This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

Collecting - more books from the library. Must stop reserving them; my books have now encroached onto Andrew's library card!

Fitting - security stuff to the side of the house. Andrew's had the burglar alarm fitted for over a year, just never got round to actually fitting the box!

Using - up the last of our Pizza Express voucher codes from Tesco's flash sale the other month. £2.50 in Clubcard vouchers bought two main courses and you know at the bottom of the Pizza Express receipt where it mentions a customer survey? Well make sure you always complete it because they give you a voucher for free dough balls or garlic bread which (unusually) can be used with other offers. So the other week we each had a three course Pizza Express meal totalling £40 - and only paid £15. Saturday night we had a two course meal totalling £32 and paid a rather embarrassing £8.80...

Participating - in this month's Photo an Hour challenge. Round up to follow tomorrow :-)

Cleaning - and tidying and washing and sorting and all the other things which get left when you go on holiday. Almost need another holiday to get over the actual holiday.

Booking - tickets for a few shows. Now's about the time of year when comedians start announcing their autumn tours, the ones that start with a stint in Edinburgh in August. Obviously we try and see heaps of people during the Fringe but if anyone we like is coming nearby then we usually book for the proper show rather than the 1 hour Fringe version. So this week my debit card took hits from Mark Thomas at Bath's Rondo Theatre in July (a Fringe preview), Josh Widdicombe at Weston Super Mare's Playhouse in October, Ed Byrne at Bath's Komedia in October and also (not a comedian) the National Theatre Live screening of the film premiere of London Road at Frome's Merlin Theatre.

What did you get up to at the weekend?


  1. Ooh Fashion on the ration, that sounds good! I've just got money off Camera Obscura with my Clubcard points, they have awesome deals! :)

  2. Wish I'd done something with that Tescos offer! What a bargain. Damn, forgot about Photo an Hour (it would mostly have been me sitting at a computer depressed over school work...)!x

  3. You must go through books like nobodies business haha! Also, yes to discount pizza dinners!

    Ahh, I've still to write up my photo an hour post, I put the photos together last night and I'm going to write the post tonight! I missed the round up again!
