Outfit: Saturday and Weekend Recap



Barratt Tan

Saturday morning the young man set off on his motorbike to meet his mate for a trip to Scotland. I had my parents coming for lunch and my sister coming to sleep over, so I made up the spare room and got things ready for lunch. My parents arrived and were suitably impressed with my sausage casserole and strawberry tart. In the afternoon my dad helped me to mend the puncture in my bike tyre and my mom read magazines.


Once they’d left I had an hour or so to have some tea and watch a couple of episodes of Gossip Girl before my sister arrived. We went to the local pub to watch the steel band, and had some chilli and rice for supper – very welcome as it warmed me up, the evening was surprisingly cold for the end of May. We didn’t stay until the end of band’s performance – they were very good but it was very cold in the pub car park and it kept raining, so we came home and watched Pretty Woman.


Sunday dawned slightly warmer but very windy. My sister wanted to get a small suitcase for her holiday that she could carry on as hand luggage, so we headed to the outlet mall a few motorway junctions away. She found what she was looking for, then we went to Pizza Hut for some lunch before returning home. We watched some old episodes of Neighbours on DVD and had some tea and then the young man arrived home.

Today was (another) bank holiday in the UK (we’ve done well this spring!) and of course it was very wet and rainy. By mid-morning it had brightened up a little, so we took a walk to the park where there was a model boat thing going on – I say ‘thing’ as it wasn’t really a contest or rally, there weren’t enough people there to call it that. Then we went to visit the young man’s parents. We got there just as they were having lunch so we blagged a free feed. It rained again in the afternoon and the young man helped his dad prop up a fence that had blown down in the wind yesterday. We had a leisurely afternoon reading the papers and ended up staying for tea with his parents.

The outfit is from Saturday: I had two layers under that sweater, wore a coat and scarf to go to the pub and I was still cold. Did I mention that it’s June in 2 days time?
