I may be on a roll and getting into the swing of things with the Sunday Sevens, now I’m into week 6. I have an app on my phone called Day One. I’ve used it in the past and it’s kind of a diary, so this week I’ve decided to use it to keep track of what I’m up to and it’s worked out better for me.
I’ve had a strange week. H is away in Italy skiing with the school. I wouldn’t say I’ve missed him, as in missed him and moping around all day with a long face, but I have been worried about him and constantly checking schools twitter for a glimpse of him on their regular feeds, so I s’pose I have missed him!
Not having H at home meant the pudding only had to be shared between the 2 of us! It was some sort of toffee & banana loaf cake from M&S. (and there’s me wondering why my clothes are shrinking!).
Anyone who sort of knows me knows Tuesday is my golf day (if I’m not working, but I try not to work on a Tuesday). Tuesday was a scorcher and our 3 ball all turned up in skorts. Mine’s a Yasmin Yoke Skirt worn with a short pair of shorts underneath, easier to sew than skorts I think. I took this photo with the aid of the timer on my photo whilst we waited to tee off on the 12th.
Then after golf we were invited to Afternoon Tea with a Twist ?!?! for one of the lady members 80th birthday celebrations. We had no idea what was going to be happening when we were ushered into the ‘big’ room to watch a demonstration on how to make truffles, then we had afternoon tea and scones, then back into the ‘big’ room to eat the truffles and have a sing-song and a dance! So I wasn’t planning on 2 photos for Tuesday but you got them!
Not a lot to say about Wednesday as Wednesday was well and truly blog worthy and has a post all to it’s self. Click HERE to read all about it if you’ve missed it!
I really needed to get some jobs done at home. I’m not really a list person, but I made one and managed to tick off most of what needed to be done. Craig cut the grass that evening but the big lawn mower conked out about 7/8’s of the way through.
We took my mum in law shopping. Her back yard backs onto a farm and 2 donkeys have come to live in the field this week. Not sure of their names yet, but they’re both pregnant and due in December!
Another animal picture! This is mini – my niece’s dog…… We had a family do today for my mum in law as she was in hospital at Christmas. So today we swapped pressies and had a lovely afternoon. Mini is smaller than my cat Rory, but Rory wasn’t impressed and disappeared upstairs for the afternoon! I tied this bandana round mini as Jean is now severely visually impaired and would have tripped over Mini, but she was able to spot the bright bandana.
Anyone who’s been following me for a while might recognise the bandana from when I made my 1950s outfit for a party last year.
