Busy Long weekend

On Wednesday I worked a 13 hour shift and this meant I got given Sunday Off, I'd already worked last week on my day off so had been granted this Saturday off and already had my normal Thursday, Friday off. Making this a very lovely long weekend off!
Thursday I went out for lunch with Dad, this was lovely, hadn't seen him for ages because I didn't want to meet his new girlfriend and he has broken his collar bone so can't drive. I picked him up and we went to a local brewers Fayre. I got chicken, bacon, cheese and barbecue sauce with chips, salad, garlic bread and coleslaw. On top of this we ordered onion rings! We got 20 each and both eat them all! Felt ill after, but still, it was quite an achievement!
Friday I went out for breakfast with Marc and his best friend. It was buffet for the hash browns, beans, tomatoes, egg, mushroom.... so eat lots of that but I was still hurting from how much I ate the day before so I eat half a ration of bacon and couldn't even touch the sausage. We didn't need lunch then went to my Mums to surprise my sister for her 9th Birthday, We'd bought her a bike and wanted to hide it in the lounge before she got home from school. She was very surprised (especially as it was a day early) and took it out to show all her friends that were still at the park next to school. We then went out for buffet Chinese, which is amazing and I stuffed my face again (For the last time in a while as I really won't fit in my wedding dress next year!). We then went to some amusements, won two voodoo doll key rings on the 2p machines and won a teddy on the claw machine which had a £5 attached to it, win!
Yesterday went to the boot sale, not very much there as it was the last one and wasn't sure the weather would hold. However got 2 DVD's for myself and 1 for someone at work! Marc got a griddle frying pan that he has been wanting and his sister got some maternity clothes and baby toys...I get so broody it's unreal! We then had lunch together and went for a walk with Marc's sister and sister in-law and nephew who is also gorgeous and makes me broody, they took there dog's too who are soo excitable. I was feeling really exhausted, legs hurt and lungs ached but I pushed myself to keep up and no-one ever see's me struggle, except Marc but that's because I moan and moan and moan to him ha-ha... Marc and I then cooked a nice healthy dinner together of smoked haddock, mash, broccoli, cauliflower and leeks. So we're now in to our healthy eating plan which started yesterday and I have planned meals for at least a month...this is to help with his medicals and my fitting in to my wedding dress next year.
Today Marc and I have been watching remembrance documentaries for 9/11, the new ground zero re-build looks amazing and the effort put in is astonishing. The stories of all the lost loved ones is so hard to watch but everyone should to get a real feel for those people and what went on that day. 10 years on, R.I.P to all those lost. Later on I'm going to a fate that both my Mum and Dad organise (awkward) to raise money for the bonfire society that they are both members (awkward again). Annoying thing is is we keep having really heavy showers so don't know if it will get very busy! And we have to park in a field so I'm sure I will get stuck if it gets too boggy but I'm going to go and I'll spend a £10 to help them out and you never know if I have the same luck I had at the amusements I could win something!
Hope everyone else has had a nice weekend!
