Week Thirty Five

Week thirty five was another good one, here are the highlights:

Here I am tanned from the weekend and glowing from a 55 length swim :)
I decided it was time for a change of colour on my toes :)
I had a great time at Zumba with Jo :)
I saw this loony!
And gave this lot some swimming lessons :)
I lost 2.5lbs and was Slimmer of the Week!
So I really enjoyed dirty pudding :)
I had a most unwelcome visitor who was there one minute and gone the next!
I made it down to Paul's just in time to see the last fireworks of the season :)
We went for a lovely walk and enjoyed a bit of people watching :)
With Autumn, my favourite time of year, just around the corner I decided it was time to get something on my hook :)
The weather wasn't great when I went for a walk but the beach was still packed!
It's so easy to get my daily 10,000 steps done when I've got the beach to walk along :)
I made some delicious, Slimming World, Lemon Curd Tartlets :)
And then spent the evening working on my ripple blanket :)
All in all it was a lovely, quiet week.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by

Week Thirty Four

Week thirty four was brilliant, here are the (photo heavy) highlights:

I cleaned the Smart car :)
I swam over a mile :)
I had a great Zumba session :)
And really noticed how the hard work is paying off, photo 1 was 01/01/16, photo 2 was 01/07/16, photo 3 was 17/08/16!
I did a 4 mile walk with a stop halfway to use the outdoor gym with a really great view.
Alfie had a visit from his friend Sarah and sent me this photo while I was at work :)
I maintained my weight loss this week but still enjoyed dirty pudding :)
I had Friday off work and went on a wet road trip
To a very wet destination!
But the sun did finally arrive :)
And so did the Red Arrows!
We ate...
And we drank :)
I spotted a photo of Paul on the Bournemouth Echo website!
Saturday was windy, very, very windy! There was an exceptionally high spring tide and parts of the beach, including the entertainment stage, were flooded!
And I could hardly take my eyes off of the amazing sea.  Me and my brothers and sisters have always loved swimming in rough seas and I wished they'd been there with me :)
We drank...
And we ate :)
And then it was my turn to appear on the Bournemouth Echo website :)
My heart was racing as I watched the Red Arrows perform in incredibly strong winds!
On Sunday the sun shone and the winds had died down.
We watched the Navy battle pirates (not the Long John Silver variety!)
And we watched the Red Arrows again.
And we ate!
Before, happy and tanned, it was time for me to head home.
To see my little girl and give her a massive Custard Cream!
So there was a lot of eating and drinking this weekend but me and Paul always treat the Air Show weekend as our annual holiday and we did walk over 25 miles!

I hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by

Week Thirty Three

Well week thirty three is over and we are racing towards Christmas!!! Woohoo :) Here are the highlights:

I completed just over a mile at swimming and managed to get a waterlogged ear!
I'm so lucky that my boss said I could watch the Olympics at work :)
I had a great Zumba session, the hall has been unavailable for the last 2 weeks and, even though the group have been walking instead,  I've really missed it.
After Zumba me and my girl went to see the new Star Trek film, it was brilliant!
We found another great outdoor gym on our 4 mile walk, I'll definitely be going back to this one!
Alfie spent a lot of time just sitting and watching me :)
I face timed my brother Jamie who lives in Thailand.
I saw my nutty nephew George :)
I lost half a pound and enjoyed dirty pudding.  I was also very proud to be nominated for the Woman of the Year Competition and so pleased for my friend Sue who won :)
On Saturday I was up so early I had time to do all of my housework, including washing the bedding and clearing the ironing pile, before going out for a 2 and a half mile walk at 9:30!
After walking and shopping I cut the grass, cooked dinner and had a night out with the girls :)
After a Sunday morning walk me and Sarah tried to sort our bikes ready to get some training in :)
I spent some time in the afternoon meal prepping for the week.
Before sitting down and having a little treat :)
Another great week and I'm really looking forward to the week ahead.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by
