Weeek Thirty Two Included Holiday Day

Late again this week!  Week thirty three is almost over and I'm only just documenting what happened in week thirty two!

Maddie won another Goodreads giveaway!
Alice blew me a kiss via photo text :)
Zumba was fun :)
I met up with a very dear friend for lunch :)
I joined a new Zumba class, this one is all about dancing and I loved it.  My Tuesday night Zumba is toning so it's more weight work with dancing thrown in :)
I got another reminder of how far I've come!
I was Woman of the Year for my group!
But someone stole my crown!
I really enjoyed dirty pudding :)
On Friday my colleague drove home, over an hour away from the office, with my company car key in his pocket!  Not only could I not get in the car but my house keys, along with the keys to my own car, were locked inside it :(  Luckily the new boy in the office gave me a lift home via my BFF's, whose house keys I did have about my person, to get my spare front door key!  I managed to find my spare car key and this is the photo I sent to Paul letting him know that I was still going down to see him :)
With a much needed Chai Tea Latte for the road :)
It was lovely to get there and see this pretty girl again :)
Me and Paul don't have holidays but we do have holiday days, we decided Saturday was going to be a holiday day.  We got up early and drove over to one of my favourite places, Weymouth.  We had a coffee and a walk around the shops before heading to the beach and a walk along the prom.  I had the most amazing crab sandwich overlooking the harbour and watching the world go by.  In the afternoon we headed to Portland Bill and a cream tea at the Lobster Pot :)
When we got home we decided a great way to finish our holiday day off would be to have a walk along Bournemouth beach and dinner at Harry Ramsden's.  It was such a lovely day and we did do a hell of a lot of walking.
We then let holiday day spill in to Sunday and decided to go out for lunch, pudding was a delicious freak shake!
Then I settled down with my crochet and watched a film
Before I headed home to see my boy.
Now I already know what that weekend cost me on the scales and it wasn't as much as I thought it would be, I'll share it next week.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by

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
