I know @Ami2301 is doing something or other. Can't quite recall... ;)

But what does everyone else have planned for this weekend?

    Taking the kids to a music shop tomorrow. I've decided it's time for them to start to learn to play a musical instrument. On Sunday, we are hoping to have lunch or dinner at a restaurant or pub in town as a family after church service.

    Have a wonderful day, Ami!  Will be thinking of you.  xx   :smiley:

    I'm going to see Downton Abbey at the cinema tomorrow with a couple of friends so looking forward to that.  Visiting my parents on Sunday.  Hoping the weather stays nice.  :smiley:

    The email's really not that exciting @Ami2301! :wink: I promise.
    But seriously, have a wonderful weekend. The whole team will be thinking of you!

    Do you have any instruments in mind @April2018mom?

    I've never seen a single episode of Downton Abbey (shocking, I know!) so I probably won't be rushing out to watch the movie.

    We'll be going bowling this weekend and I'll also finally be taking eight years' worth of magazines to be recycled!

    Awww we will all be thinking of you tomorrow @Ami2301 - I'm so excited for you!!!!

    We were supposed to be going away this weekend to Bridlington where there is an art festival called Land, Sand, Stone that is all about Land art, Sand drawing and Stone balancing. They are attempting the world's longest sand drawing!! But unfortunately my son broke his collarbone this week and so he's not well enough to go so we will be having a quiet weekend in.

    I just saw that season 8 of American Horror Story has started though so I might watch that!!

    Guitar perhaps @Adrian_Scope. I’m currently looking at teachers online who teach musical instruments. I want to learn as well but I’m currently expecting so it will have to wait until next May! 
    I also want to see the Downton Abbey film too! Maybe for my birthday in November. We are also having a meeting to talk about a possible Halloween party as well on Saturday afternoon at my flat.

    We are going on another kids free trip this weekend! We plan to travel to Maidstone on Friday afternoon, stay at a hotel, look around a bit and have some fun! Cannot wait.

    That sounds great @April2018mom, it's good to get some time to yourselves away from the kids sometimes. 
    Have a wonderful time. :)

    I have a pretty quiet weekend as I'm still recovering from my holiday last week! It was totally worth it though!

    I hope it stays sunny for everyone, any plans?

    No work this weekend :cold_sweat: so looking forward to my first three day weekend in months. Today catching up with my studies on the balcony to enjoy the sun today. Tomorrow catching up on some chores around the house, as well as clipping the cats claws - cos I love living on the edge  B) - will need the glasses to cover the scratches around my eyes. Monday catching up with the estate manager to go over the AGM and a few other matters. At some point I will need to check if the rucksack I bought is big enough for what I need to take for the holiday with my daughter in October, and buy some non slip shoes for the boat.

    I am also halfway through season 2 of Lucifer so hoping to reach the end of season 3.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!
