We had a late night at Number 38 last night. No particular reason, although we did go and see Mum, so by the time we got in and sat down to watch Lucky Man it was 9.30pm. We're very lax with bedtimes at weekend. During the week we all go up together at 10pm which I know sounds shockingly late for Thomas but it means he goes straight to sleep and he's up bright as a button every morning so it must be OK for him.
Anyway, at 11pm last night I was building lego and it was midnight before we were all heading up the dolly dancers. The knock on effect of a late night means a late morning but with nothing urgent to do and nowhere to go it wasn't a problem.
Me and Mark are on a little bit of a health kick (and I stress little). We're trying to get out for a walk every day, not always easy with the weather but today we managed to get to the local shops and back before it started to hailstone and sleet.
This afternoon I made orange drizzle cupcakes and some scones. My inspiration for these was the delicious slice of cake I had at Mrs Gaskells house. I did my usual half mixture and had one as a treat with a cup of tea. I was going to set the table but the monopoly board is out again.
My Prima magazine arrived and until I saw the name by the side of the person on the front cover I had no idea who it was. Is it just me or has Sarah Beeny's face changed.
And poor Betty Boop has been in the wars. I was throwing a quilt over the airer and knocked her off the shelf. I could see her wobbling but didn't get to her in time and she ended up on the floor minus her head. Luckily it's a clean break and Mark says he'll be able to glue her back together, but I'm so annoyed with myself.
And that's been my Saturday. Tonight I've booked the TV for Mr Selfridge and we'll probably watch an episode of Spartacus.
Hope you've all had a lovely day.
