Saturday I met up with some friends for lunch. It was great to catch up with them, even better was the Key Lime Pie made by Clare:
Sunday I headed down to Paul's and found the sun!
Bank Holiday Monday was a day for spending money, which was fun :)
I finally got a new TV, well two actually but I figured that I haven't had a new TV in 29 years so I deserved it. The last new TV I had was for my 11th birthday, I still have it and, prior to the digital switch over it still worked! Anyhoo I got this for the living room:
A very dark picture but it's because Maddie thinks she's a vampire and likes to shut the sun out! I got this one for my room:
Tuesday saw my first date night with Maddie! We went to the cinema to see The Avengers, which was great.
We enjoyed going out together so much that we've decided to do it more often, like once or twice a month.
I had my first hair cut in over a year! Only one grey hair found which isn't bad for 40!
I started knitting more socks, these ones are for me.
I also managed to fit in coffee with friends, a visit to the pub and trying out this sarnie for lunch:
Tomorrow I would like to be scrapping but this will stop me:
Mine is the only garden out of the four in the cul-de-sac that's already had a cut this year but, as of today, I have the longest grass!
I don't think Alf is enjoying it much because it's so long it keeps tickling his bottom! Paul's away at Floriade (flower festival in Holland that only happens once every 10 years), so I have the weekend to myself to get the jungle sorted.
And the last thing to share is my new toy. After using a desktop that is past its sell by date and then using Maddie's old laptop I decided to treat myself to this:
My little notebook that I love :) I still feel a
bit very guilty about getting in but I worked very hard for my bonus and thought I'd have a big treat for a change :)
I hope you have a great weekend, I will be back to show off the garden when I've finished it (if the rain holds off)
Thanks for stopping by
