Mr Smaggle and I are so boring when it comes to the weekend. We wake up late, eat breakfast on the couch in our underwear, walk to the city, walk home and then work on our laptops while watching a non-descript sitcom that only requires a partial amount of our attention. Occasionally we’ll have dinner with friends but that’s about as complicated as it gets.
I find the biggest problem with doing something cool on the weekend is actually thinking of the cool thing. It’s far too much pressure to think of things on the spot, so I’ve knocked together a wee little list of lovely things for you to do this weekend.
10 Things to Do This Weekend
1. Go ice skating
Pop on some woollen tights and a little skater skirt? Have a hot chocolate? Kiss your lover on the side lines?
2. Get dressed up for bed
Wear black silk pyjamas? A delicious lace camisole? Nothing but perfume and satin eye mask?
3. Go for a drive in the country
Wear your adventure clothes? Go for a long walk in the bush? Eat apples? Take a thermos of hot coffee?
4. Choose your signature drink
Whisky neat? Cabernet merlot? An old fashioned?
5. Sign up for a course
Coffee making? Flower arranging? Photography?
6. Take your book to a cafe
Order a delicate cake? And a pot of fragrant tea? Escape for a few hours?
7. Go to the theatre
Wear opera gloves? Drink champagne? Bellow ‘Marvelous darling!’ at the curtain call and give a standing ovation?
8. Try a food you’ve never tried before
Blood pudding? Sweet breads? Truffles? Chicken feet?
9. Be a tourist in your own town
Visit your local art gallery? Have dinner at the fanciest restaurant you can afford? Hire a limo for a city tour?
10. Take a nap
A post breakfast doze? An afternoon session? A pre-party refresher?
What are your weekend plans? Doing anything a little bit different this weekend?
I’m having some girlfriends over for drinks tonight and then I’m doing some major Smaggle behind-the-scenes maintenance. You won’t even know I’ve done it but it’s going to take most of the weekend. Sigh! I might schedule some time to take myself shopping too. I think Mr Smaggle is eating my underwear. I’m down to about 3 pairs.
