Phew, I got a whole weekend at home there, barring a trip to the supermarket on Saturday morning (as an aside, I know why I prefer doing this on Friday evenings, far less psychos, screaming children and idiot cashiers. Or perhaps because there’s fewer psychos and screaming children I have more tolerance for idiot cashiers) However, I’d been out on Friday night, seeing some of my colleagues in an entirely new light (some of whom I may never be able to look in the eye again), and learning that they make basques in far larger sizes that they ought to… So I started tackling the ‘To Do’ list on Saturday afternoon, ate something that entirely disagreed with me after dinner on Saturday (don’t try the sugar free chocolate from Holland and Barrat, no idea what’s in it but although the taste was fine, the after effect was unpleasant!), but soldiered on on Sunday. This coming weekend I have an appointment with Sky and Mr Bond, plus a large pile of fabric.
Finishes This Week:
Piece Bee With You block for Charlotte (which thankfully didn’t need the background redo)
Stitch Tease Secret Santa gift, which I can’t show you a photo of, sorry! Plus it’s got to go to someone far away, so who knows when she’ll get it for me to reveal…
Stitch Tease block for Helen – ditto
In Progress This Week:
Brit Bee Secret Santa gift, yeah, another secret thing
To Be Worked On This Week:
Sarah’s Brit Bee blocks
Brit Bee Secret Santa gift
3rd and final Secret Santa project, but this isn’t due til much later in the month
Hope you’ve all had a great week! Linking up to:
Sounds like you had an interesting work night out! Basques in a chilly December Glasgow now that is madness 🙂
Think you need to try online supermarket shopping, you can do it in your pyjamas. Maybe you already do!
um…Skyfall is AWESOME I want to see it again 🙂
Are you sure it wasnt just chocolate flavoured "natural" laxatives?! Your night out sounded pretty stomach churning too… delayed effect? Best of luck for a good weekend coming.
I was thinking what Sarah was thinking!
No fair to tell us that you have finishes but not show us 🙂 Looking forward to the reveals!
Silly secrets….. 🙂
Grown-up girls eat REAL chocolate. (o: It's all natural and good for you.
I want to know exactly what happened Friday night.
Im pretty sure I know what happened Saturday night from your description.
I have a date with wood and paint this weekend.Again!
Love your block – my teenagers have just discovered the Bond films so we might hire all of the previous movies over the holidays to watch together!
I think they make those big basques in the same factory as the jeggings!
That little truck is too cute!!! There's never a dull moment at your place, some things sound more fun than others though.
Aww, I'm sorry you were ill this weekend! Good for you for soldiering on, though. And hopefully you'll be able to make some serious progress this coming weekend! Mr Bond is a great motivator. 🙂
Dude, you have brightened my morning! Not just me, the whole lab. Your supermarket rant (so true) and basque observations (again true) which has lead us back to the hilarious people of Walmart. But, I'm sorry. Sugar free chocolate? What is the point?!? Hope your tum is better – stick to Galaxy!
Be nice to your cashiers, they've had a looonnngggg day serving the 'delightful' public, I'd know, I'm a cashier haha
Lovely block by the way!!
Why sugar free chocolate? That doesn't even make sense. Now sugar free pretzels or chips I can see, but chocolate?
Love the block. Can't wait to see those secrets revealed. Hugs
That truck block is brilliant!
I will avoid all sugar-free chocolate after your words of wisdom!!
It's going to be really fun when all this secret stuff can be revealed
I see you've discovered what can happen if you ingest too much artificial sweetener ;o) I hope that this weekend you've picked up a proper bar of chocolate to go with your pile of fabric and Mr Bond? I can't wait to see the secret projects…
