MIMM: last minute plans

Isn’t it great when last minute plans come together 🙂

I had a day off on Friday, more of that to come later in the week.

I had an outline of my weekend in mind. I knew that Ben was going to watch a football match on Saturday, so I planned some shopping.  I knew Ben was working on Saturday night, so I knew he would be sleeping on Sunday and I would have to entertain myself.


We were supporting the inlaws in the Village Panto – Panto at the OK corral – Ben won a tin of prunes in the raffle.  Many would think this was a booby-prize, but I was pleased 🙂 Our friends were also there. Chatting I said I was at a lose end the next day, and Sharon invited me shopping with them. I jumped at the chance.

We stayed with Ben’s parents overnight.  Ben made me coffee – by the bucket load.  After all that he found his Mum’s hula hoop – well, I had energy to burn!!

hula and coffeeWe dashed off to find Sharon and her Mum because she had an appointment.

Oooh yeah!

Oooh yeah!

The boys went off and had a manly time watching football in the pub.

We were given this:


When we met up again Ben went off to the football, while I went to find some lunch.


I didn’t eat all the wrap, but I polished off the persian chicken and salad – yum! Bit salty with the pickled turnip, olives and sundried tomato.

I made my way to the gym, where I stayed until Ben came and found me.  Let’s keep this small…

Sunday came, and I started the day with attempted pancakes – not my best effort.

I was glad he did. I got to meet more people, and I took a pack for Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal, which I love to do every year.

I was kindly offered a lift into town so I could catch the train home. I made the most of the opportunity and did a bit of clothes shopping – whoop whoop 🙂

Thank you to my photographer for taking these photos, and many more which ended up on the cutting room floor.

I’m not convinced by the oversized grey sparkly top – let me know what you think, keep or return?

I looked at some jeans with inbuilt lift and shape.  They were twice the price of these I bought here.  This is why I squat!!

What did you get up to this weekend?

What do you think of the grey-silver top, keep or return?
