The Thursday That Thinks it's a Friday

How wonderful are 4 day weeks? I'm no Christian, but I love Easter :) I actually woke up reasonably early, and as Hague was at work....yes work :) He started his new job yesterday...I lazed in bed, and then had a bath before going to collect him from the station. As he'd been the one at work, I cooked our dinner.

A simple minestrone soup, but I started the base off in the same way Hague had done the tomato sauce yesterday and boiled up a tin of tomatoes, onion and seasoning before adding in the vegetables, stock and pasta. I think adding passata negated the boiling down of the tomatoes, but the soup was still delicious, and did a great job of filling us both up. We then had the luxury of a couple of hours together before I had to head in for work, my last night of the week though, so not all bad.

It wasn't too bad when I got there either, with only one line running, so the faint, optimistic hope that maybe, just maybe we might get away early. First things first though, and my first break munchies.

Still loving the Red Berries squash as you can see! The lines went out shortly afterwards and the cleaning started. I'm not a fan, but with my music on, and left to my own devices to clean according to my system I'm quite happy really, and by getting stuck in time went past quite quickly and lunch time was soon upon me.

A definite change from the norm, but I really fancied a cheese and cucumber sandwich. It really hit the spot, although it wasn't quite as filling as my usual lunches but it was gorgeous, sometimes only a cheese sarnie will do :)

With lunch totally enjoyed, it was back to the cleaning, and we actually did get out a wee bit early at quarter to 5, so an extra hour of Easter for me :)

Work is now done until 2pm on Tuesday....Yay! Although Hague is back to work at 10am Tuesday morning, but it means a lovely long weekend for us, much needed as I'm working my next week off - which is going to be a right shock to the system! I hope you all have a lovely Good Friday...without too many Hot Cross Buns!

Don't let Easter derail you....and if you do fancy treating yourself, the shiny, sparkley, purple SW bus of awesomeness will be waiting for you on Tuesday! x


  1. The only thing that would have made your cheese sandwich better would have been adding crisps to it! Nothing beats a cheese and crisp sandwich

    1. I used to like bacon crisps in a cheese sarnie :)

  2. Mmmmm cheese and crisp sarnie, has to be cheese and onion crisps tho for extra cheesiness! :-)

    1. Definitely bacon ones lol - veggie friendly of course!

  3. I have to agree with zoe it has to be cheese and onion though I may have to try some bacon in I want a cheese sandwich
