It's the Bank Holiday Weekend - got anything planned?

Post  PurpleIvy on Sat Aug 27, 2011 6:50 pm

I thought maybe folks would be busy so we could have a thread for this weekend for 'what are you doing today?'.

I've got a combo of work and homemaking till mid afternoon. got bro coming with his family, so catering for up to 8. Will be nice to have them here. I will probably treat my SIL to a manicure as well while she is here. DS taking the younger ones to the park/zoo/minigolf in the morning so please request some good weather for them. Hub will be reading his paper after a hard day's walking today and I will go with Bro and SIL to IKEA.

Going to make meatballs with proscuitto (or rather kids will LOL!) and lemon syllabub pud (James Martin) so kids can assemble that as well. Italian out tonight so no cooking bounce

Got large quantities of fiddly sewing to do for my designer, so short stints on that for good concentration I think.

How about you?

My parents are coming this morning to help us relay the rest of the patio area. Then we'll watch the rugby league Challenge Cup final and have a takeaway (we always do when the parentals visit). When they've gone home we might watch an opera. Tomorrow just some general puttering about then we'll be watching United v Arsenal in the afternoon. Not sure what we'll be doing on Monday.

Have a good time everyone.

Nothing much planned for today, so far. I need to go shopping for a few bits and pieces so best get on with that so as to not waste the the day. Will sort out some lunch when I get back and then might make a few more Christmas cards this afternoon. It's been a busy week so am enjoying a quieter day today. We're been invited to a friend's house tomorrow for lunch. Afterwards I'll be uploading some listings onto eBay. No definite plans as yet for Monday although DS and family might be calling round. Hope you all have a good week-end and Bank Holiday.

OH is working all weekend and having mostly lived in touristy areas I grew up not going out on the bank holiday as places were so much nicer the rest of the year when they weren't so busy so it's fairly normal. We do have to go to the garden centre on Sunday though, which will probably be heaving, as we need to get some herbs. Going for a flying visit down southshire to visit OH's brother who has just come out of hospital after a fairly major heart episode and he's been told to cut out salt almost completely so thought we'd take some nice herbs so he can pep up his food without salt.

Hi,

Ive just popped on not usually online at weekends. I am going out soon to town. We have some street theatre and music performing as part of our summer festival so am going to watch that, also have some food shopping to do. Not sure what we are doing the rest of the weekend depends on the weather. Monday night we are at the theatre to see The Buddy Holly story i bought tickets for oh birthday. I love bank holidays and oh is looking forward to Monday off too.

Have a good weekend all and good to see you online.

We don't normally go out on BHol either, I hate crowds. We usually just enjoy the time at home.

The rugby? I was supporting Wigan Warriors but my team is Widnes Vikings (I'm a season ticket holder there). The footy I will be supporting United - my parents met on a train back from Old Trafford in the 60's so they rubbed off on me. The same can't be said of my eldest brother who supports Liverpool FC. There's no accounting for taste.

I am going to list stuff on ebay today, I can't keep my house tidy die to the amount of crap, oops, lovely stuff that has accumulated.
Also changing my name on here I think, if I can. Yes I can & have gone from hermum, for anyone who's interested. I've kept the same avatar.
I hope that everyone has a relaxing/productive day depending on your plans.

It sure was, I could hardly believe it! I think the penalty save will do De Gea the world of good too. Even better for me I have Phil Jones and Wayne Rooney in my fantasy league team. Sadly for me I also have Michael Dawson and Wojciech Szczesny! Still you can't have it all Very Happy
