|Out gaining weight but all in a good cause! With Cath who's rocking her hair piece!|
I don't actually like shopping that much if truth be told. I do most of it on-line but once in a while I do enjoy just having a mosey and its the most enjoyable when you don't actually need to buy anything. I did buy some stuff though including some shorts which will look like hot pants if I don't get my mojo back and quick. My husband has decided to lose a stone to help his back - he's not really overweight and looks fit - so this will be an added bonus and will keep me focused.
I got to my cousins in the afternoon and we chatted and ate cream cake with cups of tea! It was a miserable day weather wise. We then got changed and drove to Cath's where we were staying the night.
Then out with some of the Race for Life team - we raised just under £3,000 and celebrated by necking back wine and eating fabulous French food. I had a bottle of rose by all accounts - this is a major binge for me as I normally have a tiny glass once a week. So its the most I've drunk in years. I had calamari to start and a fabulous fish pie for main. My cousin and I were very drunk and leary - what can I say I don't get out often!

Our taxi wasn't there when we exited the cocktail bar but a night bus pulled up so we clambered on board. At this point myself and the cousin were very loud and decided it was a good idea to chant "getting off, getting off, getting off" to anyone that pushed the button. Not content with that we sang "another bites the dust, another bites the dust" whilst waving at the bemused passenger. They all enjoyed it though and it was a jolly bus ride alright. So much so the driver tooted us when we departed. I'm not sure I could have got away with this carry on in my home town - would probably been stabbed or something but this was the leafy well to do surburbs my friends.
So what of this week. I have teacher cakes to make on Wednesday, schools out for summer on Thursday and Friday I have a very special 40th birthday cake to make. I will post pictures later.
Until next time...
