that was the weekend

I had fine plans for this weekend, for getting the tree and decorations down out of the loft and decking the halls. Just one time it would have been nice to actually do it on the 1st December, the date I usually aim for and I don't think have ever achieved. It usually ends up getting done around the 12th, and one time a few years ago it didn't get done at all! Life always seems to get in the way. 

The Prof had a sore throat on Saturday morning, but felt alright otherwise, so we ran some errands (including some Father Christmas stuff which the Prof went off to do and wouldn't tell me about, ooh exciting). In the evening we drove over to Kent for dinner with friends. By the time we came home his sore throat had developed into a full blown nasty cold, so today consisted of a lie in and then a quiet and lazy day. 

We had boiled eggs and toast soldiers for lunch, there's nothing like nursery food when you're feeling poorly. We ordered in Indian for dinner this evening, with enough leftovers for tomorrow's lunches. I did some laundry, watched some television and worked on a Christmassy hat I am knitting for myself. 

Fingers crossed that I don't catch the cold, and for getting the tree up next weekend! 

weekending with Amanda


  1. We won't put our tree up for a few weeks yet, it gets too warm here to have a tree last all month.
    I hope your husband is feeling better, if my husband has a cold he thinks the world is ending.
    Enjoy your Indian food, it's a favorite here.

  2. toast soldiers? I need to look that one up. Love your weekend and that photo is beautiful :)

  3. Indian sounds lovely! Hope you both are feeling better and dodging the flu. And I would say as long as the tree goes up by the 24th, you're doing very well!

  4. i hope you get that nastiness. we have been battling a similar thing at our place... yuck! you don't want it.

  5. I hope you are still cold and germ free! Btw, love the tree and white lights :)


please leave a comment or just say hello, I'd love to hear from you!
