5 Things To Do This Weekend

We’ve had a busy few months with our weekends booked up ages in advance and a fair bit of travelling around so are now looking forward to some downtime, we have a whole month of free weekends and I cannot wait!  Gray likes to know roughly what we are going to be doing so I have put together a list for him, kinda like what I guess mums have to do for the school holidays!

Enjoy a good walk – Since I got my FitBit we have been walking every evening and I am really looking forward to having the time to go for long walks at the weekend and up my step game.  Going for walks not only clears your mind, it’s also the ideal aerobic exercise for me. Combine it with a pub lunch and you’re onto a winner.  We plan to retrace our steps along the canal this weekend and weather permitting are also hoping to get up on the Malvern Hills.

Visit an Escape Room – Escape Rooms are team games where you have to solve the clues to escape from the room usually within an hour, kinda like Release the Hounds without the dog chase bit.  Or the gore.  Okay maybe not that much like Release the Hounds though I certainly pretended we were on the game show when we recently visited one in Manchester. 

Have a movie night – While I do love a trip to the cinema I much prefer watching a film from the comfort of my sofa.  Grab some popcorn and snuggle up on the sofa with your favourite film or two.  Last Saturday we ended up watching three films - Pride, Pitch Perfect and Mean Girls.  I’m sure you can work out that was a night in with the girls which also included lots of cake.  Yum.

Have a Game night – Get out the board games you have and see how much fun will come out of it, there is nothing like a bit of Monopoly or Cards Against Humanity to play at the weekend with your friends.  Or how about a bit of online bingo where there is a vast variety of games to play and enjoy. You can explore the 75 and 90 ball bingo games or even play on their progressive jackpots to win cash in the comfort of your own home.

Do a bit of Baking – We were away for Gray’s birthday so I didn’t get to bake him a birthday cake this year and I feel a bit guilty about it.  The whole art of baking can be very therapeutic though obviously the best part is you get to eat the cake after you have baked it!  Now do I go for Gray’s favourite cake or mine ;)

What have you got planned this weekend?


  1. I'm currently deciding between a visit to the Tate Modern or London Zoo....haven't been to the Tate yet but can't resist going to see the monkeys! Stephen :o)

    1. I haven't been to London Zoo in ages, I vote for the zoo too!!

  2. Ah you can never go wrong with baking - and eating! - a cake!

  3. I love escape rooms! I did one in Birmingham and it was so much fun. I got really into it.

  4. I love a games night. I'm at my parents' for the weekend and it's what we do whenever all of us are back. Last night included a musical game called Note Ability, which is hilarious for a tone deaf family to play (but probably not so fun for our neighbours!)

  5. Love this post! Game nights are always great!

  6. Eating cake and watching films will always be a good call! ;)
