Plans for the weekend?

Adrian_ScopeAdrian_Scope Posts: 4,478Administrator Scope community team
What does everyone have planned for the weekend?

My eldest is getting back from a school trip in the early hours of Saturday morning and I’ll have to wait up to go collect her, so I think Saturday will be as quiet as I can make it while we all catch up on sleep!

What does everyone else have planned?

    Hello @Adrian_Scope    Thank you for asking. Have a ritual every weekend.

    Mine is listening to Sounds of the Sixties.   Radio 2 starts at 6am to 8am .

    Memories and stories.  

    Foodie films on TV .  With my note pad and idea head on.  Adapting new recipes.  Change many of them.  Find some so complicated.

    Have a chat see what is on here supporting every one . Any messages from friends.

    Good breakfast. Always a grill.    Kitchen tidy up look at TV anything to inspire and give me some education, knowledge

    Usual look at Talking Pictures the afternoon film..  

    Come back on here later.

    Prepare soup for Sunday. Do Italian Chicken Pasta and Bean Soup make a start. Plus anything Sauces for the week.

    Saves time.

    By late evening making meal for Saturday . Any thing TV.  Not a lot then Soul Saturday put my Northern Soul music on.

    Quiet time reflection some meditation and bed time prayers to friends whom I care about.

    Sunday  Up early after prayers listen to Classic FM while on here to catch up . Anything needs a response.  Friends and messages.

    Sunday Grill and watching any foodie films.  Same ideas anything I can use.  Usual tidy up. Love to have a sweep does help.

    Quiet reflection and anything to look at TV.

    Making food for the week continuing.  Look at the weeks menu anything to plan or need for the fridge.

    Anything diary to plan ahead appointments etc.

    Evening meal Soup sandwich anything to listen to music or watch.  Early bed time. Prayers and rest.

    I hope that is enough for you to consider.  Might be other things but usually that is it.

    You did ask .

    Take care.

    I don’t have anything planned yet but the kids have been hinting for a Harry Potter Movie Marathon. Hoping to couple that with popcorn and pizza (and my phone and housework as I can’t concentrate for one movie let alone multiple 😂).

    I'm going out on Sunday test driving a car. The dealers are very kindly giving me use of the car for 6 hours so planning on taking my daughter out for a few hours. Not something we do very often but making an effort this weekend. I hope the weather is kind to us.

    I hope the weather is good for you too @zakblood, so not so many buckets of water!! What happened to your roof and when is it being fixed?? 

    How old is your daughter @poppy123456? That sounds like a lovely Sunday!

    I hope you’ll tell us all about your Father’s Day treat @Richard_scope, what are the parties for? 

    What is your workshop @CockneyRebel

    @Chloe_Scope is your blog public, can other people read it? What do you blog about? I like the idea of blogging but my thoughts are a bit too dull 🤣

    I love how organised you are @Spiceman! What sort of grilled breakfast do you have?? I always plan to make Saturday our big breakfast day and wake up too lazy so settle with cereal 😂

    Hope you get lots of sleep on Saturday @Adrian_Scope!!

    For the last few years, when my health allows I teach young adults and married couples a range of basic DIY skills.
    I have always worked with my hands but can no longer sustain the effort, so rather than waste the skills of a lifetime I try to pass them on to some of the local younger generations.
    From basic mechanics and car repair, woodwork and carpentry, brick laying, home decorating and how to use a sewing machine or wire a plug. I also do wood turning and decorative flocking.
    The new workshop is for basic metal work, simple welding, car bodywork and spraying and cold forge metal work to make things like scroll brackets or clock surrounds up to gates, balastrades and furniture by twisting, bending and rolling and riveting
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    Not up too much this weekend.  Some housework and a trip to the supermarket, the usual for a Saturday.  Its the gala day in the village where we live tomorrow so may toddle off to that to watch the procession and see the stalls.  Hopefully the weather will stay nice for it.  :smiley:  Just watch some TV at night and play with the cat - lol!  On the Sunday will visit my parents for Father's Day.  :smile:

    Hi

    Its a big weekend for me!

    Off to Keswick on Sunday, staying at the Keswick Country House Hotel to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary (where have all those years gone).

    Because of unsettled weather, will be doing lots of bus journeys to various lakes ( Buttermere, Ulswater, Grasmere and Crummock water), with of course creamed scones around 11 am.

    I still feel like I’m 21 though! My psychiatrist always agrees with me.
  • thespicemanthespiceman Posts: 5,355Community champion Disability Gamechanger
    Hello @Hart86  Thanks very much. Lot of the organisation is because of my illness.

    Having a mental illness means how am I today.  If I am good then make food for the freezer or fridge.

    I have no one to rely on use the diary add a planner. Done this for around a very long time.

    With out a structure falls apart the day the systems I have set up.  Have failsafe and backup systems all the time.

