Soap making, Christmas Cards and Shopping - Our weekend that was

Another weekend seems to have flown by but we certainly managed to squeeze in quite a bit...

After a nice lay in I whipped up some pancakes for brunch and then we got the soap making kit out. We made a lovely variety of coloured and scented products that the Mini Mes have decided to sell to family and friends to make themselves some money for their boxes. After lunch we had fun on the X-Box playing various sports and then we did some baking. We made a delicious warm dessert, sticky syrup sponge, which everyone enjoyed!

In the afternoon we chilled out with pizza and watched Dolphin Tale. Thankfully the lights were off so the Mini Mes couldn't see me welling up, soppy thing!

We met up with my parents in the morning for breakfast at Wetherspoons and a bit of shopping in town. I was good and had a sausage roll instead of a large full English like the Mr but it looked unbelievably good. We had a browse around the shops and I fell in love with this beautiful charm for my bracelet. I behaved and didn't purchase it so I've popped it on my wishlist for Christmas instead... I've been a good girl all year Santa, promise!

In the afternoon we watched Mr Popper's Penguins and Jingle All The Way as requested by the Mini Mes cuddled up on the sofa and I then I made Toad in the Hole for everyone. I'm still doing Jenny Craig and really enjoying it. First weigh in tomorrow eek!

What did you get up to this weekend?
