Coffee, Cake and Chanting

Mum came down as usual for coffee and brought Nephew with her so he could do some more lifting for us. Then Aunty Edith rang to say she would be popping in to see us after she'd visited Joan. With no time to make a cake I nipped down to the bakers and bought one instead. 
The footie tickets came this morning much to Thomas' excitement. Their arrival brought on a bout of football chants at Number 38, including some rather naughty ones that Mark used to sing when he was younger. Anyway, Thomas has been practising 'Blue Moon' this afternoon. This is his standard photo pose at the moment. Every time I pick the camera up he cheers and punches the air!
Amy slept out last night and has been shopping in Manchester today with friends. It's good to know she's capable of getting there and back and is familiar with the place as the college she wants to go to is in the centre of the city so it's one less worry for her and us; if she goes there of course.

Tonight we're having an Indian and a film, San Andreas, which will be right up Thomas' street (the film that is, definitely not the Indian), he's on his favourite chicken nuggets and chips. 

Enjoy your Saturday evening.

    1. The cake was pretty good considering it was shop bought. Thomas has never really shown any interest in football but his friend is a real fan and has a season ticket for Man City and is always playing matches in some league or other. Thomas knows a lot more about it than I thought - Obviously his friend has been coaching him.

      I much prefer Strictly to X Factor although If they just got on with the singing and didn't have all those adverts, hyped up drama and the audience shouting so you can't hear what's being said I'd feel differently. They just need to make it about the singing. xx

  2. I made an Indian - lamb Burma but we decided to have it today - always better the day after ! Instead we watched a rather harrowing Jude Law film Black Sea with oven baked jacket spuds dripping in butter!

  3. Yes, some foods are definitely better the day after, chilli is one of them. I love baked spuds, the others not so much, but they'll be making their usual appearance here on Bonfire Night. I like a film for Saturday evening although lately we've struggled to find something we've fancied. San Andreas was passable, especially as Thomas was watching it with us. Lots of explosions, earthquakes and tsunami's. He was in his element. xx

  4. Pacific Rim; if Thomas hasn't seen it, he'd enjoy that one as well.

    1. It doesn't take long to get going and is action packed from start to finish. Of course, there are a couple of smoochy scenes which had Mark and Thomas shouting "just get on with it" lol. xx
