. It was so messy under there! I think I need to write it on my to-do list to do it every so often whether it really needs it or not.

This Weekend I….

There was a hiccup with part of my Mum’s Mother’s Day present so I delivered part one to her house on Sunday afternoon then when Part Two arrived yesterday I nipped round and dropped it off while running errands. There are road works on her street at the moment, so while the road was temporarily blocked I ended up semi-abandoning the car in the middle of the road, running to the front door, opening it, shouting “Special Delivery BYE!” and then shutting the door. By the time I got back to the car and had my seatbelt on Mum was stood on the pavement outside her house looking a bit bemused!

This Weekend I….

Actually managed to stickerate in my planner! I know right just a bit crazy. I’ve been having planner wanderlust again. I purchased some A6 Chic Sparrow inserts from a member of one of the planner groups that I’m part of. Now I just need to decide which A6 TN I would like. If any was an option and I didn’t need to worry about the customs charges I would like an American Dream from Chic Sparrow (but turns out that one is discontinued!) I guess my next choice would be a Mr Darcy or Creme Brulee maybe. Either that or I’d keep it UK and go for a Meadowgate Leather one. For now I’ll keep looking at Lyra and Co and see if there’s one that comes up there that I like. I would like the camera print like this Hobonichi Weeks cover but I’m not sure if there is one.

 

What did you get up to this weekend? How was your Mother’s Day? What did you get up to?