    For example forgetful memory so have post it notes every where. Another one. We have all done this run of loo roll or tissues or bin bags.

    Products for cleaning. Another one.  

    So always buy these in bulk save money either on line or look for offers supermarkets.

    Have to. Having anxiety some days really bad depression. Reason I love the community here is to pass on these tricks, tips and time savers to you all.

    By the way you can get a lot of the advice from your wellbeing community health unit who runs lots of courses to benefit your wellbeing, health.

    Very informative, useful.

    I use a pan found on AMAZON  another excellent thing I have done.  Signed up to PRIME for £7.99 a month get lots of ideas and time savers.

    New grill pan has three compartments one for grilling Sausages, Black pudding anything like that Bacon.

    Other two for either Eggs scrambled omelettes do that every time.  Use two Eggs. Milk and my Egg spice mix.

    Bake Beans create my own.  Buy Beans many in water add any tomato sauce you have in the fridge. I do all the time. So helps to use that up.

    In every Culture have a Breakfast with beans we use Bake Beans. In other countries use Black Beans or other like Pinto.

    Add in spices to your taste.  Chilli and Spices are used to help digestion.

    I buy some with spices already in.   Mixed ones . Beans are low in fat help with digestion, plus associated problems. Good for low blood pressure helps with energy.  

    Also helps to fill you up. Something I know am an advocate of what budgets are tight.

    Add to that Eggs all the worlds Breakfast most of them love Eggs.  Or contain Sausages in one form or another it is buying the right kind of Sausages.

    In my case Chicken ones or Pork spicy with more than 70 or 80 % sausage content.  Some or not.

    Buy rubbish Sausages meal be terrible.  Do not mind spending on my Breakfast .  This is the good start to the day.

    Does not have to be expensive.  Have and do eat Cereal usually midweek but make must share. My own or buy one with a low sugar content.

    Some supermarkets have muesli with nuts, seeds, dried fruit great but watch the sugar, and salt content frightening.  Some others.

    If not Cereal use Bread have Beans on Toast or Poached or Scrambled Eggs with Bacon smoked grilled.

    Hope that has given some inspiration and helped answer your question.

    Pleasure to talk to you.

    Please can I ask what do you like for a breakfast?

    Take care.

    That sounds amazing @CockneyRebel!!! What an awesome thing to do!! I left home with very little in the way of life skills, they’re not passed down like they used to be, and schools have dropped them too which is such a shame. 
    I still don’t know how to change a fuse or a plug (let alone the other stuff you mentioned!) and rely heavily on internet tutorials for most things!! 🙈

    I saw on Good Morning Britain recently that a massive percentage of “millennials” admitted that they would hire someone to change a lightbulb for them as they didn’t know how. It’s sad how society has changed. Really love the sound of your workshops!!

    It’s interesting you are talking about life skills. I loved learning life skills when I was a child. Among other things covered in the sessions, I was safely taught how to use a iron, how to cook, how to sort out a first aid box etc. I also learned about inappropriate and safe relationships, sex education, how to contact emergency services.
    My mom also spent time teaching me how to carry out simple repairs, street safety, the importance of laundry etc. It seems that most people today would call in someone else to do the task for them instead. One more thing I had to learn was map reading. My mom also made me solve problems myself and instilled in me the importance of communication and teamwork skills too.

    The two parties were birthday parties for my wife's friends. My Father's Day treat was a massive roast dinner followed by a Jaffa Cake Cheesecake!!! My daughter bought it out of her pocket money too.

    I think that was part of the problem for me, my parents didn’t really pass anything on, and schools all but dropped life skills. When I left home it was a real shock as I’d never done anything like ironing, sewing or laundry, I couldn’t even replace a button!! I’m so keen to pass these things down to my own children so they don’t end up in a situation like I was, but I’m having to learn “on the job” so to speak, even with cooking it’s more us learning together than me teaching them things!

    I LOVE a roast dinner, yummm. I don’t eat the meat but all the veg, potatoes etc etc, mmmmm. I want one now! 😂

    The Jaffa Cake Cheesecake sounds amazing and how sweet is it she bought it with her own money?? I bet you felt very lucky! Hope the parties were good

    We actually switched it and went for a Spider-Man movie marathon instead!! 
    We watched Spider-Man 1, 2 and 3 and then The Amazing Spider-Man 1. Apparently we have to get through them all before the new one is out in a couple of weeks 🙈
    Apparently it doesn’t matter that they have nothing to do with each other 🤷‍♀️

    Hello @Chloe_Scope  Concerned not getting enough sleep .  Just a idea have a routine.

    Plan for sleep not get stressed . Have relaxation before bedtime. Not have the worries and anxieties .

    I know never easy. 

    I also may I advise a suggestion make meals  with pulses and beans and certain those foods that contain tryptophan.

    These are foods that are be able to send you to sleep an enzyme. In the foods. 

