Week 15!

Week 15 was busy and fun, the sun was shining and I spent a lot of time with family and friends.  Here are the highlights:

On Monday I went out to dinner with the lovely Sandra:
I had a pulled pork burger and it was lush!
Then we met up with Dawn, an online friend from UKScrappers, Dawn, she was so nice and we had a great evening.
On Tuesday I went to the cinema with my girl.  We saw Captain America 2 which was excellent, we both preferred it to the first one.
On Wednesday I was feeling energetic so I cut the grass after work, it's so nice to have the sun shining and be able to get out and enjoy the garden.
Thursday was weigh day, I lost a pound, and enjoyed my dirty pudding :)
On Friday I increased my glasses collection, I love the pink ones because they remind me of Garcia from Criminal Minds :)
We also had Sarah over to watch Googlebox with us, it's getting a bit of a tradition now :)
Saturday saw the arrival of my Studio Calico kit:
And all of the family got together to celebrate my aunt's birthday:
I managed a bit of crafting time over the weekend.
And got week 13 of Project Life in my album.
On Sunday evening I had a lovely cuddle with my boy after a very busy weekend!
I hope you had a good week.

Week Fourteen

Another week has whizzed by and I don't mind admitting that I've even been looking at Christmas gifts to make because the year is flying by!

Here are my highlights from the fourteenth week of 2014.

I had a little win at bingo which was nice:
My very generous boss treated me to noodles and a bad boy dumpling for lunch!
I had lots of my hair chopped off :)
Fruit featured a lot in my lunches, especially after those noodles earlier in the week!
These two had lots of cuddles:
And this was dirty pudding!  M&S say it serves 4 but with 14 profiteroles we couldn't work out what they thought a serving size was so that it was equal.
As always I spent lots of time with my lovely girl :)
We had some lovely sunsets.
Saturday was crop day and what a great start I had with a visit to Starbucks :)
Now I'm not a dress wearer but this one really caught my eye and I felt fantastic in it, I'm still deciding whether to buy it or not.
I joined in the crop sweep stake for the Grand National and WON!!! Maybe it's a sign that I should buy that dress!
I spent a bit of time with my great niece, as soon as she saw me she shouted "I haven't seen you forever and I've missed you", she makes my heart melt!
Sunday arrived along with a migraine so I didn't get much done, I just about managed to look at my lovely sewing.
So another great week and I'm really hoping this coming week is just as good - minus the migraine!

I hope you had a good week

Unlucky For Some - Week 13!

Another week has raced by and we're hurtling towards the end of March already! Here are my highlights of the week:

Five days of the week are spent in the office but I'm so lucky to work with my lovely girl :)
My reading glasses arrived so hopefully no more headaches now, well fewer headaches at least:
My afternoon snacks this week were massive strawberries, they were delicious but it seemed weird eating them in March because I always think of them as a summer fruit!
I had lots of cuddles with this boy, he slept on me for an hour the other evening and he was snoring like a train!
I managed to get some crochet done, this is a blanket I'm working on for Maddie.  I have eczema on my hands and wool really makes it flare up so I have to have long breaks in between working with it, it's horrible when you have a condition that stops you doing one of your favourite hobbies :(
I had a great night out at bingo with my BFF, we had a lovely dinner and although I didn't win she had a great win :)
At the weekend I said goodbye to my beloved Goldie :( This car really has a personality like Herbie from The Love Bug.  The man at the dealership asked me where Goldie was parked and then he spotted her.  She'd been washed, waxed and parked in the sun and she was gleaming like a bar of gold bullion! "Blimey" he said, "she is gold".
I then said hello to Sylvie and I'm really hoping she has a great personality too.  I know she'll give me my freedom back because everyone seemed to spot me when I was out in Goldie but now I'll blend in when I'm out on the road :)
I spent some time with my lovely aunt Sally, Sylvie's previous owner.
And I showed her my Project Life album, she loved it.  Once she'd looked at it she understood why I took pictures of absolutely everything :)
I also showed my album to my sister-in-law, Lisa, another one who thought it was great.
These two shared a kiss and a cuddle :)
I treated myself to some flowers and a glass of wine.
Dirty pudding was Swiss Chocolate and Salted Caramel Melting Middle Pudding and it was amazing!
I got week 12 in my Project Life album:
So I'm still bang up to date with that.  I love doing it so much that sometimes I wish I was still behind so that I had loads to do!
So this week really was a great week for us.

I hope you had a good week.

Week Twelve

Another week has passed already. It was a much quieter week round here, though. Here are the highlights.

I had the first salad of the year, it was delicious:
I bagged a bargain when I bought all of these little note pads from Wilkinson's for the grand sum of 50p!
I had a very early visit to the sorting office but it was to collect my Studio Calico kit so it was worth it.
A very rare treat for me:
I jumped on the bandwagon and took a make up free selfie to help raise money for cancer research, the campaign made £1 million in a day!
A trip to the opticians which told me I'm old and need reading glasses!  A positive though was that Maddie's eyes have stabilised so no new glasses for her.
My friend Sarah came over for the evening and had lots of cuddles with Alfie!
Oh look at this handsome boy:
I got week 11 of Project Life finished:
It's great being up to date :)
Dirty pudding was some a little different, they are delicious though.  I got them because Maddie's favourite sweet in a tin of Quality Street is the Golden Penny.
So lots of time spent with family and friends just chilling.

I hope you had a good week
