A Looooong Weekend......
Thursday evening we went to our local pub where they were holding a quiz night. We don’t usually go out during the week because I have to be up for work at 6 a.m., so we thought we’d take advantage of my extra day off. We pitted out wits against just another two teams, consisting of five and seven members. We did exceedingly well coming second to the 7 member team but when we suggested the other teams divided their scores by the number of team members to get a more realistic score, they weren’t having any of it. Anyway, we won four free pints for our trouble but as we’d already had three each we put them on ice for another time.
Friday we did some gardening. Unfortunately our front lawn had been covered in moss and the weed and feed we’d put down showed just how much moss when it killed it all. We decided we would have to re-seed the lawn so had to rake all the dead moss up – this took two hours and it still wasn’t all up! We decided to have another go at it on Saturday and as we’d worked so hard we decided we deserved a treat so went to the pub again to claim our four free pints. It turned out to be a great evening as some friends we haven’t seen for a while arrived and there was a great singing artist on at the pub.
On Saturday after visiting my Dad and in-laws we set to work on the lawn again and managed to get all the moss up, so now we have to sow the grass seed. I’m not sure when we’ll get that done as the weather is abysmal here at the moment, hopefully next weekend will be fine so we can do it then. In the evening we went to a local club with our friends K&T and had a great evening.
Sunday our youngest son and his two boys came for lunch, we had a roast dinner with Yorkshire puddings, the boys adore them. We don’t usually go out on Sunday evenings but of course I didn’t have to get up for work on Monday so what the hell – we met up with K&T again at the pub. Our eldest son and DIL arrived too, unexpectedly, which was really nice.
Yesterday MWM and I cleaned the house from top to bottom and then we picked K&T up at 4 p.m. to go to Nont Sarah’s, a lovely pub/restaurant in Huddersfield, for tea. I made an absolute pig of myself with a starter of Spicy Crab Cakes with Chilli Dip and Salad, then a main course of Pork Chop and apple sauce, mushrooms, onion rings, grilled tomatoes, carrots, peas and chips, all washed down with a glass of white wine. Then to finish off a Cappuccino and a slice of treacle tart with custard. I tell you I could barely move when I finished eating! MWM’s, K&T’s meals were as huge as mine, so I wasn’t the only one being a pig honest.
We arrived home about 6.30 p.m. and just lounged about watching TV until 11 p.m. when we went to bed.
So there you go, that was my weekend, what did you do?
