Week Thirty Six Was Exciting!

Week thirty six was a good one, here are the highlights:

I had Monday off work so stayed in Bournemouth for the day where I had the biggest scone I have ever seen!
I had a little win at bingo :)
I made a comparison!
Still having fun at Zumba :)
We had a quiz night and didn't do too badly!
I stuffed my face at the airshow and gained 1.5lbs, I'm still within my target range so enjoyed dirty pudding :)
I went out for dinner on Friday!
On Saturday I watched Jack play football and Alice play on the slide :)
And the spent the day at the crop :)
On Sunday I went to the Hilton Dartford for the regional finals of the Woman of the Year competition.  I didn't get through to the next round but I was 1 of 50 out of 250,000 who got to this stage so I was happy with that.  It really was a great day with so many amazing, emotional and inspiring stories.
Alfie was so excited to watch some of the sheepdog trials on Countryfile :)
So now I'm all caught up with what's been going on a Buckingham's Palace during the summer.  I'm really looking forward to autumn and the stories it will bring.

Week Thirty Five Was Fun, Fun, Fun!

Week thirty five was amazing, here are the highlights:

Monday was a Bank Holiday so I went walking with Sarah and Bingo:
Before spending the day in the garden, it was the hottest Bank Holiday on record!
So I cooled down in the best way I know how :)
On Tuesday me and my colleague Adam were invited by The Jockey Club to an afternoon at the races.  It included a 3 course meal and an afternoon tea!  I got to meet the lovely Clare Balding but I didn't pick a winner :(
On Thursday I went on a road trip :)
To the Bournemouth airshow. Friday was a great day for flying and having a look round before it got too crowded!
Saturday was another great day but it was packed!
Sunday was a wash out and all flying was cancelled which was a shame :(
I still had an amazing time though and can't wait to do it all again next year!

Week Thirty Four Included More Dogs

Week thirty four was a hectic one, here are the highlights:

I was still looking after the gorgeous Monica on Monday :)
Work was busy :)
I got my socks cast on :)
I took my hula hoop to Zumba and we all had a laugh with it :)
I moved in to my sister's to look after her dog Teddy while she was on holiday :)
More Zumba :)
Alice came home from her holiday and I had lots of cuddles :)
Another week at target, another dirty pudding :)
We all went for a walk with Teddy over Epsom Downs :)
And then we snuggled down and I introduced Alice to the film Hook :)
I was up very early on Sunday morning to do a paper round, a great way to start the day :)
I saw some more of Alice :)
And spent some time sitting in the sunshine :)
Before going to the club again for bingo.  We both had about 3 wins each but the winnings only totalled about £17.50!
So another great week is over and I'll be back to share week thirty five soon.

Week Thirty Three Had A Trip Down Memory Lane

Wow, summer got so busy and I was far too busy making memories to document them!  I'm here now playing catch up so the good times are stored somewhere until I have time to get them in my albums.  Here are the highlights from week thirty three:

I got some happy mail, my lovely Quirky Kit :)
I had a great evening at Zumba with Jo :)
Me and my neighbour found a lost cat, took it to the vets at 10pm and found out 12 hours later that the owner had been found, this is Fluffy:
I saw Rufus, I haven't seen him for ages and boy has he grown!
I had a second great session of Zumba :)
Still at target and still enjoying dirty pudding :)
The weather has been amazing!
I had a couple of lovely wins at bingo :)
I went to dog sit the lovely Monica, she really is a great dog and a pleasure to look after :)
I decided it was time to get some socks on my needles ready for the autumn/winter :)
I cut the grass and Alfie approved :)
Years ago we used to go to bingo on Friday and Sunday nights at our local social club but then we stopped.  Me and Sarah decided to pop down there and see if it was still the same, it wasn't and we ended up being the youngest people there :)
Looking back it was a good week and I'll be back in a day or two to share what happened next.

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
