Week Fifty

I can't believe we've reached week fifty already!  Here are the highlights:

Alfie has been finding it hard to get up in the mornings, the lazy hound!
It was so cold the pond froze over!
I still went swimming though, obviously in a swimming pool and not the frozen pond :)
Zumba was fun and the hall was very festive :)
Me and my girl spent a lot of time chilling :)
Santa visited the town :)
And then the building opposite work caught fire!
Tiles were ripped by hand from the roof!
Then they called in the big guns!
And the high street turned in to a car park for 12 fire engines! It took a couple of hours for the fire to be put out and I don't think there were any serious injuries.
I gained half a pound at slimming this week, my first gain in over 22 weeks!  I still enjoyed my festive dirty pudding though :)
After work on Friday I had to cut a set of broken lights off of the Christmas tree for the second year running!
Then I baked 18 mince pie cupcakes and 18 coffee cupcakes!
Before making 14 Christmas cards!
All for my Christmas crop on Saturday :)
I started the day as I meant to go on with a festive treat :)
Then a delicious buffet for lunch :)
There were homemade crackers and a secret Santa and it really was a great day.
In the evening I went out with the girls to the Christmas party at the bingo where I enjoyed my second buffet of the day!
Entertainment was laid on and the singer sat at our table to serenade the girls :)
On Sunday I was straight back on plan and up and out early to get my 10,000 steps done :)
I got the car cleaned.
And spent the rest of the day watching Christmas films :)
We had a lovely sunset :)
Maddie joined me to watch Elf :)
And then in the evening, after dinner, we snuggled on the sofa and watched Christmas Vacation while I finished crocheting a Christmas present :)
So I had a really lovely week and a fantastic weekend!

I hope you're feeling as festive as I am :)

Thanks for stopping by
