What a Lovely Weekend!

What a wonderful weekend that was, in more ways than one! Not just the fabulous weather, my eldest son was home for the weekend too. Even spending a significant proportion of my time at work didn't spoil things!

Friday night saw a Night Shift, but getting up on Saturday was great. We all went out for a meal at our local Indian Restaurant - I was a very good girl as I am currently trying to lose weight with Slimming World, so no naan or any of my usual favourites for me. This was followed by a hilarious evening at the theatre watching Charley's Aunt with Stephen Tomkinson who really hammed it up and was just fab, as was the rest of the cast.

And although I was at work yesterday too, we still managed the buffet lunch at the Chinese - all you can eat, they say!!!!! Don't tell anyone, not sure if yesterday was a red day or a green day, I have a sneaky suspicion it was neither!!!!!

Not much knitting progress this weekend Im afraid, so I'll leave you with a photo of one of the flowers on the camelia my dear OH bought me for Easter last year. Beautiful isn't it!!!

It sounds like you had a lovely weekend! I love going to the theatre, we went to see "noises off" at darlington a couple of years ago, it was so funny! It had the actor who used to play nigel in eastenders, no he's Mr Hope in Holby, you know who I mean!!!!!
The flower is very pretty! Did you see the link on gilraens blog, "what type of flower"?? It sadi I was a daisy, surely that can't be right, a weed that grows in the garden;-)

Ooh, I just did that quiz, and was a daffodil - seems apt for me for once, I haven't got over being Percy Weasley yet! ;)lol

No such thing as a weed terri - a weed is merely a flower growing in the wrong place ;)- and I LIKE daisies!!!!!

What a lovely weekend! And the Camelia is just beautiful - I love them and have a couple in the garden (looking less robust and spring-like than yours though!)

Daisies are lovely! All flowers are, I love your Camelia, I have several in my garden and one of them is looking fabulous at the moment. I'm glad you had a good night, I wouldn't have been as virtuous as you, I love my Indian, Peswhari Nan and all ;) :)
