Thread Name: BS: What are you up to this weekend?
Subject: RE: BS: What are you up to this weekend?
Schlepped 280 handmade Christmas cards across London to Waterloo, unstacked chairs, set out wine glasses, bottles, mince pies, plates and napkins, schlepped across the river to the City to sing at a wedding in the Wesleyan Chapel (it was beautiful, by the way, singing 'Silent Night' in German and making the bride's mother smile like a lighthouse), back to Waterloo to set up 280 handmade Christmas cards out on tables, sing in the chorus for Handel's 'Messiah', serve wine, mince pies and cards to the audience, go back and sing the second half of 'Messiah' - note to self: didn't realise the Hallelujah Chorus was the original Standing Chorus, must try it in the Middle Bar at Sidmouth and see what happens - clear up and schlepp back home with 260 handmade Christmas cards, 120 glasses, 2 cases of leftover wine and about 80 mince pies.
Sunday. Cleaned house, cooked lunch, helped child with homework, washed 120 glasses.
I've already been shopping today (Monday and it's not even 10.00am) and about to start on the rest of the cleaning... and writing out some of those 260 Christmas cards!
Next weekend is cancelled... unless someone else does the cooking.
