Crochet Mood Blanket Week Thirty

It's been such a long time since I gave an update on my crochet mood blanket that you may have thought it was another project of mine that had slipped to the wayside....wrong!

I'm still getting on with it and enjoying the 10 minutes a day that it takes me to add a square and sew the ends in.

It's not a great picture but here's how it's looking now, 210 bursts of colour :)
I'm so pleased with it and because I've been good and joined as I go it means it's usable, something which Maddie was pleased about the other evening when she was chilly.

I won't leave it so long for the next update and will take a better photo.

Week Thirty

Last week went by in a flash, here are the highlights:

I had the day off on Monday and Paul very kindly laid some new flooring in my toilet to match the bathroom :)
I had a new gate fitted
My first letter from a new pen pal arrived
And I had a little win at bingo :)
My sister Jessica asked me to get her a calculator for work so I got her this one :) Jemma tried to steal it!
Tuesday was cinema night, we went to see Ant-Man and I loved it :)
We had a new telephone system installed at work, it was meant to be a 20 minute job but took 2 days!
Maddie has been really poorly but I did manage to coax her out the garden for some fresh air!
Some of my nieces and my nephew visited the office :)
We celebrated my nephew George's birthday :)
And I had dirty pudding :)
I bought a palm tree for the garden :)
I went down to Paul's for the weekend and had cake at Frieda's :)
He was unhappy because they'd sold out of red velvet cake!
We had a lovely visit from these great birds :)
Pancakes for breakfast :)
And a lovely treat before it was time for me to drive home :)
My weekend ended with a new follower on Twitter!
I feel refreshed and ready for another busy week!

Have a good one

Week Twenty Nine

Week twenty nine was another good one, here are the highlights:

Alfie managed to get hold of a pair of my trousers, he then spent the evening laying on his bed with them!
The boss treated us to Nandos for lunch :)
I spent a fair bit of time irritating Maddie in the office :)
I decided to get my cup collection down and give them all a good clean, it's a job I hate
But they all look so lovely when they're clean and hanging back up.  The woman I bought the place from also collected cups and had these hooks full of them, it's the thing that made me realise this was meant to be our home :)
I saw the cheeky Charlotte when I popped over to my mum's, she's hardcore because it was so cold!
Dirty pudding :)
We had some amazing sunsets :)
I took this last ever picture of the garden fence that I hate:
Before Paul the gardener and Little Roy ripped it out!
I also got my Paul laying a lovely new floor in my bathroom:
While they were all busy I took myself off to the hairdressers :)
And came back to my lovely new fence which makes my garden so much more private :)
And my lovely new flooring :)
We had a great night at bingo :)
And Paul even had a little win!
Sunday we went cake eating shopping :)
The dogs had a lazy fights, neither of them could be bothered to stand up :)
We enjoyed lunch in the garden :)
And then Paul put together my new swing seat :)
And put my lights up :)
I feel like I've got a whole new room in my house now that the garden is sorted :)

I had the day off work yesterday and I had hoped to spend it in my lovely garden, the weather had other ideas though!

I hope your week has started well.

Week Twenty Eight

Another lovely week is over, here are the highlights:

I had a little win at bingo :)
I had an unexpected lunch with a friend :)
Another migraine :(
The sun shone all week :)
I ate a fair amount of watermelon :)
And enjoyed an ice-cream in the office :)
A photo ordered arrived just in time for my crop :)
After work on Friday I cut the grass and then deep cleaned the bathroom!
I thought that earned me a lie down on the sofa but Alfie felt the need to jump on top of me!
We had lots of American treats at the crop for a belated 4th July celebration :)
Another little win at bingo :)
I went to Wimbledon to meet up with lots of old friends :)
Then had a well deserved cider :)
Before catching up on long overdue blog reading while watching 24 for the third time!
With a cheeky cream cake!

I hope this week is a good one.
