Lazy weekends.

I will be the first to admit that this weekend has been a lazy one. A quick trip into town to post some parcels and another quick trip to get some lunch because we just couldn't be bothered to prepare any ourselves.

The children were out so when they got home... they cooked their own dinner.

...and this morning... a lie in!

Why so lazy? Well Friday was the summer ball and my wife and I put on our glad-rags and went out to party:

It was the first time that the two of us have been to a formal event together so we got dressed up and put on our dancing shoes and had a great time. Even tonsillitis couldn't stop me (although I did wimp out earlier than I would have liked due to a distinct lack of air).

The theme for the evening was 'Best of British' and there was all sorts of different food throughout the night to reflect it; from fish and chips to pie and mash, from smoked salmon and oysters to roast beef and pork. Around the event were coconut shies, bumper-cars, old style telephone boxes, classic cars, deck chairs and all sorts of Brit-centric items. The alcohol was included in the ticket price, as was the food and entertainment. Speaking of entertainment, there was a Beatles tribute band, a Queen tribute band (the wigs were PRICELESS!!!), a disco and a string quartet during the main dinner.

It was an excellent evening and I am determined to go to a few more events now that I have the correct uniform.

KITTENS! I have obviously been going on about kittens at work too much because a friend f mine has just become the owner of a cute little black and white kitten called Tizz. It is funny because, as I am typing, I have my resident lap warmer on duty:

Yep, Charmmy is taking up her usual spot and preventing me typing as quickly as I could if I could use my left arm too.

I slept really well last night.

Maybe the break is doing me good.

See you from the chair in the corner!

Cheers :)

It has been a long while since we both went out for dancing and it was a great evening. In fact, it has been a long while since we have just kicked back and chilled out at the weekend too.

A bit of a recharge :)
