My weekend

I can't believe it is almost over. I try to make the most of my weekends but sometimes it is just too hard to get out of bed and use my time more productively!

Yesterday was a huge day. 3 friends and I went to a music festival.  It was stinking hot before we left, it hit 33 degrees at 11:30. We went to the pub for pre-festival lunch and drinks, during which a cool change came and it dropped 10 degrees by 12:30. As the day went on it got colder and started to bucket down, so we got soaked and the festival grounds turned to mud and mush.  Luckily there was some shelter and we made the most of it in between acts.

This is us before the rain hit:
Things got muddy:
And messy:
Besides the cold, the rain, the mud and it being a long day, we had lots of fun, and I feel like we are back in Festival Mode. Looking forward to the next.

Since I had no hangover this morning and wanted to make the most of my Sunday, I woke up earlyish and cooked up some Mexican Mince :

for my famous (only in my household) Taco Salad:

and also used my Tupperware hamburger press to prepare some burgers for cooking later on today:
Now I am sitting on the couch, watching the kittens taunt each other, playing on Facebook and Twitter, and being generally unproductive.

Speaking of the kitty-brats:
Me and Roy

Better go do... something... before this weekend is over!

I don't think I have ever been to a music festival where it didn't rain and you went home with very muddy feet! Or least if it didn't rain there was a massive water fight you you still went home with muddy feet!

Taco salad sounds interesting, care to post the recipe?
