This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

Participating - in the first Photo an Hour challenge of the year. Janey from Is That You Darling had the idea to do one each month and I'm definitely up for that! (blog post to follow tomorrow)

Feeling - decidedly middle-aged. The 52 Lists prompt this week was 'things to do on a rainy day' and one thing we like to do when it rains is play some board games (although the post hasn't actually materialised yet - see below...). So our Saturday night was spent on the sofa - playing Scrabble. Oh yeah, we're so rock and roll...

Scrabble Board Game

Hanging - new curtains in our new room. We finally found some the right size and colour at a bargainacious £12.99 in Poundstrecther. There will be a room tour (possibly even a vlog) at some point when all the pictures have been hung and all the little things tidied up.

New Blue and Green Curtains

Phoning - for an ambulance. Well not me, Andrew did the ringing and it was for his dad who spent Saturday into Sunday morning with severe food poisoning/gastro-enteritis and then ended up in agony coughing up blood. After a long wait in A&E it turned out he'd actually vomited so hard that he'd torn his oesophagus - which is exactly as fun as it sounds. He was in surgery for 5 hours overnight and at the moment is stable in the Intensive Care Unit in Bristol.

Rearranging - a few blog posts. I'm moving this week's 52 Lists post to 28th January and then I'll carry on as normal with whatever this week's prompt is. I also had a January sale outfit post (an actual outfit post, something of a rarity on here!) all set up but obviously my chief photographer was a little bit busy with the NHS yesterday!

What did you get up to at the weekend?
Hope your weekend didn't involve ambulances or hospitals!

  1. So sorry about your journey to A&E - we spent our fair share in them over the last year with various in laws, not so much fun.
    But high five to Scrabble playing. I'd have ours out all the time if C would let me (he won't!)

    1. Thanks Michelle, A&E on a Sunday afternoon is certainly well...entertainment, but obviously a bit of entertainment we'd have rather not had!
      Scrabble is fab, Andrew always reckons he's crap at spelling so that's my excuse for getting him to play Scrabble! :-) xx

  2. Oh No! Hope your dad is recovering. Not nice at all. :( XX

    1. Thanks Sharon - he's getting better day by day. :-) x

  3. Oh my goodness - how awful! I really hope your father-in-law fully recovers soon.

    I bloomin' love Scrabble. Being able to spell things properly is totally rock and roll :p Those curtains were an absolute bargain too- well found! xxx

    1. Thanks Katie - he's certainly better than he was this time last week! Think it's still going to be another few weeks in hospital though but he's getter stronger every day. :-) xxx
