A beaut weekend!

As my wee guy says 'It's a beaut day Mum!' and yes it was a beaut long weekend. Yes I know there was a bit of a blip on Saturday, but had stuff I wanted to do inside anyway so didn't mind what the weather was doing outside! Sunday and today have been brilliant, nice sunny skies and warm temperatures.
Saturdays job was 'cleaning' up the old printer tray I bought recently. Sanded back the rough edges then set about removing the old paper from and back of the small sections. the dirty areas below is the paper yet to be removed. Took about 3-4 hours but it turned out really good after all that sanding and scrubbing. This pic is halfway through the cleaning process ...

A recent purchase will help me cut out the right size photos and bits for the tray. Got a great deal on this punch at a local store where I had a loyalty discount voucher to use - was a very happy customer!!
A pic of the yummy tea (just before cooking it) we had on Friday to start the weekend - yummy homemade pizza - apricot sauce, shredded chicket, brie cheese, peppers and cashew nuts - yum yum!
And a nice drop that was re-released for the summer last week. Am not much of a beer drinker anymore (think I overdid it in my student days LOL!) but this is a nice drop on a hot ....... *happy sigh* ..... roll on summer ...... :)

Hope you all had a great weekend

Woo hoo - go you!!!

I'm NOT a beer drinker either, but funny you should blog about Monteith's like that. I'm quite partial to the Radler over Summer.

Ooh-la-la - not a bad looking pizza there buddy!

That pizza looks delicious :-)
I'm not a huge beer drinker either, but I'm a fan of Summer Ale too ... and Radler, Mrs Frizz! I try to stock up at the end of summer, because I hate having to wait so long for it to be re-released!

That tray is looking good Mich! Can't wait to see the finished product. Yum at the pizza. Looks good I am a sucker for cashew nuts. I love my gigga punches they are so handy dandy.

Very cool tray - am very envious of your punch purchase...

...And that pizza and beer (my favourite!! - although I do quite like "original" too....) almost make me want to do that student diet again. Tonight at least! LOL
