Weekends....

They come they go.

This one was similar to many, different from some.

Saturday - up early to get the car to the garage for two new tyres and a recharge of the air con system... Daughter-of-Furtheron met up with a friend which then turned into her sleeping over... oh yes I had to pay the friends Mum for out portion of their family holiday which my daughter is crashing in on! Anyway that meant Mrs F and I got a day just on our own so we headed off to local shops for a quick lunch and to buy some ingredients for me to make a Chinese for the evening. I tried a new recipe Chicken with Cashew Nuts and green beans - a definite success and one I've done before Beef in Oyster Sauce.

Sunday I had to pick up D-o-F from her friends but decided to buy a new lawnmower we'd seen on Saturday, our old one has been with us since we moved here 19 years ago and frankly has been making funny noises etc. for a while. I couldn't see the point of paying out £15 this year for a new blade only for it to give up the ghost. B&Q had a nice one similar to our old one for £89 so I got that and put it all together and gave it a test drive. I did think about one of these....



Which my son looked awesome but frankly for our back garden somewhat over kill! So with all I had to pay out this weekend my wallet is considerably lighter than it was on Friday :-(

I've been watching F1 - great race, Rally - good action, Rugby - terrific last weekend action, changing all over the shop brilliant.

Played a bit of guitar in prep for hopefully a mid-week appearance at a local Songwriters Stage night.

All in all a really good weekend...

Bum - a full 5 days at work!!! When's the next bank holiday? Oh yes end of the month!!

  4. Sounds like a great weekend to me!
    No kids, Chinese food (that you cooked no less!) and out spending money!
    Just change that boring lawnmower into a new dress for me and it all spells perfection!

  5. A 19-year-old lawnmower? that's good going. Ours give up the ghost far more readily.
