A weekend of food, friends and family

Going out for a beer on Friday to kick off the weekend

This weekend has been a very good one. It started right after work on Friday when I went out for a nice meal and a beer in a Japanese and Chinese restaurant. After the lovely food it was home to spend a nice Friday evening on the couch with beer, snacks and a movie.

Lovely dim sum

Saturday started, as it should, with a nice sleep in. Did a quick tidy up and then we walked in to town after the thunder and lightning finally gave up. We had a few little errands before we went for brunch.

After eating we went for a little stroll in town. And as it was the first weekend of the Premiere League I got to catch a little bit of football and enjoy a nice Bulmers cider before we went home to get ready for the evening.

In the evening we were lucky to be invited to my friends house for dinner. We had a very good time and the lovely veal she served was very tasty. The dessert and drink was good as well. A good night with catting and laughing to round off a great day.

Today we are having a new lazy morning and getting good time to read blog posts, something I have missed sending my Sundays doing. Later it is time to go up to my mother’s house. She recently had a birthday and today we are celebrating with a lot of family and pizza. I’m going up there a bit earlier to help her prepare. It will be lovely to see them all again after the summer holiday.

Hope all of your weekends has been great and that you have a lovely Sunday.

  1. It sounds like a very nice weekend. The Chinese food looked delicious and Saturday seemed like a good quite one too. I also enjoyed some Premier League this weekend πŸ˜€ Hope you have a good time with your mum and enjoy the pizza, Maja πŸ™‚

  2. Tsingtao is such a great, crisp beer to go with chinese dumplings! Asian food is among my favorite, and last night I had sushi at a very popular chain here in LA called Sugarfish…a great collection of sushi and hand rolls – in this case with a Sapporo…yes, it’s the weekend so let’s have fun!

  3. Lot of things there I don’t eat for this or that reason, but they look pretty. I miss a photo of you stuffing something on a fork into your mouth. Don’t hide so much!! 😺 Have a good week too! 😺