    These include Pasta whole meal .  After having a Pasta meal feel sleepy.  
    Plus anything like Turkey or Chicken .  Lean meat.  

    Lettuce sandwich know to work I believe as is Milk in the microwave not hot just a few seconds. With some Honey stirred in to the mug.

    Hope that helps.

    My weekend did a Sunday Sweep and tidy up prepare the week ahead. Meal plans.

    Some TV and some listening to the Radio.  On here a little while .

    Take care.

    Much better. I managed to escape for 2 hours. I packed a lunch and left for two hours (all I ate were crisps and some fruit) alone. I went to my office to work. Before returning home I stopped by the post office to send off a letter and supermarket to do our weekly food shop. Now I feel unwell myself. So now I’m sipping hot tea in the bedroom alone with the door locked (my partner is entertaining them tonight).

    That's Awesome @Chloe_Scope ! you need to chill out once in a while. What do you write about?

    Last time I have been "swimming" while on holiday in Spain in Easter. The water was still so cold but nevertheless I went into the pool. dont need to say what happened next 😅

    I miss swimming at sea that was wonderful haven't done that since I was a teenager. 

    What has been putting me off is being tired after work and not finding someone to go with, I like people's company but that's not an excuse I can tell my neurologist, I have strict orders to go 😁

    What about you? when did you last swim?

    Working from home today. Then two days of pottering around doing odd jobs but mainly resting.

    Had to leave work early on Tuesday due to pain in my arm and visited the local accident and urgent care unit. Xray showed bone degeneration and calcific tendonitis. Anti inflamatory tablets upped again. Few days working from home and the pain levels have dropped enough to cope with, plus an improvement in the range of movement. 

    Fortunately I have a real diamond of a boss. Working from home is an acceptable option, however is generally discouraged but my boss worked with HR so that it got put in as part of my accommodations to help me cope with work and sustain my job. She also fought my side when they did not want me to use the raised desktop I bought for use at work to make life easier. Again they have accepted this as an agreed accommodation between my boss and myself, and just waiting for IT to set it up with the double screens and for a check that it will not cause further harm. This is due to happen next week, so a bit concerned.

    So main plan is to catch up on some reading and some binge watching on programs I have been meaning to catch up on for a while.

    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!

    Maybe just relaxing and paying bills, maybe read a book and that's exciting as it gets for me :) 

    Ditto..Bare minimum....My conditions dont clock off at weekends regrettably..
    I cant believe the activity levels in some of these responses 😒😂😂😂

    @Opus think your DWP comment is inappropriate you don't know the individual circumstances and even if those with more active plans are claiming anything from DWP

    Someone could be describing things they do which actually involve hoists/a lot of family help/an adapted car that you know nothing about.

    I did have plans this weekend I will rest at home due to autism and pain sorting life ready for an upcoming operation. Hope everyone has a lovely weekend

    Next weekend we are heading to a escape room (Saturday) followed by a family meal out. On Sunday instead of church, we will go to see a movie or a car boot sale.

    It's Friday!!!!

    This weekend I am having my hair cut on Saturday and we have family coming round on Sunday. Pretty chilled out and hoping to catch up on sleep and writing!

    Does anyone else have any plans?

    Hello @Chloe_Scope   Great to hear no doubt you look amazing and look good.

    Usual sparkles and glitter balls for Strictly. The marigolds are on first thing. Good sweep and some wipes and some funky stuff to accompany the duties of house work.

    Swing those hips back on the dance floors the Northern Soul Clubs with my flowery shirts my memories.

    Because it has been raining all week have piles of washing, towels concerned my smalls and everything around the washing. Need I say this concerning me, the night time attire in the day not good as also the neighbours have decided to get binoculars and telescopes  me the neighbour prancing about while in Jim jams.

    Not a pretty sight not good to leave my blinds open while cleaning.

    I just have enough this wet weather how you coping in your part of the Country.? Hope you keep safe  and warm, wellies on standby.

    Hope to see anything on Tv if not my Radio. Be on here as usual a rest Sunday and some quiet time .

    Miss a Saturday Matinee the old films just lately Talking Pictures being not good.

    What ever your doing make it enjoyable your in my prayers.

    Thank for the support this week, thanks very much kind words.

    Take care of yourself.

    @thespiceman

     :D got to love Strictly @thespiceman! The rain has been horrible, luckily at the moment it's dry, let's hope it lasts.

    Fingers crossed about your washing, oh and the pesky neighbours!

    Take care. :)

    I am taking the twins to see a play tomorrow morning. We are staying with a friend in London for five days. Went by train up to London today. Afterwards, we will visit a art museum and have a meal in a kid friendly restaurant. On Sunday we are planning to have a family ball game in a park and then a quick walk around plus a picnic lunch too. But I have not decided what to do for the remaining two days of our stay here in the capital.
    Suggestions welcome! Can anyone recommend a good tea room or not?
