Ready for a quieter weekend

Mr C has his departmental cold, so our planned trip to the Computer Museum tonight for gaming has been cancelled. All fine by me as it has been a four days for me this week and I'm ready for as much peace and quiet as the weekend wishes to give me. Some of our senior consultants have had an even harder week and have been Rather Tetchy as a result.

Tomorrow it's supposed to be very so I doubt I'll be going anywhere too far. M-i-l is supposed to be coming over to take us out for lunch, so long as Mr C is well enough, and in between times I plan on soup makings, tidyings up, laundry, writing endeavors and wrapping m-i-l's present. I also do not plan on seeing 5am, 6am, 7am or 8am if I can help it. A lie in would be very welcome tomorrow, for sure.

Sunday the furthest I am likely to go is the store, because our freezer begins to look like Mother Hubbard's at the moment and we have run out of essentials like rolls, chicken pieces and pizza bases.

I am, however, satisfied to report that a colleague who lives in the next village over from this one, and catches the same bus as us, took 53 minutes to walk up to the bus station from work on Wednesday night. When I told him I had taken 38 minutes, he said 'you b****!' with a huge smile on his face. I'm actually going to try and it more often as it was quite enjoyable and certainly gave me some exercise I wouldn't otherwise have had. Even if I was a touch sore and stiff afterwards I wasn't too far off my old top race pace, which is satisfying. Just need to build on the core strength side of it again.

And with that it's back to reading all the other articles and enjoying some more wine before embarking on tonight's writing requirements.

I haven't heard the words 'rather tetchy' since I was little. I hope you get your quiet weekend just the way you want.
I am going Christmas shopping Saturday as well. This is really the only time I like to shop. I have requests for books so most of the time will be in a book store(s).
Enjoy your weekend.

Hope Mr C starts feeling better and glad you are enjoying your walk

It is actually going to be nice this weekend, no wind or rain, so I must get out and take a walk.

I am feeling very hermit-like this weekend, as well, and it's been nice weather out, more's the pity. I am currently ignoring two events to which I was invited tonight, being holed up in my studio, instead. At least I'm being social enough to leave comments!
