This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...
 
Celebrating - the 30th birthday of our local library. It's where I was a library assistant for 5 and half years and I was invited back for the birthday shenanigans (all very sedate, of course).
There was cake, tea and books - perfect!

Enjoying - the first Saturday night we've had at home doing nothing since the end of April!
 
 
 
Watching - a performance of Rent in Concert at the Bristol Hippodrome. I first saw the musical 15 years ago in 1998 and since then have seen it 16 times (and on two continents). I've seen quite a few different musicals but Rent is my absolute favourite.

Baking - a chocolate Ferrero Roche cake for my lovely friend M's birthday. I did the baking and Andrew did the plastering decorating.

Wrapping - M's birthday present, my blogger book swap package and my bloggers secret santa package.

What did you get up to at the weekend?

  1. That sounds like a fun weekend although it's always nice to have a Saturday night in for a change. Our weekend was filled with sushi and trying to avoid the crazy Thanksgiving food shopping mayhem that people are doing here already!

    1. You're right, it is nice to have a night in every so often (although it did feel strange!). I imagine Thanksgiving shopping is just as manic as the last weekend before Christmas over here! :-) x

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
