Propping my eyelids up with matchsticks tonight.  
Won't be long before I hit the hay after a couple of big days. Yesterday was an all-day shopping marathon with my sister, niece and almost-daughter-in-law; we left home at 10am and it was nearly 7pm when I turned into my driveway. Almost-d-i-l came back to my place and we were shortly joined by son, pizza was ordered and then we settled back to watch Sherlock eps 2 and 3, which they hadn't seen previously.

After that we got talking, and it was well past 3am by the time they headed home. I sat up until they texted to say they'd arrived home safely and then headed off to bed.

Today was a pretty laid-back day; pottered about the place before heading to the supermarket. Late afternoon my sister invited me to join her on her dog-walking expedition, and I took control of her littlest dog while she had her blind dog in hand. He's amazing, you'd never realise he was blind just by looking at him; he trots along in front of her like any full-sighted dog, just happy to be out and about.

After all the walking, though, both yesterday and today, I can barely stand upright tonight. Feet are sore, thighs are sore, calves are tight... bed will be welcome.

It was very much fun, thanks! I went to bed quite early as a result though, and actually got a solid eight hours.

I am currently reminding myself that you *like* to shop. *g*

So, did you get some goodies?

After one of my mother's killer shopping expeditions we always used to soak our feet in a pan full of warm water and salts.

Me? Like shopping? Hell yeah....
And goodies were bought. Mainly clothes from work, but the really exciting bit was picking up some pieces for my (discontinued) china pattern at the Royal Doulton outlet shop (god could my weekend get any more exciting? Wonder I wasn't hyperventilating *g*) But seriously, cake plates reduced from $11.99 each to $2.99 each. For an eight-place setting, that's a huge saving.
Warm water and salts sound like heaven! I'll remember that for next time. :-)

I am relieved to see in the comments that you like to shop, or otherwise I would have been condoling with you - but it was fun? Thank goodness for that! Sympathies on the feet, though.

Pizza and Sherlock is good. Last night I had pasta, garlic bread and Musketeers.

I've seen a few references to Musketeers recently but have only just discovered it's a new series - I thought people were talking about the recent movie. It looks quite pretty interesting.

It is very pretty interesting! Peter Capaldi is running away with it in the interesting character stakes, but the musketeers are running around and riding and flourishing their leathers and their cloaks and that's all I need, really.

Just as well that's all you need, with Peter Capaldi unavailable to reprise his role in the next series. Really looking forward to seeing him as the doctor, I have to admit.
