    Default woohoo almost the weekend :-)

    So ... What are everyone's plans for this weekend?

    I knew I had to spend it baking as we have a dance school fundraiser on Sunday selling afternoon teas :-) but thought it would be a pretty relaxed weekend.

    Then I realised silver band were playing at local school fair, DD has a party and then also a dance class.

    I've been asked to serve at church which means i'll be there all Sunday morning and just had phone call asking if I can/will take DD for a tutu fitting tomorrow morning!

    Have good weekends everyone xx

    I have actually got quite a chilled weekend.
    I'm going out tomorrow with a group of friends to see a wham and Duran Duran tribute and we are going all out 80s. Fingers crossed it's nice as it's outside.

    Sunday ds1 has his wing field day and has to be at squadron for 630. Then we will go to church as it's the 3rd week of dd2s first communion so will go to celebrate with them.

    My brother lands on Sunday so it will go from a manic house to a very chaotic house for a few days

    First day of summer holidays here, my boy had a sleepover last night but obviously not much sleep was had!

    He's now at a birthday party while I do last minute holiday shopping before we leave on Monday.

    Also got his last swimming club session later.

    Thought holidays were meant to be relaxing?!

    I am going out for cocktails and dinner tomorrow night though so that'll be good!

    DD finds out today which class she is in next year. Last year she was heartbroken that they didn't put her and her best friend in the same class. Amazingly they have stayed best friends despite being in separate classes. Her friend is coming over for a playdate tonight, so I'll either have two very happy or very sad little girls to entertain tonight.

    Tomorrow I'm going to do my second Parkrun and try to beat my time from last week. Then DD and I are having very overdue haircuts. I have to do some last minute shopping for holiday bits and bobs (flying out on Thursday).

    Sunday DD has a party and then we are going for pub tea with her best friend and her parents.

    Loocyloo I used to love going for tutu fittings. What colour/shade is it? That's the most important question!

    Fussy, where is your brother landing from?

    Kellib, hopefully your son will have an extra early night tonight, and maybe even a lie in tomorrow!

    Tomorrow is official opening of the refurbished sports centre where my daughter works, so I may go along and do some free classes in the morning, it's also the start of the Frome festival, so a big Food Fest in town tomorrow with live music so that's a must and then on Sunday we are going to see our friends who have just returned from an adult gap year - I have a feeling I will be even more disillusioned with working by the time Monday comes although I know they have to find jobs now they are back, they are already talking about saving money and heading off again after Xmas.

    Enjoy your 80's gig Fussy Elmo - I wanted to go to a big 80's gig (actual artists) down in Exeter and Southampton over the next 2 Saturdays but to cover other people's holidays my husband has to work both of them, so we can't go

    I did sign up for Parkrun and printed off my number but seem to have been plagued with niggling injuries and haven't got to run in one yet - I'm not a natural runner though! Hope you have fun and you beat your PB.

    Lol! I signed up about a year ago and only just got round to doing one last week! I have been doing the junior parkrun (2k) with DD though. I 'should' be able to beat my pb - it was pretty slow!

    You are very enthusiastic - trying 'some' free classes! My body would be shocked if I tried just 'one' class!

    LOL! everyone is so busy!

    enjoy your holidays all those off on, and those getting ready for holidays

    Maza - I have no idea what colour the tutu is !!!! I know white was/is the base colour ... but so far we've had just white with 'diamonds', white & turquoise, white with dark navy overlay, and 'rainbow unicorn' ???? !!!! I decided that as she has to wear it, and the tutu maker has to make it, it was up to them! I have reminded DD that she will be wearing this tutu for the next few years, so she needs to really like/want/live with what she chooses! ( all I ask is that pink ballet shoes go with it! same as her tap costume - she can have whatever she likes, as long as black tap shoes work! - we were at a dance festival recently, and one dance school; all the girls had glittered tap shoes, in the same colour/pattern as their costumes !!!! its fine as long as they don't grow and you need to replace a dozen pairs of dance shoes at the same time, especially competition ones that might only be worn a few times! ) sorry - little shoe rant over!

    That sounds way too busy for me lol. I will be packing, showing the moving guy around and playing dungeons and dragons this weekend. I am so tired from all the crazy packing and returning the rented house back to pre-childminding appearance that I just need some quieter time.

    I have been known to sport the odd pair of fairy wings myself

    When I lived in Sydney, a friend and I were in the botanical gardens, and came across a wedding where the bride, groom, attendants et al were all in full size butterfly wings !!! the poor registrar did look a little bemused. Even the harpist had wings on! We just couldn't stop laughing. When my friend got married, they went abroad secretly - she still says it was just so I didn't turn up in fairy wings!

    Oh loocyloo, that brings back happy shoe memories- for me, not sure my mum would regard them as happy memories. Do people still dye tap/jazz shoes? I remember every year having to hang several pairs of shoes on the washing line to spray them with car paint. I've still go a pair of my old tap shoes and the heel is a bit chipped and you can see layers and layers of paint - silver, pillarbox red, cobalt blue, sunflower yellow, gold... My dad used to go mad with the smell, which is why we had to start spraying them outside.

    A nice quiet weekend with DH planned.
    RSPB walk tomorrow with cameras, Friends for dinner, football, reading my new book, trying out a set of lush bath time nice things that I had for my birthday in March!
    Gardening if the weather allows me, my herbs have grown double the size in the last fortnight and need cutting and freezing pronto. Colouring.
    Happy weekend to everyone.
