Week Thirty One Featured a Witch!

This week has been super busy so, better late than never, here are the highlights from last week:

My gorgeous niece Alice facetimed me while I was at work :)
I thought it was time for another before and after photo now that I'm at target :)
Alfie was very cuddly :)
We had a great night at the cinema seeing Spiderman.  Despite the look on their faces Sam and Emily enjoyed it too!
Although it's early August a rain coat is required when going walking!
Yummy dirty pudding :)
My boss took us out for a gorgeous Thai lunch. The food, which was cooked by my lovely sister in law, was amazing :)
We had some stunning sunsets!
Bingo enjoyed showing off his girlfriend, Monica, who's staying with him for a week :)
These two had lots of cuddles :)
I had two lovely wins at bingo :)
I met a lovely friend for breakfast, it was happy and sad because it's the first time we've got together since our friend Steph died.
Then I cut the grass and spent the afternoon in the garden with a coffee and a good book :)
Now it's nearly the weekend and I have some lovely plans.

I hope you've had a good week and thanks for stopping by

Five Favourites From March

I'm really getting back in to the swing of five favourites again.
I love going back and seeing what happened each month
Remembering the fun times
The stories new and old
Laughing at the crazy things we did!
And more than anything looking through the photos really does inspire me to get scrapping!

Thanks for stopping by

Week Thirty Bugged Me!

Week thirty had a bad start but it's not how you start it's how you finish and I certainly finished on top!

I started off the week by getting a stomach bug and having a couple of days off work, nurse Alfie stayed by my side the whole time :)
The weather has been awful and I had to hide from the rain under a tree when I was out walking!
I lost 2lbs, the biggest and greatest 2lbs EVER because they got me to my target weight!
And dirty pudding has never tasted so sweet :)
I went away for the weekend to see Pippy and Paul :)
We had a lovely walk along the beach :)
And around the town :)
I finally got started on this year's Project Life!
Paul made me this AMAZING vintage reversible apron, I can't tell you how much I love it!  He really is so talented :)
We went out for Sunday lunch to a nearby hotel.
Where the dinner was delicious :)
And after more walking we ended up at Frieda's where it would have been rude not to have a piece of cake.
Then I was home and back on plan because the easy part was losing the weight - the hard part will be keeping it off!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by

February's Five Favourites Finished!

At last I have finally scrapped my five favourite photos from February!

Lauren used to be my team leader but we soon became good friends.  She met me for lunch and let me know that she's moving up to Liverpool, I really will miss her :(
I felt very proud of myself going in to work wearing size 14 trousers and a size 12 jumper!
Zumba with Jo the person who inspired me the most to get off of my backside and start exercising!
Maddie winning her first Goodreads giveaway :)
I was dog sitting for Bingo and a few hours after this photo was taken he was really ill, thankfully it was only a 24 hour bug!
So that's another bunch of stories ready to go in my album.

Thanks for stopping by

Week Twenty Nine And Someone Got A Makeover!

Week twenty nine was a great one, here are the highlights:

I had Monday off work and it's become tradition now for me and Sarah to go out for breakfast the day after we've done a sponsored walk :)
I surprised Alice by picking her up from school but I got the biggest surprise when I saw the state she was in!
A quick trip to the shop and a dunk in the bath and she looked great after her makeover :)
The weather was lovely so I did some sunbathing in the garden with Alfie :)
And then had a couple of wins at bingo in the evening!
I had a great session at Zumba on Tuesday, never in a million years did I ever think I would enjoy it so much!
Maddie had some luck with a Goodreads giveaway :)
I had a great walk after work on Wednesday.
And then finally did some more work on my Moorland blanket :)
I lost one and a half pounds at Slimming and really enjoyed dirty pudding :)
I was up really early on Friday so had time to do some scrapping before work!
We had this sweet fox sunbathing in the garden, whenever he's about he is always accompanied by a little bird that won't stop tweeting!
On Saturday I spent some more time with Alice :)
And then I got trapped in Tesco when the heavens opened and the car park flooded!
I had another couple of very little wins at bingo :)
Sunday was scrapping day
Before going to see this little monkey along with the rest of the family for my nephew George's birthday :)
I spent the rest of the evening relaxing and crocheting.
This week hasn't had a great start, I've picked up a stomach bug (probably from Alice who told her mum she had something in her mouth just before vomiting everywhere!) and I've had to have a couple of days in bed :(

Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by
