The weekend...

Was great!

The weather was perfect, so I was in shorts and t-shirt the whole time.

Saturday saw us shopping in Canterbury, with the girls going off to the girly shops while the boys and I went to game shops (the boys bought a sci-fi game for the xBox all about aliens and huge monsters - great fun) and then went on to have lunch at my usual watering hole. Cheesy nachos, burritos etc all round.

Sunday was a busy one. Out with the dogs, then a bit of food shopping, then up to visit Hunphrey the pony to stack his hay and install a new seat for my mom to sit on and admire the view.

After that I went back home and we had a barbeque which was perfect - sun, beer, great food, etc. The only bad moment was when I dropped my steak through the grill into the coals but I fished it out and it was OK - I do like my steak well done, afterall!

After that settled it was bathtime for the dogs! Started off doing Spot, my dad's dog who started off hating it but ended up loving it. The it was Custard's turn. He just went nuts, running up and down the garden in between each stage - water - run - shampoo - run - rinse - run - rinse again - run.... He wore himself out and wasn't keen on his evening walk, so we took it slowly and only did a short circuit of a field nearby. Poor Custard, he snored away the rest of the evening.

I guess the weekend finished at 7am this morning! The last episode of Lost was screened here this morning, starting at 5am - Mrs RC switched it on and watched it in bed....

Hope you had a great weekend - and if not I hope this week makes up for it!

That all sounds perfect to me. We had rain but I got some good housework done.

Glad you had a nice weekend. It's too hot for me though.

Wreggie - Well you just had a great little holiday so I think you deserve a bit of rain :-)

Marie - It is cooling down soon, I hear so it should be better for you soon.

Sounds like a perfect weekend! You always seem to get the most of them and enjoy every minute. I really need to learn to do that too.

Rock Chef said...

Terri - Yep, we try to make weekends fun family time, quickly fitting stuff like laundry into the gaps...

I'd call that a great weekend!
Washing a dog (or two) can be as much exercise on the dog as well as the washee (try washing them both together). Of course, afterwards, the dogs tend to like to roll in stuff just to add to the fragerance.

It is Tuesday at 7:20 am and I just watched the opening of your Parliament - I love the history - the carrying of the maces - the House of Commons slamming the door in their face - the Queen riding in the carriage! Anyway - thanks for your encouragement - and if I ever have a dog again I'm going to name it Custard!

I like how much family time you have. I can picture you washing the dogs, they run, you rinse, they run. How funny.

Rock Chef said...

agg79 - Both at once? Now that would be worth filming!

Claire - It is fun isn't it? There are those who think it is all a waste of time and money but not me. If they don't spend it on this they will only waste it on something else.

Technobabe - Family first, IMO! I have wasted too much time on "friends" who vanish when you need them most.
