You Can Never Tell How Long You Have Left!

I have had one of those days...
I received a sad phone call.
I had met up with a long term friend after ten years apart.
After his mum died in March, we kept bumping into each other.
Having long catch up chats.
The phone call was from his daughter, he passed away on Sunday :(
I dropped off my car at the garage.
Wow a nice shiny classic car was parked up.
When we got back, we did a walk of 2.77 miles.
 I hope I have a better Hump Day tomorrow.

Looking Through The Square Window!

Woo hoo it's the start of my holidays..

As I got a car repair and MOT bill to pay for at the end of the week :(
The money tree down the bottom of the garden is looking bare!
So while the kids went to Film Club
We did lots of window shopping today.
Found a lot of nice items to look at:
Treated ourselves to:

Driving Me Crazy.

The Friday Feeling soon vanished this afternoon.
Too be replaced by Friday Madness
Roll on to the second shift of JOB 1 
Went to cross over the road, taxi shot out of the junction, straight in front of me.
If I hadn't moved out of the way,I would have been knocked down.
This certain offending taxi driver has tried 3 times before to knock me down.
I feel like a cat minus 4 lives!
So glad it's my last day at work for 10 days.
Now to enjoy some much deserved Friday Feeling with a early night with warm hubby in even warmer bed!

Where there is Walking...Smoke Follows...

Welcome to Hump Of The Week.
I had a early night, so I woke up early...
Had a quick play with hubby.....
More walking, more baking, and more steam coming off my trainers!
I get to visit my dad 3 times a day.
(He might get a word in edgeways soon)
At least he shares my sense of humour in cups!

Quick Play With Kenny...

The sun is out once more.
The Pink Princess is off the road.
So using the next best thing....legs.
Been clocking up the miles, walking back and fro to work.
Be losing half a chin at this rate.
Stuck at home, what to do?
Oh yes, let's bake some goodies!
Out comes Kenny the Kenwood for a quick play!
Lavender shortbread followed by chocolate flavoured cupcakes....
 Now to try a sample of my baking ;P

Nearly Lost It!

The final week on the wobbly work wheel...
It's the Whitsun Holiday next week, woo hoo :)
Making the most of the sun!
Showing off some very white bits in the sunshine!
After Job 1
Headed off to Morton Stanley Park with friend to do some walking.
Didn't help once we started...
I lost my phone !!!
It disappeared into the inner lining of my bag..
I could feel it, and hear it.
Finally retrieved it!
Panic over!
  We did 1.87 miles in 1 hour and 20 minutes.
We enjoyed some damn fine filter coffee, from Waitrose afterwards.
Got some nice walking routes next week to do.
Shhh, just don't tell the children ;)

Always One Has Got To Be Moody!

The sun was back after the rain.
Making the most of the dry weather.
We tried our normal car park to the lake (It was full)
Drove to the other main one.
Now for a nice walk.
One child of mine, wore his moody face and dragged his feet behind him!
The Sailing Club was using the lake
 We walked 2.2 miles in 1 hour and 8 minutes!
Even had the energy to drag out Henry the Hoover for some hoovering of the house!

Handle Him With Care!

Welcome to the start of the weekend.
Fancy going for coffee? text message at 8.20am.
Sat in M&S slurping on my coffee by 9.20am
Afterwards we visited Pets At Home
I looked at the hamsters.
One grey long haired fluffy hamster was lay on his back asleep, showing  himself off.
(reminds me of my hubby when he is asleep!) 
'Umming ,'erring, & chewing on my fist on whether not to get him.
Family huddle to decide.
Let's do it!!
He nibbled through the two boxes on the way home
He was put in the new blue ball we bought for the rest of the journey home.
Welcome to Smokie Blue

Good Vibrations...

Making the most of this sunshine.
Dragged myself to do another Walk of Woe.
Not just once around the lake but twice!
Walked it in: 2.79 miles in 1 hour and 5 minutes.
Even the babies were out
Dressed head to toe in pink once more. 
By the afternoon, I was on the black coffee..
The matchsticks under my eyes were straining..

Too much of that I was doing as well ;O
