No, not poking friends with swords - though that's exactly the sort of thing I'd be likely to do. I spent this weekend somewhat differently: painting wood preserver onto a stretch of fencing.
It's a surprisingly satisfying way to spend time, actually, because you can really see progress unfolding before your eyes. I was a bit concerned about the colour when we first opened the tin, it looked orange - but it dries to a much more subtle shade, and just looks really fresh and clean.
On two successive days I started early in the morning, and worked through until it was too hot with the midday sun. I'm about half way along the fence, now.
